Marc Dion: Trump Sings the Rainbow (Creators Syndicate)
"Red and yellow and pink and green/ Purple and orange and blue/ I can sing a rainbow, / sing a rainbow..." Remember that song from your sweet little childhood days? Me, too. Now, let's sing the "alt-right" rainbow: "White and straight and white and white/ White and Christian and white/ I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow..."
New Hampshire is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Massachusetts to the south, Vermont to the west, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. New Hampshire is the 5th smallest by land area and the 9th least populous of the 50 United States.
Concord is the state capital, while Manchester is the largest city in the state and in northern New England, including Vermont and Maine. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income (other than interest and dividends) taxed at either the state or local level. The New Hampshire primary is the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. Its license plates carry the state motto, "Live Free or Die". The state's nickname, "The Granite State", refers to its extensive granite formations and quarries.
Randall was first and correct with:
"Live Free or Die" is the motto for New Hampshire, I think, so I'll go
with New Hampshire for the license plate.
The destination state
For Massachusetts residents looking for tax free booze. New Hampshire.

Personnel stand aboard the Finnish icebreaker MSV Nordica as it arrives into Nuuk, Greenland, after traversing the Northwest Passage through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Saturday, July 29, 2017. After 24 days at sea and a journey spanning more than 10,000 kilometers (6,214 miles), the MSV Nordica has set a new record for the earliest transit of the fabled Northwest Passage. The once-forbidding route through the Arctic, linking the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans, has been opening up sooner and for a longer period each summer due to climate change.

Donald Trump (R-Corrupt) may be an easy target for the late-night shows, but many of the writers behind them find POTUS' continued unpredictability to be exhausting.
For one, Trump's penchant for tweeting a mix of insults and policy each morning actually makes their jobs harder. "The tweets usually come in right as we finish our morning meeting and just planned our entire show for the day," The Daily Show writer Hallie Haglund said at the Television Critics Association's press tour on Saturday in Pasadena, California. "And then they come in and it's like, 'Well, f- that, we shouldn't even have had a meeting, because now we have to do all this stuff."
One of the key challenges, the writers said, is finding the actual joke when so much of the news about the current administration that comes out these days seems almost unbelievable. "How do I heighten this?" Haglund said. "How do I not just show it, step back and be like, 'Well, there's nothing left to do with this that it's so ridiculous?' That's always the challenge."
Another challenge "is to try to avoid the low hanging fruit like this person talks funny or has funny hair," Nangle added. "We try to look at what goes deeper than all that insanity? What made this man? We made him, we allowed this to happen, so as much as you can go deeper without being heavy handed, that's what we aim for."
The other key is the balance of appealing to both sides without alienating anyone just because of their political beliefs. "It's hard because you don't want to say to a Trump voter, 'You're so stupid, you got conned,' people will retreat into, 'No, I'm right, I'm right,'" Nangle said, noting that it's more about letting viewers "see for yourself as opposed to portraying people as dumb idiots."

Sea ice that foiled famous explorers and blocked the passage to all but the hardiest ships has slowly been melting away in one of the most visible effects of man-made global warming.

You loved the first True Detective season, and you meh-ed the second one. But that doesn't mean HBO is ready to throw in the towel. A third season is in the works, and we know now who will make the series great again: Mahershala Ali.
There's absolutely no doubt in anyone's mind that Ali is one of the greatest stars of the moment. You've seen him in Netflix's House of Cards before he won an Academy Award for his performance in Moonlight. He also made noticeable appearances in Luke Cage and Hidden Figures.
That said, Ali is about to embark on what may possibly be one of the most iconic roles of his career. That's because True Detective is something else when it comes to TV crime shows. And Ali was just confirmed to play the lead in the upcoming season.
According to Vulture, HBO confirmed Ali's casting at the annual Television Critics Association summer press event on Wednesday.
Ohio police say a rare gold replica of the lunar space module has been stolen from the Armstrong Air and Space Museum.
Police in Wapakoneta, in northwest Ohio, responded to an alarm at the museum just before midnight Friday and discovered the 5-inch high, solid-gold replica had been stolen.
Replicas of the lunar excursion module produced by Cartier were presented to Neil Armstrong and his two fellow astronauts, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, in Paris shortly after their historic space mission. Armstrong, a Wapakoneta native, became the first person to step onto the moon's surface in July 1969.
The FBI and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are assisting Wapakoneta police in an investigation of the theft.

Japanese scientists have genetically engineered a chrysanthemum flower that is "true blue" - a color that has long eluded flower breeders and researchers.
Blue has proved a challenge to produce in many other popular flowers, including roses, carnations and lilies.
It hasn't happened until now in chrysanthemums due to the "recalcitrant and unpredictable expression of introduced genes," Naonobu Noda from Japan's National Agriculture and Food Research Organization tells The Two-Way. Noda is the lead author of the paper released today in Science Advances.
The researchers then took genes from two very blue flowers - butterfly peas and Canterbury bells - and snuck them into the chrysanthemum.
Those two genes modified the chrysanthemums' natural pigment to create a colorful molecule called delphinidin.
As fellow Republicans labored to repeal Obamacare this week, Donald Trump (R-Crooked) repeatedly swerved off-topic, escalating concerns in his party about his ability to govern the country six months after taking office.
While senators grappled with healthcare, Trump banned transgender people from the military. He regaled a Boy Scout jamboree with a tale from a New York cocktail party. He indulged an obscene tirade by his flamboyant new communications director.
In the end, the Senate's efforts collapsed in a predawn vote on Friday, magnifying the ineffectiveness that often goes with the chaos around Trump, the constant storm of tweets, the White House infighting, the self-inflicted wounds.
In the latest twist, Trump late on Friday named U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his new White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus, who has been in a feud with Trump's new communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
Among some establishment Republicans, there were signs that patience with Trump was wearing thin.

Hackers attending this weekend's Def Con hacking convention in Las Vegas were invited to break into voting machines and voter databases in a bid to uncover vulnerabilities that could be exploited to sway election results.
The 25-year-old conference's first "hacker voting village" opened on Friday as part of an effort to raise awareness about the threat of election results being altered through hacking.
Hackers crammed into a crowded conference room for the rare opportunity to examine and attempt to hack some 30 pieces of election equipment, much of it purchased over eBay, including some voting machines and digital voter registries that are currently in use.
"We encourage you to do stuff that if you did on election day they would probably arrest you," said Johns Hopkins computer scientist Matt Blaze, who organized the segment in a conference room at the Caesar's Palace convention center.
The exercise featured a "cyber range" simulator where blue teams were tasked with defending a mock local election system from red team hackers.
The European Union's top court ordered Poland on Friday to immediately halt large-scale logging in an ancient protected forest, one of many cases that has pitted the nationalist, eurosceptic government in Warsaw against the bloc.
The EU's executive Commission earlier this year sued Poland at the European Court of Justice (ECJ) over logging in the Bialowieza forest, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Straddling the border between Poland and Belarus, it is one of Europe's last primeval forests and home to its largest herd of European bison as well as unique birds and insects.
In an interim decision, the ECJ said the logging should stop immediately as it could cause "serious and irreversible damage" to the forest. The main case filed by the Commission against Warsaw at the ECJ could take years to conclude.
The Commission has said the logging violates the bloc's wildlife protection laws. Poland's environment ministry, which declined to comment on the ECJ announcement, says it is needed to protect the forest from an invasion of beetles.

After 24 days at sea and a journey spanning more than 10,000 kilometers (6,214 miles), the Finnish icebreaker MSV Nordica has set a new record for the earliest transit of the fabled Northwest Passage.
The once-forbidding route through the Arctic, linking the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans, has been opening up sooner and for a longer period each summer due to climate change. Sea ice that foiled famous explorers and blocked the passage to all but the hardiest ships has slowly been melting away in one of the most visible effects of man-made global warming.
Records kept by Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans show that the previous earliest passage of the season happened in 2008, when the Canadian Coast Guard ship Louis L. St-Laurent left St. John's in Newfoundland on July 5 and arrived in the Beaufort Sea off Point Barrow on July 30.
The Nordica, with a team of researchers and Associated Press journalists on board, completed a longer transit in less time - albeit in the opposite direction - setting off from Vancouver on July 5 and reaching Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, on July 29.
While the icebreaker encountered Chinese cargo vessels, Alaskan fishing boats and a German cruise ship in the Pacific, upon entering the Canadian Archipelago, the Nordica traveled alone. Radar indicated the presence of the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Sherman near Point Barrow; along the coast an occasional collection of houses revealed evidence of human settlement in the far north.
U.S. aviation authorities were ordered back to the drawing board on Friday to solve what a federal appeals judge called "The Case of the Incredible Shrinking Airline Seat."
Judge Patricia Millett told the Federal Aviation Administration to take another look at an advocacy group's assertion that shrinking airline seats are imperiling passenger safety.
The judge rejected the FAA's argument that seat size was unimportant to getting off the plane in an emergency.
Airline seats have steadily decreased in size over the last several decades. Economy-class seat pitch has decreased from an average of 35 inches (89 cm) in the 1970s to 31 inches (79 cm), and in some airplanes to 28 inches (71 cm).
Average seat width has narrowed from about 18 inches (46 cm)to 16.5 inches (42 cm) over the last decade.
