Operation Cross Country And Junction City, Kansas

It seems that Friday the thirteenth was very exciting, last week, in Junction City, Kansas. The FBI apprehended some folks who were doing what teachers and administration from USD 380, Vermillion, and what former Congresswoman Sharon Schwartz's husband have emphatically stated never happen in Kansas: sex trafficking of children. The thing that makes Kansas very different from other states is the size of the population. There are only about 3 million people in Kansas, making it one of the most sparsely populated states in America, especially for its size; yet one of its cities, Wichita, is in the top five recruiting cities in the entire country for finding and recruiting victims! It does not matter what congressional representatives in Kansas tell us or what school principals tell us: the problem, according to the FBI, is real.

Pat Robertson Has The Answers

Once again, televangelist Pat Roberts has weighed in with the answers. This time, he wants everyone to know that the shooting in Las Vegas that happened over the weekend is the fault of individuals who do not respect our money laundering, mob enabling, pussy grabbing excuse for a president. That seems a bit odd, since pussy grabbing was one of the alleged reasons that the alleged biblical God destroyed the alleged ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. But who know? Maybe God has changed his mind about sexual misconduct over the years.

In 2010, Pat Robertson attributed a deadly earthquake in Haiti to a 200 year old pact with "the devil". In 2009, he warned the Christian community in America that Witches volunteer in candy factories to coax "demons" into Halloween candy for trick-or-treaters. Seriously; between Donald Trump, who professes to be a strong Christian, and Pat Robertson, why would anyone actually take that religion seriously, at this point in history, here in America?

Trump Is A Day Late And A Dollar Short

So Donald Trump gave us the real reason he wouldn't temporarily suspend the Jones Act in order to get supplies to storm ravaged Puerto Rico. Yep; he did not have the approval of Koch Brothers (not that Puerto Rico buys fuel from them) and others who ship goods to go ahead and save lives in Puerto Rico. The whims of the shipping industry and the dollars of big businesses have Trump's ear, his heart, and apparently, his decisions; while Trump's constituents have no representation. And this past week, it has cost American lives. We do not yet have an accurate count on deaths caused in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria, but after the storm lulled and it became possible to ship goods and medical supplies to the island, any death caused by waiting too long for the same can and should be blamed on Donald Trump. Nice going, Trump supporters. Many of us saw this coming. In fact, it is one of the biggest reasons he did not get the vote of yours truly. Say what you will about Trump's opponent; she would never have demanded that Americans die. Trump puts big business first. He does not care about people. Remember that.

Oh; it is worth mentioning that the Jones Act was suspended temporarily to get supplies into Texas and Florida after they were hit by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Donald Trump Has Yet To Visit Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria has knocked out all the power on the island of Puerto Rico, in addition to completely flooding it. Anywhere a person might go involves wading or swimming, and there is virtually no wifi or cell phone service. Could this be why Donald Trump has not bothered to visit Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria? President Obama would have bothered. Even while campaigning for president during 2012, he immediately cancelled his campaign stops in order to survey the damage caused on the East Coast by Hurricane Sandy. Many, many people in New Jersey and New York were also left without electricity, but that did not stop President Obama from responding to his constituents.

Anyone who needs to find out if a friend or relative in Puerto Rico is safe can or call the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration's Office in Washington DC at 202-800-8133 or 202-778-0710. The island's government radio station, WIPR, can be reached at 787-777-0940 and 787-766-0505. Puerto Rico's disaster relief team can be emailed at, and, of course, the Red Cross is accepting donations and training volunteers.

Maybe Donald Trump is waiting for electricity and wifi before he visits Puerto Rico. He is, after all, not accustomed to any sort of inconvenience or difficulty.

Lyon Sisters And Lloyd Lee Welch

Last week, Lloyd Lee Welch pleaded guilty to the kidnapping and subsequent murders of Katherine Lyon, 12 years old, and Sheila Lyon, 10 years old, both of Kensington, Maryland, in March of 1975. For forty years, their disappearance was a mystery, until Montgomery County Police in Maryland decided to look over the files and the composite drawing of a man who had been seen following them. From there, they realized that Lloyd Lee Welch had paid them a visit, in a vain effort to collect reward money for knowledge of their whereabouts immediately after they disappeared. He failed a polygraph, so they didn't take him seriously. This makes him the first person of whom I have ever heard to be turned loose by the police for failing a polygraph.

I thought I would feel better after Lloyd Lee Welch went to court to enter his guilty plea in the 1975 murders of Sheila and Katherine Lyon, but I really don't. The message from Maryland is sadly clear: child abuse, including but not limited to murder, is still okey-dokey with Maryland authorities. I have yet to see Maryland authorities actually care what happens to children, even children of the rich and famous. We still do not know the whole story, and we still have not recovered the girls' remains.

We Crashed The Cassini

We crashed the Cassini into Saturn, after it voyaged for twenty years. We didn't want it to crash on its own into one of Saturn's moons, which might support life, so we crashed it into the planet's atmosphere. We got quite a few pictures of Saturn and its moons over the years. Below is one of them.
