I did not watch the debate last night. My one-liner on that is that I have never been fond of horror movies. "The Lady and the Buzzsaw" is not an appealing title.
Instead, I spent part of the day in Portland, visiting my ailing friend and her equally friendly husband. Many of you will know who they are. We conversed, insofar as that was practical, listened to Tchaikovsky (she had once expressed unsatisfied curiosity about what's going on in his Serenade; well, I can help with that), and had takeout tacos for dinner. I am very glad I saw them, and hope I contributed a little cheer and variety to their day.
As for why I was in Oregon at all, that is another story for a later post.
