I'd like to hope so, but just in case, I'll type as quietly as I can while I'm doing this.
Now, I know that I said I wasn't going to talk about Trump anymore, but I have to mention the ongoing problems that are cropping up at his rallies.
First, there's been a lot of hostility from the audiences on both sides. So many protesters have shown up at these dog-and-pony shows that the police have had to get involved, and pepper spray has been liberally (no pun intended) and enthusiastically deployed. However, the protesters have, as far as I have seen, remained non-violent.
Trump is blaming Sanders supporters for the violence at his rally because you can't truly be Hitler until you blame a Jew for your problems.— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) March 13, 2016
On the other side, Trump's supporters have been extremely hostile toward those protesters. One guy was arrested for straight-up cold-cocking a man who was peacefully leaving the rally. And then he was caught on video saying something like, "Next time, we may have to kill him..."

Meanwhile, while actively avoiding all this political stuff, I've been checking out other stuff. F'rinstance, I absolutely recommend that you read my friend Abby's story about a particular St. Patrick's Day where she went to extremes in the name of justice. Sort of.
Gather 'round, comrades. I'm gonna tell you about the St. Patrick's Day I bit a girl's phone in half. https://t.co/EqAPKghGak— Abby Normal (@MrsTomServo) March 18, 2016
She's small, but terrifying! Plus she plays the accordion! Be afraid...be very afraid...

And there you have it!
Now, before we go to this week's video clip, I want to wish everybody a Happy Zombie Jesus Day next weekend. Up until recently, I was totally unaware of what the Easter Bunny had to do with Jesus supposedly being resurrected. Then Jake explained it to me. It turns out that the rabbit is associated with a pagan goddess name Eostre. I was so shocked, I did a doubletake.

Now get out of here, and don't eat too much Easter candy.
