CNN — and half a dozen other sites with sources inside the White House — is reporting that Donald Trump is seriously mulling the idea of firing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, presumably so that the next guy in line will fire Bob Mueller (he’s apparently even considering firing Sessions). Maybe he’s serious; maybe he isn’t. He’s “seriously” mulled firing Bob Mueller twice before now, but according to The Daily Beast, the notion of firing Rosenstein and Mueller has reached a “fever pitch” inside the West Wing, and Democrats are planning their response, which is hopefully more than, “Welp!” I mean, on the one hand, we’ve been here before and Trump didn’t do anything. On the other hand, it’s Donald Trump. (The Daily Beast)

When we can’t find anything to watch on teevee, my husband and I will usually turn on the Game Show Network and 9 times out of 10 Family Feud is on. We’ve gotten pretty good at it. These people who were actually on the show, on the other hand? Not so much. - (Buzzfeed)

A QUIET PLACE is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera's eye open wide in a way few movies manage.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) April 6, 2018

Cannonballers and Pajibans know, "a negative review is what really unleashes the critic’s full powers, letting them unsheathe every rhetorical device and bon mot at their disposal." Giovanni’s Roomba found in Diana Rigg’s out of print compilation, No Turn Unstoned, a satisfying variety of vitriolic reviews. Do you find creatively releasing your critical bile exhilarating or exhausting? (Cannonball Read 10)
