Something to Know - 25 November

1.   Turkey Day is over.  So is Gray Thursday and Black Friday.   Still, the coconut wireless and the political junkies are still talking about the election results, and what the Republicans need to do to get back in the game.  Here's something else that is starting to catch attention  -  in the Deep South, and the populated coastal cities, the Democrats did better this time around than since the days of Jimmy Carter.   The total power hold that the GOP had before is slipping, and that is another concern for the GOP, and I am not sure they know how to deal with that, as well:

2.  At what point is the the long term forecast take hold, and we begin preparing.  For example, there is a lot of speculation that the rising tides will overtake New York City, in 50, 100, or 200 years.  When do those affected start planning for it.   Maybe they are not born yet, so it does not affect us, and does not matter:  

3.  The time has now come for the crazy old senator from Arizona to just shut up and give up on his war on Susan Rice.  The more we/I read about McCain's ill-founded vendetta against her, the more I think he needs to leave the US Senate for lack of relevancy:,0,4277295,print.story
