Cheers for the heating repairman!

This is a great story.    A lady called a repairman because the home heater was not working.   During the “house call”, the repairman learned that the lady’s husband is deployed with the US Army.
At the end of the job, he charged her $ 1, or a huge “deployment” discount.
I guess that there are great people out there.   I wish we would hear more about them.

Who stole the cheese in Wisconsin?

This is one of those stories that hits you between the eyes.    

According to news reports, two trucks with $160,000 of cheese were stolen this month:

"Someone might be stocking up for the Super Bowl.Wisconsin police said a semi-trailer packed with $70,000 worth of cheese product was stolen early Friday morning, less than a week after a similar cheese theft.The Germantown Police Department said on its Facebook page that the trailer was found about 10 hours after it disappeared – but the cheese was gone.“We have recovered the trailer, minus the cheese,” Lt. Todd Grenier told WTMJ. “This was not a one- or two-person job.”A week earlier, another cheese heist occurred less than 200 miles away.“Approximately $90,000 worth of parmesan cheese was missing from a logistics or storage facility here in Marshfield,” Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larson told CBS58.Unless the thieves eat it, however, it appears the $160,000 worth of cheese is likely to go to waste.The cheese was sealed inside the truck, and when the bandits opened the truck, they broke the seal, rendering the cheese unlawful for sale, according to federal law, CBS58 reported.
Well, be careful about buying some cheese in an open market!

Illegal? What about her judgement?

We’ve been getting a lot of opinions and columns about Hillary Clinton’s troubles. The latest opinion comes from Deroy Murdock at National Review:
When the secretary of state swaps e-mails with the president of the United States and the chiefs of the Pentagon, CIA, and NSA, they presumably discuss priorities more sensitive than Downton Abbey.
Clinton first worked on Capitol Hill in 1970. She is a Yale lawyer. So she damn well knows that a “born classified” document is secret “when originated.”
Markings or no markings, she understands that the confidential views of foreign leaders, reports from ambassadors, and updates on arms-control talks are all state secrets.
Mr. Murdock is probably right. She is in deep trouble, but let me leave that to the lawyers and experts who know a lot more than me about classified documents.
My point about Hillary Clinton is that she has failed a huge test, whether she broke the law or didn’t. Mrs. Clinton showed very little judgement, from the moment that she decided to have a private server to having any association with the Clinton Foundation.
We don’t know what she or her husband were thinking in January 2009 when she became secretary of state.
Maybe she did not understand the risk of having a private server and its potential threat to revealing information that could threaten national security. At the same time, the State Department rules are clear — one ambassador was dismissed for communications outside of the official email.
Maybe she thought that she’d get away with it or dance around what the meaning of the word “is ” is like her husband did in the late 1990s.
Again, I don’t know what led her to do this. I do know that it showed incredibly poor judgement. After all, her zeal for controlling communications may have put an American under serious threat. It may have compromised a covert operation. It may have revealed President Obama’s schedule or confidential conversations with others.
How can someone like that aspire to be president of the United States? Legal or illegal, this is a high-risk woman who cannot be trusted with the nation’s highest office.
She is not qualified, even if she selects a Hispanic VP who is desperately taking Spanish lessons.
