“The Case of the Missing Ribosome and Other Tales of Protein Translation,” by Dr. Jonathan Yewdell is a talk being given at Ohio State next Monday, the day before the rest of us go to the polls. Change a few words and it could sound mysteriously political-- “The Case of the Missing e-mails and Other Tales of Political Translation.” A wildly strange last minute October surprise. What will Democrats now try to throw out about Trump to see if it sticks? More sex charges? More tax charges? Can it be more salacious than missing e-mails stored on the computer of a pervert? Huma Abedin is lawyering up. Will she be offered a deal while still under the Stronger Together bus? We’ve got an Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) our top cop who has to investigate all the little guys whose reputation is completely compromised by a meeting on the tarmac with the candidate’s husband and taking the 5th on the $1.7 billion ransom payment to Iran. Is the FBI director, James Comey, who reports to Lynch going rogue with the truth? And a high up FBI associate (McCabe) in the mix whose wife accepted $650,000 from the DNC to run her campaign for Senate? All this on the tail of the news about the increase of deductibles and premiums of health insurance, and the Wikileaks Podesta e-mails about Bill Clinton Inc. showing his clearly illegal and crass behavior in the Clinton Foundation.
