Let’s hear it for Buddy!

The Kuntz family was away from their Darrington, Washington home watching a ball game when the deadly mudslide destroyed it.

My Cousin Ray Sixkiller was watching Randy Mastro, the lawyer from Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher LLP, explain how New Jersey Gov.

The Boston Globe reported that Channel 4 in the UK paid Holocaust denier David Irving just under $5,000 for a lock of Adolf Hitler’s hair, supposedly collected by Hitler’s personal barber deploying sticky tape on the soles of his shoes.

Cousin Ray pictured Sioux families digging though heirloom possessions for any George Armstrong Custer DNA.

Rachel Maddow reported that California Democrats have had veto-proof super-majorities in both legislative chambers since the last elections.
