We were sitting around with the boys by the stove in the general store trying to select the items to use this week in our weekly 'omage to the "the three dot" journalism stile of column writing because there were so many possible items and the regular readers only have a limited time available to peruse this humble offering.

Here's how the final choices go:

Joshua Sabatini in a story on page 6 of The San Francisco Examiner issue for November 30, 2016, with the headline "SF considers spending $7M to block deportations", informed readers that the funds would be taken from programs for the homeless and transportation.

When photos were published showing President Obama working in the Oval Office in his shirt sleeves, some Republicans objected strenuously because, they said, he was showing disrespect for the presidency. Now that Trump is selling Christmas tree ornaments and mugs that proclaim Let's Make America Great Again, are voters going to say that huckster tactics help improve the world's respect for the White House occupant?

Some ant-Trump liberal skeptics have started to fret that if Jeff Sessions become the Attorney General he will not be enthusiastic about recent moves made by voters in several states to legalize medicinal and/or recreational marijuana.

Is it true that an association of pot growers in Northern California plan to build a tourist attraction named "The Hemp Hall of Fame"?

What movies should be honored? Reefer Madness, of course. Did the movie M*A*S*H have a pot smoking scene?

Is Fantasia the greatest stoner movie of all time?

When Mrs. Clinton, realized on election night, what the final result would be, did she say "Billy, we blew it."?

If Rowan and Martin were still doing "Laugh In" would they have given a Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award to Jill Stein this week for her recent recount antics?

We were intrigued to hear this week Hunter S. Thompson's family were implementing plans to enter the emerging legal pot trend by cloning some products from the famous author's private stash.

Are Berkeley-based cynics urging that the official theme song for Trump's Inauguration should be Judy Collins' "Send in the Clowns"?

Does the Democratic Party have a bullpen of liberal propagandists ready to participate in the gridlocked political partisan debate ?

WTF Dept.: This Week - The World's laziest Journalist has been asked to determine what is the value of a 1844 stamp from the American Letter Mail Co.?

Now the disk jockey will play "The Ballad of Easy Rider", the theme from M*A*S*H and "The Green, Green Grass of Home".

Have a chill out and get mellow kind of week!
