What happens to America if Trump loses? A sobering possibility.

Republicans should beware a contested convention. A commentary from the Chicago Tribune.

A John Kasich victory in Ohio tomorrow goes a long way towards stopping Trump short. Super Delegates can be a bitch.

Clinton and Trump roll on… WTF happened in Tuesday’s big primaries.

All F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets come with a female voice that issues greetings and warnings, in tones ranging from stern and sharp to extremely urgent. It doesn’t matter if the pilot is wearing a Malaysian, Kuwaiti, or Australian flag on his flight suit, the airplane speaks in a Tennessee twang that sounds a lot like Loretta Lynn in the middle of a very bad day. Embark on a miscue, and the jet issues an audible correction: “Roll right!

It’s a crying shame that Bernie Sanders campaign seems to be heading to the electoral trash heap… many ideas this man has that I couldn’t say one way or another whether they’d work… but I’d sure love to see him try with a democratic Congress… Que sera.

Taking a week off… be back Monday the 28th.
