Portland is now under a full Winter Storm Warning, and it has been snowing all night and all day. Subfreezing temperatures are forecast until Sunday. As I feared it might, the weather has screwed up my day. On Wednesdays I take a morning nap, to be sure to be up when Store to Door arrives with my groceries. I was about to get up when the call came from Store to Door. All grocery deliveries are cancelled. Then Wendy called. Her school is closed for a snow day, and she was at the store. She’s picking up a few staples for me and wants to come in the next hour or so, instead of this evening. Dang! If I were ten years younger and hadn’t forgotten how, I’d marry her. So I’m not sure when this will be published or uploaded to Care2.

You can read the document here. I believe it, but I do so on the basis of instinct, not verifiable evidence. I’m waiting for that, and if proven, Trumps minority election must be invalidated. RESIST!!
From Washington Post: The widow of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. urged Congress to block the 1986 nomination of Jeff Sessions for federal judge, saying that allowing him to join the federal bench would “irreparably damage the work of my husband,” according to the letter written by King that was previously publicly unavailable and obtained on Tuesday by The Post.
Senator Strom Thurmond (R-KKK) protected Beauregard in 1986 by burying the letter and not including it in the record. Please click through and read it in its entirety. Then call your Senator to demand that it be read into the record for this hearing. RESIST!!
