A short take on today’s news

BY JOE GENCO

–There’s a whole bunch of tit-for-tat going on between the US and Russia. We probably won’t know what it means until Putin’s chosen President takes office for the US. http://www.cnn.com/…/russia-us-obama-putin-trump…/index.html

–Alan Bedenko gives what seems like a fair reporting of the Buffalo School Board’s attempted removal of Carl Paladino. http://www.dailypublic.com/…/school-board-votes-6-2-seek-pa…

Jim Heaney from Investigative Post illustrates that despite the fact Carl Paladino has shown he is an in ass multiple ways over the years, his First Amendment rights trump any removal on charges we don’t like his words. http://www.investigativepost.org/2016/12/29/6130/

–Speaking of Paladino, I saw a billboard visible on the outbound 33 and reading “Carl Paladino, not suitable for children, remove him, demand better for Buffalo” with a phone number to call.

–Flour might finally give a legitimate reason not to eat raw cookie dough. I am going to keep doing it anyway.

–Interesting reading the Forbes list of rich people under the age of 40. Most are involved in tech or sharing businesses. Jessica Alba and Beyonce are the only females on the list. http://www.forbes.com/…/americas-richest-entrepreneurs-un…/…

–Gee, I think we found one of the bad Mexicans President-elect Trump thinks he can keep out of the United States. This character, accused of raping a girl on a Greyhound bus, has voluntarily left 10 times and been deported 9 times. Do you think a wall would keep him out? http://cjonline.com/…/mexican-man-charged-rape-kansas-had-1…

–I don’t know if they are still protesting, but the Standing Rock Sioux asked for a disaster declaration after a bad snowstorm and asked the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs for help. Can we rename that agency yet? http://bismarcktribune.com/…/article_b140c170-4128-5d17-af0…

–Boyd Curiosity: No law compels members of Congress to attend House or Senate sessions all of the time, part of the time or even any of the time.

–Apparently, that deal for Cabela’s to sell out to Bass Pro isn’t so smooth after all. Several hang-ups are slowing things down. Too bad that didn’t happen to Met Life. http://journalstar.com/…/article_5c39449a-ba96-58da-aff0-4c…

–I enjoyed the commentators on William Carrier’s first NHL fight. Has anyone else noticed it seems lately for the Sabres there is at least one brawl per night? http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/135649

–Justin Bailey is up for the Sabres. http://www.buffalohockeybeat.com/sabres-prospect-justin-ba…/

–Ronda Rousey got back in the ring last night but she didn’t put up much of a fight, suffering a 1st Round TKO at the hands of Amanda Nunes. http://www.mmafighting.com/…/ronda-rousey-vs-amanda-nunes-f…
