Attorney General Cat:  She would certainly get a fair trial.   We would get her emails from NSA or Edward Snowden and try her by a group of her peers, people familiar with the IRS, maybe taxpayers audited by them.

She would lose her attitude and hubris.

The Editor:  Who would be her judge ?

AGC:   Amigo, he is very fair, especially in public trust transgressions.   Here is a short video about justice.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Peculiar Elliptical Galaxy Centaurus A
Image Credit & Copyright: Roberto Colombari

Explanation: What’s happened to the center of this galaxy? Unusual and dramatic dust lanes run across the center of elliptical galaxy Centaurus A. These dust lanes are so thick they almost completely obscure the galaxy’s center in visible light. This is particularly unusual as Cen A‘s red stars and round shape are characteristic of a giant elliptical galaxy, a galaxy type usually low in dark dust. Cen A, also known as NGC 5128, is also unusual compared to an average elliptical galaxy because it contains a higher proportion of young blue stars and is a very strong source of radio emission. Evidence indicates that Cen A is likely the result of the collision of two normal galaxies. During the collision, many young stars were formed, but details of the creation of Cen A’s unusual dust belts are still being researched. Cen A lies only 13 million light years away, making it the closest active galaxy. Cen A, pictured above, spans 60,000 light years and can be seen with binoculars toward the constellation of Centaurus.

The Editor:  Is this another fable, like the ant and grasshopper, Lois ?

Acorn Cat:   No, this is about how what appear to be simple/small matters get out of control.   Here is a person in a hurry-he/she/them/and children got to the other side pretty quickly.

Here is a bird enjoying a ball game, it’s a sunny, cool, pleasant day.

The Editor:   Those are pretty sad/tragic stories, could something like that have worldwide consequences?

Sarajevo Cat:   It sure could/can here is an example, 100 years old this week.

The Editor:   What is your moral, SC ?

Consequence Cat:  Try to be aware of things, think ahead if possible.   For example, don’t stop at night to get fuel.
