TENNESSEE WILLIAMS’ WORKS ADAPTED TO ONE-ACTS

Donald Trump was photographed at the Iowa State Fair eating a pork chop on a stick. That’s what I love about America. You can fly on a personal jet and eat at five-star restaurants. But if you want to be president, when they hand you a pork chop on  stick in Iowa, you have to eat it.” – Jimmy Kimmel
DONALD TRUMP has yet to call an end to the violence epidemic. In 2013, 33,000 were killed by guns in America, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That’s higher than any developed country on the planet. There were 21,100 firearms suicides. In the last week, we almost had three mass shootings: the murders of the TV anchors in Roanoke; in West Virginia, a boy pointed a pistol in the teacher’s head and Boston cops stopped two men from massacring at a Pokemon convention.

DONALD TRUMP’S RADIO ALLIES

“Blind eye: Pope Francis has done little to combat priest sex abuse.” That’s the headline in the latest issue of Ms. Magazine penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael D’Antonio. “Nearly all of the recent action taken by the church has been spurred by whistleblowers, victims and advocates outside the church speaking out,” he writes, citing the KC Bishop Robert Finn case as an example. (Finn hails from our town.)
JEB BUSH BELIEVES PEOPLE SHOULD WORK LONGER HOURS. The 2016 candidate for prez believes extending the work day will boost economic growth (AlterNet). Meanwhile, three of his fundraising consultants are out due to “personality conflicts.”
IN ONE DAY ON RADIO you can hear nary a word of displeasure with Donald Trump from Limbaugh, Hannity, Ingraham and Savage.
