  63. I did not catch yesterday's Obama's address  after the police killings in Baton Rouge but I did hear rebroadcast parts and I hope he was talking before a mirror because he, above all others, needs to take to heart what he said.
If memory serves me, he has rushed to judgement and made inflammatory  comparative rhetoric time and again.  Though he remains President Cool,  I suspect he is seething inside because of the criticism he is receiving for the part he has played in presiding over race relations that are at their lowest point in decades.

This week's Convention could go down in history as one of the most disruptive or it could turn out to be relatively calm. Time will tell.

If the former occurs rest assured Hillary will blame Trump because Democrats no longer benefit kicking GW  and they need a new straw man and he has straw colored hair. 
My oldest daughter called my attention to the fact that in my last memo I wrote "Marshall Law" when I intended to write "Martial Law."  I wrote her back, after thanking her for catching my error,  that I always think of Gen.George Marshall, for some reason.
