If She Had A Hammer: Debbie Wasserman Shultz knows how to deal with evidence...

What is Debbie Wasserman Shultz Hiding?

This story is of course being ignored (or buried) my most of the media. It should be getting way more  attention. While we talk about Russians, the Democrats managed to open up its files and its members of congress classified records to hackers who are tied in the Pakistanis

And Debbie Wasserman Shultz seems actively involved in covering it up and obstructing justice. What is she hiding?

Will Minneapolis even prosecute Officer Mohammed Noor?

I get the feeling politicians in Minneapolis wish this case would go away...

Jack Dunphy makes the case that there is no justification for what Officer Noor did and he will be convicted. Given his police background, Jack Dunphy is not one to make that statement lightly, but that of course assumes there will be criminal trial.

In the politically correct circus that is Minneapolis politics, it would not surprise me at all if no prosecution is pursued against Noor. I hope I am wrong because this is a case that likely warrants criminal prosecution (and the only reason I qualify that is I don't have all the facts yet).

I suspect Mohammed Noor will no longer be a police officer when this is over. Unfortunately, it would also not surprise me if sizable severance package may be thrown in by the City of Minneapolis to encourage him to go without a legal fuss.

Update:  The decision whether to prosecute or not rests with Hennepin County, which includes the outer suburbs of Minneapolis. We wait and see what will happen.

I am not familiar with the underlying comic inspiration for this movie, but I was not impressed with the trailers for it. So I am not surprised by this movie not doing well. Still, never let a Rule 5 opportunity pass...

Oldschool Greyscale Treatment and Game of Thrones

Learning to be a maester is a messy dangerous business...

This was a well done scene from Stormborn: Season 7: Episode 2. Samwell Tarley's compassion for Jorah Mormont is evident (and given the danger of transmission of greyscale extremely dangerous to Sam). As far as debriding the damaged tissue, I have seen modern third degree burn treatment that is not much removed from that episode (and it is often done without anesthesia--or without it being very effective).  

Sam is careful to tell Jorah to be quiet. But given the Archmaester said to Jorah that he is being shipped off tomorrow, won't the rest of the Maesters find out that Sam is performing the forbidden treatment? Perhaps, however, there is there a less painful cure available?  

There seems to be more in store for Jorah than being shipped off to the ruins of Valaria to live with the Stonemen. Interesting cross comparison of Daenarys separately confronting Varys over his prior scheming against her (which of course Jorah was also involved with and which resulted in his exile from her company and ultimately contracting greyscale). 

What are Varys's true intentions (if you doubt his pledge of honest counsel to the Queen for the protection of the realm)?  In Daenarys conference at Dragonstone, there are several references of her avoiding being ruler of the ashes, which is a reference back to Varys's opinion of Littlefinger and Cersei's burning down of the Great Sept in Kings Landing.
