Road Show

Fearless Maria and I are in St. Louis today, looking at colleges. I will be on the road all week, so I imagine blogging will be pretty light this week.

I'm mostly bored with the news anyway; the Dems seem more interested in doing half-assed HUAC imitations than anything useful. Hard to write about that anyway.

The only local story that caught my attention was the announcement that Tina Flint Smith is not running for governor in 2018. I hope the DFL makes the clear choice and nominates Alondra Cano instead.

House Un-American Activities Committee. Famous (or infamous) for trying to sniff out Commies back in the day.

The 80s called. I thought they were going to say they wanted their Democrats back, but instead the 80s said, "Keep 'em."

The eighties? I don't think Democrats have been this worked up about Russia since the sixties! Remember Jimmuh Cahtuh saying that he felt that the threat of Communism was overblown? A hundred million people who died before their time in the gulags and such were unavailable for comment, of course.
