You're not going to impress me by reminding me of public school teachers.

That’s fair.

You don’t impress me with your zero credentials either

Credentials are toilet paper.

A recurring feature of news media in the UK is that the banal events of the royal family are splashed across the headlines, as if to lift the hearts of a loyal nation. Occasionally it's a scandal, but more often it's some sycophantic article full of "ma'am"s or pics galore of the youngest royals: their first day at school, etc.

Yesterday, almost every newspaper's front page carried the same photo of Harry & Megan, with a short article cooing over their latest announcement. Sample headlines: "MEGnificent!" "Valentine's Day Joy: Baby No.2 On The Way!"

Oddly enough, it was only Britain's worst newspaper, The Daily Star, that raised a dissenting voice:-



Not sure what it proves, but Psy-Fi's photo makes an interesting contrast, with a less-publicised pregnancy:

Although no reputable lawyer wants Trump as a client, the legal profession as a whole must love the way he generates so much business for them.

After all those Stop The Steal lawsuits went nowhere, the quantity of lawsuits against the main protagonists of that discredited campaign continues to grow: Guilliani & that lady channeling the ghost of Hugo Chavez are being sued, and here's another flurry of litigation:-

GOP donor who donated millions for voter fraud investigation wants money back

A Republican donor who gave $2.5 million for a voter fraud investigation by a conservative nonprofit has come to regret his decision and doubt the conspiracy theories that fueled the effort.

Court records and interviews conducted by the Post show donor Fred Eshelman has worked to get his millions back from True the Vote, a Texas-based group that vowed to expose voter fraud.

Buoyed by Eshelman's financial backing, the organization had launched a series of lawsuits and sought to produce whistleblower accounts of voter fraud across the country, the Post said. But much like the Trump campaign's sprawling legal efforts to overturn President Joe Biden's win, the operation failed to gain traction.
True the Vote's election lawsuits were ultimately abandoned, the newspaper reported, prompting Eshelman to demand that his money be returned. After the organization offered to return just $1 million, Eshelman launched two lawsuits.
Both lawsuits alleged that True the Vote had not spent his donations as it claimed it would.
The organization has pushed back on that claim in court documents reviewed by the newspaper, asserting that Eshelman's money was used properly. A lawyer for the group, James Bopp, also told the Post that Eshelman had not placed any conditions on his donation.
To this point, Eshelman hasn't gotten any of his money back, the Post reported, citing court documents.
