from Bruce

As Told to Lucy Clark: "Mem Fox on being detained by US immigration: 'In that moment I loathed America'" (The Guardian)
The celebrated Australian children's author tells how on her 117th visit to the US she was suddenly at the mercy of Donald Trump's visa regime.


Tom Danehy: The Lenten season is upon us, and Tom decides to get a few things off his chest just in case in decided to give up Trump hating for 46 days (Tucson Weekly)
I'll leave you with one of his quotes from the now-infamous shoot-from-the-hip press conference. The President of the United Sates said this: "You know what uranium is, right? It's this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things." Let us pray.


MICHAEL GRUNWALD: Salesman-in-Chief (Politico)
President Donald Trump basically told Americans [] that he's going to make sure we can have our cake and eat it, too-and by the way it will be a spectacular cake, it won't cost much, and it's going to help us lose a lot of weight.


Mark Morford: "Trump ruins everything: The problem of nothing else mattering" (SF Gate)
It's the dread you feel when you pick up your phone after an hour or two of mellow inactivity, only to be confronted, yet again, with a fresh hell of breaking news: some billionaire conspiracy crony jammed into a high-ranking cabinet position, some newly obvious Trump link to the Russian mafia, some embarrassing presidential midnight tweet, some fresh cruelty to women, or immigrants, or blacks, the ACA, some fresh evidence that the GOP is gloating its way to collective treason.


Alice Ollstein: Trump's Proposal To Gut The State Department Runs Into GOP Buzzsaw (TPM)
The chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), told TPM on Wednesday that he agrees. "Every general that you talk with tells you that to the extent we're successful about diplomacy, we have less likelihood that our men and women in uniform are threatened by war," he said. "So I understand the importance of it."


Alexandra Spring: "Rachel Griffiths: 'I think I have been a very poor and bad feminist'" (The Guardian)
The outspoken Australian actor joins an all-star cast for When We Rise, a TV miniseries exploring the gay rights movement in the US.


Suzanne Moore: Public eating is fraught. If hotdogs at the cinema are OK, why not a bacon bap at a play? (The Guardian)
A theatre has asked its audiences not to eat during performances - but many now consider 'leisure' to be eating and drinking at every moment.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday


What is the name of this childhood favorite?


       Silly Putty                                                      Source


Silly Putty is a toy based on silicone polymers that have unusual physical properties. It bounces, but it breaks when given a sharp blow, and it can also flow like a liquid. It contains a viscoelastic liquid silicone, a type of non-Newtonian fluid, which makes it act as a viscous liquid over a long time period but as an elastic solid over a short time period. It was originally created during research into potential rubber substitutes for use by the United States in World War II.

The name Silly Putty is a trademark of Crayola LLC; the company's factory is based in Easton, Pennsylvania, USA. Other names are used to market similar substances from other manufacturers.        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   Silly Putty -- I haven't seen that in years. Do they still make the stuff?

  I'd recognize that stuff anytime. A constant companion from when I was a wee lad.
  Mrs. Useo actually bought me an egg of it recently, & it's a popular item from my desk.
  Visiting kids keep trying to eat it, despite it being hydroxy-terminated polymers with boric acid, silica, thixatrol ST (castor oil derivative), polydimethylsiloxane, decamethyl cyclopentasiloxane, glycerine, and titanium dioxide.
  Not my definition of yummy.
  I've been fascinated with the attorney general news all day, when the net is on long enough to access it. Interesting timing for this repetitive outage.





Billy in Cypress said:
   That appears to be Silly Putty, the plastic antidote for the rubber eraser. In addition to its shape-shifting qualities, it could also be used to copy images from the newspaper, particularly comic strips.
  I heard from many people that it was a HUGE favorite of a child who never grew up, CpPDJT-ID, who said that he molded it into anything that he wanted even though others disagreed.

Former Employees Urge Strong Stand

ABC News

More than 230 former ABC News correspondents, executives and producers have signed a letter urging the network's current top executive to take a firm stand against any Trump (R-Pendejo) administration effort to curtail press access.

The letter, which circulated on a Facebook forum for ex-ABC News employees, was written after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer held an informal briefing last Friday excluding several news organizations that have done stories angering President Donald Trump and his team.

Signees ask ABC News President James Goldston to "take a public stand. Refuse to take part in any future White House briefings based on an invitation list of who's in/who's out."

"We've expressed our concerns to the White House that it operates in a way that's open, transparent and fair," Goldston said Wednesday. "And we will continue to stand with our colleagues who cover the White House and to protest when any government official fails to live up to those standards."

Signees include Reagan-era White House correspondent Sam Donaldson and former ABC reporters Ken Kashiwahara, Jeanne Meserve and Lynn Sherr. Among the executives are four former executive producers of "World News Tonight" and top leaders at "Nightline," ''20/20" and "Good Morning America." Prominent news executives Rick Kaplan, Bill Lord, Paul Friedman, Av Westin and Tom Yellin signed, along with documentarian and the late anchor Peter Jennings' widow, Kayce Freed Jennings.

Sends WH Press Corps New Espresso Machine

Tom Hanks

Days after President Trump (R-Crooked) declared war on the press, calling the media "the enemy of the people" and canceling his appearance at the upcoming White House Correspondents' Dinner, the White House press corps got a shot of support from one of America's most beloved actors: Tom Hanks.

Hanks sent reporters working inside the White House an espresso machine along with a typewritten note.

"Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way," the note reads. "Especially for the Truth part."

The machine, which was delivered along with a stack of Illy coffee pods, was engraved with the manufacturer's slogan: "For Music ~ Puccini. For Art ~ Bernini. For Espresso ~ Pasquini."

During a 2004 visit to the White House, Hanks was surprised to discover that the press corps did not have a working coffeemaker, so he sent an espresso machine.

Sign Yuge Book Deals

Obamas

Barack and Michelle Obama have signed a deal to publish their memoirs with New York-based Penguin Random House, in a coveted contract reportedly worth tens of millions of dollars.

America's first African American president is already the author of two memoirs and a children's book.

Michelle Obama's memoir is likely to be just as eagerly anticipated.

A descendant of slaves, she became the first African American first lady and garnered high approval ratings -- to the point where she was arguably one of the country's most respected and popular women.

Snowpack Nearing Record Depths

California

California surveyors say the Sierra Nevada snowpack is close to setting records after five years of punishing drought.

Officials said Wednesday the snowpack's water content measured at 185 percent of normal. A year ago, it was 84 percent of normal.

The snowpack is vital because it provides one-third of the state's water to homes and farms when it melts in the spring and summer.

Frank Gehrke, the state's chief snow surveyor, said the snowpack in some places is nearing levels last seen in 1983.

State climatologist Michael Anderson calls the current levels historic, especially in the central and southern Sierra Nevada, where double the normal amount of snow has fallen.

Lifting Green Rules Next Week

T-rump

U.S. President Donald Trump (R-Grifter) is likely to sign an executive order next week that lifts a ban on new federal coal mining leases and starts the process of killing other Obama-era initiatives to combat global climate change, a White House official said.

"Rescinding federal coal leasing moratorium is part of that executive order, which has lots of different components, including the Clean Power Plan," the official told Reuters on Wednesday by email, confirming the order was scheduled to come next week.

The Clean Power Plan is former President Barack Obama's centerpiece initiative to combat climate change, and requires states to slash emissions of carbon dioxide.

Senate Votes Down LGBT Discrimination Protections

Missouri

Missouri state senators early Wednesday gave initial approval to a measure that opponents have criticized as making it more difficult to sue for discrimination in the state and voted down protections for LGBT people.

Democrats railed against the bill on discrimination lawsuits for hours Tuesday before hammering out a compromise after midnight. It received initial approval in a voice vote.

Republicans and pro-business backers say it's now too easy to sue for discrimination in the state, but opponents argue the proposed change would allow discrimination to go unpunished.

Senators also in a 20-10 vote killed a proposed amendment by Creve Coeur Democratic Sen. Jill Schupp to ban discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations. Republican Sens. Caleb Rowden of Columbia and Ryan Silvey of Kansas City joined Democrats to support what's sometimes referred to as the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act.

Jump In Asylum Seekers From US

Canada

The number of migrants applying for refugee status in Canada after crossing the border from the United States has been rising since the beginning of the year, officials said Thursday.

"Canada has seen an increase in the number of asylum claims in January of this year, compared to the same time last year," the Canada Border Services Agency told a briefing.

From January 1 to February 21, a total of about 4,000 people filed refugee claims, up from 2,500 during the same period last year.

The figure includes border jumpers and those arriving from the United States at border checkpoints.

The recent wave of migrants originated mostly from East Africa and war-torn nations such as Syria.

Taj Mahal Casino Sold

Hard Rock

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn reached a deal Wednesday to sell the shuttered Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City to Hard Rock International and two New Jersey investors.

The sale comes four months after Icahn closed it amid a crippling strike.

A sale price was not revealed.

"We are excited to be part of this revitalization of Atlantic City creating thousands of jobs to help local employment," Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International, said in a statement. "We are 100 percent convinced Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City will be a success."

He said the company plans to invest $300 million in renovating and rebranding the property.

Rare Sighting In Mountains Of Arizona

Jaguar

Wildlife officials say they have evidence of a rare jaguar sighting in the United States, giving conservationists hope that the endangered cat is re-establishing itself here.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a photo Thursday from a trail camera that was taken in November and recently retrieved.

It shows the spotted cat wandering through the Dos Cabezas Mountains in Arizona about 60 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Fish and Wildlife spokesman Jeff Humphrey says it's the farthest north of the border that a jaguar has been seen in decades.

Officials say they can't tell the jaguar's gender or age from the photo. The two other jaguars that have been recently spotted were both male, and Arizona Game and Fish officials have said a female jaguar hasn't been spotted in decades.

But conservationists think the latest sighting is evidence that the jaguar is returning to the U.S. after decades away. They say a possible border wall could stop that.

How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
