Teh Squeaky Wheel
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, GN!
It looks like Rep. Elijah Cummings might have some ‘splainin’ to do…if Issa had any ‘nads. (Which -- based on facts in evidence -- he doesn’t appear to possess.)
Good morning, Fatwa.
It does appear that Cummings has a few things to clear up about his involvement in the IRS targeting Conservatives scandal, but he’ll probably punt today and say he’s conducting his own investigation, that he had no direct knowledge, then eventually get around to blaming “low-level employees” or “rogue underlings” and then finish with at this point in time, what difference does it make anyhow?
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
I wonder if the MSM will cover the Cummings story? I’m sure their best copywriters and most dogged reporters are on the case at this very moment -- looking for some other story to distract us with.
Well today was certainly a day. At 9:30 we went on lock-down. It seems there was an officer-involved shooting a few blocks away and the hunt was on for the suspect. The lock-down ended about 2:00 with the suspect in custody. My students were great -- they had questions, but didn’t complain. We were able to have campus security escort groups of students to the rest room, so we didn’t have to resort to the 5-gallon bucket with the toilet seat that we all have as part of our emergency kit.
The responsibility must have weighed heavily on you. I am glad that was that ended up happening, Paddy.
Glad everything worked out, Paddy, and good on you for keeping your classroom calm and orderly. Funny how back in the olden days, we didnt worry about things like that, just prepared for the nuclear blast from the Russians! Times have changed.
a bucket with a toilet seat? HS Kate would have climbed out the 3rd story window first. Now, I guess I would have to break the window. Back then -- turn the latch if it wasn’t open already.
My father received a few calls about his errant daughter sitting, reading in open 3rd floor windows at Uni. The windows had nice wide marble ledges -- perfect, I thought, for reading with a breeze. Since he didn’t mention the calls for 20 years, I don’t think he saw it as a problem.
