In other news, the FDA is drafting new rules to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes except ones that use tobacco. So, tobacco and real cigarettes and guns are fine, but not flavored e-cigs. Guns kill 100 Americans every single day.

I can't help but cast a dubious eye at this.

Meanwhile, right wing media has declared that Trump firing their longtime favorite warhawk John Bolton is actually great because Bolton was a liberal progressive anyway.

Can you even imagine being this unhinged?

Finally, a Scottish court has ruled that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's suspension of parliament was unlawful because he allegedly lied to about the reason for requesting it.

Scotland’s highest court of appeal ruled against Johnson’s decision to prorogue, or suspend, parliament from Monday until Oct. 14 — a blow for the government as it seeks to leave the European Union on Oct. 31 with or without a deal.

The government will appeal against the ruling to the Supreme Court, the United Kingdom’s highest judicial body, and an official said Johnson believed parliament remained suspended pending a decision by that court. [...]

Opponents said the real reason was to shut down debate and challenges to his Brexit plans. The court was shown documents that showed Johnson was considering prorogation weeks before he formally asked Queen Elizabeth to suspend the legislature.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the ruling, saying it was a matter for the government.

Dominic Grieve, one of 21 Brexit rebels thrown out of Johnson’s Conservative Party last week, said that if Johnson had misled the queen, he should resign.

Johnson is a liar and he's not going to resign.

    “So, tobacco and real cigarettes *AND GUNS* are fine, but not flavored e-cigs.”
    This was my first thought. And second and third, too. I assume Juul et all haven’t paid enough to the ruling overlords in government.
    Unfortunately, no slash snark after that.
