4:46 I had to chuckle over how different a cat under a wet towel would look. This dog is all "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!" A cat would be all "Enjoy what little is left of your pathetic life, human."

DK - If only he could see what this "God" who talks to him in the middle of the night looks like. He'd learn this "God" only speaks in darkness in order to hide the horns, the forked tail, and the "What a sucker!" facial expression. BTW, I like SemDem. Solid facts.

TPM - I doubt Kim said that, or anything like it. That is pure Trumpspeak.

C&L - While property insurance covers some kinds of water damage, flooding is not one of them. Period. The only entity that covers flood is the U. S> Government. (Some companies are authorized to sell government flood insurance, but they do not underwrite it themselves, the government does.) Flood insurance is also a lot less insurance for a lot more money than most companie provide for other types of loss, because most people don't carry it, so the premium pool is not sufficient to cover losses in full or close to full. I do hope the companies win on this one, for the sake not of the companies, but for the sake of all us ordinary people who do pay our premiums for decent insurance. A loss could destroy the insurance industry as we know it. As far as being an "Act of God," some act-of-God losses are covered, like the Paradise fire. But flooding is in a category by itself. I hope someone in the media will follow this case through the courts, because I surely see the potential for there to be some extremely amusing testimony.

Cartoon - Oh, yes. And a wretched Memorial Day to all Republicans. The National Memorial Day Concert will be televised tonight on PBS at 7:00 p.m. and repeated at 8:30 p.m. It's put on by the same people who also do the Fourth of July Concert, or have for 30 years and will again if Dolt 45 doesn't destroy it this year.

read at PP, catching up on my points, but sadly the caption on the picture is too accurate

I'm with you on the cartoon, David! And what about a widow (or widower) and any kids?
