Really hoped we would hold on to him. Oh well. Now he'll hit 5 homers against us later this season. The Reds have claimed infielder Robel García off waivers from the Cubs, according to Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. García had been designated for assignment by the Cubs on Thursday. He has been optioned a...

Trump down to 40.1% average approval rating in my obsessive watch on 538.

Court rules that the prosecutor can get the returns. Of course, that doesn't mean that they are made public at all. So, yay! But not as much fun as people were hoping for. It's important to get the returns because forensic accountants can go over them and see if there is information of criminal wro...

And the court rules against congress getting access to the taxes. Which is the one that would have impacted the election far more significantly.

Re: Politics & Current Events

This may be a stupid question but, can one glean tax evasion from the returns? Not from the tax returns alone unless the accountant is completely inept. You have to have the external information that conflicts with the return to prove evasion. It's more likely that Trump's returns wouldn't be any s...

Looking at twitter this morning, I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed if we get access to Trump's tax returns.

Large rise in fatalities today from a week ago, but that could just be a bigger backlog of reporting due to the holiday weekend. It will be very interesting to see what happens tomorrow.
