Today is SuperBowl Sunday. And Groundhog’s Day.

It also represents a Palindrome for the ages:

  • 2020-02-02
  • 02/02/2020

Backward and forward, and both ways dates are typically written internationally. Cool!

The sun is out. It’s cold. Maybe there will be a beautiful sunrise tomorrow? Sunset last night was, by all reports, er, um, cool!

Niners vs. Chiefs

I’ve been a Niners fan since moving to the Bay Area in 1986. I half-rooted for the Niners and Chiefs this season when I was paying attention to football at all.

What does I’m with Kap mean?

He protested and paid the price, which is what you have to do when you protest! So no more football for Kap. Was the protest worth it? And what’s my role?


The Democrats got Health Care passed. ACA, aka Obamacare. And then they lost and lost and lost.

Was it worth it?

Is the goal to win, to keep power? Or is the intention to enact good, helpful policies?

It’s complicated because, without power, you can’t enact. And without power, you can’t protect and grow what you’ve adopted.

It appears America, the experiment, is failing. What can turn it around? Important question since we’re electing a President this year, not to mention one-third of the Senate.

Politics, as currently set up:

  • the media
  • social media
  • $$$
  • Personality
  • Message
  • Vision
  • Strategy

All these things are problematic at best.

Happy #PalindromeDay!
