Who needs a Supreme Court ruling in your favor when you can have a presidential pardon instead?

Trump recently entered the pardon candy store. Give him a few weeks and he’ll tire of it.

Measles epidemic in France thanks to anti-vax morons

Quote
A 26-year-old patient has died in France from the measles, the second fatality in a matter of months as an epidemic of the disease sweeps the country and health chiefs warn of the need to be immunised.
French health authorities revealed on Wednesday that a 26-year-old patient had died from the disease, although details of the sex of the victim and the region where they lived have not been revealed.

Health chiefs from French health authority Santé Publique France said the patient's immune system was too weak to be given a vaccine and that they were probably contaminated by someone close to them who had not been vaccinated.

I found this strange paragraph in today's Detroit News in an article about rising sales of the U.S. flag:

 "After 9/11, a rise in patriotic spirit among Americans wiped (flag seller) (Tim) Mahoney 's shelves clean.  He had difficulty ordering stock.  Some people bought French flags because they were red, white and blue."
