The ‘Historic’ Impeachment

  FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION Readers will excuse the lack of blogging the past couple of days, but I got trapped in a research vortex that chewed up countless hours but has yet to yield an actual story. Also, Alabama lost to LSU, and recovering from that trauma involved a 7 Stages of Grief cycle, […]

Rally for the Wombat!

If our regular readers are wondering why there has been no FMJRA or Rule 5 Sunday this week, it’s because our beloved Wombat has been experiencing health problems that have also turned into a housing problem. It’s a situation a lot like what my brother went through, with the bureaucratic hassles creating a very difficult […]

Why Wasn’t Ibraheem Yazeed in Jail?

Aniah Blanchard (front center) with her family. “The warrant affidavit for [Ibraheem] Yazeed says blood discovered in the passenger’s side of [Aniah Blanchard’s] car was indicative of someone suffering a life threatening injury.” Unfortunately, it seems unlikely that this beautiful 19-year-old girl will be found alive, and the suspect will likely face murder charges: The […]

Police Arrest Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, in Disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, 19

Probably the suspect was resisting arrest, or something. Far be it from me to imagine that a fugitive apprehended in the kidnapping of a teenager might have been intentionally injured by the cops who caught him, because accidents happen. (Nudge, nudge.) All things considered, Ibraheem Yazeed should count himself lucky that one of the police […]

He had been an adjunct professor at New York University, where he was pursuing a Ph.D. in Sociology, but that was before he was caught vandalizing […]

Anti-Trump Book Is Spectacular Flop

  Book sales nowadays are often a reflection of celebrity: If you’ve got a hit TV show, a publisher will pay you big bucks in advance for a book and hire a ghostwriter to put it together for you, on the theory that your fans will all pay $24.95 for anything with your picture on […]

The 63-year-old educator supposedly began […]
