A short take on today’s news


–Alec Baldwin is an ass. That’s why he’s so good at impersonating Trump. Here’s a really funny photo. Baldwin had a hat made with “Make America Great Again” written in Cyrillic. http://www.rawstory.com/…/trump-impersonator-alec-baldwin…/…

–A columnist lays out his views of Trump’s first 100 days in this column. It seems to be a pretty straightforward honest and even likely assessment. http://www.startribune.com/a-realist-s-guide-to-trump-s-…/…/

–And then there’s the matter of Planned Parenthood, squarely in the sights of Republican leaders and Trumps inner circle, even if the President elect has been much more moderate in his words toward the organization and the millions of women it helps. http://www.npr.org/…/heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-…

–Working out with a young married professional, who doesn’t yet have children, she mentioned house shopping and considering closeness to the Hurt Locker and closeness to her business as concerns more primary than school system. Jeffrey Wass has that effect on people. You should look him up and give it a shot. http://thehurtlockerllc.com/

–Here are details on the coming restoration of the Parkside Candy shop, as presented by Buffalo Rising. https://www.buffalorising.com/…/renovations-begin-at-parks…/

–Difficult to find current statistics, but in the grand scheme of who-makes-the-most cars in North America, can you guess the winner, at least from 2014? Would you believe Nissan? It is hard to know where they got their numbers. Lauren Fix, can you do better? http://dailykanban.com/…/makes-cars-north-america-largest-…/

–Volkswagen prosecution continues with the first executive headed to jail over my wonderful diesel Jetta, in, of all places, South Korea. http://www.forbes.com/…/first-volkswagen-manager-goes-to-…/…

–Speaking of my wonderful Jetta, I found her replacement: A 2014 Jetta GLI. 6-speed Standard transmission, premium sound and 12-year warranty against rust through. Oh and it might be a little . . .peppy. I won’t get it until later this month but at least that’s over.

–Ah yes, another take on the whack-the-car-salesman with a golf club incident from Florida. (Still not funny.) A different approach to the dealership scam. We all get those stupid promotions in the mail from places like the Basil Dealerships, where pressure is how they sell. http://www.heraldtribune.com/…/lyons-guys-lets-not-handle-t…

–As the mess that is Prince’s estate grinds toward settlement, it is a reminder there is no time like now to plan for the orderly transfer of your estate. I can help with that if you like. http://www.foxnews.com/…/asset-inventory-princes-estate-lis…

–There is nothing funny about mental illness. It is as disease, just like any other. http://faceingmentalillness.heraldtribune.com/…/profile-t…/…

–This from Neil McManus. The former elected official with actual experience running a government, using steroids and breeding his maid, has slammed Donald for commenting, via Twitter, on Celebrity Apprentice ratings. I love Arnold. http://dailykanban.com/…/makes-cars-north-america-largest-…/

–Why not a Sunday morning Tiny Desk concert from an 18-year-old English lad? Declan McKenna has incredible emotion in his voice. http://www.npr.org/…/50644…/declan-mckenna-tiny-desk-concert

–The Sabres pulled together a strong Third Period to win 4-3 after Jake McCabe destroyed Patrick Laine with a clean, open-ice check http://www.wkbw.com/…/5-observations-sabres-rallyknock-off-…

–In case you missed the end-of-the-game Sabres brawl, here it is. Oh and Chad Johnson won for Calgary last night. http://www.msgnetworks.com/…/sabres-jets-fight-past-the-bu…/

–Too bad about the Raiders.
