Bring your trunks
Weekend at Bernie’s: Former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is facing charges of hypocrisy on social media after the avowed democratic socialist bought a $575,000 vacation home on Lake Champlain (Page A10).
But maybe the Bernie Bros will change their tune when they get their invite to the beach party.
I’d rather be slumming at Nordstrom: Until about a year ago, Nordstrom, the upscale department store famous for its customer service, had avoided the decline in sales suffered by other retailers. But recently it has seen sales slip, its stock lose half its value and its credit downgraded (Page A7).
It got bad enough that when Nordstrom requested one of its own credit cards it had to ask mall neighbor Auntie Anne’s pretzel shop to co-sign for the card.
Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket: This week’s Perseid meteor showers could reach peaks of more than 200 meteors an hour, about double the usual rate (Page A6).
That’s twice the chance then for those who are backing Cataclysmic Meteor 2016 as a third option instead of Trump or Clinton.
