rushdie-joseph-anton“He was a migrant. He was one of those who had ended up in a place that was not the place where he began. Migration tore up all the traditional roots of the self. The rooted self flourished in a place it knew well, among people who knew it well, following customs and traditions with which it and its community were familiar, and speaking its own language among others who did the same. Of these four roots, place, community, culture and language, he had lost three.” “

–Salman Rushdie, from “Joseph Anton: A Memoir” (2012).

    Republican (Ron DeSantis) floats measure to kill Mueller probe after 6 months
    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/08/28/mueller-investigation-republicans-russia-242108

    Ron “Littlefinger” DeSantis shows us again why he should be one of crooked Trump’s co-defendants.

    Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe just commented on air that a couple of fruitcakes in Congress are trying to kill the Mueller probe. Scarborough owes fruitcakes an apology.
