God bless Amer­ica, and how’s ev­ery­body?

Demo­cratic law­mak­ers said Trump threw a tantrum in the White House peace par­ley Tues­day while GOP law­mak­ers said Nancy Pelosi re­fused to ne­go­ti­ate. When there are two con­flict­ing ver­sions of a story, the wise course is to be­lieve the one in which peo­ple ap­pear at their worst.

The White House of­fered to hud­dle with both par­ties to try to re­open the gov­ern­ment. Both sides se­cretly agree that pol­i­tics is pre­vent­ing any com­pro­mises. Pol­i­tics is like car­bon monox­ide: You can’t see or smell it, but the mo­ment it en­ters a room it kills ev­ery­thing.

The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives ad­journed for a long week­end Thurs­day with polls show­ing the na­tion split wide open along party lines. Barack Obama said he came to Wash­ing­ton, D.C., be­liev­ing that more things unite us than di­vide us. Well, we showed him.

Cal­tech astronomers said the Milky Way will col­lide with an­other uni­verse in two bil­lion years, in an ex­plo­sion that will send our galaxy into space. They said un­less some­thing is done to pro­tect the Milky Way, the col­li­sion is in­evitable. Demo­cratic lead­ers said nice try, but no wall.
