Friday Night Open Thread

Is anyone not sick of hearing about Donald Trump?

There's a new report by the Inspector General finding the DEA misused money for informants. It paid informants $237 million between 2011 and 2015.

We found that the DEA did not adequately oversee payments to its sources, which exposes the DEA to an unacceptably increased potential for fraud, waste and abuse, particularly given the frequency with which DEA offices utilize and pay confidential sources,” the inspector general’s office wrote

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.

    After several weeks of dining on cupcakes, followed by last week's overtime scare in the Arizona desert,  the Huskies serve notice to the rest of the Pac-12 and college football that all the preseason speculation about their enormous potential was correct, routing the Cardinal before a very happy packed house of 73,000 in Seattle.

    have that nasty stuff that i got before we went to Mexico. It was some kind of cold so bad that all I wanted to do was stay in bed. It's been a long time since I was that sick.

    Sorry to hear that you had to recover from that on your trip...bleh! Your trip looked spectacular though. I'm missing the game tonight, I'm really missing the band performance and I do my best to pay proper attention to the game.

    Josh plays the suspended cymbal and 'In the Air Tonight' is one of their songs this year so I get to hear him distinctly. He is challenged so much in dexterity but he's a dedicated band member so he has the position. I didn't want to miss a single performance...oh well.
