Re: “Attorney general to defer to prosecutors on Clinton e-mail case

Okay, I'll concede the "shadow" but it seems to me it would also have been "news" (at least to some) had the two carefully avoided each other. So the reporter will be eased out for reporting that the two met, baker? You're seeing intrigue no matter which direction you look. You do realize that, don't you?

Re: “Charged dropped against grandmother who used switch on 12-year-old

As I understand, when Ms. Toussaint was arrested, her granddaughter was placed in the custody of DHS. I wonder if she has regained custody. Anyone know?

Re: “Government issues warning to stop driving some Acuras and Hondas

Knee jerk reaction would be running out and selling the car, Steven. Get the damned airbag replaced. Period. Of course, the problem with that "solution" is that it won't even begin to be available for months. The real problem is that a lot of folks who are driving these vehicles can't afford alternate transportation. They will simply keep driving and hope the odds are in their favor.

Re: “Police report triple shooting in 3200 block of Zion Street

Just how thick do you judge our "veneer of civilization" to be, Steven? We may not be on the skids like Venezuela, but can we be sure what the future holds? How well prepared were many, if not most, of our parents and grandparents when the depression hit?
Back to the proliferation of guns in our society, do you really think our "veneer of civilization" is as thick as it was 30, 40, 50 years ago? When I was a kid, my father had a .22 for varmints and a shotgun for, I suppose, anything bigger that might be a serious threat. He never carried them to town and as far as I remember never used the shotgun except to show me how to avoid having a black and blue shoulder for a week.
But truth be told, since we lived on the backside of nowhere he was always "armed" when he answered the door -- with a hickory club the size of a baseball bat within arm's reach. He never had to grab it and it was long ago consigned to the barn where I think it's still stashed.

Re: “Deadspin disses Donald Trump GOP convention lineup

Ewww. Too much information from johnnybob.
I had to look back over the comments to see what might have attracted him. Usually this type of post finds its way onto a much older thread.
I think I've found the culprit. It's YOU, plainjim, with your use of a certain word in the last sentence of your 7:54 p.m. Wednesday post. Shame on you. (I would ask you to desist from using THAT WORD, but it is perfectly appropriate in that context.)
Oh, well, I suppose we, ahem, ladies will survive, much as I survived hearing a man use a coarse phrase in my presence, then directly addressing an apology to me. (Funny thing about my reaction ... the apology seemed more offensive.)

Time to worry about both, Steven.

Re: “Friday's LGBT kiss-in moved from Rapert's office to state Capitol

Surely he wouldn't pretend to move to avoid a short demonstration. (Short I think, because it's gonna be hot. Yeah, heatwise I'm probably wimpier than most.)
But if that's the case, maybe regularly scheduled demonstrations at his office will be in order. No, make that irregularly scheduled. No need to give him a good reason, for instance, to take Friday afternoons off.
