What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo laid traps for troubadours who get killed before they reached Bombay

Some helpful hints on what to donate to a food bank. This is probably from the UK, but hearing these limitations, I think, are translatable. (Grokked from Ferrett Steinmetz)

SpaceX sticks the landing again.

The summer isn't a vacation for those that can't afford it. For the record, I was a latch-key child (which appears to have been all but outlawed these days). Also, the first "scholarship" I received was to go to summer camp. And I'm grateful for that experience.

The Hummus Wars, cultural appropriation and erasement seen from the outside.

WV Republican lawmaker tweets that Hillary Clinton "should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution... then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC." But, now that people actually read his tweet, he says it was all hyperbole. He really didn't mean it. Most abusive personalities will say that, jeez, can't you all take a joke?

Your RNC Bingo card. (Grokked from Dan)

And speaking of Stephen Colbert (that bingo card is from his site), he rushed the stage in Cleveland and gave an impromptu act, launching the "2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games!"

Okay, everyone, object lesson on freelancing. The guy who ghostwrote "The Art of the Deal" which launched the myth that the Trumpster as a serious businessman now has reservations about him being President. "… the prospect of President Trump terrified him. It wasn’t because of Trump’s ideology—Schwartz doubted that he had one. The problem was Trump’s personality, which he considered pathologically impulsive and self-centered." The whole article is more terrifying than even I thought the Trumpster was. (Grokked from Christopher Moore)

So, how's it going in Cleveland other wise? Paul Manafort, a Trumpster aid, disses Gov. Kasich and gets booed on TV. Jesus, criticize a sitting governor of the same party while in the state, that's some blend of cool-aid they're serving. And then there is Priebus who thinks Trumpster has both changed his position on muslims and also not changed his position. Dude, really, the Bette Ford Clinic is a very nice place. The Trumpster attacks Hillary for her vote for the Iraq War but gives Pence as pass on his vote for the war. Logic was never the conservatives strong position (at least at the GoPAC Memo), but this is just insane.
