I thought the Fourth
of July celebration on the Mall in Washington, D.C. was a tour de force in
patriotism. As The Washington Post, hardly a Trump fan club, said, “Trump
made his critics look small during his ‘Salute to America.’” “Of all the stupid freak-outs we have experienced

predicted a minimal turnout, it was quite
the opposite as I expected, with people showing up nine hours before the
President’s speech. It was a great celebration of American exceptionalism.

Let’s hope the Supreme Court can get in sync. It’s pure common sense.
I commented a few
weeks ago on how ludicrous it was to invite Hillary Clinton to be a keynote
speaker at the FireEye Cyber Defense Summit unless she was intending to give a
demonstration of how BleachBit worked. Apparently, she
has now withdrawn citing an “unforeseen circumstance”. I’m guessing the “unforeseen
circumstance” was her realization of how ridiculous she would look.
Flags are flying at
half mast in Kentucky, or they should be, as a Jim Beam warehouse has been
burning for about two days. I wonder if they had any of those Jim Beam
decanters that looked like Elvis? George Jones – The King is Gone (And So Are
