Commend this calm synopsis of border issue to my dwindling rank of Trump-adjacent friends, none of whom any longer follow me on Twitter I suspect.

German phrase, Gesicht, das du schlagen willst, which roughly translates as "a face in need of a fist."

glad to hear it and needless to say, all those long-ago Scot and Scot-Irish emigrants had an outsized influence on our culture, particularly in South and Southern Appalachia.

Hot-stove Cameron a good one, but the winner? Must be worse! Also now see that Krugman has weighed in with compelling op-ed that Pruitt is pathetically small-time compared to big-$ swindlers of old.

Historians out there, please advise. Washington has always had grifters, where does Pruitt belong in rankings of all-time swamp creatures?

Mad scientist son made me spit in 23andme tube, proving what I knew from pics of squinting, long bearded ancestors: I'm 99.8% Ashkenazi. Awaiting clarification on other .2 percent. Hoping for "Holy Ghost" or "Extra-Terrrestrial."

Olustee under-recognized bloodfest, very high casualty rate. Reenactment used to be major gathering for African American reenactors, don't know if that's still so.

Would the Clintons please just go away? Or, as I'm told Gen Xers like to say, Get off the stage!

Rob, you're right the term is thrown around too loosely. Milbank expresses it much more clearly than I did: Trump constantly uses race/religion/ethnicity as wedge issue, and the examples he cites are only one week's worth.

sorry, have tried hard to listen and be sympathetic to trump supporters. his appeal to racism inescapable, this piece but one of many examples.

Tks, and no, didn't foresee, just recorded what I saw then. But I'm almost done writing another Southern journey, so perhaps a book-end. And FYY, in between wrote A Voyage and Strange, also lots on South though in rather different vein.

After watching last night's Billions, in which Chuck Rhoades outdoes himself as evil legal genius, I'm surprised Trump hasn't latched on to Paul Giamatti as obvious replacement for Sessions as A-G.

Unsung virtue of driverless cars: they should spell an end to stupid car chases in movies.

Tks for kind words, and Voyage in similar antic/serious vein to Confederates and Blue Latitudes. Albeit, earlier era and w/o company of my mate Roger (tragically, since deceased) or the inimitable Robert Lee Hodge. But other characters abound.
