Due to the continuing vandalism of El Presidente's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (no, I don't know how it got there), some kind volunteers have appeared to offer security.....

Over at Vox, Kate "McMansion Hell" Wagner rips into Betsy DeVos' "summer home"

"I donít know how much this house cost, but according to the topical website PriceyPads.com, the house has three bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, three kitchens, eight dishwashers, 13 porches, and an elevator. Something about that ratio of bedrooms to dishwashers seems off to me, but what would I, a mere wretch, too dumb and poor to avoid being exploited by the predatory cost of higher education, know?"

"Gently I stir a white feather fan,
With open shirt sitting in a green wood.
I take off my cap and hang it on a jutting stone;
A wind from the pine-tree trickles on my bare head."

Li Po, Summer in the Mountains

This is true.
