Working diligently to address some of the misconceptions about the union kerfluffel out in the Midwest. My favorite development has been the demonization of the Koch brothers. I guess every protest must have its evil hate machine to rally against. The right has Soros, the left, the Kochs. What’s fascinating is that there’s still this crazy idea that big business in this corner wearing Koch brother colors is somehow funding all the candidates on the right and the union MUST fight back in order to level the field. Except that field has in recent years been tilted to the left. Rachel Maddow still does — and apparently always will — need to check her facts. You know, that’s one of the first things a journalist learns. And most get burned at least once by not doing it. So, Rachel, what’s going on with that…? In any event, Dave Weigel at Slate has a great piece about what’s going on. I like him as a writer because he writes things like this: “she made scare quotes with her fingers.”
Anyway, also working on posting a film review to a new site (for me) that’s giving me a shot as a contributor. If they approve the piece, I’ll link it. Hopefully, more on that later.
Speaking of Charleston, via C. Bailey, this just makes my life. Because it’s Carl, man! Also, Georgia girls must support other Georgia girls. It’s a law down there.
And this is, in fact, my new desktop wallpaper. And I laugh every time I open my computer. As one should.
Here’s your soul. Don’t lose it.
