    • Here we go again
      This is one more reason why Biden will need to expand the federal bench and add a couple hundred new judges: @fedjudges reports the White House is nominating Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, an associate at Jones Day, and former clerk to Justice Thomas, to a lifetime-tenured judgeship in Florida. She graduated college in 2009, earned her … Continue reading Here we g […]

    • Biden Picks Kamala Harris As VP
      The two most important consequences of this decision come from the fact that Biden is old and almost certainly senile. This means that Harris stands a good chance of becoming President if Biden dies or his incapacity becomes un-concealeable even with the best drug cocktails. If that doesn’t happen, Kamala is odds on to be […]

Trump rally tonight in the Burgh. Should I stay or should I go?

imageThis is the map to Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall. It’s where Trump is having a rally tonight. It also happens to be located smack dab in the middle of Pitt’s campus and about three blocks away from CMU. In other words, there are going to be protesters. Lots of them. PA is also an open carry state and we don’t mean beer (though I’m sure the students would be totally ok with that).

There’s also a rally on the Roberto Clemente bridge with John Fetterman. He’s running for Senate and he’s a Sanders guy. He’s my down ticket donation this year. (I can split my ticket). That could be fun. I leave work at protest time for the bridge. It’s on the way to the bus stop. And the most violence I would expect there would be minor hair pulling between the Sanders peeps and any Clintonistas.

Considerations: I’m only going to observe. Chanting slogans will depend on the quality of the lyrics. I did not wear my Kevlar vest to work today. I can probably bop into a CVS for portable yogurt in case of pepper spray. Will charge iPhone to capture pics but I don’t have a different camera. Can periscope if necessary but I need a haircut and I’m not doing any close ups.

So, what’ll it be?  Ground zero across from the Cathedral of Learning or a peaceful protest on the bridge?

If I stay there will be trouble, if I go there will be double.

So, you’ve got to let me know. Should I stay or should I go?

update: Tweet of the Day!
