W.C. Fields is credited with the line, “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with…” well you remember the last word and I’m protective of my PG rating. So, message communicated.

Fast and furious; that is how the political news keeps coming in. Today I’ll try and briefly comment on some of it.
Timestamp: Saturday afternoon.
I included a timestamp because this is a dynamic situation, or at least I hope it is! I am calling on New Jersey Democratic Senator Robert Menendez to resign. There you have it plain and clear, up front.
