    She's not a slave to fashion.

    In the various comments the Twitteratti are posting are discussions about what is appropriate for an attorney to wear into a courtroom.

    Many seem to think that this attire is...not courtroom-appropriate.

    And I think one worth telling. We tend to think it couldn’t happen again, but we see the seeds everywhere.

    I was last there in 2019 and saw none of that. Must have been a temporary thing during the major influx in the early days of the Syrian war.

    Or happenstance that you saw it and that I didn’t.

    Anybody for a fast, easy bean soup? Just made it, and it's delicious.

    Just for fun I added in like two drops of liquid smoke. Nice touch.

    Upon tasting, I think the olive oil is a bit heavy. Maybe make it 1/4 cup.

    As for the question, he’d have as much chance as Ronald Reagan would in today’s GOP. They’d both be lucky not to be booed off the stage.

    And we’re definitely worse off for it.

    Agree 100%. The extreme sides of each side seem to have the agenda right now. Unfortunate.

    Thanks, Phibes and GK. That's my favorite of Bach's fugue too, George, though now I don't hear it as well because of the repetition. My teacher's favorite is the E major from book 2. I'm trying to understand why it's so great. I think my ear is not refined enough. I will learn it one of these days.
