Marc Dion: One Wall Is Not Enough! (Creators Syndicate)
Señor Trump, he's gonna build a wall to keep Carlos and the boys in Mexico, and then native-born Americans can all get jobs on the third shift at the chicken de-boning plant. Don't expect more than the minimum wage though. The boys in charge may want to make America great again, but they're not stupid enough to pay hillbillies like us more than $10 an hour.
Lenore Skenazy: What Will Happen When the Robots Take Over? (Creators Syndicate)
We don't kill off our retirees just because they're not working anymore, so don't worry about our future robot overlords killing off us humans when we're no longer working, either - which we won't be, because the robots will be doing everything faster and better than we can, the way machines have been taking over human jobs since the dawn of the industrial age.
Susan Estrich: Reality (Creators Syndicate)
This is not a show. We don't get to change the station if we don't like it. We don't get a new choice for next year, or a whole new set of candidates. This is everything, and it's for four years. This is for all the people who don't like Hillary Clinton, wouldn't want to have a beer with her, just can't get their heads around the idea of voting for her.
Susan Estrich: Poor Huma (Creators Syndicate)
Huma Abedin has served Secretary Hillary Clinton loyally for her entire adult life. As far as I can tell, she has made one major mistake - a mistake that she shares in common with half the population (and which we can't say too much about, since it produced a beautiful baby, who I am sure she adores). She married the wrong person.
Kathy Benjamin: 5 Scientific Reasons We're Obsessed With Celebrities (Cracked)
A few weeks ago, a bomb exploded the internet. Major news outlets went crazy. Twitter had numerous top trending topics on the same subject for days. People wrote long thinkpieces about how we had gotten to this point. No, I'm not talking about Donald "Grab Them By The Pussy" Trump; that would come later. On September 20, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. And with that, one of Hollywood's biggest power couples was suddenly breaking up and breaking our hearts at the same time.
Taste buds contain the taste receptor cells, which are also known as gustatory cells. The taste receptors are located around the small structures known as papillae found on the upper surface of the tongue, soft palate, upper esophagus, the cheek and epiglottis. These structures are involved in detecting the five elements of taste perception: salty, sour, bitter, sweet and umami; through the combination of these elements we detect "flavors."
The average life of a taste bud is 10 days.
A week? I don't remember, but that seems about right.
Fall continues to be brilliant. It's a beautiful foil to the election nonsense. This time next week we'll have our first woman president. And maybe that wild-haired orange-colored loudmouth will STFU, finally.

Robert De Niro made crystal clear which candidate he supports this presidential election at the VIP cocktail reception for the 10th annual Friends of the Israel Defense Forces Western Regional Gala held Thursday at the Beverly Hilton. The event was chaired by producing giant and FIDF national board member Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl.
"If you're supporting Trump, I want nothing to do with you," said De Niro, after refusing to pose for a photograph with Arnold $chwarzenegger.
"Are you voting for Trump?" De Niro kept asking $chwarzenegger, channeling his inner Jake LaMotta as he rebuffed the former California governor's efforts to explain before backing off toward the other side of the room.
While $chwarzenegger, an avowed Republican, made a public announcement on Twitter that he would NOT be voting for Trump, he still hasn't made clear for whom he will be voting.
"If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem," said De Niro.

With marijuana legalization measures on the ballot in nine states Tuesday, investment opportunities are attracting money from Wall Street, Silicon Valley and publicly traded companies.
Much of the new money is avoiding direct investment in marijuana cultivation and sales, which remain illegal under federal law. Instead of getting their hands "green," new investors are putting their money into ancillary products, such as fertilizer, grow lights, software and payroll services.
Philadelphia sports empire scion Lindy Snider said she invested in startup Kind Financial, a firm that makes software to keep growers and retailers in compliance with shifting regulations. Silicon Valley angel investor Fulton Connor said he put money into a web marketplace linking growers and stores.
Scotts Miracle-Gro, a publicly traded gardening product manufacturer, has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to acquire companies that sell soil, lighting, fertilizer and other products to marijuana growers. Scotts' chairman and CEO Jim Hagedorn told Forbes that marijuana was "the biggest thing I've ever seen in lawn and garden."
And Microsoft Corp is partnering with Kind Financial to develop the part of its compliance software that will allow government regulators to track marijuana from farm to market.
Imprisoned transgender US soldier Chelsea Manning tried to commit suicide last month while serving time in solitary confinement for a first attempt in July, her representatives said Friday.
Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst sentenced to 35 years in prison for handing classified documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, tried to kill herself on October 4, according to a statement she dictated to supporters by phone 11 days later and released by The New York Times.
Manning's four-page statement, addressed to the inspector general of the intelligence community, indicates she attempted to commit suicide on the evening she was placed in solitary without prior notice.
Much of the statement described strange events that she said took place on the night of October 10, less than a week after the suicide attempt. These included a simulated attack on the prison and a mock rescue attempt, in which she refused to participate.

The company that owns the National Enquirer, a backer of Donald Trump (R-Vulgarian), agreed to pay $150,000 to a former Playboy centerfold model for her story of an affair a decade ago with the Republican presidential nominee, but then didn't publish it, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal and people familiar with the matter.
The tabloid-newspaper publisher reached an agreement in early August with Karen McDougal, the 1998 Playmate of the Year. American Media Inc., which owns the Enquirer, hasn't published anything about what she has told friends was a consensual romantic relationship she had with Mr. Trump in 2006. At the time, Mr. Trump was married to his current wife, Melania.
Quashing stories that way is known in the tabloid world as "catch and kill."
In a written statement, the company said it wasn't buying Ms. McDougal's story for $150,000, but rather two years' worth of her fitness columns and magazine covers as well as exclusive life rights to any relationship she has had with a then-married man. "AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump," the statement said.
Donald Trump (R-Tax Cheat) campaign manager Kellyanne Conway admitted to MSNBC's Brian Williams Thursday night that the Republican presidential candidate's recent campaign-trail proclamation - that Hillary Clinton faces a "likely indictment" by the FBI - is based on inaccurate reporting. Still, she said, factual or not, "the damage is done to Hillary Clinton."
The indictment claim stems from a since-retracted Fox News report alleging new developments in the FBI's long-running probe into interactions between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation. Fox News' Bret Baier reported Wednesday that "two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations" told him that there is "avalanche" of new evidence "coming in every day" into the more-than-yearlong probe, which is separate from the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. According to his sources, Baier said, the investigation "will continue to, likely, an indictment."
Other news outlets, including ABC News and CNN, quickly disputed the Fox News report after checking with their own sources, deeming the claim of a likely indictment "inaccurate and without merit" and simply "not true."
Still, Trump took to the campaign trail Thursday morning to announce "breaking news" about the FBI's investigation of the Clinton Foundation, announcing to the delight of many cheering supporters at a rally in Jacksonville, Fla., that "an avalanche of information is coming in" and that "the FBI agents say their investigation is likely to yield an indictment."

Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country, according to detailed accounting ledgers, contracts and related documents from 20 years ago provided to The Associated Press.
The details of Mrs. Trump's early paid modeling work in the U.S. emerged in the final days of a bitter presidential campaign in which her husband, Donald Trump (R-Buffoon), has taken a hard line on immigration laws and those who violate them. Trump has proposed broader use of the government's E-verify system allowing employers to check whether job applicants are authorized to work. He has noted that federal law prohibits illegally paying immigrants.
Mrs. Trump, who received a green card in March 2001 and became a U.S. citizen in 2006, has always maintained that she arrived in the country legally and never violated the terms of her immigration status. During the presidential campaign, she has cited her story to defend her husband's hard line on immigration.
The wife of the GOP presidential nominee, who sometimes worked as a model under just her first name, has said through an attorney that she first came to the U.S. from Slovenia on Aug. 27, 1996, on a B1/B2 visitor visa and then obtained an H-1B work visa on Oct. 18, 1996.
The documents obtained by the AP show she was paid for 10 modeling assignments between Sept. 10 and Oct. 15, during a time when her visa allowed her generally to be in the U.S. and look for work but not perform paid work in the country. The documents examined by the AP indicate that the modeling assignments would have been outside the bounds of her visa.
An Italian priest has said the recent earthquakes that have shaken the country, killing hundreds and leaving tens of thousands homeless, were "divine punishment" for gay civil unions, earning the Vatican's wrath.
Father Giovanni Cavalcoli, a theologian known for his hardline views, made the comments on October 30, the day central Italy was struck by a 6.6-magnitude quake -- the most powerful to hit the country in 36 years -- according to Italian media.
Cavalcoli said on Radio Maria that the seismic shocks were "divine punishment" for "the offence to the family and the dignity of marriage, in particular through civil unions".
The radio station distanced itself from his views and late Friday the Vatican issued a stinging rebuke, saying the idea of a vengeful God was "a pagan vision" dating from "the pre-Christian era".
Archbishop Angelo Becciu, number two in the Vatican's powerful Secretariat of State, said Cavalcoli's comments were "offensive to believers and disgraceful for non-believers", in remarks reported by Italian media.
