Tuesday's HOT MIC

Here is your HOT MIC for today.


I have been a science fiction fan since my early twenties and Le Guin's books have long been on my radar but I had never gotten around to reading one until recently. I'm in the middle of "Always Coming Home," a book my daughter gave me as a Christmas present a couple of years ago. While it can be classified as sci-fi because it is set in the future it's not that easy to pigeonhole. It's a post-apocalyptic tale that is about people returning to tribal roots. The flavor is more American southwest in the 1700s with hints of with hints of the future. Le Guin herself resisted being labeled as a sci-fi writer, but that's what most people remember her as. The book I'm reading is wildly imaginative, by the way.

Ladies and gentlemen, the editor of Newsweek's Pakistan edition.

Try to watch this whole thing without shedding a tear, I dare you:

In the text messages from May of 2017 released to the public, Strzok calls the Mueller probe an "investigation leading to impeachment."

Strzok also talks about having "a sense of unfinished business" that was "unleashed" by the Clinton email case that he needs "to fix."

Strzok seemed to be filled with regret about the role he played in torpedoing Clinton's campaign.

This morning on Fox News, Rep. Trey Gowdy referenced a text from the day after the election (after referencing a "secret society" within the DOJ and FBI) in which Strzok talked about fixing the damage they did in the Clinton investigation.
