"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

"Officers, they're looting the Food King!"


I just have to add:  what did I tell you?

It turns out Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus had to explain that a man convicted of a felony could not speak at the convention, three anonymous GOP strategists familiar with those conversations told the Times. He reportedly reminded Trump that King had stomped a man to death, and Trump eventually conceded.

Another one of Trump's picks that reportedly was vetoed by GOP officials was Kathleen Willey, the woman who alleged former President Bill Clinton had groped her in the White House (Clinton denied that allegation in a 1998 deposition). The Times reported that top Trump aide Paul Manafort confirmed some speakers would reference Bill Clinton's "harassment" of women and Hillary Clinton's "enabling" of that behavior, though.

Even those who've been approved for speaking slots seem to be in the dark about what's expected of them, according to the report. As of Friday, some speakers hadn't been given guidance by the campaign or been asked to submit speeches for vetting.
