Best line in a story this past week:
Children can go to California to have their bodies irrevocably altered by surgery and be pumped full of drugs that could cause health issues in the immediate and distant future that could ruin their lives. Crime is rampant and the streets are full of homeless encampments, needles, and human waste. The term “Golden State” could soon refer to the fact that everyone there has contracted hepatitis. BUT the kids will be safe because they can’t get a bag of Skittles.

RIP, Ray Stevenson. I’ll always remember him as Titus Pullo in HBO’s amazing series Rome.
Can California be turned red again? Color me skeptical, but still…
The Supreme Court makes a 9-0 ruling (Sackett v. EPA) and Democrats immediately start lying about it. Hey, you jackasses, look up the difference between “concurring” and “dissent.”
This will be interesting to watch. Full disclosure: I’m on Team DeSantis, but if Trump gets the nomination, I’ll vote for him. The alternative is unthinkable.
I remember when sitzpinkler was an insult. Hell, I live out in the woods. I pee outside more than in the house. Kind of hard for a dude to sit for that.
My friend Brandon Morse has an excellent piece on Memorial Day. Yes, that’s me in the comments.
The Nation’s D.D. Guttenplan & John Nichols (Repeat Offender Alert) are both idiots. Biden doesn’t need to remake his candidacy – he needs to resign, for the good of the republic.
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Back in the day – and still today, in fact – one of the most powerful male singers was the Welsh master Tom Jones. He projected his voice like few today can, and he also combined style and class with talent.
One of his best-known tunes is actually a cover of Paul Anka’s 1970 tune She’s a Lady, but Jones, in 1971, recorded what would be far and away the most popular take on this song. Here, then, is that tune. Oh, and as a bonus, take a look at Tom Jones on the Ed Sullivan show in 1968, with his signature song It’s Not Unusual. Enjoy!
