Thursday update. Hopefully with better grammar than last night


If you read the HORROR REPORT late last night, you may have caught the story last night about a bowl breaking in my house. My wife tells me I should really not write that late--maybe she's fraught with bad grammar and poorly constructed sentences. I am no Pulitzer Prize winning writer, mind you, but I am a little embarrassed when I publish such bad content. My apologies. That however does not discount the fact that, for no reason, three people heard a spoon clang against a bowl and all three of us watched the bowl break. I still have no ability to sensibly understand why or scientifically say how..

And on to the news..

The new word of the year: BARRYCADES.. those monuments of government shutdowns called barricades, changed a bit to fit the President's order to close certain places. In the case of Mount Vernon, an order was given to shut it down. Funny enough, it's PRIVATELY OWNED!

Federal workers nervously anxious over shutdown.. In many states, even if federal workers want to file for unemployment, to certify that they continue UC benefits, they will need to prove they are searching for another job--and if they are offered another job and don't take it, they quite possibly will lose benefits..

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…
