QT: Jeb & The Job Creators


We Have Seen the Present, and It Does Not Work:
Officials in Paxton, Ill., have ordered heavy equipment to destroy the only sledding hill in the area because there is a risk of injury when children sled down hills.

···

News Headline: "White House reporters complain about lack of access."
News Headline: "Washington press corps closes its own dinner to cameras."
The stories seemed to go together, for some reason.

···

News Headline: "Wave of hate groups in U.S., experts say."
News Headline: "Study: Certain organisms can undergo reverse evolution."
These seemed to go together, too.

···

QT End of the World As We Know It Update:
Asteroid 2013 EC20 passed halfway between Earth and the moon on Saturday, two days after it was discovered.

···

News Headline: "NASA concerned with solar activity: 'Something unexpected is happening.'"
Science progresses.
At least now we understand when something unexpected is happening.
Whatever it is.

···

News Headline: "California school board member to serve time for pimping."
Does California have something against job creators?

···

Modern Education + the Criminal Mind =
A man robbing a night club in China's Yunnan Province concealed his identity by making sure to put a transparent bucket completely over his head.

···

News Item: ". . . The shark sightings have been in the news all week, but are not unusual. . . ."
Thus explaining why they've been in the news all week, notes P.B., a Bethesda, Md., reader.

···

News Headline: "Jeb Bush: Obama won election by 'dividing the country.'"
About time someone called Obama on this.
Divided it into a majority and a minority, if memory serves.

···

QT What Passes for Miracles These Days Update:
An image of Jesus has been found on the floor beneath a waxing table in a beauty salon in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

···

Today's (All Right, Tomorrow's) Birthdays: Jesse "Lone Cat" Fuller, 117; Tony "Two-Ton" Galento, 102; Sammy "Sammy Bull" Gravano, 68; Rich "Svengoolie" Koz, 61.

···

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language:
Economist Austan Goolsbee on the difficulties of training a nation's workforce:
"Let's not overly dreadfulize it, if that's a word. . . . "
It is now.
QT might have gone with "dreadfulate."
But that is just QT.
Steve Olle, a Washington D.C. reader, wants to remind us that we have started Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time, by the way.


QT appears Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. QT welcomes your comments. For more QT, visit the QT archives. QT is also on Facebook.
