Curmudgeon’s Corner: Live from Seattle

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam, Ivan, Jenn, and Brandy meet in person after the Seattle meetup to discuss how people suck, including the people in the college admissions scandal, and the people running for President, and many others. Basically, people suck. Plus a little on travel, and the Seattle meetup itself. And a movie review. Even a bit on circumcision​. A packed show. If you missed the meetup, listening to the show is the next best thing.

  • 22:52:38 A year ago I agreed that it would be foolish to start anything impeachment related unless there was a good chance of conviction in the Senate. I am over that. Given what we already know, let alone if there is more, it is a moral duty to pursue it aggressively. Even if it fails.
