email from Tim Canova with the tag '$5,400 for a bagel?

Dear me,

There’s a pretty good breakfast place near our headquarters where you can purchase a bagel for $1.35. Including schmear.

But on Tuesday, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is holding a fundraising event where her huge corporate donors — and we're not making this up — will be paying $5,400 to have a bagel with our insider opponent and superdelegate friends. No word yet on if those corporate donors are getting cream cheese with that check.

This is another incredible example of how broken our campaign finance laws have become. It would take a working American making the minimum wage in Florida 671 hours — more than 16 weeks of work — just to be able to afford that bagel and speak with their member of Congress.

I don’t know about you, but that must be some bagel…

Your contribution will help us defeat Wasserman Schultz and send a powerful message that we are sick and tired of Washington politicians selling access to corporate donors. We’ve had enough of wealthy elites buying our elections and rigging our economy.

You never know, Tim's race may be the reason for DWS's job being in jeopardy; the need for her to actually go out in the wilds and meet her voters

Is Hillary's word spelled;

Pray or prey.

I would argue for the latter but I guess some still haven't seen, or heard, the truth.

WTF did Hillary laugh at;

When Cooper announced a commercial break?

Did she have to go that badly and relief showed via a scary laugh?

The time was about 8:43 or so.

"The Internet believes Ted Cruz is the Zodiac killer — and so far he hasn’t denied it"

The conspiracy nuts are not confined to the right as the article shows.

"When you type the words, “is Ted Cruz the,” the first result search engine’s autofill feature suggests the Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate might be the infamous Zodiac killer.

"Suspicions appear to have first been raised in 2013, before Cruz announced his presidential candidacy, but the rumors have gained steam as the conservative senator has established himself as a top contender for the GOP nomination.

#CPAC Alert: Ted Cruz is speaking!! His speech is titled: 'This Is The Zodiac Speaking'

There are many Twitter remarks, mostly along this meme but a few seem to be sticking up for him;

" okay the whole "ted cruz is the zodiac killer" thing really pisses me off he was born after the killings stopped gnight [sic]

My take on it is that Ted's father, Rafeal, could be the mass murderer as he moved to TX in the 1970's.

Add to this the fact he's one bat shit crazy (fill in your noun), an Evangelical of the fire and brimstone type and I think the conspirators are one generation off.

Mozilla forums have so much more buzz words and technical stuff, much more than the above, but it mentions CSs many times and looking it up in Wiki gives the following;

In cryptography, a certificate authority or certification authority (CA) is an entity that issues digital certificates. A digital certificate certifies the ownership of a public key by the named subject of the certificate. This allows others (relying parties) to rely upon signatures or on assertions made by the private key that corresponds to the certified public key. In this model of trust relationships, a CA is a trusted third party—trusted both by the subject (owner) of the certificate and by the party relying upon the certificate. Many[quantify] public-key infrastructure (PKI) schemes feature CAs.


So since certificate authorities tell the firewall what sites to let through, or not, this web site has figured out a way to get past your computer's security.
