David Waldman brings on the Friday Insanity, and there’s plenty:
Remember the War from Christmas?
Augusta County schools in Virginia closed after being hit by the perfect storm of ignorance, as calligraphy brings an abundance of caution and puddles of urine from school officials. Nothing to learn here, move on.

David delves further into the shams, scams, and shell games of flim-flammer Martin Shkreli, who had learned from lessons taught by Bain capital, Gordon Gekko, Don Corleone, and generally all BBA courses to remember to drain the maximum available from every transaction, but didn’t learn to first legislate the crime out of his business dealings, and most importantly to build a good coalition of powerful political friends. Like ISIS and Saudi Arabia.
