It looks as though the Oregon situation is, as we say in the biz, developing. Discuss, if you like.
I know we generally start with a little banter before getting to the bloggage, but really, can this wait?
Detroit — A Detroit man watching a porn movie while driving his car got into an accident and died.
The man, who wasn’t wearing pants, was watching the movie on his cellphone, said police.
Clifford Ray Jones, 58, wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected through the sunroof.
A state police spokesman said it’s the strangest incident he ever encountered.
The accident happened at 3:30 a.m. As Alan sometimes says, “I suspect alcohol was involved.”
Now, the banter: Another week lurches toward its midpoint. Sorta scattered at this end, trying to get a couple things going, but nothing really catching hold yet. It’s like scratching a match and trying to get it to light. You know it’ll happen eventually, but it’s going to take a few scratches first. But I swam fairly well Tuesday. You flail in one part of your life, and you do better in another.
Or, as Clifford Ray Jones might have put it: Just keep both hands on the wheel.
I wish I had more words for you today. I wish I had more links. But I have this:
Trump’s fans tend to express little regard for political norms. They cheer at his most outlandish statements. O’Reilly asked Trump if he meant it when he said that he would “take out” the family members of terrorists. He didn’t believe that Trump would “put out hits on women and children” if he were elected. Trump replied, “I would do pretty severe stuff.” The Mesa crowd erupted in applause. “Yeah, baby!” a man near me yelled. I had never previously been to a political event at which people cheered for the murder of women and children.
But right now, I have a little more work to bang out. Later.
