The Hopefuls

the hopefuls//

I’ve read two other books by Jennifer Close and enjoyed them.

This one was a little harder to get into, but I’m glad I hung in there!

It’s set in Washington DC around election time.

The storyline got a little strange, but it ended happily.

From Amazon:

When Beth arrives in D.C., she hates everything about it: the confusing traffic circles, the ubiquitous Ann Taylor suits, the humidity that descends each summer. At dinner parties, guests compare their security clearance levels. They leave their BlackBerrys on the table. They speak in acronyms. And once they realize Beth doesn’t work in politics, they smile blandly and turn away. Soon Beth and her husband, Matt, meet a charismatic White House staffer named Jimmy, and his wife, Ashleigh, and the four become inseparable, coordinating brunches, birthdays, and long weekends away. But as Jimmy’s star rises higher and higher, the couples’ friendship—and Beth’s relationship with Matt—is threatened by jealousy, competition, and rumors.

U2 Cancels Concert In St. Louis

I can’t imagine what it takes to secure the band and the team that supports them on a massive tour.

Then there is the 60,000 fans that come to the concerts!

The world is a scary place and there are so many threats they must have to consider each night.

Horrible events have taken place in St. Louis and the city is violently protesting.

The band decided to cancel the show because there wouldn’t be enough police presence to secure the event.

Because of the world we live in enhanced security is very much needed.

I feel bad for the U2 fans in St. Louis because the band doesn’t get there very often and it seems like it is being totally cancelled.

But I understand the safety of everyone comes first.


Live Nation and U2 regrettably announce their St. Louis show scheduled for tonight, September 16, 2017 has been cancelled.

“We have been informed by the St. Louis Police Department that they are not in a position to provide the standard protection for our audience as would be expected for an event of this size.
We have also been informed that local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity.

In light of this information, we cannot in good conscience risk our fans’ safety by proceeding with tonight’s concert. As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment.” – Live Nation and U2

Fans who purchased tickets online will receive a refund on the credit card tickets were ordered on.  Refunds for non-internet purchases will be available starting Monday at 10am at point of purchase.

From Bono on Instagram:

Deeply saddened at what has happened in St. Louis and having to cancel our show tonight….I found myself reading Dr. King’s speech from the National Cathedral and asking myself is this 1968 or 2017? – Bono

Human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability….we are coming to ask America to be true to the huge promissory note that it signed years ago. And we are coming to engage in dramatic nonviolent action, to call attention to the gulf between promise and fulfillment; to make the invisible visible.
