Where I am there’s no shortage of lightning in the area at the moment to help zap this Sunday open thread into existence:

At last night’s Trump-free White House Correspondents Dinner, Carl Bernstein inadvertently helped describe why so much of the MSM has managed to make itself a lightning rod for disdain:

The emission level feels lower already. Thanks, “People’s Climate March”! I’m guessing DiCaprio, Gore and Branson look so pleased at these climate marches because it’s nice for a change to escape from the confines of their private jets, SUV limos and mansions.

Have a good Sunday all!
