QT loud guy at the end of the bar update


News Headline: “Trump drops more than 200 spots on Forbes billionaire list.”
Failing Trump falls to $3.5 billion.
Claims “in excess” of $10 billion.
Dishonest. Sad.

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language


News Item: “. . . were never in eminent danger. . . .”
News Item: “. . . that no eminent danger existed. . . .”
There are times when only the most distinguished of dangers will do.
And is it time for QT’s quinquennial reminder that it isn’t “sacreligious,” but “sacrilegious”?
Evidently.

QT Planetary Defense Coordination Office

Asteroid 2017 FS was discovered Sunday as it passed between Earth and the moon.
In other news, President Trump’s new budget would cut funding for NASA’s Asteroid Redirect Mission.
The mission was designed, in part, to demonstrate planetary defense techniques to deflect dangerous asteroids and protect Earth if needed in the future.”
But the existence of asteroids is fake science.
It’s only one of those theories.
The president heard it somewhere.

From Poor QT’s Almanack


On this day in history 101 years ago, The Foundation of the General Theory of Relativity was published, followed 87 years to the day by  the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and it is left to the reader to decide which one wasn’t come up with by an Einstein.

Narcissistic sociopathy in the news


News Headline: “Trump supporters call for Hawaii boycott.”
As other states wonder how to get in on this, too.

Frontiers of science


News Headline: “Trump: ‘My job is to represent the United States of America.’ “
News Headline: “Humpback whales are organizing in huge numbers, and no one knows why.”
Maybe they’re coming to our rescue.

GovernMania MMXVII in the news


News Headline:
“Paul Ryan says health plan’s goal is ‘universal access.’ ”
News Headline: “Petition to remove health-care subsidies from members of Congress has 500,000 signatures.”
Members of Congress shouldn’t mind.
They’ll still have access.

This just in. . . .


News Headline: “Naked man on all fours seen near Tottenham Court Road station.”
As reasonable a response as any to the news of the day.

And maybe a golf course where Downton Abbey was


News Headline: “Trump budget has Public Broadcasting in a fight for its life.”
Plans now call for the big wall to extend along Sesame Street into Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.
And the nation’s children will pay for it..
