With best cordial wishes


News Headline: “Two killed, 26 injured in Chicago weekend shootings.”
Happy Father’s Day from the National Rifle Association!

What could possibly go wrong?


News Headline: “Iraq teeters toward civil war.”
News Headline: “Iraq crisis: Republicans warn of ISIS threat, call for U.S. action.”
Sending in advisers should do it.
As long we see regular progress reports from Saigon.

Age of the ignorantosaurus


Jeff Miller

News Headline: “Florida Congressman Jeff Miller: If humans cause climate change, what made dinosaurs extinct?”
Note to those who view statements from the Tea Party GOP with disbelief:
Next will come anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

QT Early Warning System

Beware the ides of National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month.

Where the hate is as high as an elephant’s eye

Scott Esk


News Headline: “Oklahoma GOP candidate: Stoning gays the ‘right’ thing to do.”
Scott Esk quotes Leviticus 20:13 to make his point.
He does not quote 1 John 4:20:
“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar.”
Still looking for a passage on the stoning of self-righteous dimwits.

QT Summer Travel Advisory

Florida Hurricane

News Headline: “Giant 3-foot rats invade Florida Keys.”
News Headline: “Giant snails take over South Florida.”
Add more than 1.2 million Floridians with concealed-carry permits, and you have a vacationer’s paradise.

And fries with that

Competitive Eating

News Headline: “Up to 200,000 Somali children could die from malnutrition.”
News Headline: “A world-ranked competitive eater talks training, hot dogs and vomit.”
The human race?
Still needs work.

Economic indicators

Corporate Boardroom

News Headline: “Italy to include prostitution, illegal drugs in GDP.”
Seems only fair when we’re allowed to include Halliburton.
Not to mention Bank of America.

Earth_RotationThe Sub-Bureau for Rapid Service and Predictions of Earth Orientation of the International Earth Rotation Service has announced that there will be no leap second added to civil time at midnight June 30.
Plan accordingly.

Today’s good news. . . well, in a certain context

Eric Canto

News Headline: “GOP leader Eric Cantor falls to Tea Party challenger.”
Put aside the morning’s political pronouncements–the issues, the personalities, the trends.
Just know that a top incumbent corporate candidate outspent his opponent 25 to 1 and still managed to lose.
So it can be done!
Not every election in this country can be bought!
Just most of them.
