1123 (Nov. 23) are the first 4 numbers of Fibonacci’sequence, and today’s Fibonacci Day, named for one of the most important mathematicians of the Middle Ages. Not New Jersey, but cool.
This morning, on CBS 2 News This Morning, the newsreader talked about Donald Trump’s “controversial” comments about thousands of Arabs cheering from New Jersey when the Twin Towers came down on 9/11. Trump’s claims aren’t “controversial,” they’re discredited. For a long time now. I reminded CBS they’re a news organization this AM. If you’re on Twitter, please RT if you agree.
Former Gov. Kean disturbed by politicians’ rhetoric about Syrian refugees: American Muslims are ‘our best friends’ says Kean, who served as co-chair of national commission on September 11th attacks.
This Winners & Losers List is funny as hell and exactly what Politicker does best, political gossip, some of it important, some not. Dead-on about Gopal, btw.
Watch for this new pro-charter group. One of our U.S. senators and a couple state senators are with it.
Way beyond anything envisioned by the 2nd Amendment: Our permissive gun culture.
GOVERNOR CANDIDATE CHRISTIE, HILLARY CLINTON & DONALD TRUMP
- From Joan Quigley: Christie drops by Trenton for a veto visit: “One of the bills he vetoed was called the ‘Democracy Act.’ He probably didn’t even have to read that one to decide he didn’t like it.”
- Is Christie gaining voter support for hardline against Obama on Isis? Nope.
- Christie bashes Obama & White House on Syrian refugee plan: “He wants the American people to absorb this crisis that he’s created.”
- Meanwhile, Christie ducks CNN’s question of whether he’d oust the 75 Syrian refugees already placed here the year.
- Hillary Clinton’s inconsistent views on Iraq were fodder for a day of Christie talking points last week, as picked up by WaPo’s right-wing columnist.
- How did Christie do when scientists graded all the candidates on what they know about climate science?
- Squeaker: CNN’s qualification rules for Dec. 15 debate mean Christie may just make the cut for the main stage event.
- Trump riling up
his followersthe gullible with the old BS that “large Arab populations” in NJ cheered as the Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001.
- The ‘crazy uncle’ who shows up for turkey dinner spouting all kinds of wild theories. That’s Christie, says Mike Kelly.
I forgot to take notice Sunday of this moment 47 years ago yesterday of the first interracial kiss on TV – or was it? – on Star Trek between Captain Kirk and Lt. Uhura. Uhura was one of the first characters of African descent to be featured in a non-menial role on an American television series. She was played by trailblazer Nichelle Nichols, who was once convinced to remain on the show by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. Pretty much everything happened in 1968.
