ERBIL, Iraq — With Iraqi forces surrounding Mosul for an imminent assault, residents are hoarding food and furtively scrawling resistance slogans on walls, the city’s Islamic State rulers are building tunnels and staying out of sight of drones, and Iraqi helicopters are dumping leaflets predicting that the end of the terrorist reign is near.

Donald Trump is laying the groundwork to lose on Nov. 8, refuse to concede the election, and teeter the country into an unprecedented crisis of faith in government. Republicans and Democrats, in Washington and beyond, fear that the aftermath of the 2016 election will create a festering infection in the already deep and lasting wound that the campaign is leaving on America.

This seems to be the latest attack on Trump by the Dems, not that Donald didn't bring it on himself. It is also the lead story on NPR this morning.

Around the end of high school, Sean Riley got hooked on using wet wipes as toilet paper. He first encountered them at a friend's house on the back of the toilet, and decided to give them a try. “It’s just a totally different feeling,” he says . “You see what you were leaving behind.”
When he moved into an apartment in Chicago with his three best friends after college, Riley stocked wet wipes in the bathroom. It didn’t take long for the guys to have what he calls “the conversation”: They all admitted they were addicted. Once they felt that moist rub, they couldn’t turn back to the brittle chafe of toilet paper. They made a trip to Sam’s Club together to buy wet wipes in bulk.
They're not that addicting. But if they were mentholated,that would be another story.
Americans are apparently incredibly stressed out by the election this year. The American Psychological Association (APA) has just released some early results from its Stress in America survey, which is due out early next year. The central finding is that, regardless of political affiliation, more than half of the people polled are significantly stressed out by the election. This isn’t the first mention of election stress, of course – one psychologist dubbed a new disorder, Election Stress Disorder. And the anecdotal evidence of election-related fatigue, and politically-fueled Facebook defriendings, abounds. Now, thanks to the APA, there are some hard data to back it all up.
Do you feel stressed? I feel stressed.
Yes, that amount is $22,452,000,000,000,000,000. (With 15 zeros.) And this is only for the “shell”, meaning you’d have to spend another frightening sum to make it into a functional weapon. So while we seem no closer to building our own actual Death Star, it does remind us that, on top of everything else, the Empire was extremely well-financed.
Don't let Jerry Brown see this.
