Re: Elizabeth Warren

Looks like [Sen. Warren] is 1/1024 Native American. What does this now mean for affirmative action? Absolutely nothing. Which also describes the advantage Warren derived from reporting her distant heritage on forms when prompted: exactly ZERO. Such data are collected for lots of reasons having noth...

Note the irony that a sign from a home security company looks it was damaged or chewed off! :o

Re: KO on SportsCenter 6pmE tomorrow 10/2/2018

Looks like he was on again tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018) at 6:00 pm Eastern, 3:00 pm Pacific. And since he only Tweeted about this only a couple of hours before the fact, I missed it again. Marie is correct; Keith needs to have a regularly-scheduled show. So, in the meantime, I’ll just program...

Re: KO on SportsCenter 6pmE tomorrow 10/2/2018

Unfortunately, ESPN doesn't seem to keep recently past videos of SportsCenter on their website. :-( It's because of the highlights. They've always had trouble getting permission from the various teams, networks, etc., to put their content up on the site since the SportsCenter clips would serve as a...

Missed him last night. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpGPvSWV4AADQqC.jpg Just have to check from now on, I guess.

'McPaper' now publishing Trump 'opinion' op-eds

USA Today already had its problems being accepted as a "real" newspaper (less text/more pictures than My Weekly Reader).

This makes it look like they've just given up --

Don't look for a USA Today fact check column any time soon.

Splitsville: Trump & Nikki Haley

Who didn't see this coming? Especially after the anti-woman Kavanaugh debacle, Nikki Haley must be wondering what the Sam Hill she's doing in this administration. Everyone has predicted great things for Haley in politics. She could be a senator. As an Indian American, many rednecks don't see her as ...

Wall Street bankrolls Democratic candidates in effort to restore balance

Re: YAY! Columbus OH dumps 'Columbus Day'

Christopher Columbus belonged to an age that was past, yet he became the sign and symbol of this new age of hope, glory and accomplishment. His medieval faith impelled him to a modern solution:

Genocide.
