    Most Memorable Cover Performances

    Andrew Zimmern had a great Twitter solicitation yesterday: So, what are everyone's favorite or most memorable live covers you saw in person? I'll start. I've witnessed so many great shows and cover songs, so it's hard to know where to begin, but these are the most memorable, including the...

    Next season - who are the captains?

    <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> That would be weird and counterproductive, I think.

    Unexplained Aerial Phenomena

    I had no idea it was World UFO Day until I saw this story. <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> I figure it's as good a day as any to ask if any GopherHolers have seen a UFO or some other aerial phenomena that are difficult or impossible to...

    U.S. Mint Unveils Coin Featuring Lady Liberty as an African American

    https://www.theatlantic.com/liveblogs/2017/01/news-today/513068/13622/?utm_source=atltw I'll be the first to admit it: this proves bga's point that Obama is a Muslim secular humanist.

    November 22

    A passage I'll never forget, from James Douglas' excellent book on the Kennedy murder: Late at night on the June 5, 1961, plane flight back to Washington from his Vienna meeting with Nikita Khrushchev, a weary President Kennedy wrote down on a slip of paper, as he was about to fall asleep, a...

    Civil Forfeitures

    Thought this was significant. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/11/23/cops-took-more-stuff-from-people-than-burglars-did-last-year/ For a country that was founded in large part on property rights, it's hard to believe we tolerate this nonsense.

    So you don't think the mass media is centrally scripted?

    I'm not even sure I can explain this, and I have quite an imagination.

    Is Taxation Theft?

    I give Section2 a hard time, but the point he makes about taxation being theft is not that unheard of. I tend to subscribe to the "social contract" point of view, but many others do not. It's not a scientific poll, but the page on debate.org dedicated to the question currently has 81% of the...

    And we are all mortal.

    "A Strategy of Peace" Commencement address to American University in Washington, D.C. Delivered by President Kennedy, June 10, 1963 President Anderson, members of the faculty, board of trustees, distinguished guests, my old colleague, Senator Bob Byrd, who has earned his degree through many...

    Your Military Industrial Security Complex At Work

    TSA is Swahili for waste, fraud and abuse. I had to read this article several times to fully grasp its stupidity. http://www.gsnmagazine.com/node/30506

    A Place For Galt

    Finally, a place to secede to for all the like-minded (until they figure out they still can't agree with each other, I suppose). Gun-toting right takes to the hills "Guns would be ubiquitous: any resident aged 13 and over would be expected to carry an assault rifle, plus 'at least five...

    Rodney Williams

    Rodney's elevated play was the key to this team's surge in last year's postseason and this year's success so far. Right now he doesn't look like the same player we thought had emerged as a senior star, and the team likewise isn't looking the same either. Williams continues to be the key to...

    The Most Important Statistic in Politics Today

    Wasn't sure whether to post this under the "GOP changing the rules" thread, but thought it was its own topic. Originally published in PhiladelphiaWeekly.com in early November and repeated in The Week a few weeks ago: "More Americans cast votes for Democratic House candidates last week than for...

    Does anybody think this is odd?

    An official memo from the president's desk warning of an "insider" threat to the U.S.: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/11/21/presidential-memorandum-national-insider-threat-policy-and-minimum-stand This could mean any number of things, but I have to think it means something.
