Things I learned over the weekend


. The boss of JPMorgan is being questioned in two civil cases that allege his bank ignored Jeffrey Epstein's sexual misadventures. My bank is supposed to know about my sex life? And act on it? Kill the lights.

. The space between the letters in all these sentences? It's called kerning. K e r n i n g.

. Algonquin Park is 130 years old this month.

The Beauty Of Succession


It seems obvious that tonight's finale of HBO's Succession will join The Wire, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Game of Thrones as Classic TV.

Hope it's not an epitath for HBO, which made them all. WBD, or Max, or whatever the Warners multicorp's calling itself this week, seems intent on killing it.

Above, a five minute tribute to the photography, music and ambiance of the series.

And below, a funny line from every episode of the first three years of the series. (Tonight ends the fourth).

Seasons and individual episodes of the series can be purchased on YouTube or
