I agree with @1 - that kid did not ask for the trauma and guilt. I feel really bad for him.

Those elk will not be passing the "lake ice crossing gene" down to future generations.

Damn, what an awesome woman.

Alternately, is there any way for someone to agree to play one song, and then in the moment, play some sort of protest song and totally piss Trump off? What comes to mind is Dylan and "Masters of War" although those lyrics could possibly be read as an actual threat. Well, anyway, I'm just imagining. Besides, it's probably all pre-recorded these days.

@30 - I get what you are saying, but I still think there are things that Trump has to hide - either because they will make him look bad with his base; or because they are actual crimes.
Dec 10, 2016 Jude Fawley commented on Intelligence Agencies: Russia Was Trying To Help Trump Win Election.
Important questions:
- If the GOP has been hacked, what dirty secrets are the Russians holding in reserve about republicans?
- What are the odds that Russia also has dirt on Trump? (high, I think)
- Russia sways election for Trump; what does Trump owe in return?
- Why did Republican leadership (McConnell) deny that Russia was favoring Trump?
- (a bit more of a stretch, but worth asking:) Where does the Comey letter fit into this? Several Trump operatives and supporters predicted a surprise in October that would damage Clinton.

Anyone saying that this is not a big deal because the US had done it, I think, is in willful denial.
Dec 8, 2016 Jude Fawley commented on New York Times Columnist Thomas Friedman Spoke at Town Hall About What the Internet Is Doing to Jobs and Culture.
Why does the NYT keep it's Op-Editors around for so long? He's been doing those columns since, what, 2000? Even for writers who I really like, that's absurd. There should be term limits of 4 years or something.

I guess Slate already covered this:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2…

"Regardless of whether OGE is being willfully naive or slyly sarcastic, it’s striking that a federal agency tasked with steering the White House around ethical problems feels Twitter is the best medium to convey its important advice to the incoming president of the United States of America. Sadly, they may be out of other options."

Check out the U.S. Office of Government Ethics' Twitter feed for a really entertaining and mysterious display of... maybe a U.S. Office trolling the PEOTUS about his "divestment"? Or maybe just calling his bluff? Hard to tell what is happening but it is certainly evidence that we live in interesting times...
