First Monday Motes, For 2023

A must watch: Over the weekend we watched a documentary on Amazon Prime called “Wildcat”. We both found it incredible. It will cause tears, smiles, laughs, and “warm and fuzzies”. After you watch it, tell your friends.  

Is it only me: Pfizer wanted the vaxx data sealed for 70 years; the CIA sealed the JFK  records for decades; the J6 “investigators want all their interviews and testimony sealed for 40+ years; the Epstein/Maxwell client list is sealed until?; Anyone notice the pattern?

First great headline of the year; “Walrus Wanders Into Harbor, Masturbates, Falls Asleep, Ruins New Year’s Fireworks”. Going to really have to work to beat that one.

A step in the right direction: Brazil’s President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva has said that he will appoint an advocate against Amazon deforestation as the head of the country’s environment ministry, marking a sharp departure from the outgoing government. Lula announced his final batch of cabinet appointments in a press conference. One of the most prominent names was Marina Silva, who will join the cabinet as environment minister. Born in the Amazon rainforest, Silva was a child worker in the rubber industry who overcame illiteracy to become a Goldman Prize-winning environmental organizer. Her appointment indicates that Lula’s administration plans to crack down on the illegal development and resource extraction that has devastated the natural forests.

A sad Good-Bye: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, the shy German theologian who tried to reawaken Christianity in a secularized Europe but will forever be remembered as the first pontiff in 600 years to resign from the job, died Saturday. He was 95. Benedict stunned the world on Feb. 11, 2013, when he announced, in his typical, soft-spoken Latin, that he no longer had the strength to run the 1.2 billion-strong Catholic Church that he had steered for eight years through scandal and indifference. The Table of Heroes seemed to need a Chaplin. R.I.P. Benedict.
