The  Editor:   Who is in charge of the social media companies like, Facebook, Google,  WIFI,  and all cable, LL ?

No Where Cat:  No one is in charge.  Congress has ignored anti-trust and monopoly laws.  They get too much campaign money from the companies they are supposed to regulate.

Here is one reason things are bad.  The government’s  UNLIMITED PLAN  is what Verizon says it is.  The government should open competition to all cable and wifi companies.  Maybe we should elect Bernie and they all will be free.

Trump is right about the  ” media ” censoring conservative views and links.  These chickens are going to come home to roost.

Here is another creep that needs to be reigned in.  The richest man in the world doesn’t want agriculture workers to make a living wage.  Tax Amazon more and give it to agriculture workers,  $ 20.00 an hour adjusted for inflation.

THE SPHINX—MISS AMERICA SPECIAL

The Editor:   Is this like an old ” Bulldog Edition ”  in days gone by in the newspaper business, LL ?

Miss Cumberland Cat:  It sure is, just a short piece on important stuff.   The Miss America Pageant has done away with swim suits, and raised the age limit to twenty-five ( 25 ).   They don’t want the young ladies to be judged on appearance anymore.  Our loyal readers and lookers can check it out tonight.

Let’s see if they get political.   Here is what they should wear instead of swim suits.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

M1: The Crab Nebula from Hubble
Image Credit: NASA, ESA, Hubble, J. Hester, A. Loll (ASU)

Explanation: This is the mess that is left when a star explodes. The Crab Nebula, the result of a supernova seen in 1054 AD, is filled with mysterious filaments. The filaments are not only tremendously complex, but appear to have less mass than expelled in the original supernova and a higher speed than expected from a free explosion. The featured image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, is presented in three colors chosen for scientific interest. The Crab Nebula spans about 10 light-years. In the nebula‘s very center lies a pulsar: a neutron star as massive as the Sun but with only the size of a small town. The Crab Pulsar rotates about 30 times each second.
