News Headline: “Jekyll and Hyde, the musical.”
Can it be time for QT’s annual reminder that the first syllable of “Jekyll” rhymes with “cheek”?
And Happy Halloween!
News Headline: ‘Thanks to Trump, we can better understand how Hitler was possible.”
So there is a bright side to every story.
Another bright side:
As of November 9, we will finally have a reliable count of the number of easy marks in the American electorate.
“. . . disgusting. . . worst. . . crooked. . . rigged. . . phony. . . disgusting. . . losers. . . bad people. . . very evil people. . . disgusting. . . disaster. . . catastrophe. . . stupid. . . .”
Just call him the Happy Warrior.
And eight days to go.
Matt Schlapp, a Donald Trump surrogate, in response to the FBI announcement it would assess newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails, which may or may not be significant to its inquiries:

Add avalanches to the list of things that aren’t what they used to be.
And. . . .
Ten days to go.
News Headline: “Man dressed up as tree and stood in the middle of the road.”
As reasonable a response as any to the news of the day.

2016: I am not a dummy.
Eleven days to go.
News Headline: “Antarctic glacier thinning more quickly than thought.”
The headline writer has not paid attention to this election year.
Nothing is thinning faster than thought.
News Headline: “Dreamworld accident: Injuries ‘incompatible with life.’ ”
And when did “fatal” become “incompatible with life,” and when can we have “fatal” back?
And. . . .
News Headline: “Republicans endorse, unendorse and then re-endorse Donald Trump.”
News Headline: “First congressman to unendorse Donald Trump after sex assault comments re-endorses him.”
This is a matter of principle.
And the Republicans mean business.
A word of warning to Donald Trump:
If you admit to sex assault again, you can be quickly reunreunendorsed.
News Headline: “Facebook employees wanted to block Donald Trump for hate speech, but Mark Zuckerberg said no.”
When you see the phrase “hate speech” in a news report, replace it with “free speech.”
It gives a better sense of the story.
