Tiresome "I cherish/champion/mentor women" apologias from sexual predators call to mind line about liberal icon and private monster, Justice William O. Douglas. He loved humanity and hated people.

Gotta love this fake Washpost reporter calling self Bernie Bernstein. I'm going to start calling myself Chrissy Christian or Roll Tide, from the Alabama Times.

Despite Dem win in VA, rural counties in SW of state went 75-80% GOP, as did in 2016. Appalachia still a Trumpian citadel.

Tune in to Liberal Redneck if you haven't already, reclaiming the R-word with humor and true populism.

Tks, and chapter 5 opens at Redbone's Saloon on TN/KY line, a place where redneck and liberal don't belong in same sentence.

Finally, some good hurricane news. WPost: 'the World Meteorological Organization will retire the names Harvey and Irma after this season.'

Good question. As I recall, Cold Mt successfully fudges that, about horror of war rather than its politics, but he does serve with Rebs.

You at Chickamauga for 153rd? Reenacting blue or gray? Reenacting Bierce's story about it? Super hardcore!

Freddie Morrow still in super-max. Spoke to prosecutor in case the other day and even he thinks rebel flag and monuments should come down.

Tks, Yemen most fascinating of 55 countries I've visited and tragic to see ruin there now, partly due to U.S. support of Saudis
