TucKKKer Carlson should stick to racism, it's what he knows best
Two things come to mind when I think about Tucker Carlson; racism and that blank look on his face.  Carlson’s crowning achievement is a repertoire completely devoid of integrity or information. Trevor Noah put together a little mashup that highlights Carlson’s racism, Jeopardy style.  Click HERE to view that.  And thank you, Alex. I caught... Read more »

Pants on fire:  Forest raking and other myths
The featured image above shows major wildfire activity in 12 western states.  The ones we hear the most about are California, Oregon and Washington, mostly because of those fires’ proximity to heavily populated areas.

Kenny Weismuller's head is stuck somewhere, but at least he won't get sunburned
Kenny Weismuller (fake name) was one of two blasts from the past I encountered during a recent condolence call (shiva).
