In a single zany sentence, this is how the once-promising summer of boxing ended: Triller, a social video app that is a much less popular version of TikTok, put on a pay-per-view fight between a 58-year-old Evander Holyfield (who hasn’t fought in a decade) and a 44-year-old mixed martial artist, Vitor Belfort — and paid former President Donald J. Trump and Donald Trump Jr. to serve as live commentators, all on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. (link)
Trump had hoped to box Biden in the main event (link), but I guess the money wasn't right.
This, my friends, is the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. It is Your Land. It is My Land. Stand Beside Her, And Guide Her. . . .
So maybe we've all gone mad. It seems so. And from what I read today (link), t.v. execs are going to feed us an endless stream of sci-fi/Marvel Comics entertainment until we all become addled teenagers once again. It will be the triumph of Clearasil.
And so it goes. There seems to be no sun today, so much of my photo dreams are cancelled for the umpteenth day in a row. I need sunlight for those glass plates. I may have to move on to a plan B. Or make more pictures of "things."
It is not much of a life for a peeper.
