- Today's comic by Tom Tomorrow is Debating the coin:
- What you missed on Sunday Kos ...
- James Dobson goes crazy. Is this all the movement can offer, by Hunter
- Ghosts of War, then and now: Artist pays homage to Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, by Susan Gardner
- The War on Drugs is a war on people, by Denise Oliver Velez
- The problem is not John Brennan. It's us, by Laurence Lewis
- 100,000 cops, by Jon Perr
- California: back in the black with progressive governance, by Dante Atkins
- Apparently Aqua Buddha II wasn't just drunk:
After his arrest last week, the son of U.S. Senator Rand Paul faces a new charge.
Sheriff's officials in Charlotte confirm to WDRB News there's an active warrant for William Paul's arrest on a new charge of assault on a female by aggravated physical force.
A sheriff's official says the circumstances are unclear but that it likely stems from his arrest on January 5th at the Charlotte airport.
- Since there is no museum of idiotic Republicans, the Maine State Museum will have to do:
Nearly two years after Gov. Paul LePage had a mural depicting Maine labor history removed from the lobby of the Department of Labor building, the artwork resurfaced Monday at its new home: the Maine State Museum.
- Go figure:
One of the great political shifts in the past decade has been the move of scientists toward the Democratic Party, a casualty of the Republican Party’s war on reality. It’s not about politics for scientists, it’s about the fact that only one party accepts scientific findings on everything from global warming to evolutionary theory to what does and doesn’t prevent pregnancy. Only 6 percent of scientists identify as Republican, whereas 55 percent identify as Democratic.
- Expect a petition to deport Miss America any day now:
On Saturday, beauty pageant contestants learned that if she gives a thoughtful answer on gun control during a high profile pageant--she will be vilified for it. Here's what the New Miss America, Mallory Hytes Hagan of New York, said about the issue.
I don’t think the proper way to fight violence is with violence. I think the proper way is to educate people on guns and the ways that we can use them properly. We can lock them up, we can have gun safety classes, we can have a longer waiting period. The answer is not to fight violence with violence, however.The response from the winguttia was swift.
The conservative Media Research Center (MRC) blasted her answer, writing that she was “espousing liberal conventional wisdom on guns” while ridiculing her for supposedly suggesting that “law enforcement officers carrying guns fuels violence.”
Commenters on MRC’s website agreed ...
- Condolences to family and friends:
Eugene Patterson, a journalist who crusaded for civil rights in American society and higher standards in America's newsrooms, died Saturday after a long illness.
The former editor, chairman and chief executive officer of the Times was 89. [...]
In the early 1960s, Mr. Patterson wrote courageous columns for the Atlanta Constitution exhorting whites to acknowledge their responsibility for the racial fracture of the South. His most famous piece ran after four young black girls died in the Birmingham church bombing in 1963.
"If our South is ever to be what we wish it to be," he wrote, "we will plant a flower of nobler resolve for the South now upon these four small graves that we dug."
- Not the best quality, but an interesting blast from the past:
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin returns! The reality story of guns continues, with more of the most regularly predictable "unexpected" flukes, mishaps, and unimaginable coincidences ending in accidental shootings. We also broke our all-time record for mentions of the word "penis," but you knew that'd happen eventually. Plus, two other multi-layered gun-related stories: the lack of data about guns and the political machinations behind it, and; what it means that you can't have an "educational" discussion with a gun ultra.
