At first, I was annoyed at folks "both sides" arguments about Ukraine and Russia. Then I got angry. Now, I am sad. Putin is literally willing to kill all of us because he can't let go of the USSR. And all many folks wanna say, "No war with Russia." I really despise these people.
Lot of people deserve a lot of snark over this, but in all seriousness, Democrats should launch an investigation, wholly separate from 1/6, to get to the bottom of what Trump sought to conceal by destroying documents.

We binged the new Reacher series this weekend and it delivered on what was promised, which was a large slab of human beef repeatedly punching an entire corrupt town in the face, ostensibly for justice. I liked the Tom Cruise Reacher just fine, but this version is more on point.
