Star Of The Circus

I consider any college coach who would abet by inaction the sexual molestation of his player(s) a sub-human lifeform. Having had the privilege of coaching at that level for seven seasons I find it particularly offensive! Enter Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio.

He Told Us

Tuesday Bill Barr testified before the House Judiciary Committee. I watched significant portions of the hearing live.

Today (Saturday morning) I will write ahead while catching up with the news that I’m behind commenting on. Let’s explore. Continue reading Ahead From Behind
