In Moore News

After Roy Moore threatened to sue them, AL.com responded: We will not be silenced or slowed by Roy Moore’s threat.

Mr. Moore should be familiar with the relevant Supreme Court decision, New York Times Co. v. Sullivan,, a case about an Alabama official trying to sue the media. The media won.

As I expected and we saw with the Harvey Weinstein case, things are continuing to develop with the number jumping to seven and then nine as more women decide to tell their stories of Roy Moore being a creep.

Despite the dire threats of consequences from the Republican Party of Alabama, Richard Shelby, the senior Senator from Alabama says he won’t vote for Moore. Shelby said that he would write in the name of another qualified candidate.

Like We Said …

TransCanada has a terrible record, but the Keystone was going to be different – except it wasn’t:

(CNN)A total of 210,000 gallons of oil leaked Thursday from the Keystone Pipeline in Marshall County, South Dakota, the pipeline’s operator, TransCanada, said.

Crews shut down the pipeline Thursday morning and officials are investigating the cause of the leak.

This is the largest Keystone oil spill to date in South Dakota, said Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the state’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Maybe the 42 thousand jobs they said they were creating were the number needed to clean up after the spills.

I don’t think a couple of bags of cat litter are going to take care of this. 😈

Update: Drone video of the leak area.
