‘Nuff said. But two tidbits anyway.
A Book Review . . . Gary Belis panned The Art of the Deal way back in 1988:
. . . everything you always suspected about the makeup of Donald Trump: the pomposity, the shallowness and above all, the need for more money, more toys and more attention.
They’re spending millions to raise my street three feet so it doesn’t flood at high tide. Restaurants at whose umbrella-ed sidewalk tables I used to sit last winter are now three feet below-ground. The tables are still there, but now I sit at tire-level, as the cars go by above.
Perhaps instead of a beautiful 900-mile wall […]
And of course, it’s much broader than Pakistan.
Any religion taken to extremes becomes a scourge. My ideal world would stand on two legs: logic and the Golden Rule.

I suggested UPIP at 77 cents in September and bought more at $1. In case you’ve noticed it at $9.70, don’t be impressed. It split 1 for 12. Which means we paid, adjusted for that, $9.24 and $12 for each share we now own. But Aristides’s Chris Brown thinks UPIP may be an even […]
Have you seen the list of nihilistic password-recovery questions that’s going around? Examples: “What is the name of your least favorite child?” . . . and . . . “On what street did you lose your childlike sense of wonder?”

So. As described Monday, the Donald and his fellow Republicans insist things are awful.*
This has left a significant chunk of the Fox electorate yearning for a strongman.
That’s what people do when things are […]
But first, even though you’ve surely already seen it:
A Texas grand jury convened by a Republican district attorney at the urging of the Republican lieutenant governor cleared Planned Parenthood . . . but indicted the folks who made the video that led to five Republican-led Congressional investigations. (Still, with the ninth Benghazi investigation underway and […]
Gail Collins had a great column about the Republican field last week, worth reading in full, from which I draw just this:
Under normal conditions, if a party was confronted with a candidate who had never held any public office, whose political activism consisted mainly of trying to prove Barack Obama was born in Africa, […]
Monday we took 13 minutes to celebrate not just the end of the Iran War but our not having had to fight it in the first place. That saved us a couple of trillion dollars. Tuesday we added quality years to our lives. Wednesday we explored the big win-for-America that is the TransPacific Partnership. And
