Some interesting reading to get you through a lazy Sunday:
Frank Rich on the decline and Foxification of network news. The University of Miami gets ready to host the first presidential debate next week. The Dalai Lama spoke to thousands yesterday in South Florida. “So often, we look for external things — money or influence or friends — and neglect the inner life,” he told his listeners. “Human affection and loving kindness, I believe, are the most important values. “You can make happiness from inside yourself, then your family. Then you can transform the big human family on the planet, without a government program.” Amen. Doonesbury on the ultimate driving machine.
Speaking of driving, I’m going on an Occasional Sunday Morning Drive before settling in with some Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee (a birthday present) and the crossword. Enjoy the last Sunday of summer.
