The [Wednesday] Papers

1. Well, He's In The Right Administration.

"Over several months, in speaking with 21 people who know [Wilbur] Ross, Forbes uncovered a pattern: Many of those who worked directly with him claim that Ross wrongly siphoned or outright stole a few million here and a few million there, huge amounts for most but not necessarily for the commerce secretary. At least if you consider them individually. But all told, these allegations - which sparked lawsuits, reimbursements and an SEC fine - come to more than $120 million. If even half of the accusations are legitimate, the current United States secretary of commerce could rank among the biggest grifters in American history."

As someone wrote in a tweet I can no longer find, how far down the line of presidential succession would we have to go in this administration before we got to someone who wasn't a grifter?

2. My New Hero.

You may have heard about how much ass Kathleen Turner kicks in her new Vulture interview. It's all true.

3. Booray!

Chicago Bulls Zach LaVine and Bobby Portis make brief, inconsequential appearances in this otherwise interesting article about the real reason two Washington Wizards brought guns to the locker room one day.

4. "If Alex Jones Screams On Google+, Will Anyone Hear Him?"

*

There was a moment when Facebook was vulnerable. Google tried to step up and failed miserably.

Now, being on Facebook is like being in the phone book. Well, when we had phone books.

Not to say its central existence is permanent; it's too far from cool for that. But it's here to stay for a long while.

*

As far as Alex Jones goes, it's so funny, in a sad and tragic way; some folks I know used to listen to him on the radio for pure entertainment. They never thought he'd actually be taken seriously by nearly half the country, including the president, who appeared on his show and said that "Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down."

5. This Is How Americans Reacted To President Nixon's Resignation.

Inside The Union Refund Lawsuits
"Sending unions into bankruptcy because they mistakenly trusted the Supreme Court when it stood by Abood in 2012 (and declined to overrule it again in 2014) would be more than a blow to middle-class workers; it would be a serious danger to the rule of law."
