Having spent the past 48 hours helping my wife get settled back home after what appears to be a very successful stem cell transfer, I get to tweet about four guys whose political rage has no use for subtlety or discretion.

The great Carola Dibbell worked hard on the long-aborning Xgau collection depicted here. Pub date October 26. Pre-order from . Carola returns from the hospital today in rather good shape! So I'll be home a lot. Phoners welcome. Readings possible.

Time flies when your wife's in the hospital. That's why I forgot which Tuesday was coming up. Learn more in this belated edition of Xgau Sez. Next one should be two Tuesdays from now, but as with Expert Witness, Carola will remain my priority.

As an aspiring young critic, O'Rourke used colorful language, as over-the-top in its moral dudgeon as its descriptive excess, to deride the visual objectification of women in American culture. He has nothing to apologize for.

Here's a story of universal interest that didn't appear in the Washington Post. Wonder why.

Regarding Noname album I'm loving: it's available from Bandcamp, a more artist-friendly vendor than you-know-who.

Three brave, quiet, rather brilliant women, only two of whom figure directly in this week's Expert Witness: Noname, Syd, and Christine Blasey Ford.

"Erupts" overstates the noise level somewhat, but yeah, he bragged and a lot of them laughed. Putin didn't even need a puppet--just a buffoon.

I look forward to reading well-reported follow-ups detailing who exactly authors Goldman and Schmidt are as well as the internal NYT politics of the story's publication. Were they to include something about Hillary's emails that also would be good.

You're wrong, Joe. That's the third "disc" of a triple album.

Though I'm older, I happen to know many people who went to Yale around when Kavanauigh did. I'd be curious what any of them has to say about Kavanaugh's all-male secret society there, Truth and Courage, which some report was also known as Tit and Clit. .

This has been said many times in many ways, but bringing in the Central Park Five is highly relevant context.

Style note: no need for the "alleged" in this nonetheless welcome tweet. Even in the unlikely event that any of these loathsome pigs wasn't an abuser, the grammatical construction implies rather than asserts guilt. Rantt could wiggle out of a lawsuit just like they could.

As a Yankee fan disconsolately following the Toronto game via MLB as I write and listen, let me right now laud Aaron Boone for lifting Lance Lynn after five one-run innings. He's a five-inning pitcher who might make a terrific long man. Now let's pray no one homers off Robertson.

Let's hear it for Democratic State Senate candidate Jessica Ramos in a 55-45 kind of primary victory. She graduated with none other than Nina Christgau from the Academy of American Studies in Long Island City in 2003.

I voted for her. I hope she gets over 40 percent.
