And if you subtract the posts in the Trump thread from that count?
The number goes up.

Seems like it already did... and it's a pity, because I'd rather have Todd over WaPo any time of the day --- at least his nonsense is gratis and few and far between.  ;D

Reading this title the first time today, gave me an ominous feeling in the pit of my stomach. Glad to see it appears we will have a happy ending, thanks to Rob!

It's the Washington Post. Seems like in Romania it doesn't carry the journalistic weight it does over here. Apparently, smoking out fascists wherever they grow isn't worthwhile these days.  ::)

Glad to hear you’re okay, Rob. I haven’t been participating much lately, and it’s entirely due to work and personal life. I hope to return to greater activity here soon.

We've had "coldest night of the year" 3 times in less than a week. Last night  it went down to -7.3C (just under 19F). For us, that is nippy!

Rob is fine. That's all I care for, honestly. I am relieved.
