Trump strategy revealed
Donald Trump has emerged as the big winner from the first presidential debate, after securing the highly sought-after 'undecided white supremacist' vote in a fiery encounter with Joe Biden. President Trump left no stone unturned in his attempts to reassure racists Americans that he 'has their back'. Part-time KKK member Chuck Williams told NewsThump.com: "I wasn't sure if Trump was really the guy for us, given he says a lot that could sound like support, but only when he thinks no-one is paying attention. So I was absolutely delighted to hear him telling the Proud Boys to 'stand by' last night when asked to condemn racists by the debate moderator. It would have been really easy for him to say of course he condemns us, and move on, but instead he chose that huge platform to acknowledge people like me and to tell us to be ready and waiting for the race war we all covet."

Famous Last Words
There are memorable last utterances — Emily Dickinson's "I must go in, for the fog is rising." Or Oscar Wilde's "This wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One of us has got to go!" — but what do people really say? Not like in the movies, for sure. Much of it is nonsensical, owing to medication, fading physical and neurological function, pain, and so on. But, it sounds like Steve Job's "Oh wow. Oh wow" is right in line with the apparently common exclamations or use of expletives. The dying often use the metaphor of travel to alert those around them that it is time and heartbreakingly, the last words of dying men are often calls to their mother.
