Every day you read that Trump was "enraged" about this or that. It's never that...

...he is displeased, or unhappy, but always enraged. It must be exhausting to go through life with your outrage meter stuck on ten. Today's Talking Points Memo article is an example, but they do go on to say that he was merely having a "conniption", which I find a charming use of the language.

Am I right in thinking that the phone call that Trump had with President Zelensky....

....is known to us by a summary of various notes taken by NSA officials in the situation room? Has anyone asked if there is an official transcript, or, better yet, a recording? And if not, why not.

During a discussion about racism on The News Hour (PBS) a guest commentator....

....said that it is racist when you ask someone "where are you from?", if they appear to be foreign in speech or appearance. How do you feel about this? I ask the question all the time because it gives me the opportunity to learn about other people and the places that they have come from. Most immigrants, I think, love their home countries and enjoy telling you about them. I'll admit that I have very occasionally been met with some hesitancy, but I usually say something like "I hope that we've made you feel welcome" and don't believe that I've offended anyone.

Just read that a warehouse fire in Kentucky has destroyed 45,000 barrels....

of Jim Bean whiskey. Was concerned about this until I read further that they currently warehouse 3.3 million barrels in the state.
So the loss was 1.7%.
