Vive la France.

Maybe it’s time to retire all those French surrender jokes.  Paris tonight.

paris

For Paris. For all who have lost loved ones, and for so many sadly, now living in the stars tonight. “Quand tu regarderas le ciel, la nuit, puisque j’habiterai dans l’une d’elles, puisque je rirai dans l’une d’elles, alors ce sera pour toi comme si riaient toutes les étoiles. (Le Petit Prince)

(translation from the English version –  “You alone will have stars as no one else has them… In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..”)

While in general I don’t like to think about the concept of hell, nights like tonight in Paris make me really hope there is one, and that those responsible for the attacks are on the REAL express bus to it.

The first ‪#‎cantfixstupid‬ after a terrible night in Paris goes to Rob Lowe, who tweeted “Oh, NOW France closes its borders.” You’d think he’d have learned something on West Wing.
And we don’t know yet about these horrible killers. But Jihadi John was a BRITISH citizen.

And then there’s Newt Gingrich: “Imagine a theater with 10 or 15 citizens with concealed carry permits. We live in an age when evil men have to be killed by good people.” Right, with over 1,000 people, many of them who now doubt had been drinking, none of them really prepared, in a darkened theater……‪#‎cantfixstupid‬

Ben Carson of course has a response to Paris figured out, he would be working with our allies using “economic resources, covert resources… military resources… things-that-they-don’t-know-about resources… not to contain them, but to eliminate them, before they eliminate us,”

Right, because Carson is an expert on things he doesn’t know about.

On a positive note on a rough day – A judge has at least temporarily reversed his decision to take a Utah baby who had been ordered taken from her lesbian foster parents. This after efforts by the state’s child welfare agency and considerable public outrage. Public outrage on behalf of a gay couple?! . In Utah?!. ‪#‎progress‬ ‪#‎Babysteps‬

Donald Trump, asked why Hillary Clinton appeals to voters, commented “She has a new hairdo. ….it was massive. Her hair became massive,” .
The Donald better be careful, forget alienating voters, he might insult that furry thing that lives on his head.

A new study found that mosquitoes are repelled by Victoria’s Secret Bombshell perfume. And put enough perfume on you can repel unwanted friends, relatives, coworkers too.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says Dez Bryant should have handled Thursday’s tirade directed at the media differently. but “I believe that 100 percent of our guys do things the right way about 98 percent of the time.” Did they legalize marijuana in Dallas and not tell us?.

DraftKings and FanDuel filed lawsuits to try to stop New York from banning the daily fantasy games. Forget the NFL, can we bet on what side will win.

Apparently some in the GOP are trying to draft Romney to run in 2016. (he’s still saying no.)
Isn’t this kind of like being on the dating market, not finding anyone great, and then looking nostalgically back at your ex – forgetting of course why you didn’t want to be with them in the first place.

At times like this we do need some completely ridiculous moments of levity.   So if you’re reading this and it’s not too late, in college football 0-9 Kansas is playing #15 TCU Saturday.
