I’m writing for tomorrow. I’m groggy after sleeping 7 hours in the last 24 and feel ready to go back to bed. Tomorrow is a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb. My Broncos are worshiping in the Chiefs’ venue, and their service is televised here, so I shall be meditating. May the Orb shed it’s holy light on your team, unless it’s KC.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 3:23 (average 4:13). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Common Dreams: A day of protests at well over a thousand locations nationwide saw huge numbers of pro-worker activists and Walmart [sic] employees themselves protesting against the retail giant’s notoriously low wages and flagrant disregard for their employees’ well-being.
Kudos to the demonstrators for standing up to Wal-Fart’s Republican class warfare!
From Crooks and Liars: I’m sure everyone saw this one coming a mile away as well. El Rushbo couldn’t let the talking heads on Fox be the only ones getting in on the Pope bashing after he dared to speak out against unfettered capitalism and the idolatry of money.
Since both Limbarf and the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, are bashing this Pope, he must be closer to authentic Christianity than any Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian.
From Think Progress: Ohio Congresswoman Marcia Fudge (D) has asked Attorney General Eric Holder to review two voting measures making their way through the state legislature that she claims could “suppress the voting rights of African Americans and other minorities.”
The proposed bills (S. 238 and H.B. 269) would reduce the number of absentee-voting days by six, prevent newly registered voters from voting the day they register, and require voters to present valid identification — a driver’s license, a state or military ID card, or a passport — when casting a ballot.
Election theft by disenfranchising black voters is not a Southern problem. It’s a Republican problem.
