I’m on record as throwing “Banned Book Week” under the bus (item #5) … But the “challenging” list — which somehow slope off into “banning”s — does offer a look-see into public perceptions.  And with that what’s being bunted about in Oregon — worth a lo

On the Coming of the … new wave? … “The thing that Roy Moore really has, and everybody thinks it’s the Ten Commandments, it’s actually taking on The Man. And that’s kind of a bipartisan thing. That’s a Trump thing, that’s a Chris McDaniel thing,” said Jeff Roe […] Ultimately, there’s a

Accusations of “sour grapes” pour in on Hillary Clinton’s new book — sour grapes in the not quiet accurate common misuse that does not align to Aesop — real sour grapes in the Aesopean tradition would have Hillary Clinton saying “So I didn’t get to be president.  Who cares —
