Appointing a police commissioner after a nearly decade-long absence is as quaint a notion as bringing back the night watchman to blow out the street lamps.
  • Robert Bartley, the late editorial page editor of The Wall Street Journal, was a free trade zealot who for decades championed a five-word amendment to the Constitution: “There shall be open borders.”
  • There’s already a trade war, and it’s being waged by Beijing.
  • There’s an old story about the man who posted a classified ad in the newspaper about his missing dog: “LOST: Male dog, has one eye, mangled left ear, paralyzed hind leg, has been neutered. Answers to the name Lucky.”
  • Philadelphia boxing team won over the Yazoo City team by a score of 7 1/2 to 3 1/2 in a series at school. A list of winners in each bout follows: Joe Stringer, Yazoo City, won a decision over Buddy DeWeese; Gleen Banks vs. G. Crawford, Yazoo City, draw; Billy Dees vs. C. Crawford, Yazoo City, Dees won by a technical knock-out in the second round; Tom Blount vs. Joe Stringer, draw.
  • And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.                                                                                                                 — Romans 8:28 ESV
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 9:1-12
    We look this week at the 5th and 6th plagues against Egypt,  the plague of livestock and the plague of boils. The Lord could have rescued Israel from Egypt another way. He could have destroyed Egypt immediately, and Israel just walked out. The Lord chose the way of plagues to teach us about his nature and other lessons. Each plague is instructive, and collectively they are a solemn, clear statement of God’s sovereignty and man’s sinfulness.
  • From Lincoln to William McKinley to Theodore Roosevelt, and from Warren Harding through Calvin Coolidge, the Republican Party erected the most awesome manufacturing machine the world had ever seen.
  • LOWRY/The left’s Farrakhan problem
    “Time’s up,” the slogan of the Hollywood anti-harassment movement, has a very different meaning for Louis Farrakhan.
  • The times, they are a terror. Robert Mueller needs suspects in his pursuit of collaborators with the Russians, so he’s recycling suspects he had already indicted once. Patriots in Seattle, terrified that Stonewall Jackson and Jeb Stuart, if not Marse Robert himself, have been raiding on Puget Sound, and settled on the flag of Norway as an object of contempt when the familiar Confederate battle flag was not available.
  • Mr. W. H. Sanford, Jr. member of the local law firm of Richardson and Sanford, formally announces his candidacy or re-election to the office of Mayor of Philadelphia.
