In Coming Days:
Celebrate America, a celebration of the country and its veterans originally scheduled for Nov. 12, is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Florida Agriculture Museum, 7900 N Old Kings Rd, Palm Coast. The free event will feature all the vendors, all the musicians, all the Veterans Day ceremonies that had been scheduled. Nova Rex, a band formed in 1985 and ranked among the Top 50 greatest hair-metal bands from the 80’s by VH-1, will be the featured act, with John Bisaha from the Iconic band The Babys. “They’re going to do a family-friendly show, by the way,” Ayres says. They’ll perform from 3 to 5 p.m., and Matt O Ree Band will perform at 1 p.m. See details here: “Celebrate America Rescheduled to Nov. 19 at Ag Museum, Freedom Fest at Flagler Airport in March.”
In medias res: A warning from Kevin D. Williamson, the national correspondent for The Dispatch, about Trump: “He is not as weak a candidate as many people might expect — or hope — him to be. I believe he is most likely to be the 2024 Republican nominee for president, and since we have only two major political parties, he could win in the general election — and that would be bad for the country. […] a Republican Party that is in disarray and divided by bitter recriminations and factional rivalries is the perfect environment for him. After all, bitterness and recriminations are his main instruments, and it is when Republicans are at their lowest political ebb — when they are feeling the most vulnerable, victimized and marginalized — that Mr. Trump is at his political best.”
Now this: “I don’t like to think of myself as ambitious,” he says. He being Donald Trump. Letterman’s eventual reaction to Trump’s cageyness: “You act like you’re running for something,” and later, to Jimmy the Greek, says he “looks like a candidate somewhere down the road.” This is in 1987.

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves. but they can get very excited by those who do. That is why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest, the greatest and the most spectacular.
–From Donald J. Trump’s Trump: The Art of the Deal (1987).
