I decided not to go to the "March for Science" today. Maybe I'm a wimp, but it is raining in DC, and with a nearly six hour flight home later in the day, that just isn't that appealing.

narciso, on your post on althouse 'dead columnists tell state', about Gov. Cuomo's commutation of the getaway driver, I checked the comments and the first one made me lol:

"it’s hard for me to understand who is served by making her die in prison, which is what decisions like this eventually amount to."
"I agree. She should have been executed years ago."

(I would put quotes in italics, but I'm not certain that I could 'undo' italics and someone would have to fix it for me. :(

JiB, thanks for that "fookin" joke.

Sorry Iggy! I just don't want to sit on the plane with wet clothes and feet.

Gotta check out.

DrJ,

I don't blame you. The good news is that if it's raining, it will depress turnout.

An oldie that passed by in email.

I talked to a to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.

He said, "Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage."

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?"

"Oh no, nothing like that," he said. "No, no.... I was PAROLED"

Considering his many BKs you would have to dispense with VOODOO in favor of something more criminal like Walter White and the sad story of PEAK AVARICE.

This is a long but interesting discussion of the problems in France, many similar to our own.

Well worth reading.

When I couldn't sleep last night I found an interesting series on Acorn TV -- Line of Duty. I watched episodes 1 and 2. It's British, police anti-corruption unit investigating a decorated officer. A couple of weeks ago, I watched another Acorn cop drama, The Level. Liked it, too.

We have watched Vera, DCI Banks, Inspector Lewis, Jackson Brodie series on Kate Atkinson's books, the Thorne: Sleepyhead and ScaredyCat series until we've almost worn them out (streaming them, so they can't actually be worn out, though I might be able to recite lines in some of the shows :) -- anyway, just thought I'd recommend the two new shows, plus the others, in case anyone is trapped inside by the cold, wind, and rain like I am.

Thanks for the Powerline article on "global warming," JimNoCal 9:12

When I went on the White House web site to give my ObamaCare feedback a while ago I signed up for a daily email. For anyone with "info underload", here is a typical list of topics.
It's set up like instapundit, a title and a "more" link. The Weekly Address is like an embedded You Tube.

"That "97% of scientists agree" ---TOTALLY #FakeNews."

Yes.
And never critically examined by the media. Another fave over the years was "Bush cancelled the Kyoto Treaty" on climate. Senate voted against (98-0?) during Clinton's Admin, then Bush ignored it.
Yet the AP repeated endlessly that Bush pulled us out of the treaty.
I'm sure there are many more.

We'll be praying for your family's friend, Marlene, and for your children who love him.

Reading the overnights reminded me of how grateful I am almost the entire width of America lies between me and Berkeley.

Watched Mel Gibson's wonderful "Hacksaw Ridge" last night and again this morning because I loved it so. Highest possble recommend.

KK are the reports, that Berkeley's mayor belongs to some antifa Facebook group, for real? Or could it be hoax or spin? Day-um.

rich:
You were talking to yourself last night but making some very good points.
Marlene:
Prayers for your son in law's friend.
JIB:
Glad you are on the mend.
Try to ditch the Percocet as soon as you are able.
MM: Wonderful that the rally is the same day as that windbag dinner.
The article on Pat Buchanan is a good one.
I am confident in President Trump and know everything will work out fine in the end.
Over 41 million dollars raised by the RNC.
Fox has moved on from OReilly but I have to say that after putting Fox on the map for the past 20 years their unceremonious cashiering of him just reeks of ingratitude in my opinion.
Proves the old adage:
Anybody is replaceable.
The Five moves to 9:00pm.
I will watch Fox Business or just read a book.
There are only so many strung out liberals I can listen to on Carlson'sprogram.
I would love to have Greta's opinion of why she left.
