Derailed

What’s a 4-letter word for national embarrassment and disgrace? — I was going to write about the whole executive privilege nonsense, but then I read about this: Mom Blames Great Store Sale for Leaving Child in Hot Car

Politano told police she intended to run into the store for a few minutes to buy some meat for dinner, but said there were too many specials to pass up.

When I was a kid, my mother knew it was a lie for her to say we were going on a quick shopping trip, but at least she had the decency to drag me into the store with her.* Sheesh!

* where I would promptly turn into a dead-weight loudspeaker, “I’m bored. I wanna go home. Are you done yet?”

    I dunno what’s worse: that story, the fact that she’s 63 and has an 11 month-old daughter, or that the whole shebang was reported by Fox News (and she wasn’t a leprous illegal immigrant!)
