Going for the Record is astute.

We owe our British and Scottish friends thanks for demonstrating more bravely and thoroughly than we have.

Re: “Marijuana Commission's new Catch 22. No court appeal possible for losers.

Sue, let's just make it up as we go along. That's normal. Right?

Re: “'Little Rock' draws strong review in New York Times

Wonderful. Another reminder that literature and drama can educate sometimes when other methods fall short.

Re: “The attack on journalists: It's still about the guns

I second the long-experienced Plainjim's remarks and the post by Max Brantley, a journalist whom I deeply respect.

The journalists who died yesterday in Maryland were murdered by a person angry that the truth was reported. How can it not be connected that we have a current president who constantly calls objective reporting "fake news" and journalists "the enemy of the people." Many times. Repeatedly. As an applause line.

He is urging the public to disbelieve news that reveals his administration's mistakes and deliberately heinous actions, his own shady business dealings, his loss in the popular vote, his audaciously, frequently PROVEN, lies and more.

A drumbeat telling the American people to hate and disbelieve the press is a scheme to take away their liberty. A presidential candidate who applauds, grandstands and yells "GET 'EM OUT OF HERE" while security threatens and manhandles journalists AND protestors is directly objecting to free speech and endorsing mob violence. A president who calls the free press the "enemy of the people" is a dangerous enemy of YOUR liberty and rights.

One does not get to determine the truth by using the power of their ELECTED office or subvert the truth with a gun, either. SPARE ME your "concern ... but" remarks such as those left by Rex. SPARE ME the "what-about-isms."

Re: “Mass shooting at Annapolis, Md., newspaper

It may turn out to be personal, but two times this week the president pointed to the press at his "rallies" and called us the "enemy of the people."

Re: “Grim and grimmer: The open line

Only Mueller can save us from this nominee that can ruin democracy for the next 40 years - or forever.
