All of them, both sides. The election's over. These guys should be working on how to run the country. 

And if they're not up to it we should dump the lot and get some real first-graders to get it done. 

Reading stuff like this makes me want to just go back to bed

It’s a completely perfect summer day …

…for doing absolutely nothing: Hot, humid, a little dark and rainy, thundery (bit not too much). Lucky I've got a good book. And Mozart.

Store in a Cool Dry Place

Are you kidding? There is no cool dry place here and there won't be until at least December. So here's a shout-out to the guys at the Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company:

Fat Chance

It’s been a busy week so far here at Yet Another Media Empire…

…more work than usual to avoid…which is probably why our ever-harried newsroom missed this communique from our Seattle Desk when it arrived a couple of days ago, herewith in toto…

At first I thought Trump wanted to be the first US dictator. He has the bravado and greed involved, but he's not smart enough. Doesn't know enough about how dictators work. Then I thought he wanted to institute a US oligarchy. That might work. He's probably good at passing out goodies and getting rich on the kickbacks. But, that's not it either.  

What we've done is given up the White House to a crime family. Think about it. The leader of the group is . . . wait for it . . . The Don. Now that Donald. Jr. has found his ass in the grinder, he has lawyered up. He hired Alan Futerfas. As the Huffington Post put it, "Later Monday, Trump Jr. announced he had hired Alan Futerfas as his lawyer. Futerfas is known for representing the GambinoGenovese and Colombo crime families." 

It's all just too perfect.
