Remember when

My Dad's obit (update) and a short story.

As I have had to go through a solid lifetime of accumulated papers, books, and stuff of my late father
I found out 2 things:
1) He had quit being a registered as republican about 12 years ago.
2) He not only voted for Obama and Hillary but was a financial supporter of Obama too.

Kessel, John
John Howard Kessel, 90, passed away on January 28, 2019. He was born on Oct. 13, 1928 in Dayton, Ohio to Arthur V. and Helen (Hopkins) Kessel. He is preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law the Rev. John and Jean Carson of Hillsboro, OH. He is survived by his wife, Margaret Sarah (Wagner) Kessel; his sons, Robert (Mona) and Thomas; grandchildren, Sarah, Ellen, and Jonathan (Bria); and great-granddaughter, Adalynn Rae. He attended Purdue University and OSU, where he received his B.A. degree in 1950. He was as an officer in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, seeing action on a destroyer minesweeper, The USS Carmick. He obtained a PhD in political science from Columbia University in 1958. He taught at Mt. Holyoke College, Amherst College, the University of Washington, and Allegheny College before joining The Ohio State University in 1970. He was a visiting professor at the University of California San Diego, University of Washington, and American University. He was a visiting scholar at the Brookings Institute, American Enterprise Institute, and the Republican National Committee. He served as editor of the American Journal of Political Science and president of the Midwest Political Science Association. His research was supported by National Science Foundation grants. An expert on the American presidency and presidential campaign politics, he authored scholarly books and numerous articles in leading political science journals. John had a lifelong love of learning, reading, keeping in touch with former students and colleagues, playing tennis, home gardening, travelling, and being with his family. He passed away peacefully in his own bedroom, with his best friend, the love of his life, Margaret at his side – winner! The family wishes to thank the people who helped in John's home care for their skills and kindness, and especially his nurse Laurie from Wesley Hospice for her grace, class, and good humor.

Columbus's Chief retires/ As a trailblazer, Chief Jacobs is the first openly gay, woman police chief

https://myfox28columbus.com/news/local/columbus-police-honors-retiring-chief-kim-jacobs-with-walkout-procession-friday

As a trailblazer, Chief Jacobs is the first openly gay, woman police chief in the division. She was also the first woman deputy chief and commander.

She joined CPD in 1979, and she first served as a patrol officer only a few years after Columbus began training women for that job.

Lieutenant Aimee Haley recognized the chief for paving the way.

"I've had the opportunity to be a police officer at CPD, not a female officer, just a police officer. Thank you for paving the way through the ranks for me and countless others," Haley said.

It must be really bad for Trump and company because he has gone twitter silent.

This might not be the end of Trump but the beginning of the end is clear to see.

Trump inaugural subpoena pertains to allegations of conspiracy against the U.S., false statements, mail &
wire fraud, money laundering, disclosure violations, & laws prohibiting contributions by foreign nations and
in the name of another person.

Today on Morning Ho MSNBC

Mika: Hillary did not have a message in 2016.

Joe: Barack Obama (without saying his name) did not know how Washington worked.



Joe: Hillary was not an attractive candidate.
(Funny she got more votes than anybody in history except for Barack Obama in 2008)

Bob Mueller is a kung fu ninja samurai warrior

He just used Trump/Russia's strengths against them.

Hacking, disinformation, the use of social media, and using right wing
media to spread lies ( Fox News) were their S.O.P. and Kung Fu Bobby
used his Vulcan mind meld to hoist them on their own petard.


And in the end Donald Trump & Mitch McConnell will be regarded the same as John Wilkes Booth





For those in the path of the cold blast .... Mandolin Wind



Coldest winter in almost 14 years
Buffalo died in the frozen snows.
