    I saw references to this on Facebook and it didn’t click. God rest her.

    re: the O’Reiller photo. Is there ANYONE in high government office who doesn’t look like some weird genetic accident…

    So when the Ferguson verdict comes out is Chris Hayes going to go there and cover it?

    Even when they look normal, they always seem to have a speech impediment of some sort.

    Not picking on folks with a speech impediment (especially since I’m basically Southern/country/redneck myself), but it’s amazing how many of the folks who want to Run Everything for Everybody seem to have one.

    That Gruber guy sounds like Barney Frank on a caffeine overdose.

    I was glad to read that the Hanson family is big enough to provide comfort to each other. I always hate those stories where it’s an only child.

    I developed a thesis that prosperity is counted up not in material wealth, but in the number of aunts one has.

    (Provided one lives in a society that cherishes women.)

    More aunts usually means the family is large, close, and supportive.

    They should have released the Ferguson no-bill today, temperatures plunged under 20 there tonight. Cold weather has a positive effect on grievance protests.

    I’m sure that if the poor souls who got roped into this grand jury could’ve ended it then, they would’ve.
