    To the person(s) who set off fireworks over Alki at 4am. Look, it’s bad enough that you felt the need to announce your place amongst the selfish, narcissistic, unthinking and/or unfeeling dreck of humankind. But then as I lie awake in bed before dawn – on a Saturday – I have the passing thought, “hmmm, I suppose it’s a possibility they are celebrating the news that Trump has died”. Take a long look at what you’ve done. How dare you! How dare you provide me a faint and fleeting glimpse of hope and comfort during The Darkest Times. For shame I say! Now would the champions league final please hurry up and start so that I can crack a beer and start to forget about, well…you know…everything.

    No Dolly Madison at Admiral Pub tonight, due to Dolly and Al being out of town for the holiday weekend. Just confirmed via phone with the Pub.
