Dear Karl Rove,

With any luck, my grandchildren will still be alive.

Yours truly,

Frank.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

I am ashamed of my country and of its having a major political party that panders to, stokes, and relies on bigotry.

I shall stop now, because all I have left is profanity.

Addendum, the Next Morning:

Crank Bear has the profanity so I don’t have to.

A local Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates has proposed an Indiegogo campaign to build roads.

It would be simpler if he and his fellow Republican legislators faced up to their responsibility to maintain the Commonwealth, but that’s not going to happen, now, is it?

Now they need recess consultants, apparently because third graders’ unstructured play is a bad thing.

One more time, is there some sort of intelligence test persons must fail so as to become school administrators?

(Remember what a consultant is: Anyone more than 50 miles from home toting a laptop bag.)

The scammers have a new target.

Conversation is building in Washington on this question: Would the FAA be better able to handle its regulatory duties if the day-to-day operations of air traffic control were privatized?

The FAA, in a burst of sanity, is against the idea. Those who favor are it, natch, the folks who believe that there is no such thing as the public good.

Details of the con at the link.

In a magnificent example of f(l)ail, Ashley Madison has decided that its users’ information is copyright and is issuing DMCA take-down notices to try to scrub it from the web.

Afterthought:

As a money-making enterprise, Ashley Madison is toast, and soggy toast at that.

He must think he is truly a special snowflake.

The crime is more common in Western mountain towns, where people cut down – even poison – their neighbors’ trees for a better view.

But “vanity logging,” as it’s sometimes called, could apply to the alleged acts of a lawyer-turned-Zumba instructor who lives outside New Hope.

Police say David L. Topel felled 22 of his neighbor’s old-growth hardwoods – preserved by a conservation easement and worth $260,000 – because they obscured his deck’s southern vista.

“Lawyer-turned-Zumba instructor.” How he missed his true calling as a Wall Street bankster will forever remain a mystery.
