Jeffery Epstein is dead.
We Americans have something of an odd streak when it comes to humor, especially so-called “dark humor.” Back in 2001, literally less than twenty-four hours after the events of 9-11, I heard the first 9-11 joke. It was tasteless. It was highly inappropriate. Most of all it was highly insensitive. But in an era when we as a society weren’t offended by everything that was ever uttered, it was also, very funny. I remember laughing at it, feeling horribly bad about it, laughing some more and then – this is still remarkable to me – just moving on.
With the much expected and the predicted demise of Mr. Epstein, the jokes and the gallows humor (ahem) have already made it around the world and back again. I’ll admit it, I laughed at some of them.
But many questions remain. The biggest of which is whether or not this is justice?
A question about submarines and nuclear weapons has Dave off and running on a Friday when pretty everybody is sick and tired of the same old political discussion. So let’s look at some of the history of the Cold war and why we do things the way that we do them…

But apparently, it doesn’t matter at all to the politicians who are more worried about Red Flag laws…
