Okay so, apparently, Sessions met with the Russians a couple of times during the Trump campaign and told Congress - under oath - that he didn't. His office is saying he didn't lie, they didn't talk about the election. Except he doesn't really remember what they talked about. But it wasn't about the leaks or the election.


Also, from a December report, about how a Republican SuperPAC connected to Paul Ryan used material from the Russian spying campaign in GOP elections.

So that's fun.

The Iowa State Senator pushing for political quotas on campus? Turns out his business degree is managerial training at Sizzler Steakhouse. No, really.

Also, the Trump administration admits more outright lying to journalists as part of a "misdirection play" to generate some inaccurate but positive reporting before the State of the Union/joint session address. Even before that came out, you were seeing criticism of their handling of it ("presidential" is now just "not ranting deliriously for an hour"?) from the New Republic.

And four mosques have been burned in the last seven weeks; three have been declared arson, the fourth is still under investigation.

Probably the last post 'till Monday - I'm in British Columbia this weekend for a music workshop. I'm late packing, so all you get is a headline list, I'm afraid. Sorry. See you on the flip side.
