MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

I spent a 20-hour day volunteering as an election worker in the New York primary on September 12.

I decided at some point in the morning to grab a piece of paper and record several sections with my thoughts on the experience, and to document things that happened at the polls.

Labor Day weekend just passed.

My mother wanted to buy some thrift store spoon for a very specific reason.

I talked about getting a parking violation and getting towed a few weeks ago.

This week, I dwell more specifically on parking violations and the way things used to be.

The MTA has unleashed its "Summer of Hell" for commuters, specifically those who take the LIRR.

This gives me an opportunity to clear out a bunch of MTA-related articles I've been meaning to discuss on the podcast.

The day after I purchased a new car (discussed last podcast) but the day BEFORE I picked up that same car, I experienced a very long day.

I just finished a slow binge watch of Netflix's GLOW series.

Now I'm on an even slower binge watch of Showtime's revival of TWIN PEAKS.

Whether or not you binge, what's key is that you enjoy the way you watch your programming.

We just passed the Fourth of July holiday.

I did not see fireworks this year, but that's been the rule since my kids were born.

If I see fireworks, it generally entails a babysitter and lots of extra planning.

Congress tried to pass the AHCA in daylight and failed, so they went to cover of darkness and got the votes they needed.

The Senate attempted stealth passage but fell over their own feet. They will try again, but will need something the GOP hasn't shown recently – unity.

Former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath last week about Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

AG Sessions testified this week that Comey is lying.

One of them therefore committed perjury before a governmental body.

My money is on Sessions, who has a reputation of a weaselly, racist liar.

00:0000:00

It was a busy week, personally and in Washington.

We had a battle between the former FBI Director and the President.

We had accusations and lies.

And we have the impending specter of impeachment hearings.
