FERGUSON – MUST WATCH
If like me you wonder how the Ferguson grand jurors failed to see a reason to take the case to trial — even on a charge as relatively minor as involuntary manslaughter – watch Lawrence O’Donnell’s compelling report. This is not to say a full trial would have produced a conviction. [...]
Three things to watch this long weekend:
You’re not human if you watch and don’t laugh out loud at the end.
TAKE OFF YOUR SHOE AND GIVE ME YOUR MACHETE
AND +SPEAKING+ OF [...]
Here’s the two-minute version.
Here: the full “60 Minutes” segment.
Some will die from the occasional bridge collapse — not a small thing — but what most people will notice are the crippling disruptions in their lives and the economy.
All it takes to fix it is . . . to fix it.
President Obama has been averaging 33 a year. Presidents Bush averaged 41 and 36; President Reagan, 47; Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, and Ford: in the 60′s, each — all just relentlessly “shredding the Constitution,” starting with George Washington, who issued 8. It’s so ridiculous — but welcome to today’s Republican Party. (Thanks, Tony Spina, for [...]
These are not fireflies, but they do a beautiful two-minute dance through the sky.
“HEROES YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF” DEPT.
And neither had I. But here, in a short obituary, the life of Bernard Mayes.
“GENIUSES YOU HAVE”
Or should have! (Perhaps you’ve seen “The Graduate”? “Annie”?) Mike Nichols died Wednesday. [...]
I’ve always wanted to meet you. In case you live in the New York area and are free Sunday — and you like a spirited show — now’s our chance. My pal Seth Sikes so wowed the 54 Below supper club last month they asked him back for an encore. Buy tickets here. [...]
Today’s post is not late — this is tomorrow’s, way early.
If patience is a virtue, we are all saints. Yet the consensus for “e-taxi” does seem to be building and WheelTug’s e-taxi solution does seem — to me, at least — to be the leading contender . . . with more than 20 [...]
Guru: “I think it’s up since you mentioned it Wednesday because FGEN finally priced its IPO. At 23/share, that’s $1.3 billion whereas AKBA is 200+ million and yet almost the same drug and one year behind. FGEN has more data, a big partnership, a year’s advantage. Again, purely on that basis, FGEN is the better company [...]
I AM COMPULSIVELY EARLY . . .
. . . and in a 12-step program for that. It meets Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm and we’re generally out by 6:45.
The Administration’s response to Ebola has led now to the deaths of (still zero) Americans.
Other health-related metrics of note: 26% fewer Americans now lack [...]
CARRY THE LIGHT
There’s a pretty remarkable back story to this I’d like to tell one day soon, but for now, I need you to do me a favor. Watch this video and then, if you’re sold:
