In other news, economic growth slowed during the first quarter of the year according to the Commerce Department. Consumer spending and business spending both fell below expectations. Great tax cuts.

Meanwhile, sources tell Vanity Fair that Trump is considering nominating his Chief of Staff John Kelly to run the Department of Veterans Affairs now that "candyman" Ronny Jackson has withdrawn from consideration.

Finally, the child custody battle between two former Trump campaign staffers who had an affair during the 2016 campaign tells us that Ted Cruz's staffers believe the moon landing was fake.

Father once told Mother he believes the moon landing was staged. When Mother asked how he could possibly believe such, he said he learned it from spending time with Ted Cruz’s team, noting something about the Houston connection.

So, there's that.

Avengers: Infinity War was excellent, but I strongly recommend catching up on all the other Marvel films before you see it.

Have a good weekend.

    (Insert random joke about that time Elvis poured me a cup of coffee at a diner.)

    Life’s been beating me up as of late so the Avengers film sounds the kind of thing I could really use right about now. I’ll get there eventually.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    • I wish I had seen this three days ago so I could warn you ahead of time. I won’t spoil anyone with this comment but just a heads up. I took my daughter to see the Avengers movie this weekend and it did NOT meet my expectations. It was a good movie. However, if you are in need of a mood “pick-me-up” this movie won’t help you.

        I actually haven’t been able to see it yet so maybe it’s a good thing I put it off. I heard basically the same thing from Red Letter Media. I’ll catch it when I’m in a better mood.

        Thanks for the heads up.
