Misión cumplida

I just found out via Esquire that noted escapee “El Chapo” has been captured. Tweets from the Mexican President were included in the article:

An Almost Certainty in the Bush Administration

Today on Twitter, someone I follow referred to former Vice(*) President Dick Cheney as “Evil Dick.” I recently got a new phone.

Body Count’s “Evil Dick.”

In writing this, I hope to expel this imagery from my mind.
