    I figured you’d get my, never a fact I couldn’t ignore, “momma-grizzley,” allusion closing the comment.

    I’m not making light of the problem, this topic just irks me to the point of needing a small relief valve just to contemplate it. Thanks for putting this together.

    A heads up, NPR – All Things Considered is broadcasting a feature later this afternoon on police shootings. They’ll certainly have all the facts. You betcha now hey.

    And of course City cooperation and transparency about the events, well not so much.

  • Western Great Lakes Region here, first days in a month of near 80˚F temps, no wind, spectacular breaking Autumn colors, putting garden food by for winter, required priority, I do read here but cannot always be here to comment or question. Thank you all.

    Fresh pair of rechargable AA’s in the Nikon P50. Autumn colors in a perfect mix of subtle shades of fading greens and the first bursts of reds and orange mix.

    Morning music anyone?

    Some kind of ecstasy……..

  • 1:48:00 Audience participation the lady speaking about the TPP resembled her. Just an observation last evening finishing a small glass of wine. Not that important who it was I guess, but the message was important. Thanks.

  • Anyone besides me think that the person with the microphone at approximately 1:47 was Dr Margaret Flower? have to go back to the moment there.

    McKibben needs a long rest or professional intervention. Klein ruffled no feathers, book sales pending. Sawant, on point on target, with every breath. Hedges will be himself, truth to power, clear and concise. Sanders, Bernie, you have a retirement account, most of us never will.

    Brandon thanks for bringing the video.

    Enjoying big fat leeks, cool weather greens, squashes, potatoes, beets, the first of sweet fall carrots and parsnips, and am drying bundles of herbs. Also picking some nice wild apples and a few more goodies. Last of the cucs are a pickling in crocks. Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel and this morning the NYT both misreporting the “halted,” [...]

    Truth is Democrats are as much in the bag with corporate patrons as the Republicans. Local state assembly candidate, supposedly for teachers, failed to utter any of the three words, “for strengthening unions,” at an event sponsored by retired teachers last week. No actual political will to take or even support preventive action that can [...]

    Good afternoon, Ruth

    As I said previously, summer arrived about a week ago, taking a bread baking and laundry break, back outside soon for the sun and no rain for 7 whole days so far.

    Missed the Holder rez, could possibility of the replacement as a recess appointment be the reason for the timing?

    Good Afternoon,

    First of Autumn, first day of normal summer weather. Leaves changing, migratory birds on the move. Just outside this week. Unavoidable. The best.

    Just neglected to mention it in that comment. I’d have them undergo psychiatric exams too, but I need to be careful not to give the wingers any more ideas. Thanks.

    Already profitable and well paid CEO’s who’ve donated to the Walker campaign will still be able to get further corporate tax breaks, ($1.8B thus far) without showing an ID.

    Later people, my morning brunch is nearly over, be good, be well.

    Hoping the ACLU is appealing for a stay for at least the Nov election, looking for news in a bit on that. Saw a blogger who wrote that Walker and several others running, didn’t need to show an ID when they filed their noninating petion signatures and forms to run for office. Our State Senator [...]

    Walker’s announced fix for his manufactured budget deficit for the next biennium, drug test before receipt of unemployment compensation or any public assistance for anything. Morning diners, it is not raining at the moment and will be near 65F for a high today. I also remembered my FDL login password, other good news is sparse. [...]

    Calls to my US legislators were not answered personally by anyone as I am not on the registered lobbyist list. Will have to try their home numbers in our district. I am with you on how this should be handled by the FCC but following common sense is soooooo yesterday’s news. Another day and another [...]

    Nothing more annoying than animated gifs. I cannot read the top of the piece. An assault on my perceptive senses, not sure who thought to put it in there. Someone wanting me to avoid their website, just needs to place auto-music or auto-gif and I am gone.
