Such news today: Our Congress will be cutting out as many environmental protections as possible, clearing the way for oil refineries to move to the Coast. I can already see polluted air and water — and oil-covered birds, dolphins and fish in our future. How will our seafood and tourist industries survive — or our quality of life?
No see ’em?
Trump has cut the budget to NOAA that gives us satellite data on hurricanes that pose threats to our Coast. Job losses and crucial information we on the Coast depend on. Is this Trump’s way of getting rid of data on climate change? Why? If there is no data, then, it doesn’t exist?
I’m quite sure California wouldn’t be upset if it were walled off from Mississippi as the writer suggested.
What does the right need with journalists and editors? They have the National Enquirer, Breitbart, the blogosphere and radio. Oh, let’s not forget Fauxx news.

Who has the authority on the road at the Port of Gulfport? There is a major hole on the west side of the east road going into the port.
While under Obama, Dow goes from 6,600 to 19,800 points and Republicans say, “Obama did nothing.” Under Trump, Dow goes up 1,200 points and Republicans say, “Oh my God, Trump has saved America.”

I note President Trump, unlike most other recent presidents, does not have a dog. Perhaps if he had a dog to keep him company during the late-night and early-morning hours, particularly one trained to bite him if he attempted to tweet, that would be a useful addition to his staff, and a great benefit to the country. I am sure the ASPCA would be happy to refer suitable candidates, and probably even vet them.
