The New York Times clued people in to the fact Jr.'s book sales were rigged


When the NYT publishes it's weekly report of "best seller" book sales, there is a tiny daggar-like mark
next to Jr.'s title.
It’s known as the ‘deadly dagger.’
A rare penalty that is only called for flagrant fouls,such as when an author or someone close buys large quantities.
Such foul was noticeable in Jr.'s case because the huge number of sales soared within days of the book being out.

Never gave it a thought till now, but of course that would apply to Trump's books, espceially the ghostwritten Art of the Deal he is always bragging about.

Florida man is gonna be soooo jealous.


From NPR:

Three Indiana judges have been suspended for "behaving in an injudicious manner" after a failed attempt to visit a strip club led to a drunken brawl outside an Indianapolis White Castle that ended with two of the judges being shot.

Ohio House passes bill allowing student answers to be scientifically wrong

as long as the reasoning is because of their religious beliefs.

The Ohio House on Wednesday passed the "Student Religious Liberties Act."
Under the law, students can't be penalized if their work is scientifically wrong as long as the reasoning is because of their religious beliefs.

Instead, students are graded on substance and relevance.

Every Republican in the House supported the bill. It now moves to the Republican-controlled Senate.

Our raging Republican paper is NOT offering unconditional support for Sessions.



The weekly rag of our small town, Republican thru and thru. Which has supported Sessions forever.

Says Sessions' recusal of helping trump is a blot on his record, and now suggests Sessions be able to
" assure" that he is as reliable to the party, if he wants this area of the state to support him.

Democrat Dough Jones won Session's congress seat when Jeff went to trump land. Got the majority vote in our county, too.
Feels like a change is gonna come.

The difference between bribery and extortion:



"the most important difference is between a threat to do harm in extortion and an offer to do good in bribery."
