    Unrelated? It's the start of the Donald's vengeance against Latinos who take jobs from Americans.

    I have, say, 5% suspicion these are kidnapping murders for shakedowns that went south, maybe with local LEO implicated for the "accident" cover story. Of course if that's true they will never be honestly investigated.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    It wasn't 2017, but New Year's Eve 2016. My friend for more than 30 years, Dave Baker, succumbed to his third bout with cancer. A true blue Dallas Cowboy fan, he watched them rack up double digit wins, but didn't have to suffer through another loss to the Packers in the big game. He wasn't really a hockey fan, but he did learn to live with my score updates, echoing call of SCORE! or G-O-A-L!, and the raucous, music blaring, renditions of D-rah, E-rah-N-rah, VER!

    Dave, you are missed. Rest In Peace
    GO DU !!!
