Similar to my reflections on Trump and Loki some weeks back is David Brooks' reflection The Lord of Misrule.

While i admire Brooks resolution, it's not clear it follows.

Also, this documentation of Trump's network - thank you :

I have apparently misfiled Buzzfeed in my mind as silly listicles, but seeing this article about Dylan Roof it's clear i need to file it as also a good resource.

I have a senator on the Judiciary Committee, which is getting ready to review Sen Jeff Sessons for atty general. https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/

Maybe you do: https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/about/members (Both TX and MN senators are on this committee).

Here's some information about Sen Sessions, with the first article the source for my complaint that "I am concerned about Senator Sessions' identification of cases in which he had a key role including cases he only handled in a pro forma way. Willingness to make such misleading representations seems disqualifying enough."
