Today’s news – Sunday, June 11, 2017

Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Quote for today … “The President’s new at this. He’s new to government. So, he probably wasn’t steeped in the long-running protocols that establish the relationships between DOJ, FBI and White Houses. He’s just new to this.” […] “He’s new at government, and so therefore I think that he — he is learning as he goes.” – Weasel-speak from the Wisconsin sycophant who is not new, but quite expert, at sucking-up. Or as a letter-to-the-editor in today’s Lebanon Daily News refers to the weasel as, “that skinny runt, Paul Ryan.”

Another quote for today … “For residents of Columbia and Wrightsville, we’ve lived with mayflies all our lives. The increase in the hatch of mayflies is an indication that the water is getting better.” Leo Lutz, Columbia’s mayor, in this LNP – Always Lancaster article: “Officials turn off Columbia bridge lights before mayfly swarms return.”

A third quote … “The first order of business is to realize that our governor (any governor) and our Legislature (any legislature) will never want to take steps to fundamentally fix the system as it exists today. Why should they? They have it pretty much the way they want it, and politicians love the status quo. So we cannot depend on the usual levers of government to upend the current system.” – From this Lancaster Online column: For Pennsylvania, some big fixes are worth considering.”
