There was no Report yesterday because the dogs and I were avoiding all the President's promised "fire and fury" by hiding under my desk. Well, seriously, did you ever have one of those one step forward, two flights of stairs backwards on your ass days?

Starting next week, I think I'm going to tweak the Report a bit, to make it more like our Facebook content and my personal page. Because all this political stuff is just too demoralizing. To be sure, I'm not going to stop ridiculing Il Orange Douché, but we'll otherwise lighten things up a bit.

See you on Monday.
