• The Los Angeles Times warned that California may lack real estate available for cemeteries by the time Baby Boomers begin dying off. No problem here. When I die, I just ask that my ashes be scattered over the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, so that when Texas beats Oklahoma, it is over my dead body.
• Country music superstar Taylor Swift announced last weekend she’ll support the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee, Phil Bredesen. No one thinks this will last. The sad part is that just before the election Taylor will change her mind and release an album about their split.

It is amazing how quickly (planned in advance) a mob can be mobilized (social media) on call and with printed signs and shirts. Someone must’ve had a suitcase(s) full of cash (dark money) to pay off the so called protesters — bonus if he/she gets on television.
There must also have been many, many buses for all to arrive at the same time.
I must reply to the letter written by William E. Mowczko of Yuma.
Mr. Mowczko’s took issue with President Trump’s political rally in Mississippi. He said the president mocked Dr. Ford’s testimony laying out details, or lack thereof, about the night she believes someone sexually assaulted her. Yes, Trump’s speech delighted and inspired his political base, and yes, some laughed and cheered. I ask you, was what the president said false? I don’t think so. Were his remarks and his political base’s reaction cruel? Perhaps.
Mr. Mowczko pointed out that the President’s behavior reminds him of bullies. Dr. Ford admitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee that her greatest long-term anguish and pain after the alleged assault, was the laughter. That was about all that she could remember, at least all she remembers that could be corroborated by witnesses. Dr. Ford remembered she had one beer. She couldn’t remember where the party was, how she got there, how she got home but she darn sure remembers having one beer. Mr. Mowczko defines the president’s actions as bullying. He offers a clinical definition of bullying as “conduct that cannot be objectively justified by a reasonable code of conduct, and whose likely effect is to threaten, undermine, humiliate or harm another person or their reputation, self-esteem or self-confidence.”
Would you then label as bullying the abuse that Senator Feinstein inflicted upon Dr. Ford by not protecting her anonymity? It was Feinstein who received and sat on Dr. Ford’s letter and then someone leaked it to the media. Also, what about quoting once again “conduct that cannot be objectively justified by a reasonable code of conduct, and whose likely effect is to threaten, undermine, humiliate or harm another person or their reputation, self-esteem or selfconfidence”. Would you agree that Judge Brett Kavanaugh was bullied as well?
Here is the message that must be sent, in America, everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
