Wednesday Reads: Riveting

Did y’all catch the Michael Cohen interview on Maddow last night?

That is one of the juicy bits. I mean , it didn’t make any grand revelations …but it did verify a lot.

In other news last night:

Meanwhile, they had to evacuate Medford Oregon:

This evening, 2020 corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum) bloom #1 opened and released its smelly stench. Check out these photos to see the 102” tall beauty in action. Learn more about these fascinating plants, why and how they smell, our conservation work with them, and see the live camera to watch its progress at www.USBG.gov/CorpseFlower

Did you know the corpse flower heats up? Amorphophallus titanum is one of many plants that create heat via thermogenesis. Sometimes a plant like skunk cabbage will use the heat to break through snow and ice and late winter. A. titanum uses the heat to volatilize the chemicals creating its stench, helping them move further away from plant to attract more pollinators (flies and carrion beetles). Yesterday, our 102-inch-tall inflorescence began opening around 2:00 pm. The central spadix reached a top temperature of 87.9 degrees F around midnight.

      Bob Woodward has known this for months and kept it secret for his book.

        It is very disheartening that Woodward apparently waited for his payday. There are many who are culpable here. We knew trump knew. Even Navarro was quoted early on that the virus was going to be devastating. What does it take? What would it have taken? The whole thing is so maddening. Play the tapes on network news, play them on Fox. Do something, you jerks! Maybe Woodward can be ostracized so this withholding of information ends. So that the likes of Michael Schmidt, Woodward, et al can lose their cachet.

    Trump keeps getting more vile, but so are the Republicans who stand by and enable him.

  4. bostonboomer says:

    Trump has to resign. Period. Today.

  5. NW Luna says:

    Queer, gender non-conforming. Goddesses, do they mean lesbian? gay? bisexual? Then say that, damnit! Gender is simply performing sexual stereotypes. It’s personality. A skirt on a man doesn’t make him trans nor does a gold lame purse or fingernail polish. Don’t follow trends — free yourself from gender stereotypes and expand male fashion by wearing your gold lame purse as a man, instead of pretending to be a woman.

    Abolish gender!
