The Washington Post, reporting on Trump's pitiful coronavirus response:

"On Friday, Trump said he had instructed Vice President Pence not to reach out to governors who aren’t 'appreciative' of his administration’s efforts.

'If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,' Trump said of state leaders, such as Inslee and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, both Democrats. 'I think they should be appreciative. We’ve done a great job.'"

It will surprise no one that Trump's pettiness prevents him from serving all Americans, as he swore to do in his oath of office. In fact, that's why Republicans elected him. They wanted someone to embody their own childishness, xenophobia, and ignorance, and that's exactly what they got.


Word-finding game — Free, open source — Windows — C#, Windows Forms

Ogle is a free, open source word-finding game for Windows:

I created this app when I was first learning C#. Ogle derives from a tabletop game you've probably played, but the pace is much faster. This version uses Windows Forms, but I'm planning to make a fancier version with WPF when I get some time.

To learn more, have a look at the Ogle help pages.


Ogle requires .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 10, 8, 7, or Vista. The Ogle installer will help you install .NET 4.5 if you do not have it:

Source code

I created Ogle with C# and Windows Forms. You can obtain the source code from GitHub.
