SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT:

HARRIS CONTINUES TO SHRINK – OVERNIGHT:  The vice president is suffering still more resignations from her staff.  Tells us all we need to know about her management skills.  From Fox:   Vice President Kamala Harris continues to lose staff with the departure of yet another high-ranking member of her team.  Kate Childs Graham, Harris's chief speechwriter, is leaving the vice president's office at the end of the month, sources told Fox News.  A White House official told Fox News, "Kate is leaving the office, but not the family. The vice president is grateful for her service to the administration."  "We are excited for her next step," the official added.  This is far from the first resignation for the vice president's team. The office has seen a virtual exodus over the course of her first year in office as staffers complain about their workplace morale.  That low morale was created by Harris herself.  She is famously cruel to her staff.  She is not a leader.  She is not an intellect.  She is not a builder of coalitions.  And she is one frail heartbeat away from the presidency.

A RECOMMENDATION:  I don't recommend books or movies very often, but I was recently sent a book that I can heartily recommend.  It is called "Secret War," by Captain Albert Schwartz, US Navy, retired.  Captain Schwartz was a submariner, and commanded the Ohio class missile submarine USS Michigan.  His book is a good yarn, but, much more important, it will tell you more about submarines, and the crews who man them, than any recent novel that I know.  If you have an interest in military affairs, and especially naval affairs, "Secret War" will be your guide and your reference tool.  Don't miss it.  It can be ordered for Kindle at

Hope you enjoy it.
