SPORTS PAGE: San Jose lost 7-0 to Vegas in game one of round two last night. Vegas has a hockey team called the "Golden Knights"? I get San Jose Sharks, there's not much to associate Vegas with Golden Knights. Steve Wynn can tint his buildings golden, but doesn't make him a knight.
Seven goals are possible in a hockey game? Next you're going to tell me that Bill Cosby is an abuser and the "two" Koreas might reunite.
Tonight: Dodgers (Ryu) @ Giants (Holland) - 7:15pm.
Of course, I'm exhausted, as are Capitol members after deadline week. It was a stinky week in the Capitol.
POTUS: Okay, I won't go there on Ronny and Russia.
KOREA: I'm totally #TIMEGLOCKOCKED on this one! Trump is not at all responsiible for this, as I hear from members on both sides.
#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Paul Mitchell, Jacqui Nguyen, and Phil Pluckebaum!

But, the DNA profile did not match any contained in criminal databases that are used by law enforcement throughout the U.S. to link crimes to suspects.
