The colorful explosion of light in a dark rainy night reminds me of experiencing the lights of Paris around the Seine past midnight listening to Sinatra with a professor friend on an experimental pill that enhanced all the senses and intensified your instinctive sensory direction, as my mind got lost for hours in the Parisian street lamps and their reflective colors off the ripples of the Seine. I love the contrast in what might otherwise feel gloomy -- rainy, dark, night, alone -- yet the color, the light, the reflections create this wondrous glow of flowing, positive energy and a light, joyful spirit. A good way to go through life, no matter the circumstance.

1. "18 months into the pandemic and it is still clear that masking children is an ineffective policy not supported by research or data." A good aggregation of well-cited sources. https://covidreason.substack.com/p/masking-children-is-an-ineffective

2. A left perspective on the insanity of Covidmania: " I would suggest instead that outbreak be applied to these frantic upswells of bureaucratic overreaction. Perhaps the epidemiological origins of this diseased mentality could be “contact traced.” https://mtracey.substack.com/p/academia-is-establishing-a-permanent

3. "20 states have passed some form of protective language from COVID-19 vaccine mandates or vaccine passports in some capacity. These states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Utah."

I might have to try this. Party spicy, part smooth. Very seasonal. In spirit with Bourbon w/ Barnes. A magical mix of water, honey, pear, cinnamon and ginger. The solicitation solicits well: "a warm bourbon undertone, with a sweet note from the pear nectar and a spicy finish the ginger simple syrup." The artisanal arts of the cocktail attracted me before I stumbled into Harry's New York Bar in the backstreets of Paris (the inventor of many a cocktail and a few marriages) or stumbled out of El Floridita in downtown Havana (the haunt of Hemingway where the bartended invented the daiquiri), birthed from the cocktail creations of a Croatian buddy of mine in Milwaukee who mastered the arts young with a simple instruction: think like a chef, not a bartender.

Five stories of interest to top the day...

1. Another challenge to the risk/benefit analysis of vaccines, especially for the young and healthy, as vaccine-induced "changes in biomarkers that could serve as early warning indicators of elevated predisposition to serious diseases. Most importantly, the clinical trials did not address long-term effects that, if serious, would be borne by children/adolescents for potentially decades." https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S221475002100161X#bib0110

2. Kirsch's vaccine information. https://www.skirsch.io/vaccine-resources/

3. Controverted early reports of Arizona audit results. I will discuss the released actual results tonight on Bourbon w/ Barnes. https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/573780-arizona-draft-audit-report-shows-biden-widened-lead-by-360-votes

I honestly prefer it if I were the Jury, as this poster from the 80s remake of the famous Mike Hammer film from the 50s reminds me of oh so well. Spillane's creation graced my television waves as a kid in the Mike Hammer tv show. From the great 40's detective novelists and characters like Sam Spade and Phillip Marlowe, the well named Mike Hammer fought for justice his own way, as the aptly titled description depicts: I, The Jury.

A favorite image of mine, represented in a painting that hangs in the courthouse where I currently am trying a case that comes to a close Monday. When facing perceived insurmountable odds, I am reminded of this image, as a group of Americans decided to go where no society had gone before in their memories: establish a Constitutional republic, recognizing the people as the source of all legitimate power, the rule of law as its governing tool,. the democratic republic as its implementing instrument, and the rights of man as its guiding light, against centuries of rule by dynastic monarchies, corrupted institutions of influence, and self-serving aristocracies of inbred privilege. The revolution of thought surmounted even the revolution of power, and it changed the world forever, for the good, following in the footsteps of those who fertilized the seeds of these ideas in their smaller, less successful struggles in the centuries prior. Sometimes the impossible is worth fighting for, no ...

Stolen from a board member. A great black-and-white photo of Times Square on a rainy day during World War 2, a great reminder of the more difficult times humanity confronted. The hanging lamps, the streetcars, the cars in the streets, the light dancing in the water on the streets crafting their own rivers of reflection, the vintage billboards, the meandering strangers, the subway walkway down and the Flatiron building ahead. All a reminder that Americans beat the King, beat the Nazis, and beat the Commies. We can beat what comes next too.

A photo reminiscent of where I must try a case this coming week: the Greensboro 4. 4 Freshmen decided to use the sit-in to desegregate one Wooldworth's. They were told at the time, by other black workers, they were no-good rabble-rousing, troublemakers who would change nothing. They refused to forfeit. Their resilience launched a nationwide movement that began the process of desegregating the south before Civil Rights laws even passed Congress. A small step that leaped the world.

My favorite clock from one of my favorite places I visited. Nina Simone magically sang of time, and her soundtracks hallmark beautiful films in a trio of favorites in Dancer Upstairs, Thomas Crowne Affair, and Before Sunset. This famous astronomical clock sits in the center of Prague, where the ancient dances with the contemporary as the city feels like a time transcendent place where modern bars end in centuries old backroom monasteries. Just in Time.

Diego Rivera might have been a lush, a lech and a part-time Commie, but the man's murals made great labor-celebratory art. His Detroit mural series captured the creative power of American labor harnessing technology to its will with determined, impassioned energy that the murals unleash on the viewing audience. You feel the unfettered force and determined will of the workmen. A worthy dedication to the workingman on Labor Day.

When the natural world paints for the human eye with its geologic wonders. An underwater cave, with colors and shapes so surreal, you double check its real, and not a painting by Picasso protege. I love the wild, flowing shapes of the rock, the striking, streaking bright colors of yellow and purple, the disappearing caverns beyond, and the reflections within the Caribbean blue waters below, as sunlight slips out just out of sight to the right. I'd like to set up a little reading cubicle inside here, where I could chill, contemplate, mediate, reflect, and just enjoy for hours and hours.
