    I’m with you, Rick Astley is the one. Good but sad roundup. I was surprised to feel bad for the stranded nebraskans, still have some empathy I guess.

    Great roundup JJ. They are saying you will get quite the punch from Zeta, up in the higher elevations of North Georgia. At least it should go by quickly.

    Dak – stay safe! Hope the power holds.

      Maybe he thinks his belief in a deity will protect him from viruses. He’s also shown woman-hating behavior before this — I remember that clip of him jerking his arm away instantly after a woman reached out to touch his arm. He looked as if he feared infection then.

  6. NW Luna says:

    The video in Christine Pelosi’s tweet shows interesting body language of Kennedy & Trump. Kennedy was obviously taken aback — shocked? Furious? Afraid?

    Glad to see the NYT continues to investigate Trump’s taxes.

    @kous’s tweet — too bad the author doesn’t know what “literally” means.
