A Play in Two Acts

Today, we have two related items.... in the first, Democratic Representative Zoe Lofgren asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai why a Google image search for the term "idio" resulted in pictures of Donald Trump:

Yours crankily,

Every time I read or hear the word albatross, I don't think of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, I think if this skit from Monty Python:


As for Mike Pence, I read a tweet somewhere that Madame Tussauds need not put a wax dummy up for display, just have Mike show up and just stand there.
