Re: Fire!

Last night, my niece (near Clayton CA) texted me that she has six fires within ten miles of her, with the closest being the one in Clayton.

Re: Hijack this thread

So I am sitting in the prospective jurors room, waiting for orientation. Someone two rows in front of me really doesn't want to serve: he is wearing a T-shirt that says "Against Police Brutality." I would take a photo of it was allowed.

When we reset the poll, is it about time to add the So Called President?
Josh Marshall is proposing the use of the term / verb "to underbus" since it is getting so tedious referring to so and so being thrown under the bus.

Re: Gavin Seim

If Seim was actually talking about leaving because of a nearby fire, it was probably the only sensible thing he ever said. The two couples who died in two of our worst wildfires here in Colorado Springs (separate fires: Waldo Canyon fire and Blackforest Fire) were apparently waiting for a personal i...

Changed my vote to Jimmy, because I now think it's Rudy, and Rudy's not on the list.

FTR, I previously thought that there was zero chance of Rudy ending up with tread-marks on his sneakers.
Yes: Jimmy down the hall is my pick for the same reason.

Re: LEAVE Brexit Vote: Leave EU Thu 23 June - Market and US Election Impact

The only sensible thing to do is to have a second referendum. I hate referendums. I hate them too, and refuse to sign petitions here in Colorado, even when I might accept the idea in principle. However, I do vote in them, and was mildly astonished when 1) medical marijuana was legalized, 2) followe...

As of yesterday afternoon the Saddleridge Fire had grown to 7,542 acres and was 13 percent contained.
The last time we drove to my sister's place in Encino, I think we actually drove through the pass where the fire started because Google Maps directed us from our usual route.

I don't know how well 'distancing' is going to work. He is the President. He made the call. He said the words. Good luck with that. Meanwhile, he is continuing to reduce the number of close colleagues who still support him by trying to turn them into fall guys. This is not a good long-term strategy...

If he truly has dementia, it will show up when he starts debating the eventual Democratic candidate. If he doesn't debate, I would guess that it's because of the dementia, no matter what his handlers tell us.

It's one explanation for his income. After all the "artistic" shots that Seim has published of his wife, I ...
