Saturday Reads

The votes in a few key states seem highly suspicious.

I wouldn't be surprised if there had been some hacking involved.

However, there are a lot of dumb shit dudes in the rust belt who are bitching about "their" jobs being gone and being forced to compete with minorities and women.

Obituary: Renowned heart surgeon Denton Cooley, 96, has died. He helped pioneer heart transplant surgery.

In 1962, he founded the Texas Heart Institute, where he personally performed more than 60,000 open heart surgeries over the course of his career. Of those, two were particularly noteworthy: In 1968, he performed the United States' first successful human heart transplant. In 1969, he performed world's first artificial heart implant.

The latter milestone led to a professional rivalry with former colleague and fellow Texas heart surgeon Michael E. DeBakey, who had been Cooley’s senior associate. Disagreement about the procedure landed the two world class heart surgeons on the cover of Life magazine in 1970.

The rift deepened into a personal feud that lasted decades, until they reconciled in 2007, shortly before DeBakey's death at 99.

The women who voted for Trump are largely religious right types who think that making abortion illegal will further empower themselves over the men who get them pregnant.

When you are raised with the mentality all you are good for is fucking, popping out kids, and being servants to dudes, it is hard to see the world in any other way.
