I don’t relish writing memorials or testimonials. But, “DVORAK UNCENSORED” needs a small jot of memory for one of the folks who authored many of the posts there in recent years. Marc Perkel. His company hosted the site.
Mark died August 1st after what feels to all of us like a really short, truly brave battle with lung cancer. I’m including a couple of links to reference sites he authored. I recommend you take the time to click through the abundance of links and get to fill out the gaps in your online contact with him.
He will be missed.

Flags at Washington Monument remain at half staff honoring the late John McCain.
Meanwhile, the Fake President has the White House flag returned to top as soon as regs allowed. Real concern (NOT) for military veterans?
By the end of the day, reason prevailed among enough White House hacks to push King Combover into enacting the sort of order – automatic for Obama or either Bush – that put the American flag back at half staff for John McCain.
❝ A federal district judge who was appointed by President Donald Trump has upheld Robert Mueller’s appointment and constitutional authority in the special counsel’s case against Russian social media propagandists.
❝ “The appointment does not violate core separation-of-powers principles. Nor has the Special Counsel exceeded his authority under the appointment order by investigating and prosecuting Concord,” Dabney Friedrich wrote in an opinion published Monday morning. She was one of the first judges Trump placed into a federal court position.
Friedrich cited opinions by three other federal judges — Amy Berman Jackson, who oversees Paul Manafort’s criminal foreign lobbying case; T.S. Ellis, who oversees Manafort’s financial fraud case; and DC District Court Chief Judge Beryl Howell — to back up her decision.
Trump really has a problem with folks well enough educated to quality for their jobs. Especially when that education tends to support historic progress rather than regressive class-based retreat.
