Paul Ryan endorses Trump

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, cringing from the decision for days after it became clear who would win the party’s nomination, has finally endorsed Donald Trump’s bid to become U.S. President.

The Wisconsin Republican has voice reservations over Trump’s tone throughout the campaign and disagrees with him on many policy areas. Last month, he met with the likely GOP nominee and still withheld his endorsement. As recent as last week, he was still holding out.

But on Thursday he finally acquiesced. In a column in the Janesville Gazette, the Speaker wrote that the two “have more common ground than disagreement.” And despite never using the word “endorse” in the article, Ryan’s spokesman confirmed it was an official endorsement.

For Republicans, obedience or oblivion.

Salmon with Lemon Cream Sauce

Salmon with Lemon Cream Sauce

It’s always hard to plan for a fish meal around here, because it all depends on what the market has fresh. You can show up at the store with the best intentions of securing a thick halibut steak only to be disappointed with what clearly looks like it’s been sitting under the glass for a few days.

Fish is best fresh, there’s no way around it. The fresher the better! So, the best attitude to approach the fish section is, what looks best?

With whole fish, you can usually tell just by looking at the eyes—they should be clear, not foggy and sunken. With fillets, if the surface is dried out and tired looking, that’s not a good sign. The fillet should glisten, like it was just cut, and should smell fresh, not fishy.

Middle school teacher in trouble after administering “Pimps and Hos” math test

160601-racist-quiz-image-yh-0820p_0d3034bb48cafa0f133380279345b69c.nbcnews-ux-600-480

Teacher JoAnne Bolser of Mobile, Alabama’s public Cranford Burns Middle School was put on leave last week after administering a math test with word problems about pimps, hos, cocaine dealing, drive-by shootings, gangmembers who “knocked up” multiple girls, and other delightful subjects. The questions included:

“Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

“Pedro got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 of his hit money per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?”

Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?

Kids in Bolser’s class texted photos of the quiz to their parents, sparking an investigation.

“The principal looked into it and then our school resource officer investigated it and then we immediately put the teacher on administrative leave,” said the school’s director of communications, Rena Philips.

Bolser was already planning to retire at the end of the school year this month.
