Slate is looking for assistance in parsing this "sentence" uttered by Donald Trump.

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, okay, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, okay, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you're a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.
At the Slate Political Gabfest's live D.C. show this week, Emily, David, and John tried to diagram a sentence uttered in Sun City, South Carolina on July 21 by the ever-eloquent Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. They were defeated. But, as this is America, the story doesn't end there. Readers...

The Republican Party is a joke, but still a deeply dangerous one. 
"News" without truth. A base that celebrates a clown. Tear the party down and start over -- for the country's sake

So I find that I have one of these on my balcony, which is a first. Does anyone know what it is? A baby iguana?

Cryptographers and security experts gathered on the Hill yesterday to tell Congress how stupid it was to ban crypto in order to make it easier to spy on "bad guys."

The drone pilot claims that his drone over 200 feet in the air when it was shot down by a neighbor.
How much of your airspace do you actually own? Federal law remains unclear.

For those who thought the bar still had room to be lowered, our findings resoundingly contradict that assumption,” Logsdon said. “The bar is now essentially flush with the ground.”

Here are some more pictures of my little friend. My Googling has led me to the Knight anole, native to Cuba but also found in Florida.

I just got back from spending several days with my extended family on Cape Cod. We've been going to the same place for decades. It was a great place for drone flying and video, until some parents reported to the management of the inn that they were concerned that their precious little children were being spied on, so I had to stop.

This is a photograph I took while the fun lasted. I ran it through an iOS app called ToonCamera, which gives it a water color-y look.
