A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Both of our senators in New Jersey voted against Sen. Sanders' drug pricing amendment. As much as Sen. Booker can be on the right side of things, he also has a troubling history w/r/t financial regulation and reigning in Big Pharma. ... For the last couple of months I've been getting calls on my cell phone from a Scientology Center in Los Angeles. Every fifth or sixth call, I answer by exclaiming, "I HAVE NO MONEY! FORGIVE ME, LORD XENU!" or something like that, and then hang up. I do this in a hallway at my job and hope that, through these outbursts, I am cultivating the reputation of office freakshow.

  Thu. 2/23/17 10:22am JakeGould:

"No Call" registries are a joke. They mostly just block you from someone explicitly contacting that exact number. But there is nothing stopping anyone for sequentially dialing numbers in an area code or region.

Most call centers for scams start dialing (for example) from 212-555-0001 to 212-555-9999. That is why robocalls and semi-automated calls still exist. Loopholes!

Yes - essentially their argument for Gun Deregulation devolves to the Constitutional Right to own weapons to challenge the Government - any kind of weapon @ all - & only if they were 'well-regulated' (...Not). That's if you interpreted it that way, rather than the U.S. has a Right to the Armed Forces. Which is - completely different. All the Gun nonsense that makes us different from the entire rest of the developed world is based on no more that this.
Of course - it would all only be to defend a Government that (even more fundamentally) Constitutionally "promotes the General Welfare" - I can only presume...

...& the Rights to Free Assembly, Religion - LIFE, Liberty & Happiness that we All have (gun owners or nay)...

It's all for political tomfoolery. The republicans know exactly what the bill of rights says but they're experts at filtering it to their purposes. Meanwhile the wishwashy liberals just react: "Hey, you can't do that. That's not fair!"

It's a harsh irony that the true lovers of Freedom are harder to Organize (as Julian Cope observed: the Romans marched in Straight Lines & built roads - the Celts favored Spirals...)

Forgot to mention earlier: thank you, Trouble, for the Anita Brookner recommendation. I finished "Latecomers" on the train this morning--really, really good! Reminded me a bit of Jane Gardam. Anyway, thank you!

2nd amendment: I have to reread the book I saw this in but in the 18th if you owned a gun, you had to serve in the well regulated militia, and most people didn't want to do that. So they generally didn't own guns.

Looking forward to the day I am well-informed enuff to not just say 'I love African Guitar' - altho' it is generally true!
The NRA was linked from the beginning to the KKK.

The Arthur Russell earlier got me to remembering - years ago when someone first introduced me to his music, I was all "What the huh?"

Now he's one of my favorite artists.

NRA is a self-obsessed band of yahoos that have done irreparable harm to this country based on their misinterpretation of the 2nd amendment. There's a special place in heck for all of them.

hey thanks SO MUCH for the heads up on HR 610! Unfortunately, our cretin representative in district 19 John faso won't hold town halls or even pick up his phone!! We have been petitioning him and this Fri. at noon we'll be gathering in numbers at his Kingston, NY office. Then at 6, we're holding a mock town hall. If any listeners are in Ulster, Orange, or Sullivan Counties feel the Bern, they should come out too! Thanks T

Previewed this LP in the library yesterday. SO good! Great show today Trouble!

@Priscilla: Me neither, especially historical fiction about a Cromwell (yuck). However, Mantel's "Wolf Hall" trilogy is fantastic!
@Trouble: Thank you!
