Time to lock the thread and let that be the final word ...

I disagree. We're going to have Trump Administration stuff coming out for a while and having a good gathering place for it strikes me as appropriate.

But I can pretend we're democratic, if folks would like.

Oh, I don't really think any threads should be locked.

But that seemed like a fitting epitaph...

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — One name missing in President Donald Trump’s flurry of pardons was “Tiger King” Joe Exotic.

His team was so confident in a pardon that they had readied a celebratory limousine and a hair and wardrobe team to whisk away the zookeeper-turned-reality-TV-star, who is serving a 22-year federal prison sentence in Texas. But he wasn’t on the list announced Wednesday morning.

Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was sentenced in January 2020 to 22 years in federal prison for violating federal wildlife laws and for his role in a failed murder-for-hire plot targeting his chief rival, Carole Baskin, who runs a rescue sanctuary for big cats in Florida. Baskin was not harmed.

Maldonado-Passage, who has maintained his innocence, was also sentenced for killing five tigers, selling tiger cubs and falsifying wildlife records. A jury convicted him in April 2019.
