Re: Orange is the new President

These are uncharted waters, but if a president becomes the subject or target of a grand jury investigation and chooses not to testify while in office, especially if he ends up being an unindicted co-conspirator in a prosecution that results in convictions, I think there is a high probability that a...

Re: Orange is the new President

This is undoubtedly a big deal for the lawyer, but it means nothing for Trump. If he gets called to testify (he won't), then all he has to do is avoid perjury. His supporters don't give a tin shit if he banged a porn star. If anything it adds alpha-male appeal. Even if he does commit perjury, he's ...

Re: Suburban Slide

And yet on balance most poor people would be better off in the 'burbs in terms of cost of living, safety, etc. There's little surprise about this. Poor people take up the vacuum of decaying suburbs when the original suburbanites move either further out or back into the city, displacing whatever poor...

So--did anyone else watch the new Roseanne? I did. I thought the repartee was as clever as I recall, though I wasn't a regular watcher of the original show. I watched it more out of curiosity than interest and thought the transvestite grandson plot was contrived. Barr and Goodman still have great c...

Sanders is no more "owed" the nomination in 2020 than Eugene McCarthy was after 1968.

Regarding Brezhnev's funeral, much hated movie mogul Harry Cohn's funeral attracted most of Hollywood and when asked about the turn out Red Skelton apocryphally said "It just goes to show you. Give the people what they want, and they'll show up."
