Dave Pell: “We need a new model for dealing with a full on criminal in the White House. The Founders never imagined a crook like this in the office or a populace stupid enough to look at this pile of garbage and see a president.” medium.com

Mike Pence says criticism of wife’s job at anti-LGBTQ school ‘deeply offensive’

“Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday addressed news coverage and criticism regarding his wife’s decision to return to teaching at a Virginia elementary school that explicitly bars LGBTQ employees and students.

“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while, we’re used to the criticism,” Pence said in an interview with EWTN, a cable network that offers “news from a Catholic perspective.” But, he added, “to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive to us.””

The Bundle strikes back: How streaming caught up to cable TV prices

Cord-cutting was supposed to save money, but streaming media is getting more expensive and confusing. Consumers have to choose between Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc., with Apple, Comcast and Disney all expected to launch services. So now traditional TV bundles are looking more attractive. www.nbcnews.com

Related: A big part of Netflix and Amazon Video’s appeal is that they’re simple. With Netflix, you pay one price for all-you-can-watch, the options are simple and few. With Amazon, you pay one price for all-you-can-watch, which includes package deliveries, and you pay a la carte for programming not included in the bundle.

By contrast, our cable company, Cox, has a million different plans and none of them make sense.

I do not want to work this hard to watch TV. I just want to watch the TV news with dinner and 45 minutes to an hour or so before bedtime.
