Wow, Melinda. Burke being Chief seems to go even beyond our standard Illinois practices.

From Monty James (a commenter at Ace of Spades): It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.
I'm amused by the never-Trump people who saw the light and came over to grudgingly support him. This series of tweets has them wetting their pants again. They will eventually figure out that this was a good political move.
I just got the nicest handwritten thank you card from Daddy's daughter and his wife.

Stephanie, I was having trouble too, but it cleared up when I killed Facebook and restarted it.

As long as we're talking SAT scores, I might as well chime in. My score was somewhere north of 1400 (enough that I was a National Merit Scholar) and I was fortunate enough to be recruited by dozens of schools. I chose my University by how close it was to home and how high it was on the Playboy list of party schools. Go SIU Salukis.

Thank you, TM. I have a love for many people who comment here. Daddy was near the top of that list.

If you like olives, you need to go to Corning, California. It's not on the coast, but it's beautiful, and is known as the olive capital of America. Many delicious olive oils to taste, and every type of olive product you can think of (and some you didn't). A bit south of Redding, on the 5.

Hadn't been on for a few hours. Got the news about Daddy on Clarice's Facebook page. What an absolute shock. I never met him, of course, but he made all of us feel like we knew him personally. Wonderful man, and great story teller. Condolences to his family.

Cohen seems to be the sleaziest person connected to Trump. But then, if you're going to have a "fixer", I guess you need one willing to play by the rules of that game.

Their press and ours are trying to push this as a disaster. However, it seems the British economy is performing better than the EU economy.

Porch, I especially liked "rainbow haired land whales".
Good idea, aaron@1:17
I saw that $5.7 billion had already been spent a couple of years ago. Can't find a more recent number.

On the subject of eggs in the microwave: A coworker (about 30 years ago) decided that he would like a warm hard boiled egg for breakfast. He took a cold (peeled) boiled egg and put it in the microwave. He did 30 seconds at a time, until it was nice and warm to the touch. Then, he took a bite of it. When he came to work, he had blisters above and below his mouth, as well as in and on it. It seems that egg whites are nearly transparent, but the yolk soaks them right up. The egg exploded in his hand and mouth when he bit it. So, be careful heating boiled eggs in your microwave.

Unmasking of morons is not a pretty sight. Sort of fun, though.

Just a note on CW-II I've lived in rural areas (town population 250), urban areas (population in the millions) and lots of places in between. If a fight comes, the rural areas and small cities will populate the militia, along with whichever urbanites feel the call. The rural folks are very heavily armed, and trained marksmen. A very large percentage have military experience. There are, of course, those who would be on the other side in a battle. They are typically neither well armed nor well trained. Most have no military ecperience. Law enforcement would almost all join the militia and fight against "the government". Military families abound in rural America. Their children, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, etc would not turn on them nor on others like them. At worst, they would refuse to engage. More likely, they would join with the militia, either individually or en masse. The gang bangers would hardly be likely to join with the folks they have considered their oppressors, and would likely stay out of the main fight. The sides would not be divided geographically, like in CW-I. The entire nation would be at war with those with government power. The war would be brutal, but short-lived. Desertions would start very quickly after commencement of hostilities, and continue until the end of the conflict.
Wow! Jonah and Allapundit both in one post. Maybe next time throw in Glenn Greenwald too.

Dave (in MA), Thanks for the warning on the first link. I avoided it.
