  1. Not so much interested in titles. Those will come easily enough, I think, for him. I'm hoping to find recommendations or firsthand experience with some of the new ways of doing this. Apps and digital platforms that allow a reader to use an iPad or tablet to look at classic and new releases sound like a good idea.
  2. So the latest report is that apparently the rescue chopper was manned by private contractors. These contractors didn't have a headcount - because they were not running the mission - they didn't take all of the wounded. We know this because Johnson turned his locator beacon was activated on the battlefield. He was alive and left behind. They weren't able to recover the body for 48 hrs. He's also not getting an open casket funeral which suggests he was mutilated by ISIS after he was killed.
  3. My boy is in 2nd grade. He's an emerging, willing reader and likes superheroes. We've checked out some age-appropriate graphic novels from our local library. Do any of you using apps or monthly services for digital comics? I know Marvel has one, Amazon owns Comixology, and I'm sure there are more. Any recommendations? Ideally, I'd like to find a way for him to read comic books offline but it's not essential.
  4. $500k for speeches for a former president is not entirely surprising. But to your point, from the same Newsweek article I referenced:
  5. David Brent has something to say about that.
  6. Also from Newsweek: "Assessment: Yes, the foundation received money and Bill Clinton was paid to give a speech, but there’s no evidence the Clintons were paid by Russians to push through the uranium deal."
  7. what bribe exactly are you referring to?
  8. there used to be a gold thread in the FFA. it's exponentially more irrational.
  9. Officially the weirdest thing about DJT's presidency. ETA - I forgot to write "today"
  10. He was talked up as a rookie. He was expected to emerge at some point.
  11. A few years ago there was a show on ESPN, I think, that had a former HOF NFL player that coached a season of high school football. The show was presented like he was at every practice, coaching players, training them, and their head coach. He even brought in another former player to help him coach and connect with players. As it turns out, it was just skillfully edited like many "reality" shows. The former player - who I can't recall - apparently was mostly just showing up on game days. He was having his assistant coaches do all the work. Hillary, I suspect, would not be in for the grind of academia. She'd be just a celebrated guest lecturer.
  12. You're not trying very hard, Ren. Clinton Foundation was allowed to accept money from foreign gov't while she was SoS. They could receive donations from gov'ts that had given before and in amounts that were not exceeding previous donations. This is pretty common, in fact, as donations are spread out over several years often times. A $25 million donation might be spread out over 5 years, for example. I'm not going to do the legwork to see what the Russians were donating over the years to the Foundation but if it's not meaningfully different year to year? BFD. Christ almighty, that she "served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow" might be the laziest bit of writing. It's the most amorphous term to describe her role in in the uranium deal. Yes, she worked for the gov't.
  13. "Melania, baby, it was just locker room talk. I was just trying to impress Billy Bush..."
  14. He's brimming with warmth
  15. Reading Vanity Fair, Dodds? Are you in the waiting room of your doctor's office or something? It's not your usual fare...
