At the alarming rate that far-right judges are being appointed to lower-court benches, it won’t be long before we lose a vital bastion against Trumpism.
From The New Yorker:
McConnell didn’t just protect a Supreme Court seat for the next President; he basically shut down the entire confirmation process for all of Obama’s federal-judgeship nominees for more than a year. It’s the vacancies that accumulated during this time — more than a hundred of them — that Trump’s team is now working efficiently to fill.
Fuming after reading about the latest developments. The two parties are not the same!
The questionable professional ethics of Foyle’s ride companions are on his mind while they zip through the pastoral surroundings of Hastings in War Games and the austere streets of London in The Eternity Ring. Professional ethics certainly don’t concern Trump and his appointees as they daily violate with little repercussion the rules and laws governing their offices.
Give every man thy ear but few thy voice. – Hamlet
Circles, π, Fifty Ships, and Michael Kitchen — boundless in their beauty and perfection.
I hold it fit that we shake hands and part:
You, as your business and desire shall point you, —
For every man has business and desire,
Such as it is; – Hamlet
Foyle gazing, as only Michael Kitchen can, at the honorable young man who may be his son.
Replying to a Data Lounge query on cozy British murder mysteries, one forum member wrote:
…an interesting lesson on writing and showrunning. Foyle’s War should work outside of the premise. Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks are both good actors and their characters were interesting. Yet once WW2 was taken out of the equation, the story wasn’t interesting anymore. I think part of it was that having Weeks’ character marry put a wedge in the boss/employee relationship and the show just fell to pieces after that. Thank goodness they always kept the relationship as father/daughter. If they had Weeks have romantic feelings for Foyle, it would have ruined the entire show including the episodes already broadcast.
Poking fun at a cliché with Michael Kitchen at his deadpan best.
Magnificent photo. So-so spelling.
A time when murder investigations rarely involved a multitude of bullets (and victims) at the crime scene.
