QT all’s well that ends wells update

Oil Spill
News Headline: “BP to pay $18.7 billion to settle Gulf Coast oil spill claims.”
Just a cost of doing business.
The business being to poison us.

If only. . . .

McGovern Crowd
News Headline: “Bernie Sanders draws biggest crowd of any 2016 candidate yet.”
Kids, go get grandpa and ask him what it was like when George McGovern was drawing such huge crowds in 1972.

QT 2016 vote count countdown update

Donald Tump
News Headline:  “NBC cuts ties with Donald Trump.”
News Headline:  “Macy’s cuts ties with Donald Trump.”
News Headline: “New York City reviewing business relationships with Trump.”
News Headline:  “Golf organizations distance themselves from Trump.”
News Headline: “Astronomers find star speeding out of galaxy.”
Probably trying to get  away from Trump

QT Yellowstone Caldera (the eruptions of which can be violent enough to send a layer of ash six feet deep as far away as Chicago and which erupts every 600,000 or so years and last erupted 640,000 years ago) update

Yellowstone Magma
Yellowstone earthquake counts for the past five months, as of July 1, have gone from 73 to 56 to 62 to 75 to 82.
Scientists said this seismic activity is expected to remain at “low background levels.”
Unless there is an abrupt change, for some reason.

Peoplenado!

Shark
News Headline: “Yes, the number of shark attacks is above average.”
News Headline:
“Humans kill nearly 100 million sharks a year, say conservationists.”
Ask any shark.
We humans are a ferocious species.

But what if. . . .

Rand Paul
News Headline: “Rand Paul to raise money with marijuana industry in Denver.”
A good tactical move.
If more of us voters were blazed, we might begin to understand him.

From the QT police blotter

Santander Bank
A man in a wheelchair robbed a New York City bank and managed a getaway down the sidewalk, a police spokesman announced very quietly.

The flag and the fireworks

American Flag
News Headline: “American flag-burning event set for Brooklyn ahead of 4th of July holiday.”
And it will be a fitting sight to see.
One of the many reasons our flag is worth saluting:
It stands for the right to burn it.
