Paul Krugman: The Donald and the Veg-O-Matic (NY Times Blog)
… too many anti-Trump critics seem to have settled on one critique that happens not to be right: the claim that a turn to protectionism would cause vast job losses. Sorry, that's just not a claim justified by either theory or history. Protectionism reduces world exports, but it also reduces world imports, so that the effect on overall demand is a wash; textbook economic models just don't say what conventional wisdom is asserting here. History doesn't support this line of attack either.

Anonymous, Amanda Madden: "I Weigh 500+ Pounds: 5 Realities Of Extreme Obesity (Cracked)
Society has long mocked fat people -- as if we don't all intrinsically understand that burritos are delicious and exercise is stupid. Truly, it's only there but for the grace of god and genetics, go we. To find out what it's actually like to live with morbid obesity, we talked to Rachel. At over 500 pounds, she's medically classified as (no joke) "super super obese," like she's some kind of bizarre superhero. We also talked to Dr. Arya Sharma and Dr. Stephanie Cassin, whose work has focused on the physical and psychological realities of severe obesity.

Henry Rollins: America Is In for a Long, Hot, Violent Summer (LA Weekly)
In one of the more humorous strokes of the WWW, a faux petition was posted, urgently pushing for permission to carry weapons into the RNC love fest in Cleveland in July. The writing was so funny, it sounded like a moment out of Colbert's Comedy Central show. The best comedy always gets to the truth.

Lucia Graves: The Kesha ruling is offensive, dismissive and utterly predictable (The Guardian)
The technical arguments and callous language used to decide Kesha's case will be familiar to every woman who's brought a charge of sexual assault.

Time on the US publicity trail with British author Sarah Bakewell revealed enduring angst about Sartre, de Beauvoir and the meaning of freedom itself.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This actor, who starred in three television series, spanning four decades, was born either John Lincoln Freund or Jacob Lincoln Freund. By what name is he more famously known?

       John Forsythe                                                      Source

John Forsythe (born either John Lincoln Freund or Jacob Lincoln Freund; January 29, 1918 - April 1, 2010) was an American stage, television, and film actor. Forsythe starred in three television series, spanning four decades and three genres: as single playboy father Bentley Gregg, in the sitcom Bachelor Father (1957-62); as the unseen millionaire, Charles Townsend, on the crime drama Charlie's Angels (1976-81); and as patriarch Blake Carrington on Dynasty (1981-89). He hosted World of Survival (1971-77).        Source

Deborah replied:
   Oh, I know this one - John Forsythe.
  Rain yesterday forced me off my bike and into retail stores to find a dress for our daughter's upcoming nuptials. It was painful. There are a lot of ugly fashion choices out there. But I persevered and found 2, so now I'm set. That, and the taxes done (had to pay the feds, dagnabbit), are a great relief. I may take a nap to celebrate.
  More rain today; it's wonderful.

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcaliful said:
   "Bachelor Father", John Forsythe. Wow, it stopped raining…back to spring for a few days…not quippy at all right now…I'll be back to fucking normal in a few days…weeks…never!

Lois Of Oregon answered:
   John Forsythe was a groundbreaking actor whose work in early television, specifically in "Bachelor Father", paved the way for a whole new genre of suggestive situation comedy plots wherein an unmarried individual is trapped in the oh-so-amusing situation of raising a child under the guise of "niece" or "nephew", like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck, but fooled NOBODY, because we all KNOW those are your bastards! He then invented the concept of "phoning it in", as the mysterious guy who for some reason pays three models to do some kind of stuff or other for some reason (I never watched that show), and finally, helped to destroy the public airways with some shitty night-time soap opera about an obnoxious bunch of rich fucks, which I also never watched.

Slams Sacha Baron Cohen

Brian May

Queen's Brian May has blasted actor Sacha Baron Cohen after he allegedly pulled out of making a biopic about singer Freddie Mercury.

The legendary guitarist has never been one to mince his words, and now Cohen has felt his wrath over the inaccuracies in the proposed film.

May revealed he was furious at the 'Grimsby' star after the comments he made to Howard Stern in a radio interview in regards to the reason he left the project.

"I said, 'Listen, not one person is going to see a movie where the lead character dies from AIDS and then you see the band carry on,'" the comedian controversially explained.

Obviously the comments wouldn't be taken too kindly by May or fellow surviving bandmates Roger Taylor and John Deacon, and he wasn't holding back when he spoke to Event magazine: "Sacha became an a**e. We had some nice times with Sacha kicking around ideas but he went off and told untruths about what happened. Why would he go away and say that we didn't want to make a gritty film?"

World's Count Rising

Wild Tigers

The world's count of wild tigers roaming forests from Russia to Vietnam has gone up for the first time in more than a century, with some 3,890 counted by conservation groups and national governments in the latest global census, wildlife conservation groups said Monday.

The tally marks a turnaround from the last worldwide estimate in 2010, when the number of tigers in the wild hit an all-time low of about 3,200, according to the World Wildlife Fund and the Global Tiger Forum.

India alone holds more than half of them, with 2,226 tigers roaming reserves across the country, from the southern tip of Kerala state to the eastern swamps in West Bengal, according to its last count in 2014.

But while experts said the news was cause for celebration, they stopped short of saying the number of tigers itself was actually rising. In other words, it may just be that experts are aware of more tigers, thanks to the fact that survey methods are improving and more areas are being included.

Still, this is the first time tiger counts are increasing since 1900, when there were more than 100,000 tigers in the wild.

Friars Club Hosts 90th Birthday

Jerry Lewis

At the Friars Club tribute for Jerry Lewis' 90th birthday, many of the jokes were not about Jerry Lewis.

There were R-rated wisecracks Friday night about Donald Trump, Monica Lewinsky, doctors, sex and growing old from speakers including Richard Belzer, Freddie Roman and Max Alexander. When the subject did turn to Lewis, the kidding around turned to praise as Lewis was honored as a comic master, inspiration, and, for Belzer, a savior.

About 200 people squeezed into the first floor dining room for the 90-minute event. Lewis, whose birthday was last month, sat to the side of the dais, where he laughed and cried.

The Friars Club has long been like a second home for Lewis, whose name appears on the front of the building and whose pictures hang inside. Before the tribute, he sipped on a soda in the first floor bar, otherwise known as the Billy Crystal Room, and dined upstairs with such friends as Robert De Niro and Jim Carrey. A birthday card in the lobby was signed by comedian Gilbert Gottfried and former "Saturday Night Live" writer Alan Zweibel, among others.

The tribute touched upon many of the highlights of Lewis' long and singular career, from his partnership with Dean Martin to such movies as "The Nutty Professor" and his stage performance in "Damn Yankees." A compilation of pre-taped greetings included Steven Spielberg, Al Pacino and Don Rickles, who urged Lewis "to go to bed early."

Panama Papers


A cellist friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin named in the Panama Papers as owning a $2-billion offshore empire was portrayed as a humble patron of the arts Sunday, in a state TV programme in which he said he helps hundreds of musicians.

Sergei Roldugin, an acclaimed musician who has known Putin since the 1970s, hit the spotlight when details emerged of his ownership of offshore firms dealing with Russian state companies, part of a vast leak of millions of documents known as the Panama Papers.

The Papers revealed that Putin's associates, notably Roldugin, "secretly shuffled as much as $2 billion (1.75 billion euros) through banks and shadow companies," according to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

"Everything is expensive, instruments are expensive, professors are expensive... Everything is outrageously expensive," Roldugin said as he showed the reporter stuccoed ceilings, parquet floors and a Stradivari cello.

But the idea that Roldugin spent the money on buying instruments overseas drew ridicule from Russia's opposition, and Vedomosti daily reported that Russia only imported $50 million worth of musical instruments in 2015.

Prosecutors Detail Sordid Abuse


Former House speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Sweaty Wrestler™), once among America's most esteemed political figures, faced more public disgrace after prosecutors revealed sordid details of alleged sex abuse while he was a high school teacher and wrestling coach.

Hastert allegedly molested boys as young as 14 and agreed to make secret payments totaling $3.5 million to one victim. It is a precipitous fall from grace for a man once second in line to the presidency.

On Saturday, Hastert's lawyer said his client acknowledged he had committed past "transgressions," but declined to describe those acts.

Hastert's abuse consisted of "intentional touching of minors' groin area and genitals or oral sex with a minor," according to prosecutors, who condemned Hastert's "stunning hypocrisy."

The 74-year-old Republican lobbyist pleaded guilty in October to illegally structuring bank withdrawals over four and a half years that prosecutors identified as hush money.

Reactivated Following Spill In South Dakota

Keystone Pipeline

Oil is flowing once again through the Keystone pipeline after a leak in South Dakota caused a shutdown that lasted more than a week.

TransCanada says in a news release that the cross-border line was restarted Sunday following permission that was granted by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration in the U.S.

The company says the line will operate at a reduced pressure as part of the plan that was approved to return it to service.

The leak, which was reported April 2, let over 63,000 litres of oil seep into a South Dakota field in Hutchinson County.

Usurped Name Of Red Cross To Hide Money

Mossack Fonseca

The law firm at the center of the Panama offshore accounts scandal routinely usurped the name of the Red Cross and other charities to help obscure the origin of millions of dollars in questionable funds, two newspapers involved in the investigation reported Sunday.

There's no suggestion that the charitable groups had any idea their name was being used in this way. International Committee of the Red Cross spokeswoman Claire Kaplun told The Associated Press on Sunday that the revelation was "a total surprise and something we find extremely shocking."

France's Le Monde and Switzerland's Le Matin Dimanche said Mossack Fonseca created dummy foundations with high-minded names such as the "Faith Foundation" to hold shares in around 500 offshore companies. The foundation's beneficiary was routinely listed as "the Red Cross," a designation which served the dual purposes of hiding the firms' real beneficiaries and of draping them in an "NGO aura," the papers wrote.

Mossack Fonseca didn't immediately return an email seeking comment, but a leaked email cited by the publications appeared to lay out the firm's reasoning.

Another email cited by the papers suggests Mossack Fonseca deliberately kept the Red Cross in the dark about the maneuver.

Expels American Researcher


Authorities in Democratic Republic of Congo have expelled a prominent American researcher weeks after he published a report linking soldiers to the massacres of civilians, the government and the researcher's organization said on Saturday.

Jason Stearns, the director of the Congo Research Group at New York University, was expelled from the country, to which he makes regular research visits, for making false declarations to immigration services, government spokesman Lambert Mende said.

The group said the reason given by authorities for Stearns' expulsion on Thursday was his "undesirability", and said the immigration irregularities were "minor procedural matters, which we are taking steps to address".

Its statement said the authorities referred to Stearns' report about the massacres, without giving further detail.

Last month's report said that soldiers in Congo's army had participated in massacres of civilians in the country's northeast since 2014, although it said it was unclear to what extent the military hierarchy was involved.

Weekend Box Office

'The Boss'

Step aside, Batman and Superman. Melissa McCarthy is "The Boss" at the box office now.

The actress' latest comedy narrowly topped "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" at the weekend box office with a $23.5 million debut, according to comScore estimates Sunday. "The Boss" stars McCarthy as an over-the-top business mogul attempting to rebound after being convicted of insider trading.

McCarthy's win wasn't a total knockout. The Warner Bros. superhero smackdown starring Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel nabbed $23.4 million in its third weekend. Despite poor reviews and word of mouth, "Batman v Superman" has earned an estimated $296.7 million to date.

Disney's "Zootopia" landed in third place with $14.4 million. In its sixth weekend, the animated film featuring the voices of Jason Bateman and Ginnifer Goodwin has earned a total domestic haul of $296 million.

The weekend's only other newcomer, STX Entertainment's first-person action romp "Hardcore Henry," opened in fifth place with a dismal $5.1 million.

    1. "The Boss," $23.5 million ($1 million international).
    2. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," $23.4 million ($34 million international).
    3. "Zootopia," $14.4 million ($ 22.7 million international).
    4. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," $6.4 million ($3.3 million international).
    5. "Hardcore Henry," $5.1 million.
    6. "Miracles From Heaven," $4.8 million ($1.1 million international).
    7. "God's Not Dead 2," $4.3 million.
    8. "The Divergent Series: Allegiant," $3.6 million.
    9. "10 Cloverfield Lane," $3 million ($6.2 million international).
   10. "Eye in the Sky," $2.8 million.
