Islands of Support Lose Infrastructure as Presidential Tweetstorm Wreaks Havoc

@realDonaldTrump tweets last hopes. As the indictments roll in, President Donald Trump (PDT) has taken to Twitter as his choice platform for denouncing the Constitutional protections provided by the foundational documents of the nation with which he’s found himself executively charged. It was reported that PDT was clearly discombobulated due to a lack of sleep, setting the stage for an afternoon, post-siesta announcement that PDT may not be serving its original purpose. This was the first clear indication of the…

Happy Birthday to Kurt Vonnegut

Happy Birthday to Kurt Vonnegut

Happy Birthday to Kurt Vonnegut who was born 94 years ago on this day in 1922. He died in 2007, so this quote obviously refers to the Bush Administration, but I think it will have even more resonance on January 20, 2017. I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been.

Ten questions for a Romney White House

Ten questions for a Romney White House

I look forward to finding the answers to these questions and more once our crack journalists and Edward R. Murrow inspired media outlets have a chance to do their jobs. But now that I think of it, I wouldn’t care about the answers to any of these questions if the media were doing its job.

US Alcohol Consumption, why W.C. Fields didn’t drink water, and man urinates in Portland reservoir

From Laphams’ Quarterly: • In the 1790s in the United States, the average American over the age of fifteen consumed almost six gallons of pure alcohol per annum. The modern figure is 2.8. • As to why he didn’t drink water, an inebriated W. C. Fields purportedly responded, “Fish fuck in it.” From the Oregonian: Because a 21-year-old man [who’d been drinking alcohol] was caught on a security camera urinating into a city reservoir, Oregon’s biggest city is sending 8…
