God bless Amer­ica, and how’s ev­ery­body?

Ge­orge­town Uni­ver­sity is­sued a state­ment dis­so­ci­at­ing the col­lege from a pro­fes­sor there who de­clared that all en­ti­tled white men should be cas­trated. It’s true that some of us may de­serve it. Did you know that Galileo in­vented the tele­scope be­cause his new neigh­bor was re­ally hot?

Mike Bloomberg re-reg­is­tered as a Demo­crat on Wed­nes­day in prepa­ra­tion for a 2020 pres­i­den­tial run. He’s a New Yorker and a multi­bil­lion­aire, and he has been hit by sev­eral sex­ual ha­rass­ment suits in the past. Democrats may have to ac­cept that the only way to win is to fight Trump with Trump.

Gov. Bruce Rauner was ser­e­naded by a mari­achi band as he signed a bill mak­ing Illi­nois a sanc­tu­ary state for un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants. I’d thought refugees were flee­ing vi­o­lence and seek­ing a safer life. Mov­ing to Chicago is like get­ting on a roller coaster with a “Closed for Re­pair” sign clearly posted.

Toy­ota re­called 800,000 Priuses be­cause they have been los­ing power. Last week, while I was jog­ging in Bev­erly Hills, I was hit by a Prius and had to go to UCLA hospi­tal to have it re­moved.
