Trump says, ‘you’re fired’

BY JOE GENCO

–President Trump rightly fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, an Obama holdover in place pending Jeff Sessions confirmation, because she used her office as a bully pulpit to criticize his immigration order. He was right to fire her. She was right to speak out. http://www.nationalreview.com/…/why-sally-yates-was-fired-i…

–No one should be surprised by President Trump’s actions so far because he hasn’t said or done anything he didn’t promise to do. That is rather the bottom line. http://www.cnn.com/…/donald-trump-this-is-still…/index.htmlD

–The Boy Scouts of America has announced it will begin admitting children to its program according to the gender listed on the application rather than a birth certificate. I see a parent violating the spirit of the ruling so their daughter can become an Eagle Scout. http://www.sfgate.com/…/Boy-Scouts-will-allow-transgender-c…

–Breitbart tries to help us rationalize the islamophobic executive order of President Trump. Ughhh. http://www.breitbart.com/…/trumps-immigration-pause-sober-…/

–I think I may have found someone Alan Bedenko disdains even more than Chris Collins or Donald Trump, David DiPietro. Check out this demolition job from the Daily Public. http://www.dailypublic.com/…/0131…/dear-assemblyman-dipietro

–Buffalo Rising facilitates a spirited discussion of the Scajaquada Expressway, which the NYS DOT is redesigning with a median and some bike paths. I say leave it as is, restore the speed limit to 40 mph and spend money on better public transportation and bike paths but then, what do I know? https://www.buffalorising.com/…/expressway-planned-for-del…/

–Technology is comings close to being able to bring extinct species back to life. What should be first? I vote for the Xerces butterfly, a small insect with blue wings that once lived in the San Francisco area. http://www.bbc.com/…/20170127-how-to-decide-which-extinct-s…

–This is exciting and fun. The Town of Tonawanda inventoried all its trees. For me, living among and appreciating trees has always been a quality of life issue. http://gis1.tonawanda.ny.us/port…/…/webappviewer/index.html…

–Boyd Curiosity: Somewhere in Pennsylvania rests a tombstone enscribed: “Here lies the body of John Blake. Stepped on the gas instead of the brake.”

–Canadians, with nothing to do on a cold winter day other than drink, have invented a new game, Corkicurl. Hey, why not? http://www.cbc.ca/…/m…/crokicurl-winnipeg-kick-off-1.3956876

–The Shorty Awards, honorable named after Joe and Sally’s 5 sons, have nominated Hunter Pence for his social media presence in the sports category. Please vote for the oh-so-quirky outfielder. http://shortyawards.com/9th/hunterpence

–Digging into the Top College Football Recruits from 2007 with a “Where are They Now Approach.” I think it was Tom Maroney who who showed in 10 minutes of a high school open house how random the destiny of his honor students was. College football recruits are no different. http://www.washingtonpost.com/…/…/01/29/following-the-signs/

–Lorenzo Alexander explains how, at 33, coming off a foot injury from which recovery took more than a year, the sixth time is the charm. http://www.theplayerstribune.com/lorenzo-alexander-bills-p…/

–If the Sabres win 60% of available points over the remaining games they can make the playoff. Join me in my delusion cheering our boys down the stretch. http://www.buffalohockeybeat.com/sabres-emerge-break-focus…/
