(on coffee break)

Nashville bomber's girlfriend warned authorities he was building a bomb in his RV

Local authorities investigated, passed to FBI, which found nothing in its files and did nothing.

Obviously it was too busy trying to make up evidence against Trump to actually look into a potential bomber

Too busy sending 16 agents to investigate a garage door pull.

Damn MTA fare machine ate my reduced-fare Metrocard.  I'd just gotten it back a week ago from the last time the machines ate it (21-day wait), and now I have to wait another 21 days for the replacement.  They don't let the "token booth clerks" handle money any more.

Ain't progress and technology grand?

MTA: prove our machine ate your card!

To err is human, to really foul things up takes a computer.

This is the third time their machines ate my card.  They've replaced it the first two times---with the money I was trying to put on it.  We'll see if my luck 21 bizniz days.

We all know it doesn't take 21 days. 21 days is completely arbitrary.

It should take a phone call, a computer entry and the card is in the mail end of day.

On the one hand, you're right.  On the other hand, you've never seen the glacial pace at which our MTA workers function.

Union shop.

The lowest common denominator determines the pace.

We have Representatives who will Challenge States Electoral votes.

[Sen.] Hawley to challenge Electoral College results in Senate

Remember that The House votes on these challenges are by State Delegation, not The House as a whole. Republicans control 26 of the Delegations.

Now that there have been some court rulings in favor of religious observance/assembly, it is time for the gyms and restaurants and bars to start branding themselves as houses of worship to be able to re-open.  The gyms could become "The Church of Christ Muscular," and feature cross-training; the restaurants could claim protection under the miracle of the loaves and fishes; the bars could cite to the wedding at Cana where water was changed into wine.

I understand that as a supposedly-devout Catholic, Joe Biden is planning to give up the presidency for Fraudu-Lent.

And just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any worse, we've lost Mary Ann.
