Morning Reads for Friday, April 21, 2017

PSA: It appears this announcement needs to be made from time to time. The Friday Morning Reads are more free-spirited than other weekday offerings. Less political, weirdly entertaining, and definitely more geeky. Your mileage may vary.

  1. I appreciate the PSA. I hope you don’t mind my feedback.

    If your lead-in to links were more descriptive, I would be more likely to click through and read the backing stories, which I assume is the point of posting the links. ‘Oops’ and ‘Tanking’ don’t cut it information-wise, although after mouse-hovering I know I’ll skip reading about the left’s ultimate plan (destruction of all we hold dear, right?) and be sure to catch up with river-floating via stock tanks (which I first witnessed some years ago in Missouri).

    As always, thanks for the time and effort to pull these links together.

  2. I’m concerned about what will happen to Gwinnett County when it flips politically, as is poised to happen in the next half-dozen years. It wasn’t pretty in DeKalb County, or in Clayton County where problems were exacerbated by the Great Recession. Gwinnett’s similarities to DeKalb of 25-30 years ago are striking. A School Board and Superintendent that have been around for ages (and that had/are doing a good job), and County government loaded with old hands, Conway, Porter, Nash et al. I hope Gwinnett fares better than DeKalb or Clayton did.

    Moving on to Precedential virtues, Trump is making America great again by restoring the luster to GOP foreign policy. What with Trump single-handedly in less than 100 days in office eliminating Chinese currency manipulation without even having to officially declare the Chinese as manipulators, and reviving NATO from obsolescenc—“NATO, obsolete, because it doesn’t cover terrorism. I said that the allies must pay. Nobody knew that they weren’t paying. I did. I figured it”. He’s just that good. Someone let me know when it’s Mission Accomplished.
