Trump Drops 12 Points In Republican Poll

This is more than a bit misleading. He's still pulling 31 in this new Reuters-Ipsos poll, although he was only at 25 about two weeks ago. The confusing fact is that in between those two levels he had suddenly jumped 17 points among likely GOP voters, following the Milwaukee debate and the SNL appearance. The correct interpretation of the new poll is that he has now given back 12 points of that 17-point windfall. Yes, his trend is suddenly downward, and many establishment figures celebrate that first chink in his armor, but the same poll linked above shows that he still leads Ben Carson by 16 points after the drop-off, which represents overall a substantial net gain during the past two weeks. The 16-point lead reflected in this poll, which is supposed to represent his great fall, is actually far MORE than in the latest polls summarized at RCP, which show him with no more than a 10-point lead.

(In the RCP summary, Carson was the frontrunner on November 4th and 5th, albeit by a scant margin - 24.8 to 24.6. He now trails Trump by 7.7 in their analysis, but that has not been updated since the 19th, and Trump has come under fire since then.)

The same new Reuters-Ipsos poll also shows no strength among the establishment candidates, with Rubio, Cruz and Bush pulling 8-8-7 respectively. The earlier polls summarized at RCP show Rubio and Cruz in the 11-12 range, so they are simply failing to move the needle.

Foul-Mouthed and Proud of It on the ’16 Campaign Trail

"Such frequent, deliberate cursing by presidential candidates addressing campaign audiences in this election cycle seems to be without modern precedent. It is a striking departure for a party whose 2012 nominee, Mitt Romney, let fly expressions like “H-E-double-hockey-sticks” when he wanted to be puckish."

This NY Times article probably tells you more about the Times than the candidates. They will print "ass" and
"damn," but will not spell out shit even when they are quoting somebody directly." In the most extreme case, Joe Biden's famous BFD, they call it "a 'big deal,' with a two-syllable modifier in between"

Has the mystery of DB Cooper, hijacker who vanished parachuting from plane, been solved?

I'm not convinced. It's a very flimsy case that connects Richard Lepsy to the notorious skyjacker.

The connection with Lynn Cooper, established in 2011, seems stronger, although that investigation ran into a blind alley.

Interesting trivia that I learned from reading up on this just now:
  • Of the $200,000 demanded by Cooper, the only portion ever recovered was the group of three rotting bundles found by the little boy in 1980. Not a single bill was ever placed into circulation, indicating that Cooper probably did not survive his jump from the 727.

  • There was never a "DB" Cooper. The skyjacker purchased his ticket as "Dan" Cooper. How did the mix-up occur? Wikipedia spins the tale:
    "Local police and FBI agents immediately began questioning possible suspects. One of the first was an Oregon man with a minor police record named D. B. Cooper, contacted by Portland police on the off-chance that the hijacker had used his real name, or the same alias in a previous crime. His involvement was quickly ruled out; but an inexperienced wire service reporter (Clyde Jabin of UPI by most accounts, Joe Frazier of AP by others), rushing to meet an imminent deadline, confused the eliminated suspect's name with the pseudonym used by the hijacker. The mistake was picked up and repeated by numerous other media sources, and the moniker "D. B. Cooper" became lodged in the public's collective memory."
    It was a misnomer that proved useful to the FBI, since they knew any "tips" leading to "DB" Cooper were coming from the usual media-inspired cranks, while tips leading to "Dan" Cooper might be genuine.
