E.K., a Chicago reader, writes:
“I tried to take advantage of your ‘exciting announcement’ about QT at the new site. But all I get is a blank page.”
A number of readers have reported similar Internet trouble.
But rest assured.
QT has put teams of experts to work on this.
Depending on what you mean by “teams.”
And “experts.”
And QT can announce that the Internet trouble has been solved.
You can now reach the QT page at the excellent site, for sure, and support QT’s growth on the Internet for as little as $1 a month, by following this link:
And QT thanks you.

Tools of Trade

A National Rifle Association commentary this week charged that when the news media use the word “shooting” to describe shootings, it is a “trick” of “propaganda” to make people think of  the “tool” used in shootings.
Seven people were tooled to death and 23 wounded by tools in Chicago last weekend, as an example.

News Headline: “Rush Limbaugh compares Obama to Hitler, Stalin and Castro.”
Fair enough.
All part of the rough-and-tumble of politics.
News Headline: “Poll: Americans find Obama less competent than Bush.”
OK. Now we’re in the gutter.

Washington Redskins v Atlanta Falcons

News Headline: “NFL to ditch Roman numerals for Super Bowl 50.”
J.C., a Tucson, Ariz., reader, writes:
“Does this mean no more Roman numeral jokes from QT?”
No. The NFL will avoid Roman numerals IV I year only.
As long as we’re on the subject, there were CCXVII NFL concussions in the season and postseason leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
What is the NFL doing about it?
Needless to say, II little, II lVIII.


Think of it as bipartisanship

The Tea Party misreads current events.
President Obama is not a secret Muslim.
He’s a secret Republican.
