If you thought the election went badly for Donald Trump, the post election has been worse. 

By one count, Team Trump lost 46 election lawsuits in a row. Then came Nevada in which former Attorney General Adam Laxalt led a team that went into court and got its collective butt kicked. They said they had had overwhelming evidence of voter irregularity. 

In fact, the judge ruled that none of it — zero, nada, zip — was even close to evidence fit for a courtroom. 

Of course, the loss exposed (again) our hopelessly partisan Attorney General, Aaron Ford, who used the ruling to crow about the flawless Nevada election system. 

It was a bad look. And, believe me, Nevada’s election process is anything but flawless. It is always in need of tuning one way or the other.

But I digress. The point today is that Team Trump in Nevada has yet to put up one piece of compelling evidence. So, my advice is to shut up. And that goes for the current AG, too.


Remember how grandma loved to garden? Well, now, thanks to modern science, she could be the garden. A funeral company out of Washington State called Recompose has a new process of converting human remains into soil. And, it’s getting state approval. (Oh, those Washington State folks.)

As for me, the whole idea gives me the creeps.

Son: “Jim Morrison was overrated!”

Dad: “What did I tell you about slamming the Doors?”

— What has 8 actors, 4 locations, 2 writers and 1 plot? 562 Hallmark Christmas movies. 

— Remember “i” before “e” except when your foreign friend Keith receives eight counterfeit beige sleighs from feisty caffeinated weightlifters. Weird.

And with that,  I’ll pick up my knitting and let myself out. Be kind. Mask up.
