Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

We return now to our original Wednesday/Hump Day links posts.  Come back tomorrow for Red Thursday, wherein you can find links to all my professional journalisming for the previous week, along with some hand-picked pieces by some of my colleagues, along with, well, whatever else I decide to put in there.

And so…

On To the Links!

Probably not.

National treasure Dr. Victor Davis Hanson weighs in. And again.

Feature, not bug?

“Holocaust” is probably something of an understatement.

Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m.

We can hope.

About damn time.

He may well be right.

If you’da asked me, I coulda told ya.

Trump gaining ground among minority, young voters.

We could use someone like him here.

That’s what I call a good start.

And then there were three.

John Stossel nails it.

Let’s face it, pretty much everything Gavin Newsome has done was bad for California.

Stealing is bad. Film at eleven.

We should expect nothing less.

This Week’s Idiots:

The Nation’s Chris Lehmann (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.

Vox’s Rachel Cohen is, at least, a well-intentioned idiot.

Massachusetts is obviously governed by idiots.

The Nation’s Sasha Abramsky is an idiot.

MSNBC’s Hayes Brown (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.  And he doubles down on stupid!

Robert Reich (Repeat Offender Alert) remains a sawed-off little runt, and an idiot.

The Nation’s Jeet Heer (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.

MSNBC’s Zeeshan Aleem is an idiot.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:

One of my favorite pieces of classical music is George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.  It’s a fun piece to listen to, lively, vivid, and fun; I listen to it once or twice a week.  And since I am an adherent to Robert Heinlein’s Principle of Least Action and think that the combination of talent and beauty is worth showcasing, to that end I give you the lovely, talented, and brilliant Khatia Buniatishvili performing Gershwin’s masterpiece.  Enjoy.
