QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

News Headline: “Report: Everybody in the White House considers Donald Trump an idiot.”
Not as simple as that.
Trump associates  have reportedly confided, also, that they consider him a “moron,”  an “imbecile,” a “dope” and a “fool.”
And “dumb as s—.”
And “unhinged.”
And a “f—ing liar.”
So think of him as multifaceted.

From the QT police blotter

+ Rich Rzadski, a Chicago reader, regarding a news story about a man arrested with 300 pounds of stolen lemons and QT’s noting that police were seeking persimmons of interest, writes:
“The police know how to deal with lemon thieves. Put the squeeze on ’em.”
+ Jim Kubek, a Madison, Wis., reader, writes:
“Was the man identfied in a limeup?”
+ Gene Christianson, an Overland Park, Kan., reader, writes:
“This was unsual. Fruit thieves usually work in pears.”
Stop it.
Stop it now.

Putting on airs

News Item: “. . . The United states is the only developed nation that  does not guarantee health care for its citizens. . . .”
News Item: “. . .  the only developed nation where workers are not guaranteed paid vacation or holidays. . . .”
News Item: “. . .  the only developed nation that suffers so much daily gun violence. . . .”
Who says we’re a developed nation?

This just in. . . .


News Headline:
“Orrin Hatch goes off after protestor disrupts Kavanaugh hearing: “We ought to have this loudmouth removed.”
Or maybe he was talking about impeachment.

Cover-ups in the news


News Headline:
“Trump withholds 100,000 pages on Brett Kavanaugh’s record, citing executive privilege.”
News Headline: “Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination not ‘normal,’ says Senate Democrat.”
What is it about some people who think that anyone who hides something has something to hide?

Happy. . . .


News Headline: “Rethinking the meaning of Labor Day.”
Wages low, benefits low, work still moving to child sweatshops overseas. . . .
We’ve been rethinking it, all right.
But Happy Labor Day!
