The Widdershins

Happy Weekend Widdershins!

Oy! Trump is still trying to stage a coup. Of course a melting Rudy Giuliani is not helping his cause. Nor is the fact that every time his lawyer get in front of a judge – where lying to a judge is a crime – they admit they have no evidence of wrongdoing in the election. But those are all just minor details in Trump’s scheme to destroy the country on the way out and the entire GOP is happy to play along. As one of them pointed out in an interview, since there was no “bloodbath” down the ticket in the election and they gained some seats in the House, they think supporting Trump is working. And so – here we are. Biden/Harris are asking private donations to help fund the transition. This is not actually unusual. Since at least the 1992 all Presidents have had to raise funds for the transition because the money provided by the government is not enough. (Seems like something they should fix, no?) But this is the first time, it seems, that the campaign has appealed to the people directly instead of just big donors and bundlers. Interestingly enough, a lot of the same people who complain about big money in politics on social media, are absolutely livid at the fundraising attempt because, they say, people have no money (fair) and Biden/Harris should just go to their rich friends… But these same people would set their hair on fire if Biden/Harris did that. So, everybody loses.

Millie Bobby Brown and Helena Bonham Carter in “Enola Holmes”

In any case, as a way to distract myself from the madness of it all, last night I watched on Netflix a charming movie called “Enola Holmes” that I highly recommend. Intended for a theatrical release, but landing at Netflix because of the pandemic, the film was co-produced by and starring Millie Bobby Brown – one of the breakout stars of “Stranger Things” on Netflix – it is an adaptation of a novel in a series about the youngest Holmes child, Enola (Brown), her two older brothers being Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock (Henry Cavill). Helena Bonham Carter is their mother and other wonderful performances feature Fiona Shaw and Frances de la Tour. Millie Bobby Brown is marvelous as the young heroine and aspiring detective who finds herself abandoned by her mother and with two indifferent brothers who haven’t seen her in so long they don’t even recognize her.
