      K: great work just like the Billary’ fact check. So glad that NR took you on and gave you a national pulpit. I’m sure the commuters miss you, but it is definitely worth it. Keep it up.

      “Mayor McCheese”! Splendid.

      OK, why no parades for Lurch – easy answer: New Yorkers don’t want to take orders from anyone else. No one else. Not even from themselves.

      Anyone who had parents who actually thought that the head-on audio crash of the spoken words “Warren” and “Wilhelm” would be a good name for their son must have inherited the fathomless stupidity of his parents.

      I think he’s the 2017 version of “Mr. Wilson” in the old Dennis The Menace TV series. Remake!

      However, please give him credit for one thing:

      Even this gangling loser knew another kindred-soul screw-up when he saw one.

      Hence, his refusal to immediately endorse Hillary Clinton when she regally commanded him to pay homage.

      It must amuse him to think about how, today, he’s still got a job, and she doesn’t.

      Maybe he got on line at the book signings of “What Happened” so he could shove his copy in front of her so she could read his handwritten inscription:

      “OK, Hil, SO… what REALLY happened?
