    I think Jr. is dumber and less charming than his father.

    Stopped that clip when they started clicking the 'empty' gun. Call me a snowflake but I didn't want to see what i was sure was coming.

    Agree that the JT label from that universe is exactly right for the Donalds!

    While two bald men wrestle over the Brexit comb in Britain,Trump’s protectionism and the slump in global demand for for manufactured goods grind away behind their backs. Something bigger and more toxic than Brexit is coming down the pipe.

    I let my mind wander over the Trump border visit today. Faulty satnav then a flat tyre in Juarez at dusk. A call from El Chapo ( from jail, to find out if kids have had their bedtime story).

    Don,

    No one dies, but the gun does go off as guns tend to do.

    Thinking about it, I believe I just found the suspense, knowing with absolute certainty the gun would go off, but not knowing when, too excruciatingly banal.

    Agreed! Must admit, I'm having a hard time getting my head around this. It’s eerie!

    Bit like the guy who, in the late 19th century, wrote a novel in which he described an enormous ocean liner called Titan, which hit an iceberg in the Atlantic and sank with the loss of most of its complement.

    A report from NBC now says that Trump's plan is to raid disaster recovery funds for Puerto Rico, and other Army Corps of Engineer funding, under emergency authority, to pay for some wall. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/im...ake-billions-disaster-areas-fund-wall-n957281

    This proposal is designed to create maximum outrage in Democrats and maximum delight in the racist 30%. So it's a perfect idea from Trumps point of view. The more brown people and their allies hate him, the more his base loves him, and that's what Trump loves.

    He is a JT. A ginoromous, racist JT.

    There, I said it.

    UKIP campaigned on exactly this pledge- that foreign aid would cease and the money would be spent on needy white people inside one of the world’s richest countries.

    That's of course most likely it. The writer was a guy who happened to know and love, so to speak, Fred Trump.

    Could find out little about the writer, John D. Robinson. He was a successful TV writer and producer, mostly of westerns. Biggest success was probably as producer of the series "Wanted, Dead or Alive." Could find nothing but his credits and the barest biographical details. Born 10/12/1923, California, died 4/3/1999.

    If I'd ever heard of that Titanic/Titan story, I'd forgotten it. Just shows that the hubris and irony embodied in the real Titanic events was broad and bold enough for fiction.

    Joe, maybe it's time to update the AUP's registration requirements?
