Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The Word Of The Day Is "Extreme"

Speaking yesterday in Youngstown, Ohio, Donald Trump called for a new screening test for immigrants wishing to enter the U.S.

He said, "We will be tough.  And we will be very extreme.  Extreme.  I call it extreme vetting.  I call it extreme, extreme vetting."

And what exactly would be involved in "extreme vetting"?  No one knows, least of all Donald himself.

But when one has limited vocabulary and poor reading skills as Trump does, it's best to just pick a word and stick with it.  Five times.
