Summer is here and for those who enjoy good food and like to travel, there is hope. In recent years Israeli food and wine have garnered international prestige.

If anybody messes with my copy of the Atlantic Monthly’s June 2016 issue, I’m going to give him or her a knuckle sandwich. Starting on page 46 the Atlantic has an expose on DNA testing and the phony baloney results. If you remember, a while back I wrote about the FBI lab and the incorrect results. If you are innocent, you’d better spend the money and get a second opinion on the DNA, or even a third.

As sure as God made little green apples, the Southern California Edison Company is asking the State of California for a revenue increase of $366 million. It goes up just about as fast as produce at Ralph’s market.

What are these people thinking of these days? Judicial Watch sent us a request for money so they could pursue a lawsuit by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton into allegations of corruption, deceit and concealment. What a bunch of loose cannons.
