A note to readers:
Take care not to confuse Asteroid 2016 CM194, which was discovered Saturday as it passed closer than the orbits of some manmade satellites, with Asteroid 2016 DB, which was discovered Wednesday, two days after it passed closer than the orbits of some man-made satellites.
Always reassuring to have the incoming asteroids straight.
News Headline: “How Donald Trump is turning on his fellow Republicans.”
Do not let yourself visualize Donald Trump trying to turn a fellow Republican on.
News Headline: “Woman found topless and singing in a tree.”
As reasonable a response as any to the news of the day.
News Headline: “Hillary Clinton barks like a dog.”
And as reasonable a response as any to the politics of the day.
A one-word tweet by Jeb Bush above a photo of a semiautomatic handgun inscribed
with his name:
Shocked neighbors told police he was a quiet candidate who kept to himself. . . .
News Headline: “Hopkins scientists develop mini-brains in promising research.”
The scientists knew they had succeeded when a specimen signaled it wanted to
make America great again.
News Headline: “ ‘This is a lame-duck president’: Ted Cruz vows to stop Obama.”
Dave Carr, an Owen Sound, Ontario, reader, writes:
“Do I have it right that President Obama is not actually a ‘lame duck’ until after election day?”
Ted Cruz should know better.
Or is this just another quack in his facade?
And is it time for QT’s triennial reminder that “frequent,” when used as a verb, should have its accent on the second syllable?

One out of three people you see on the street has no idea who Antonin Scalia was.
There have been no reports of a man biting a dog.
But a police officer bit a dog walker in Oviedo, Spain.
A number of readers–hey, zero is a number–have asked QT why it announced a day off
QT and sons Zach (left) and Bryant were busy taking a few hours to hang out with the excellent Svengoolie in his excellent dungeon.
“Svengoolie” remains QT’s second favorite TV horror-comedy show after “Meet the Press.”
Executive producer Jim Roche provides a photographic record.
A number of chickens were thrown–son Zach accidentally beaning Svengoolie with one.
Svengoolie took it well.
And now back to work. . . .
