There are hardly words adequate to describe the brilliance, good heart, and incredible example of FOX News contributor and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Charles Krauthammer, nor to express how deeply saddened we are at the news he now shares with us.
In breaking news, a team of physicists, astronomers and mathematicians at MIT has completed a study of the U.S. Department of Justice headquarters that finds it to be the bureaucratic equivalent of a Black Hole for documents.

One small part of a confidential letter written early this year to special counsel Robert Mueller by the Trump legal team (before Giuliani came aboard) and leaked to the New York Times had the anti-Trump media in a dither all day Monday.
During the 2016 election campaign, President Trump often compared Hillary Clinton to former Navy submariner Kristian Saucier to illustrate how the federal justice system was allegedly rigged to protect the powerful.

No thank you Eagles

Today marks the 29th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre in China. That peaceful student pro-democracy protest is mostly remembered now for the indelible image of one brave, unarmed protester standing defiantly in front of a Chinese Army tank, as if daring it to roll over him.

This Week's News Theme

June 1, 2018

There seems to be a theme to this week’s news: controversial comediennes derailing their careers by making offensive attacks.
The story at the link says that President Trump has been issuing or considering a number of “controversial” pardons, but I’m not sure I’d use that term to describe some of them.

Another big story that got drowned out by the Roseanne brouhaha on Tuesday was that Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens resigned, becoming the first Governor of Missouri to quit the office since 1857.

In the United States of America, one thing that’s not supposed to happen is the FBI spying on a presidential campaign, which we now know they did. But do you know what’s really, REALLY not supposed to happen?

Millennial of the Year

May 23, 2018

I think we’ve found the winner of the Millennial of the Year Award.

Mark and Christina Rotondo of upstate New York tried everything to get their 30-year-old son Michael, who’s been living in their house for the past eight years, to move out already. They offered him advice, pleaded with him to get a job and get his life together, gave him $1100 for moving expenses (he took the money but didn’t use it to move), cut off his food and phone, and finally resorted to sending him a legal eviction letter ordering him to vacate.

So, of course, he took them to court to fight it. Acting as his own attorney, he told the judge that his parents’ behavior toward him has been “really unfair to me and really outrageous,” and that “I don’t think trying to destroy someone is tough love.” He claims to have an income and a successful business, although he didn’t specify what that was; and he noted that he has a son himself, although he doesn’t have custody (there’s a surprise.) He said he plans to move out, just not today, or in 30 days, but he said he can’t imagine still being in his parents’ house three months from now (I’ll bet they can imagine it.) He claimed that three months is “reasonable;” still, he asked the judge to order his parents to let him stay for another six months. The judge called that request “outrageous” and ordered the parents’ lawyer to draft an order outlining terms of the eviction. But until an official eviction date is set, the judge allowed Michael to remain in his parents' home!

This is going to make for an awkward Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, I know Thanksgiving is more than three months away. Want to bet he’ll still be there?
