Clearing out my hopper of local stories.

* Because the “skills gap” is referenced here, although not with those exact words, my whitey sense starts tingling, and I presume the whole thing is a predication for begging for more or unlimited legal immigrant visas and the stapler provision. See also.
* Yeah, I’ve seen this movie. This is how it starts, the narrative hook involves affirmative action subprime mortgages, the ending is a crashed financial system and economy. Roll credits.

Also realize that he’s going to prison, and Hillary Clinton may never.
