We got freezing rain and a bit less than an inch of wind driven snow yesterday. More is coming overnight tonight and into tomorrow but it should be considerably less that the 12+ inches we had last week. Good time to stay inside and warm.

I do love this analysis of the Trump phenomenon from Truth Out. His last description of Trump reminded me of Mussolini in his prime (arms crossed and chin thrust out while supporters savaged protesters). Has the American Il Duce arrived? And, yeah, I have seen that grainy newsreel footage.

Let's hope this style of debt "collection" doesn't come over here. Our style of debt harassment is bad enough.

Another interesting article on American anti-intellectualism. Daniel Moynihan is one to whom the saying "you are entitled to your own opinion but not to your own facts" is attributed. Unfortunately, now-a-days we can't agree on what is fact much less what those facts mean.
