Thank you, Anthony Sherman

Dear Anthony Sherman: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This morning I saw your courageous Tweet about NFL teams requiring COVID bracelets to identify those who have been vaccinated and those who have not. Here it is … Again, thank you. What this world needs, now more than ever, is

Who’s the pussy?

Received this e-mail a few moments ago … To say I love this e-mail is to delve into the greatest of understatement. It features all the hallmarks of excellence. In no particular order … • Irrational and inexplicable capitalization. • “Friends” “in” “quotes.” Are they not my friends? Or “friends”?

So this morning, for the first time in 1 1/2 years, I returned to my local basketball court to play Saturday pickup. I didn’t know what to expect. Truly, I didn’t. My last game was played in February 2020—a long stretch for a normal body, a loooooooong stretch for a
