Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker

Yes, I've read the headlines of the reviews and according to my news feed - it's a stinker. A clunker. Another JJ Abrams mess of confusion. But damn it... I've been watching this crap and re-purchasing the re-edited crap for over 40 years now. From VHS to THX VHS, to re-mastered VHS, the DVD, the Re-edited Special DVD, the laser disks and now Disney+. Of course I'm going to go see it. And the Mouse knows it.

Pelosi Takes Impeachment Off The Table

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said, "Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it,” she told the Washington Post.

It looks like Mike Pence's order to will have to wait a little while longer.

Overheard Over Pakistan

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan plans an emergency parliamentary session and will meet the body in control of Islamabad's nuclear arsenal in response to India's first air strikes on Pakistan since 1971. 

The two nuclear-armed and unfriendly neighbors have fought three wars since partition in 1947, and the majority of them have been over Kashmir — a territory both India and Pakistan claim in full.

The air strike near Balakot was the deepest strike into Pakistan from India since the end of the last three wars. It was a town 50 kilometers into Pakistan from the Indian border. There are competing claims about the damage caused. One side said it was a smashing success, the other says they didn't hit the side of the barn. Either way, the region is dangerously close to a nuclear war.

Have a nice day.
