    I follow Katie Hopkins on Twitter (let me explain: she is often too hateful for my taste, but I got a weak spot for her after reading of her struggle with epilepsy). This came by. On the one hand I find it very funny because it attacks Trump's ego. On the other hand I agree with her analysis. If this is the most original Trump's opponents can invent then we have a very long way to go (unfortunately).

    Anyone can have a star, you just have to pay for it.

    No problem: with the streets bristling with CCTV cameras, Alcatraz-style street lighting and cities designed around facial recognition systems to protect the citizenry from crime the culprit was probably identified within milliseconds!

    Certainly no passer-by would have noticed anything. I believe everyone in LA settles down at home with a mug of hot milk at about nine thirty.

    Read about this elsewhere, with a comment mentioning 'American exceptionalism'.

    ..Read about this elsewhere, with a comment mentioning 'American exceptionalism'...

    Does that mean it was an exceptionally stupid thing to do , particularly if you are American ?

    I inferred that the poster thought the couple died because they placed too much faith in the idea that just being American would keep them safe.

    And another one, also from the USA funnily enough...

    North Carolina, possibly about to get hit by a massive hurricane, passed a law in 2012 banning policies based on the science of rising sea levels, and are carrying on building, building, building. I'm very fond of the phrase 'what could possibly go wrong?' and I think it's quite apt here...
