Believe me, this is a great great blog

He's amazed
This blog is amazing.

Believe me, it’s very influential around the world. Best on the planet.

I’m expecting major offers to advise world leaders any day now.

Believe me, this will be tremendous and amazing, and very very big.

Some days, I have to wonder why I didn’t leave my absolutely stunning career in print journalism sooner. Readers from those days have been crying out for my byline now that I’m gone.

They are amazing readers, believe me.

Of course, I’ve had some help from the gorgeous, brilliant and talented vice president for overseas operations here at the huge and important World Headquarters building.

You can recognize it by the huge and amazing sign over the door – It’s Personal World Headquarters.

Nobody else, believe me, nobody else is able to put important and meaningful thoughts down in the English language like I can.

Huge fans the world over are recognizing this, from the South Pacific, to Asia, to Western Europe….amazing, amazing people reading every day.

You know, some of the people with small intellects are not so appreciative.

But they are troubled people, some are bringing drugs, some are bringing crime, some are rapists.

 Oh sure, some of the Little People may be good people too, and I expect to be hiring hundreds more of them in the future. They can check to see if my computer system is plugged in and things like that.

It will be amazing, believe me.

But the wire service piece on Hillary Clinton and what purportedly was a large number of Clinton Foundation donors sashaying through the State Department is getting knocked, and hard.  Here’s the headline on a Vox piece, for instance: “The AP’s big exposé on Hillary meeting with Clinton Foundation donors is a mess” It’s here: http://www.vox.com/2016/8/24/12618446/ap-clinton-foundation-meeting






  • What’s a day without a little Donald Trump news? Hardly worth living, right? So, as you have read, the new-model Donald seems more temperate, until he’s not. Politico report that he strayed from the script and told a Tampa rally this: “We’re going to build a wall, don’t worry about it. We’re going to build the wall and Mexico is going to pay for it, 100 percent. And it’s going to be a big wall. It’s going to be a real wall. It’s going to be as beautiful as a wall can be, but it’s going to be a real wall.” http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/donald-trump-rally-off-script-227374







Thursday's Photo: September Morn




This one is a bit of a departure for It’s Personal, but it’s stunning, yes? It’s a 1912 painting by Paul Chabas, from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It’s called “September Morn,” and if the temperatures around here are any indication, it’s already beginning to feel like early fall. The title of the painting is also the title of one of Neil Diamond’s best, which begins this way, “Stay for just a while Stay, and let me look at you”
