Song of the Day: 'Sweet Dreams' by the Miraculous Love Kids

Today's Song of the Day that allows you to give back. 

Vicki Peterson of the Bangles writes:

Girls in Kabul, Afghanistan, have limited options -- but thanks to guitarist Lanny Cordola, the girls in Miraculous Love Kids are finding some joy, singing and learning to play guitar. I was so happy to be invited to record with the group and many incredible American artists, including Wayne Kramer, Kathy Valentine, Tom Morello and Cherie Curie.

Remains of the Day (10/26)

Own a lib, lose a job? 

Each vote should count equally. When will this nation become woke enough to admit the Electoral College was designed to protect slave states and abolish it once and for all?  

Books will be written ... for decades to come 

Last night some readers were alerting me to a triple X video purporting to be of Hunter Biden and all I could think was: Wow. What a great closing argument for why Donny deserves a second term 

It's almost as if hypocrisy is their brand 

In his letter of resignation from the Federal Salary Council, Ronald Sanders called the order “a smoke screen for what is clearly an attempt to require the political loyalty of those who advise the President.” 

Bette Midler is game for 'Hocus Pocus 2'! 

Maybe better with Harvey on there! 

Reminder: Election Day is a week from tomorrow. I can't wait to cast my in-person ballot!

Weekend Tennis Diary

Being a tennis fan is never easy, as demonstrated this weekend when all three finals went the way I didn't want them to. First, Alexander Zverev crushed Diego Schwartzman 6-2, 6-1 for the bett1HULKS Championship crown, his second title in as many weeks in Cologne. (Family photo selected because of very big brother Mischa.)

 Ugo Humbert captured his second ATP Tour title on Sunday with a 6-1, 7-6(4) victory against heavily favored Alex de Minaur in the European Open final in Antwerp.

And then in the all Belarussian final in "Czechia," Aryna Sabalenka -- whom I like but I have given up on rooting for because she always loses big matches, a la Madison Keys and Lindsay Davenport -- blasted Victoria Azarenka off the court, 6-2, 6-2 to win the J&T Banka Ostrava Open, her second title of 2020. (Sabalenka might actually win a major one day assuming she can find seven opponents in a row suffering from migraines, as Vika apparently was.)

Sabalenka also took home the doubles title, teaming with Elise Mertens to defeat Gabriela Dabrowski and Luisa Stefani 6-1, 6-3.

In men's doubles ...

John Peers and Michael Venus added a third trophy to their 2020 collection on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-4 victory against Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop at the European Open in Antwerp.

Raven Klaasen and Ben McLachlan won the bett1HULKS Championship on their team debut, defeating two-time Roland Garros champions Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday for the trophy.

In Challenger Land ...

Lloyd Glasspool and Alex Lawson lost to Andre Begemann and David Pel 5-7 7-6(2) (10-4) in the doubles final of the event in Ismaning, Germany.

 (This tournament isn't really newsworthy, but any excuse to post photos of Lloyd.)
