Dorothy's good friend, Florence McCanless Pritchett Smith,

also known as 'Mrs. Earl Smith', died of a cerebral hemorrhage the next day.

"Florence continued working as a journalist. She also became a television personality and appeared on programmes such as What's My Line? It was during this time she became friendly with the journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. In 1965 Dorothy Kilgallen managed to obtain a private interview with Jack Ruby. She told friends that she had information that would "break the case wide open". Aware of what had happened to Bill Hunter and Jim Koethe, Kilgallen handed her interview notes to Florence Smith. She told friends that she had obtained information that Ruby and J. D. Tippit were friends and that David Ferrie was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. On 8th November, 1965, Dorothy Kilgallen, was found dead in her New York apartment. She was fully dressed and sitting upright in her bed. The police reported that she had died from taking a cocktail of alcohol and barbiturates. The notes of her interview with Jack Ruby and the article she was writing on the case had disappeared. Florence Smith, died the next day of a cerebral hemorrhage. Her son, Earl Smith III, said that she had been suffering from leukemia."

He also oozes stupidity and insanity.

Also, literal feces, when his diaper gives out.

Funny, he's the chair of the repug study committee, proposing trillions in cuts from SS, Medicare, Medicaid.

That's surprising because of all the screams and cries of 'liar' the repugs hurled at Prez Biden when he pointed that out to them, at the SOTU.

Everything He Touches Turns To tRump.

tRump's entire legal strategy, in a nutshell:

He says he thinks he did everything completely legally.

He'd never lie, not about something like that.

Also, ignorance of the law is a completely valid legal defense.

Rump's hero, Putin, wants his political opponents in prison.

And Rump thinks Putin's powerful, wonderful, and super strong because of it.

Repug meeting goes off the rails as ex-candidate pulls gun.

A meeting went off the rails after Eric Casteel, a former GOP Allegheny County Council candidate, reportedly pulled out a gun and threatened three members of the Plum Borough Republican Committee (PBRC) in Pennsylvania on Thursday night.

Casteel, who ran for a seat on the council in 2021, began yelling at some point during the meeting, which was held at the Plum Community Center and then walked out saying that he would come back, according to the criminal complaint cited by TribLIVE on Friday.

Members of the committee told police that Casteel, 62, walked out of the meeting upset, however no details were provided about whether or not he argued with his fellow Republicans before pulling out the gun. Three committee members followed him out and noticed what appeared to be a gun in his waistband, CBS News reported. They told police that Casteel allegedly followed them with the gun when they turned around and allegedly pointed it at them, threatening to shoot. But, he left after members said they would call the police.

On edit, from Betty Bowers:

If Republicans think thoughts and prayers are the answer to stopping mass shootings, not laws, why do they think laws, not thoughts and prayers, are the answer to stopping abortions?
