The Trump Administration is revoking California’s Federal Waiver on emissions 9th Circuit leftist judge rules against this in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... Seriously, I wasn't aware they could do this, and not sure it's a great precedent, but we'll see how it shakes out. I never quite understood why the car makers couldn't respond to CA rules by just limiting which cars they sell there, as opposed to limiting what cars they sell everywhere.

If you watch that CBS report, Norah O'Donnell looked very disappointed.

In today's politic, Cokie Roberts and her dad would be Trump republicans. Cokie was pretty negative on Trump (as no doubt required by her employer), but she was critical of the Democrats for their impeachment craziness.
Of all the libs on the news shows backed when I watched them, Cokie (along with Jack Germond) was relatively sane and civilized. Most of you probably know she was the daughter of Hale Boggs, a congressman who died in an Alaska plane crash.
Israeli exit polls saying Bibi won't be able to form a government. So he probably will, if their exit polls aren't any better than ours. https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/elections/.premium-israel-election-exit-polls-netanyahu-gantz-1.7854652
I'm a bit slow on the trigger tonight. A couple of glasses of wine will do that.
Jane, often the default password is on a label on the modem. Check there. Otherwise there should be some sort of 'forgot password' option to reset it.
Best wishes, PD in D.
How does an investigation of one payment (completely legal on the face of it) get a subpoena for 8 years of returns. Does a judge have to sign off on it? And is there no appeal or recourse? It’s such an obvious fishing expedition.
Did Meeka ever wonder who Chelsea’s dad is? Would love to see that 23andMe test.
Vance should be in prison for his many abuses of power. Wasn't Vance involved in the non-prosecution slap on the wrist of Epstein back in 2005? He should be persona non grata everywhere.

I never "knew" that the Country music would have never happened without African slaves bringing the banjo. Heh, reminds me of that Snopes/Babylon Bee thing I posted yesterday about fried chicken (the claim that Colonel Sanders stole his recipe from a black person, as if blacks invented fried chicken).

LOL Captain, I was about to suggest "High as a Kite."

MM, you mentioned Obama and Netflix. The WSJ had a piece the other day pointing out the whitewash job of this new movie about a factory closing, a movie from Obama's production company Higher Ground.It’s a fascinating and at times moving film. What’s interesting about it, though, is that it never once alludes to the part Mr. Obama played in diminishing the ability of Moraine’s laid off workers to transfer to other GM plants. The president’s role wasn’t indirect and isn’t a matter of dispute: His administration’s bailout deal for GM included a backroom exclusive agreement with the United Auto Workers. Presumably behind the paywall, but here's the link: https://www.wsj.com/articles/obamas-incredible-movie-makeover-11568412774

A pretty funny chapter in the ongoing Snopes vs Babylon Bee battle: https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2019/09/15/babylon-bee-accurately-predicts-snopes-fact-check-nine-months/ Snopes takes "fake but accurate" to a new level.

On Salinger, I don't think I ever got what was so great about Catcher in the Rye. Though I suppose reading it in high school isn't a good test.

Happened to accidentally catch some NFL highlights today. Terrible refereeing. The end of the Bears-Broncos game reminded me of the US-USSR basketball final in the '72 Olympics. A terrible roughing the passer call, then a questionable decision to put 1 second back on the clock when everyone thought time had expired.

Yes, MM, that was part of what made it so awkward.

Biden is facing skepticism for a story he has told about a 1960s confrontation at a Wilmington My reaction was not to care much whether the story was true or not (though given Joe's track record, it's likely at least "embellished"). It was just to wonder what the hell the point was. The whole delivery was weird and awkward, like Hillary's "I'm no ways tahrd."

I wasn't light enough. A couple more weeks of keto should do it, Clarice.

TLG, I think the food debate is because it’s a Sunday. Slow news day. Though the subtext is that we are pushing back at our betters in the government who misled us for 50 years.

The difference between nutrition and climate is that with nutrition, everyone is different. What works for some may not work for others. Someone prone to diabetes might need something different from someone prone to heart disease or Krohn’s or who knows. So it’s perfectly possible to fimd significant benefits for two different regimes There’s only one climate. The common denominators to the ones that work are fasting, avoiding sugar and refined starches, staying away junk food with seed oils. So that’s what I do.

Clarice, on the GJ discussion from the last thread: I know the standard of proof is lower, and the presentation is one-sided. Nonetheless, why wouldn't a roomful of partisan Democrats practice (grand) jury nullification in a high-profile case like McCabe's?
