I can't muster any sadness over the death of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), with whom I had so many profound disagreements, and who gave us Sarah Palin, who I would argue paved the way for the president version of Donald Trump.

However, in thinking about who he was and what he did, it is impossible not to see the clear differences between an ideological foe and a pile of steaming garbage, the latter of which Trump is, the former of which McCain was.

Full McCain Obit HERE

I had an interaction with McCain.

RIP to Charlotte Rae, the indelible Mrs. Garrett of Diff'rent Strokes and The Facts of Life fame. She died yesterday at 92.

Though she was wounded by her husband's surprise, she was an LGBTQ supporter till the end, and had a recurring role on the 1975 series Hot l Baltimore, which featured one of the first gay couples on TV.
