So, I was exhausted the last few days (and still am) from all the marches in the streets. Things are expected to be quiet until Wednesday, which marks the 50th year since the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. 

No typical April Fool's Nooners. The prize instead goes out to Sean Dugar, who posted on Facebook that he was leaving the Assembly to become director of African-American outreach in the Trump administration, a position abandoned by Omarosa. He even mentioned an office in the steam pipe trunk distribution venue, which is as home gamer as one can get.

Well played, sir. Well played.
