It is Tuesday, June 7, 2016, and I’ll shortly fly back to Chicago after a restful visit to Boston and Cambridge. (Posting will therefore be light, but remember that you get it for free.) The news says that Hillary Clinton has clinched the Democratic nomination for President, so we have the first woman candidate from either major party. On this day in 1893, Mohandas Gandhi committed the first of his many acts of civil disobedience, refusing to move from the first-class section of a train. Notables born on this day include Paul Gaugin (1848), Gwendolyn Brooks (1917), and Liam Neeson (1952). Those who died on June 7 include Jean Harlow (1937), Alan Turing (1954), Dorothy Parker (1967), E. M. Forster (1970), and Henry Miller (1980). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili and Cyrus reminisce, sharing a semi-tender moment:
Hili: You see? In the beginning you wanted to eat me.Cyrus: And I regret sometimes that I didn’t do it.
Hili: No widzisz, a na początku chciałeś mnie zjeść.
Cyrus: I czasem żałuję, że tego nie zrobiłem.
Gus: Got catnip?
