She's not the first politician to have pretended to more education than was real. And I can recall instances of people who 'remembered' having an advanced degree when, in fact, they still owed the school a dissertation or something. But it's tough to claim this was a mere lapse of memory when she we...

Re: Sixth Mass Extinction Event

Evidently the extinction will kill off the humans early, and once the humans are gone there's a distinct possibility that the the earth will cool, the air and water will clear, and in a century or two things will be back to normal, absent the most dangerous and destructive species. https://www.rolli...

Re: Alternatives to MS Office

If you are just interested in a word processor (but I suppose not, because lots of Windows PC come with built-in stripped-down WORD), the student version of WordPerfect X8 is very satisfactory -- and, I am told, lawyers prefer WordPerfect to Word for writing pleadings.

Re: Trial: US v Manafort, Eastern District of Virginia

Judge Ellis keeps sniping at the prosecution - but that is not necessarily a good sign for Manafort. Every time the judge denies a prosecution motion/request or makes the prosecution dial back something it eliminates a possible ground for appeal for Manafort. If this continues, and if Manafort is co...

By my arithmetic, a difference of 1766 votes between R and D, which means that the presence of the Green Party did not actually defeat the Democrat but might have widened the margin enough to impede a challenge or recount. I would not be surprised if Republican money were subsidizing one or more of ...
