Henry Rollins: Want to See Humanity at Its Best? Go to a Music Festival (LA Weekly)
It is my opinion that festivals make life better and actually have cultural and societal impact. I am glad that so many summer festivals have been popping up on the American landscape. People gathering to dig music at a small club or in a massive field is so much better than a gun battle anywhere.

On Friday, brothers Gary and Paul O'Donovan won Ireland's first medal of the Rio de Janeiro Games, coming in second to a French duo in the lightweight double sculls. Paul O'Donovan said after the race, "We put it up to the French as best we could." Gary added, "But to come away with a silver medal, we have to be happy." These are the only boring things the O'Donovan brothers have said since arriving in Rio.

   Sorry I'm so late. We got up early, met with 2 friends and rode 44 miles from Solano Co. to Napa Co. and back, then picked up one of those friends and her non-cycling hubby and drove the scenic route to St. Helena, to our favorite winery (shout-out to V. Sattui) to pick up a case of futures we ordered 2+ years ago. My normal routine is to check out a couple local newspapers, then BartCopE!, answer the TQ, and move on. Now that dinner is done, wine put away, dishes are done, I'm watching the track and field competition and catching up on my usual routine now.
  There's a big fire NW of here, near Clear Lake, where a huge fire burned last year. This is new burn. People were evacuated. I hope CalFire has it under control by now.

   It's Neil Diamond, i knew that. Carla told me about Diamond a few years ago, I didn't believe her at the time. But, as always, she was right.

Super Bowl


British singer Adele shut down rumours Saturday that she could be next year's performer for the Super Bowl Halftime show.

"I'm not doing the Super Bowl," she told the audience at her sixth of eight sold-out concerts in Los Angeles yesterday. "I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really - I don't dance or anything like that."

The 28-year-old songstress, who's currently on a world tour following the release of her latest album 25, was rumoured a week ago in a British tabloid to be performing at the 2017 sporting event.

Adele said she was approached but turned down the offer.

"They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no."

Farmers Eyeing Hops


With the state's iconic citrus industry reeling due to a so-far incurable bacterial disease, some Florida farmers are eyeing a new niche crop that can tap into the country's burgeoning beer-brewing business: hops.

Hops are vining plants that produce pungent flowers or buds that for hundreds of years have been used by brewers as the building blocks of a beer's flavor and aroma. The acids in hops produce bitterness, and the plants' oils give beer a floral or citrusy aroma, depending on the plant.

Traditionally, Florida was considered too hot and humid to grow hops - most varieties are grown in Germany and other European countries with cooler climates, while 95 percent of hops grown in the U.S. come from Washington and other Pacific Northwest states. An explosion of craft breweries in the U.S. has pushed demand sky high, and as a result, shortages of popular hop varieties are common for smaller breweries, which compete with much larger ones for the same supply.

Three years ago, home-brewing horticulturist Brian Pearson of the University of Florida decided he wanted fresh hops and began doing his own research on what he could grow. He started with a few plants in a small wooden shed, and that has since grown into hundreds of plants and a hope that Florida may have found a new cash crop.

Lawyers Up

Thomas Gibson

Thomas Gibson has retained legal services to possibly pursue a lawsuit over his firing from Criminal Minds last week, ET has learned.

Skip Miller of Los Angeles-based law firm Miller Barondess confirmed to ET that his firm is representing Gibson.

The action comes after the 54-year-old actor was let go from the show following an incident which allegedly involved Gibson kicking a writer in the leg during an on-set disagreement.

The actor played FBI agent Aaron Hotchner on the CBS crime series since its debut in 2005.

Turns To Girls


The U.S. Marine Corps is looking for a few more good women.

And this time the campaign is a bit different. Marine recruiters are turning to girls high school sports teams to find candidates who may be able to meet the Corps' rigorous physical standards, including for the front-line combat jobs now open to women.

Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller says he wants to increase the number of women in the Corps to 1 in 10.

"I've told them that 10 percent is where we want to go and they're working on it," Neller told The Associated Press in an interview. "Go recruit more women. Find them. They're out there."

For years, only about 7 percent to 8 percent of the Corps, which numbers 184,200, has been women. It's the smallest percentage of women among all the military services. But on the heels of the Pentagon decision to allow women who qualify to serve in combat jobs, thousands of new infantry, armor and other front-line posts are now open.

Won't Take Blame

Pink Panty Sheriff

The sheriff of metropolitan Phoenix refused during a recent deposition to accept responsibility for bringing a failed animal cruelty case against the college-age son of a U.S. senator over the heat-exhaustion deaths of 21 dogs at a kennel operated by his in-laws.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R-Above The Law) gave the pretrial testimony in a lawsuit by Sen. Jeff Flake's son, who alleges the lawman injured his reputation by repeatedly publicizing trumped-up accusations over the 2014 animal deaths. A copy of the July 14 depositions was publicly released this week by Flake's lawyer, despite objections from the sheriff.

Austin Flake and his then-wife, Logan, were in charge of the dogs while his in-laws were out of town. The in-laws initially said the animals died after a dog chewed through an air conditioning wire.

But prosecutors dismissed the felony animal cruelty charges against the couple after an expert determined the kennel's AC unit failed because it wasn't properly maintained. Prosecutors have said the case presented to grand jurors didn't take into account the potential for problems with the air conditioner. The in-laws have since pleaded guilty to an animal cruelty charge.

The younger Flake's malicious-prosecution lawsuit alleges that Arpaio pursued the investigation to gain publicity and do political damage to the senator, who criticized an investigation by a sheriff's volunteer posse into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate. Arpaio has denied the allegations.

Sharia Law


The Wyoming Supreme Court is set to hear arguments next week on whether a Pinedale judge who has said she wouldn't perform same-sex marriages because of her religious beliefs should be removed from office.

Ruth Neely in April filed a petition asking the court to reject a recommendation from the Wyoming Commission on Judicial Conduct and Ethics that she lose her posts as a municipal judge and circuit court magistrate.

The commission started an investigation of Neely after she told a reporter in 2014 she would not perform same-sex marriages because of her religious beliefs. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that same-sex couples nationwide may marry.

Attempts to reach Neely and her attorneys, including the Alliance Defending Freedom, an Arizona religious advocacy law firm, were not successful on Friday. Neely is not a lawyer.

In fighting removal, Neely argues that she has a constitutional right to voice her opinion. Her lawyers have said no same-sex couples have asked her to preside over their weddings. She's currently suspended from the circuit court post.

Horse Auction


Sales at a famed horse auction on a remote state-run farm in eastern Poland on Sunday were much lower this year, with some potential buyers staying away after the country's right-wing government carried out a controversial political purge of managers in the respected Arabian horse breeding program.

An 11-year-old grey mare, Sefora, sold for 300,000 euros ($335,000) at the Pride of Poland auction, but many of the 31 horses in the sale at all found no buyers at all, failing to reach required minimum prices.

Organizers raised about 1.3 million euros ($1.45 million), far below the 2-2.5 million they had sought, money critical to the survival of the enterprise. At last year's auction, one mare, Pepita, sold for 1.4 million euros alone and the sale raised 4.6 million euros - though that was a highly unusual result and not the norm.

The farm at Janow Podlaski is set amid lush meadows near the border with Belarus and has for decades drawn film directors and rock stars, Arab sheikhs and other millionaires seeking some of the world's finest Arabian horses.

The firing of three managers came as the ruling Law and Justice party has brought other widespread changes to the country, including a weakening of the judiciary that has brought international concern over the state of Poland's democracy, and the fate of the prized Arabian breeding program had come to stand as a symbol of those deep changes.

A Strategy

Unorthodox Ballot Names

Candidates for political office typically want to show voters who they are and where they stand. But if they don't belong to a traditional political party, demonstrating their ideology and political principles on the ballot can be a challenge.

A mayoral candidate in Pawtucket, Rhode Island will have the phrase "Sick of Scandals" next to his name on the ballot this fall. Rhode Island is one of several states that give unaffiliated candidates some space on the ballot to list a political organization or philosophy. In other states, candidates have gone as far as legally changing their names to express their views.

The state of Washington gives a lot of leeway to candidates in how they define themselves, which is how a candidate was once able to run on the Salmon Yoga Party.

New York's Rent is Too Damn High Party ran into trouble because of the state's 15-letter limit on party labels. After state officials dropped the word 'damn,' which the party's founder thought was needed for emphasis, the party restored its full name in 2010 by using "2'' instead of "too."

Chief Wana Dubie lost his bid to be a U.S. senator from Missouri. Perennial presidential candidate Vermin Supreme, who wears a boot on his head and has advocated for free ponies, came in fourth in this year's New Hampshire's Democratic primary. A perennial anti-abortion candidate in Idaho has legally changed his name to "Pro-Life."

How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
