Major news outlets devoted dramatically less coverage to former President Donald Trump describing his political enemies as “vermin” earlier this month than they provided then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 “basket of deplorables” remark in the week following those respective comments.
Good grief, the summer crowd has fled south, mail volume should be lower. Also, Amazon needs to hire a couple local contractors to pick up their slack.

Argentina’s libertarian president-elect Javier Milei causes a stir days before his inauguration, filling a top legal post with a former justice minister forced to resign in the 1990s over allegations of antisemitism.
Rodolfo Barra, 75, was named Friday as the attorney general of the treasury, responsible for counseling and representing the state in legal matters.
Barra was a judge of the Supreme Court and held several government posts in the 1990s, including that of justice minister from 1994 to 1996 under leftist president Carlos Menem. He was forced to resign from that post over the public outcry that ensued after a photo of him as a teenager, with his arm outstretched in a Nazi-style salute, was splashed across newspapers nationwide.
Several civic groups and opposition politicians are protesting against Barra’s appointment and urging Milei to reconsider.
“If as a youth I was a Nazi, I am sorry,” Barra said in 1996. On Saturday, he told LN+ TV: “I was a teenager, a teenager lacking maturity, knowledge. Many at this teenage age do crazy things, and I did this madness.”
Milei spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier today, who thanked him for supporting the State of Israel and invited him to visit.

Many US businesses may be required to assist in government-directed surveillance – depending upon which of two reform bills before Congress is approved.
Under rules being considered, any telecom service provider or business with custodial access to telecom equipment – a hotel IT technician, an employee at a cafe with Wi-Fi, or a contractor responsible for installing home broadband router – could be compelled to enable electronic surveillance. And this would apply not only to those involved with data transit and data storage.
