Bette’s Happy Hour attendees learned that my mom was rushed to ER with terrible chest pain and while she is still being evaluated, she is responding well to medication today, and I got to spend the night with her, holding her hand. Thank you to everyone’s well wishes for my mom — I shared them with her, and it brought a smile to her face. As I always recommend, make sure the last words you say to loved ones are kind, so you can live by my mantra — Je ne regrette rien.
A big loving thank you to HiFi, Lori, Dan, and Dee for carrying our meeting yesterday. I don’t know if it’s the German A-type in me, but I didn’t want to cancel, because I know I need these community wellness checkins, and judging by how big our group is growing week to week, I’m guessing some of you do, too. Thank you to everyone who attended, and I also suggest Monique and Olga’s weekly Kremlin File Lounge meeting. I joined in this morning from my mom’s bedroom, and she was delighted to hear well wishes from friends as far away as Italy.
If you have a moment, HiFi dropped RadPod’s Labor Day compilation, a highlight reel of some important moments featuring Jason Stanley, Ruth, Brent Allpress, Keir Giles, Dr. Evita March, Wes Clark Jr., Brianna Wu, Alex Alvarova, Alex Winter, and many more.
Now, on to our our fabulous invite for Sunday…

Here are more details about the upcoming ‘Speakeasy’ with Thom:
Sunday, September 10, 4 pm PT
Bette’s ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salon — featuring Thom Harmann. As many of our members know, Thom is a New York Times best-selling author of 36 books in print and the #1 progressive talk show host in America for more than a decade. Thom has co-written and been featured in 6 documentaries with Leonardo DiCaprio about climate change. A former psychotherapist, entrepreneur and refugee worker helping the worldwide Salem group start homes for abandoned and abused children all over the world, Thom’s daily Substack writing is at www.HartmannReport.com. Thom and his wife Louise live in Portland, Oregon with a small menagerie of cats, dogs, ducks & geese. Thom has been kind enough to feature my work on his show, including my report in Byline Supplement, ‘Unmusked: How Elon Musk is Using Twitter to Destroy the Concept of Objective Truth’. As always, I ask that those who can, please support his substack and his writings.
Looking so forward to introducing Thom to the Bette community, and a big loving thank you to his wife Louise for helping to set this event up.
I am so glad you are here.
