Today in history

    I wasn’t expecting to like The Orville, not being a fan of Seth McFarlane’s previous work (I view Family Guy and American Dad as 30-minute bathroom breaks), but I was pleasantly surprised.

    For what it’s worth, the episode that the article’s picture comes from is a rewrite of the Star Trek: The Original Series episode “For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky.”

    Consider that November’s run-off election is between Keller and Lewis, we have a “choice” between a virtual third Berry term from Lewis, or an Anglicized version of Martin Chavez from Keller.

    I’m voting for Dumpster Fire.

    Apparently, “antifa” is now a form of sexual activity, according to Isaacson.

    So does holding a “TRUMP MUST GO” sign constitute foreplay?

    I’m guessing that “intercourse” involves setting cars on fire, smashing storefront windows, hitting opponents with a bike lock or tossing IEDs into the opposing crowd.

    The domain name — “” — gives it away.

    Just like the emails I get advertising R0lex watches, V1agra, etc.

    Wayne, I was happy to vote for you yesterday. You’re still the only one in City OR County government worth listening to.

    Considering that in November, we’re looking at either a virtual third Berry term (Lewis) or an Anglicized version of Martin Chavez (Keller), I’ll be voting for Dumpster Fire in November.
