I'm sorry about your friend, Daivd.

I am confident that Garland will act when he has an open and shut case.

I like this response to GOP moaning about not seeing the warrant yet. [link]

Which would not prevent him from running for governor of Florida, however. But, then, they deserve him.

Oh, please let Trump and DeSantis devour one another in a fight for FL power!

Apparently someone shared the warrant with Breitbart? WTF. Twitter is claiming the statutes referenced on the warrant relate to obstruction of justice and espionage. The mind reels.

Bob's learned to live with tragedy, but he knows that this tragedy is one that won't ever leave him or get better.

Disqualified for federal office works for me.

The Breitbart version doesn't redact a lot of things that it should, like the agent names.

Thrive to spite them

Which puts the agents at risk from extremists.

It's interesting to see who of the GOP has been quiet and who is still trying to defend Trump or make this seem like it's no big deal/political persecution. Although I have seen the spin that since the warrant doesn't say the word "nuclear" that means it wasn't about nuclear weapons. It just says "Information, including communications in any form, regarding the retrieval, storage, or transmission of national defense information or classified material"

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

One of my former professors left Chautauqua 2 hours before Salmon Rushdie was stabbed and then shared the news that one of my other old professors (the one who introduced me to Brecht) passed away today.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

It was at Chautauqua? I was literally just trying to describe that to Javachik today. (Due to my current location being "Chautauqua-by-the-sea" [link] )

Yes- It is ALL OVER the local news here because it was somewhat “local”.

My professor’s family is the kind that used to “summer” and I think they still have a family summer house in Chautauqua. She also went to Mount Holyoke and babysat for John Irving. But there is really no more family money.

Also, I knew there WERE Chautauqua’s everywhere, but I didn’t know they still existed.

The BBC had a report from a freelance reporter who was attending the Rushdie talk. It was pretty horrifying, and they talked a lot about how little security Rushdie seemed to have, given the fact that the fatwa is apparently still in place. It's so sad.

How awful.
