Justice at a Glacial Pace

“The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.” — Anon No newspaper could arrive at our advanced age without having a deep respect for tradition. By extension, then, the ancient bit of wisdom quoted above should help us calmly accept the pace of a certain trial in Manhattan. Alas, it does not. The case itself seems solid enough. But will the jury have time to find the defendant guilty? Or will his apparent mental deterioration result in a compassionate release, on grounds of advanced senility? The first day of the trial saw the accused—who calls the incumbent President “Sleepy Joe”—nodding off at the defendants table. Some Twitter wag quickly dubbed him “Don Snorleone.” That little gag set us to wondering: could that mid-trial nap have just been a ruse, borrowed from a former business associate? As the Village Voice’s Wayne Barrett revealed in 1992, Don Snorleone built his signature Trump Tower using ready-mix concrete from a company partly controlled by Vincent “The Chin”…

Last Year, You Spent More Than a Month’s Rent on Pentagon Contractors

A dollar by dollar look at how our taxes enrich military contractors — at the expense of things that actually make us secure. By Lindsay Koshgarian Ever wonder where your taxes go? Each year, the Institute for Policy Studies releases a tax receipt so you can find out. One item always stands out: the Pentagon—and the contractors who profit off it. In 2023, the average taxpayer spent $2,974 on the Pentagon. Of that, just $705 went to salaries for the troops, who often have to rely on programs like food stamps. A much larger sum—$1,748—went to corporate Pentagon contractors. That’s more than the average American’s monthly rent, $1,372. From Lockheed Martin (the top federal contractor and longtime weapons maker) to SpaceX (which Elon Musk runs…

“Thanks again, as always, for making the now really bad news somewhat easier to tolerate. The truth, which is now seldom spoken, and never spoken by our nation’s “Liar in Chief,” just keeps getting worse and worse. I am thankful for our still (for now, anyway) free press and late night television comedians’ rants posted on Youtube about the state of our country.”
