5000 children?



Bad Weather.  Turns out I'm excelling in depression these days. Winning!

I think my eyebrows have a thing for my barber.  They can't get enough of her it seems.


Saw something interesting on the way to work today.  Think I'll start an exciting travel blog specializing on Sealy.  There doesn't seem to be one yet.


Dearth.  There is a dearth of travel blogs specialilzing on Sealy.

Ironysatire, and sarcasm all fall into the category of, "That's funny but I'm not sure what my English teacher wants me to call it."

SNL agrees to tone it down after he gets the codes.  Smart move.

When we devasted Japan and they surrendered agreeing to not spend much  money on defense....I think they found a better way to spend their money.  #Toyko #UnintendedConsequences #spoilsofNOwar

Virginian School Removes Huck Finn and To Kill A Mockingbird After Complaints Over Racial Slurs From A Parent

by jonathanturley
th-1th-2We have previously discussed the banning of masterpieces due to contemporary objections to language or content. It is an assault on classic works that threaten the foundation for education in our country. A recent decision from a Virginia school to temporarily remove "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain and "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee is a tragic case in point. The school reportedly pulled the books after a parent said her high school-age son was negatively affected by the inclusion of racial slurs in the books, which deal with racism in those periods.

A Bill Comes Due For Democrats: The Use of the “Nuclear Option” Will Now Curtail The Powers Of The Democrats In The Senate

by jonathanturley
gen_james_n_mattisIn 2010, I (and others) criticized the Democratic leadership (including then Majority Leader Harry Reid and many of the continuing Democratic senators) for their use of the "nuclear option" in curtailing the power of the filibuster. I was equally critical of Republican leaders who previously suggested such a course of action. It was remarkably short-sighted and, like so many moves during this period, impulsive. The Democrats acted with little concern that they might ever be in the minority and need this critical power. They muscled through the Affordable Care Act on a marginal vote that cost various members their seats and passed a highly flawed bill that was plagued by problems of bad drafting and poor planning. Moreover, they secured relatively few confirmations to federal office. Now, however, the bill will come due for the Democrats as they long for the minority rights that they so blithely threw away. The first such cost will likely occur in the waiver that will be given to Gen. James N. Mattis who has not satisfied the requisite seven years to pass since retirement in order to become Secretary of Defense.
