Today is Tuesday, September 12, the 255th day of 2017 in the Gregorian calendar, with 110 days remaining.

This is the 235th day of Donald Trump's presidency. There are 1,227 days remaining in his term, assuming he doesn't resign, is otherwise removed from office, or his unhinged, psychotic behavior results in the destruction of the republic.

What happened on September 12 from  On This Day

-----

Among other things, today is National Chocolate Milkshake Day.

-----

Florida man's joke about shooting Irma gets taken seriously.

-----

Quote of the day:

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
-H.L. Mencken
(More H.L. Mencken quotes)

-----

On this date in 1966, The Monkees premiered on NBC-TV.

-----

If you're so inclined, you can track the U.S. Congress and get daily reports on what your Congresscritters are doing.

-----

The risk of nuclear war with North Korea... On the ground in Pyongyang: Could Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump goad each other into a devastating confrontation? Better have your morning coffee first. Ah, for the good old days: The threat of mutally assured destruction kept the west and the Soviet Union from engaging in a nuclear exchange during the Cold War. Alas, that doctrine doesn't work any more.

-----

The US Senate approves a bi-partisan resolution condemning white supremacist groups. The sad thing is the resolution is apparently necessary.

-----

Irma won't "wake up" climate change-denying Republicans. Their whole ideology is on the line. Paul Krugman agrees. And the Pope criticizes climate change deniers as well.

-----

City raccoons are becoming smarter, and our efforts to keep them out of places we don't want them to be is helping boost their intelligence.

-----

A marriage therapist tries to explain why happy people engage in infidelity. A few interesting points, but don't expect a clear-cut answer.

-----

The Equifax data breach was massive, and actions people should take to protect themselves are confusing. Here's what you should do.

-----

Why are rich people so easily offended? Findings suggest that wealth alone, even merely by luck, makes people feel more entitled, and more likely to reject unfair offers.

-----

"The more the participants believed in religious or other paranormal phenomena, the lower their intuitive physics skills, mechanical and mental rotation abilities, school grades in mathematics and physics, and knowledge about physical and biological phenomena were... and the more they regarded inanimate targets as mental phenomena." Study: religious and superstitious people struggle to understand the physical world. Yet we keep electing them.

-----

Elegy for the Sunshine State- It's useful to remember this now, as Hurricane Irma lays waste to much of Florida: the destruction of the state has been unfolding for decades, and, for the most part, it wasn’t done by nature. It was done by us.

-----

Seven days of heroin- this is what an epidemic looks like. At least 180 overdoses, 80 deaths, more than 200 heroin users in jail, 15 babies born with heroin-related medical problems. A typical week in Cincinnati, Ohio.
