A Lost Day

Technical problems – no internet (or cable television) all day – there was an area-wide outage here in Hollywood. These things happen. And of course, when everything snapped back on in the middle of the evening, it was far too late to do an adequate survey of the day’s events and then consider their complex implications. These things take time, and access to the national conversation.

That’s for tomorrow, even if it was a historic day. Consider the following:

Politico: Clinton Clinches Democratic Nomination

The Hill: Sanders Camp: Clinton Has Not Secured Nomination Yet

Michelle Goldberg at Slate: Clinton Reportedly Clinches Democratic Nomination, but Nobody’s Pleased

Time: Why It’s Easy To Forget Hillary Clinton Is Making History

Politico: Trump Takes Credit for Breaking ‘Glass Ceiling’ for Women

Dana Milbank: Republicans Finally Discover That Trump is an Actual Racist

We live in strange times.


About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.
