Greetings and facilitations

shootings

Why is everybody out to get the greatest president-elect in history?

donald-trump
Donald Trump tweeting over the weekend:
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
QT is trying to remember.
What is that term for a person “characterized by systematized delusions of persecution or grandeur usually without hallucinations”?
No matter.
It’s just good that he supports a recount.

And one more thing. . . .

Making a list, checking it twice

News Headline: “Macy’s to open even earlier on Thanksgiving Day.”
Other stores that will be order workers to work on Thanksgiving include Best Buy, J. C. Penney, Kmart, Kohl’s, Sears, Toys R Us, Target and Wal-Mart.

candy-corn
News Item: “. . . More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That’s nearly 9 billion pieces–enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end. . . .”
Or think of the weight of 66,200 baby grand pianos, which, if laid end to end, would circle the moon 88 times.

Tomorrow belongs to. . . .

sieg-hail
Newx Headline: “Alt-right exults in Donald Trump’s election with a salute: ‘Heil victory.’ ”
News Headline: “Alt-right leader: ‘Hail Trump! Hail Victory! Hail our people.’ ”
Some in the alt-right say “Heil.”

As it slowly dawns on the news media that calling it the alt-right is like calling Ebola the
alt-flu.
