Yesterday, a peculiar day in history — ‘You get the idea. This abundance of twos and zeros makes Feb. 2, 2020 the first international palindrome day in 909 years (since 11/11/1111), and it won’t happen again for another 101 years (12/12/2121) on the Gregorian calendar.’
And also yesterday, a factoid note appeared on my iPad: During last week, my use of the device was up 116-percent, which averaged-out to four hours and three minutes a day.
Are the two connected? I’m feeling hypnagogic in a surreal way…
President Trump congratulated the 'Great State of Kansas' after the Chiefs' Super Bowl win. They play in Kansas City, Missouri https://t.co/5b55PPBTr4

In a twist on reality, an example of our predicament –per the Washington Post this morning:
While the state of Kansas is home to a goodly portion of the Chiefs’ fan base, the team is actually based in Missouri — leading to plenty of guffaws, even after Trump deleted the tweet.
Former senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), for one, declared Trump a “stone cold idiot.”
Her former colleague, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), was more forgiving in speaking to reporters Monday.
Said Blunt, who had attended the game in Miami: “You’d be surprised how many members of the Senate say, ‘The Kansas City Chiefs have to be in Kansas, right?’”
Yes, that’s right, a bunch of ignorant toadies, they’re all stone-cold idiots…
A smorgasbord of a cluster-fuck.
