Just Have A Hunch That Donald J. Trump Will Be Out Golfing During John McCain’s Funeral.

I HOPE I am wrong. But, I just have this hunch. It is a long, holiday-weekend. Trump will hit the links.

I can’t find where he will be spending the weekend. I doubt whether it is the White House and even if it is, he goes out to his golf clubs in Virginia.

The only thing that can save us is rain, but we don’t want it to rain on John McCain’s parade. [I gather it rained quite hard when his body was being taken to the Capitol on Friday.]

This is NOT going to look good!

Yikes.

I HOPE I don’t have to remind you that he did GOLF during dear Barbara Bush’s funeral! That was idiotic.

I Hope Donald Trump Is NOT Planning To Golf Tomorrow As The Texan Parents Grieve.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. His Tweets from Friday afternoon, May 18, 2018.


When will ‘they’ see the light?


Common human decency would dictate that the ‘White House‘ should show a sense of gravitas and decorum this weekend.

We can’t just brush these incidents away as routine — though, alas and alak, that is what they have come.

I really hope he does not go golfing on Saturday, May 19, 2018 as if nothing of import has happened. For 9 sets of parents their lives were altered, unimaginably, in a second.

Let’s wait and see. I know what I am thinking. What do YOU think?

“Tommy’s Honour” Movie (2016) On Amazon Prime — More Than Just Golf; Engaging Human Drama.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access IMDb.com listing for this movie.


YouTube trailer.


Watched it because it came up on our Amazon Prime Video list.

I was a tad worried that it would be very golf-centric — and golf has no appeal to I. I find it exceedingly boring and pointless. But, we were pleasantly surprised. The golf is in tasteful moderation and easy enough to watch. The rest is a rather engaging human drama about families: fathers, sons, lovers and wives. Very well put together. Makes you want to know what happens. Has you rooting for some. Plus it is shot in luscious Scotland. Not bad at all. I would recommend it.

If you like golf, that would be a huge bonus. Lot of history about the game and even how golf bags were invented. Wow.

Why Does India (& Sri Lanka) Suck At The Olympics?

From the “Wall Street Journal” — and YES, they name cricket as ONE of the FIVE reasons. Click image to access original WSJ article.

Past Summer Olympics from “olympics.org”.


As I talked about yesterday, in my post about Rio 2016 medals/population, it just does not make sense why India with the world’s 2nd largest population ONLY got 2 medals.

China got 70.

Sri Lanka is guilty as well, with ZERO medals (again), though with 21 million people, it is the 57th most populous country in the World.

But it is the stark difference between China and India — the only two countries in the world with a BILLION PLUS population — that gives you pause.

Yes, I (like the WSJ article) instinctively knew that cricket was an issue.

In India, Sri Lanka & Pakistan cricket is the national poison — and cricket, as yet, is NOT an Olympic event.

India is NO LONGER a poor country! So they can’t use that excuse.

This is crazy. India has such a huge and diverse gene pool. They also play tennis and golf with gusto.

Just does NOT make sense.

India (and Sri Lanka for that matter), so PROUD of their cricketing prowess, should be ashamed that they can’t compete, even halfway decently, in other sports.

Enough said. Indians already have got the message. Not sure about the Sri Lankans. As I always point out, when I am mistaken to be an Indian, that Sri Lankans, alas and alak, are NOT as good looking or as smart as Indians. SMILE. [I can say that, of course.]
