I have never read the second half of “Inﬁnite Jest”; I have never read “The Art of the Deal,” by Donald Trump; and other shared attributes. By Ethan Kuperberg
I love television.
I have almost zero understanding of international politics.
I have not exercised in 2017.
I have never read the second half of “Infinite Jest.”
I have never read “The Art of the Deal,” by Drumpf.
I know it’s silly and will never happen, but I secretly wish that Barack Obama were my best friend.
I have been scared every day since November 8, 2016.
I’m not as good at having sex as I think I am.
I am related to Jewish people whom I don’t understand.
A waiter once forgot to charge me for a drink at a restaurant, and I did not tell him to adjust the check.
Melania Trump has no interest in having sex with me.
When I get really stressed out, I like to watch the film “Finding Dory.”
I have recently Internet-stalked the people who bullied me in middle school.
I need more therapy than I am currently undergoing.
I look awful in hats.
Hillary Clinton is much smarter than I am, and I know it.
I would rather win an Emmy than be in politics.
I would rather win a free drink at the Coffee Bean than be in politics.
Sometimes I wish that dogs could talk. I wonder what they would say.
Not to harp on it, but “Finding Dory” has a plotline that I find easy to follow.
I am not on the correct medication.
I have a recurring nightmare in which my father tells me that he is not proud of me.
I have never had a one-on-one conversation with Tiffany Trump that lasted for longer than ten minutes.
I’m pretty sure I’m not gay, but every once in a while I see an attractive man and I think, Geez, that guy is good-looking.
I hope they make a sequel to “Finding Dory.”
I think that Paul Ryan is a fucking wimp.
I will never understand what it’s like to be a Syrian refugee.
It’s embarrassing to admit, but all I want, deeply and unequivocally, on any given day, at any given hour, is to have someone look me in the eye and tell me, with complete and profound sincerity, “I love you.”
I have never been democratically elected President of the United States.

Two explosions, at least one caused by a suicide attack, in the departure hall at Brussels Airport killed at least 14 people just before 8 a.m. local time, or 3 a.m. Eastern time.
About an hour later, an explosion at the Maelbeek subway station in central Brussels, not far from the European Union’s core institutions, killed at least 20 people and wounded more than 106.
Was it terrorism?
Officially, Prime Minister Charles Michel of Belgium said there was no information about whether the attacks were related to the arrest last week of the main surviving suspect in the assaults in and around Paris last year that killed 130 people.
In addition to being the seat of European Union government and the capital of Belgium, Brussels has become a focus of counterterrorism investigations, notably since the Paris attacks.
Officials have also been concentrating on a particular Brussels neighborhood in an investigation of an Islamic State recruitment network.
Who did it?
No claims of responsibility have been reported.
What is Brussels like now?
The city, with a population of about one million, is virtually shut down. The Belgian prime minister is asking residents to “avoid all movement” as the authorities brace for the possibility of additional violence.
Flights to and from Brussels Airport, the city’s main international hub, are suspended.
All subway lines on the Brussels network are closed, as are the Eurostar trains that connect Brussels to London and the Thalys trains that link the city to other European capitals.
The European Union complex is locked down. Only employees with badges can approach the building.
Joe was born in Malden, Massachusets on September 14, 1987 to Rose Hornedo and Bennie Catino. In 1992, Rose moved to Brockton with Joseph and his younger sister Gina Catino, where Joe spent his childhood and young adulthood.
He made life-long friends and loving memories with his family throughout the years.
The family moved to Florida in 2005, where Joe truly began to find himself.
He had developed a great passion for Japan, especially anime.
He found many kindred spirits in Florida. He loved conventions, COS play .. with devotion to One Piece, The Straw Hat Crew.
He found a soul-mate in Monkey D. Luffy.
Joe had aspirations to become a writer.
He wrote several fictional short stories and also poetry.
Joseph was an exceptionally unique soul. He believed in the good of people overall regardless if they fall at times. He loved unconditionally. He was a beautiful combination of childlike impishness and the wisest of old souls. Joe left a lasting impression in all those who met him.
He will be truly missed!
Joseph is survived by mother: Rose Hornedo, his sister: Gina Catino, his brother-in-law: Joshua Diaz, his niece: Leilani Jolie Diaz, his nephew: Liam Joseph Diaz, his mother’s partner: Lydia Medina, his boyfriend: Kawon Davis, the Catino family, the Hornedo family and countless extended family and friends.
~~MESSAGES FOR JOSEPH CATINO~~
A beautiful spirit made the transition early morning, February 27, 2014, as a soft rain fell ever Orlando. Joe Catino, son of my friend Rose, both of them two of the sweetest, strongest and brightest souls I know, brother to Gina, beloved uncle to Leilani and to the little nephew who will never see him on this side of the Veil, but will hear earfuls of Uncle Jojo stories as he grows up, and beloved of Kawon, another beautiful and pure soul, lost his brief but ferocious battle with cancer early today. To his very last conscious moment, he kept his sense of humor and playfulness, and reflected back on those around him the deep love that surrounded him.
Go in Beauty, Joe, just as you walked in it throughout your life.

A young warrior faced a battle bigger than life itself. He used all the “weapons” he had at hand. All possibilities were considered, all opportunities explored, all avenues where taken. In the end the battle was bigger than his heart.
Joe’s earthly form is no longer with us. However, his heart, his memory, his spirit will always be imprinted on the hearts and minds of those that he “touched” …. knowingly and unknowingly.
His light isn’t extinguished. He will be forever within reach.
Heaven has a new angel … .and his name is Joseph Anthony Catino …
