Yesterday’s appointment with my Prosthetist went, well. George seems more stable and my knee is healing. When I returned home, I tackled that insurance snafu. The fifth person to whom I spoke was the Billing Manager of the Radiation Oncologist, whose bill had been denied. He said that they do have an approved referral, that there must be an error in the paperwork, and that he will get it approved. That was almost painless. Then I had to attend a community meeting for Fair Market residents in my building. And then I watched the convention. That made George very nervous, and I has to assure him that this one is completely different from Rump Dump and his Rectumites. Other than my normal chores, I have no more appointments this week. That’s a good thing because it’s very hot and muggy. Temperatures in the high 80°s and low 90°s are forecast for the next ten days and the humidity is sitting at 77%.

Today’s took me 3:50 (average 5:40). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Raw Story: [B]ernie Sanders fired up his supporters at the Democratic National Convention on Monday afternoon — until he mentioned the need to elect Hillary Clinton.
While Sanders drew cheers when he trashed Donald Trump during his address, the audience erupted into boos when he said that “we have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.”
How disgusting! If those regressives truly backed Bernie, they would follow his lead, not boo him for telling the truth. Shame on those hypocrites!
From YouTube (MoveOn): Party of Trump: David Duke, KKK and White Supremacy
Barf Bag Alert!!
What’s the different between the GOP and KKK? Anymore, not a damn thing!!
From Salon.com: Comedian Sarah Silverman took the stage at the Democratic National Convention and announced that she “feels the Bern — but not to worry, she put some cream on it.” She later attacked those who, unlike her, refused to recognize that they’d be betraying what Sanders stood for if they don’t support Clinton.
Clearly frustrated by the chorus of boos and shouts from Sanders supporters, Silverman snapped: “Can I just say to the ‘Bernie or Bust’ people — you’re being ridiculous.”
That may be the best line to date.
From Miami Herald: After quitting her national Democratic Party leadership role amid furor over thousands of leaked emails, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz now faces the political battle of her lifetime back home in South Florida.
Wasserman Schultz resigned as Democratic National Committee chairwoman Sunday, strengthening the hand of her primary opponent, Tim Canova — who saw a huge fundraising boost and national media attention following her decision.
While the Weston congresswoman spent Monday morning getting heckled by protesters in Philadelphia at her first public appearance since her resignation, Canova was in the district giving interviews to local TV stations, Univision and The Daily Beast — and meeting with constituents.
In light of recent events, I fully endorse Tim Canova for Congress, and feel we should urge Jo Biden to cancel his planned fundraising event on behalf of Wasserman Schultz. I trust the petition mavens among you will find the links for that. There should be no place in the Democratic Party for Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
