Esme Cribb: "WH Claims CNN Retracted Concerns About Conway's 'Credibility' (It Didn't)" (TPM)
White House press secretary Sean Spicer incorrectly claimed on Tuesday that CNN "denied" reports that the network passed over booking President Donald Trump's top advisor Kellyanne Conway due to issues with her "credibility."

RICHARD PÉREZ-PEÑA: In Libel Suit, Melania Trump Cites Loss of Chance to Make Million (NY Times)
A lawsuit filed by Melania Trump depicts her heightened profile as a "unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to make millions of dollars in business, once again raising questions about the relationship between President Trump's official role and his family's business interests.

Christina Cauterucci, Mark Joseph Stern, and Josh Voorhees: Why Melania Trump's Own Lawyer Is Arguing She Would Have Made Millions Exploiting Her Role (Slate)
… this suit might really be designed for a different purpose entirely: to bankrupt and destroy the Daily Mail. As our colleague Osita Nwanevu has noted, Melania is being represented by Charles Harder-who rose to fame as Hulk Hogan's attorney in his own lawsuit against Gawker. Hogan's suit, bankrolled by Trump adviser Peter Thiel, also asked for, and was awarded, mind-bogglingly high damages ($140 million), which ultimately bankrupted Gawker Media.

Will Oremus: Why the White House Keeps Crying "Fake News" (Slate)
It's a desperate ploy to distract the media from their real jobs.

What anti-Trump protesters can learn from the successes, and mistakes, of the anti-Vietnam War movement.

Michele Hanson: We are a rich country that can afford to pay for proper care - so why don't we? (The Guardian)
It is hard work to look after your elderly relatives. Ailments are not health problems if you're over 70 - they're a social problem that we must all pay for.

JF Sargent: "Cracked Destroys A Meme: Dave Rubin's Anti-Progressive Video" (Slate)
… host Dave Rubin runs through a list of the outrageous things he claims "progressives" want, but nothing he mentions bears any resemblance to anything I or anybody I have ever met is actually fighting for.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question of the Day

According to Jim Croce, who was "badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog"?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Phobos and Deimos are the moons of what planet?

       Mars                                                      Source

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, after Mercury. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often referred to as the "Red Planet" because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.

The rotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth, as is the tilt that produces the seasons. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano and second-highest known mountain in the Solar System, and of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons in the Solar System. The smooth Borealis basin in the northern hemisphere covers 40% of the planet and may be a giant impact feature. Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are small and irregularly shaped. These may be captured asteroids, similar to 5261 Eureka, a Mars trojan.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:

Mark. said:
   I think Phobos and Deimos orbit Mars. (Weren't they named after the god Mars' children?)

Randall wrote:

Deborah replied:
   Mars, I think.
  The relentless, epic rain closed 3 of 5 lanes of WB I-80 about 12 miles west of here, as well as many local roads. We had a few hours of not-rain yesterday, and about 4 am it started hammering away again. 2017 is serving up incredible history, on several levels. I'm grateful to be here and be part of it, but damn. At what cost?

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Moons of Mars

Adam answered:

Kevin K. in Washington, DC said:
   Those are the moons of Mars.
  Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.

Gene replied:
   Mars. It has been speculated they are captured asteroids because of how recently in history they were discovered, and their irregular shapes.

zorch wrote:

Billy in Cypress answered:
   Phobos and Deimos are the moons of Mars, the red planet.
  It is good to have you back. It was so lonely on the internet without you.

DJ Useo responded:
   Well, I was wrong with the answer "pickles" yesterday, so it's sure to be correct today. Lol.
  No, It's "Mars", as I've been aware of since a very young age. All that sci-fi as a kid, you know.

Reader Comment/Suggestion

Current Events

I love the SCOTUS nominee criticizing Lumpy--sorry, but I'm too cynical to buy it. I think the guy is figuring he'll have an easier time getting confirmed if he appears independent. Lumpy is too stupid to think of that strategy, but Bannon puts inflammatory words in his mouth; nominee appears to criticize outrageous remarks, wins Brownie points, hoodwinks the gullible, and gets more votes as he sets himself up for life. Why are media & Senators buying this BS?!
