A short take on today’s news

BY JOE GENCO

–The 538 members of the Electoral College today affirm the election of President Donald Trump https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/125fa84a-c327-11e6-8422-ea…

–Trump supporters in Montana have begun targeting Jewish people. Not that they are anti-semitic fascists or anything. Oh wait, is that redundant? http://missoulian.com/…/article_3b95f7d3-d6f5-5d2d-831c-d2c…

–There are 7.4 million unemployed people in the US but 5.5 million job openings. Why the gap? Skills. That and automation is cheaper than training. http://www.forbes.com/…/how-the-commerce-department-is-fi…/…

–If you thought it was scummy when Congress refused to consider President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, check out what the North Carolina State Legislature did to neuter the incoming governor. Lechery has no bounds. http://www.chicagotribune.com/…/ct-north-carolina-special-s…

–The Catholic Church castrated its choir boys from 1579 until 1878. I looked that up before the 60 Minutes segment on the Pope’s choir. http://www.catholicbridge.com/…/castration_catholic_church.…

–Why does the musician pull a rabbit out of a hat rather than some other animal? A rabbit is quiet, and still. A different animal might mess things up.

–In parts of Pakistan, dancing remains punishable by death. You can’t even make this stuff up. https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/f2adbd5e-c13a-11e6-92e8-c0…

–Painful truths about the Bills from Monday Morning Quarterback. And gosh, the Cowboys quarterback situation feels like Rob Johnson/Doug Flutie. http://mmqb.si.com/…/nfl-week-15-rex-ryan-job-security-jets…#

–The Bills confirmed by their play: Tyrod and Rex are back. The only question remains who fixes the defense. That and Tim Graham is funny. His lede: “The game was hollow, and nobody will ever Google to find this quick recap. Bills fans might glance at this Sunday. Then my typing will be forgotten forever.” http://buffalonews.com/…/insta-graham-dont-read-bills-brow…/

–Oh and we need to see the Bully, Highway 64, spike more footballs. Two games left and the Bills are alive. https://twitter.com/buffalobills/status/810600150003515392
