Marc Dion: Do I Want to Be a Woman? Not With These Thighs. (Creators Syndicate)
My friends and I, who are cigar-smoking, unreconstructed working men, did not watch the interview with Bruce Jenner during which he talked about his wish to become a woman, or very nearly a woman. But we talked about it, in our own way.

Ted Rall: Two Stories in the Same Day Show That the U.S. Is Rotten to the Core (Creators Syndicate)
David Petraeus, former hotshot media-darling general of the Bush and early Obama years, received a slap on the wrist - probation plus a $100,000 fine - for improperly passing on classified military documents to unauthorized people and lying about it to federal agents when they questioned him about it.

Ted Rall: Baltimore Riots Were Caused By Capitalism and Cops, Not Poverty (Creators Syndicate)
Poverty, and the racism that goes with it, are features, not bugs. The ruling classes require a permanent underclass to exploit directly and serve as a warning to workers not to ask for big raises, shorter hours or other improvements in workplace conditions - be quiet, lest you wind up like them.

Lenore Skenazy: "Making Recess (Too) Safe" (Creators Syndicate)
No more running! That's the order the kids on the playground at Riverview Junior School in Kent, England, have just been given. The reason? They were getting too fit and happy. Ah, just messing with you. The reason, of course, is the one that should send a shiver up your spine every time you hear it: It's for the safety of the children.

Lenore Skenazy: A Crazy Idea to Bring Back Childhood (Creators Syndicate)
For the past five years, the movement that I founded, Free-Range Kids, has been promoting Take Our Children to the Park ... And Leave Them There Day. This year, in honor of the Meitivs of Maryland - the parents being investigated by Child Protective Services for letting their kids walk home from the park - we are encouraging kids to walk home on their own, too.

Froma Harrop: On the Internet, Nobody Knows You're a Fraud (Creators Syndicate)
There's been some tense back-and-forth over the Canadian mother who said she had stopped opposing vaccinations after all seven of her kids came down with whooping cough. Some say we should loudly thank Tara Hills for publicly disowning her anti-vax campaign. Others - me, for instance - are feeling less grateful.

27 Blatant Lies Advertisers Were Caught Using In Ads (Cracked)
These days everyone knows that you can't take advertisements at face value. Photoshop, misleading wording, deliberate omission of certain facts -- all frequent techniques that advertisers use to toe the line while they're pushing their product down your throat. Of course, sometimes that toe crosses the line -- or rather, sometimes a company blows that line away with a bazooka. With the help of the Don Draper of image manipulation AuntieMeme, here are those companies with egg on their face with a bazooka in hand.

Marilynn Preston: Choose to Be Happy? Yes You Can! (Creators Syndicate)
Our minds are hard-wired to attach to the negative, to see the world as a dark and threatening place because that gave us a survival advantage in days gone-by. These days, that evolutionary tendency keeps many of us stressed and anxious.

Trivia Question of the Day

The process for packaging 'wine in a box' was invented by Thomas Angove, a winemaker from what country?

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question from Yesterday

A turophile is a connoisseur of ____?____

      Cheese                                                      Source

Definition of TUROPHILE : a connoisseur of cheese : a cheese fancier        Source

Charlie was first, and correct, with:

  From an article in The Atlantic on MIT computer scientist Edward Fredkin:
        In addition to being a self-made millionaire, Fredkin is a self-made intellectual. Twenty years ago, at the age of thirty-four, without so much as a bachelor's degree to his name, he became a full professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Though hired to teach computer science, and then selected to guide MIT's now eminent computer-science laboratory through some of its formative years, he soon branched out into more-offbeat things. Perhaps the most idiosyncratic of the courses he has taught is one on "digital physics," in which he propounded the most idiosyncratic of his several idiosyncratic theories. This theory is the reason I've come to Fredkin's island. It is one of those things that a person has to be prepared for. The preparer has to say, "Now, this is going to sound pretty weird, and in a way it is, but in a way it's not as weird as it sounds, and you'll see this once you understand it, but that may take a while, so in the meantime don't prejudge it, and don't casually dismiss it." Ed Fredkin thinks that the universe is a computer.
  But then
        Fredkin reports that revered MIT physicist Phillip Morrison once said of him, "Ed Fredkin is a computer person, therefore he believes that the universe is actually a computer. If Fredkin was a cheese merchant he might be telling you that the universe is made up out of cheese."

     The only reason these women were "found", is that Boko Haram is done with them; they no longer play a part in their long-term strategy. They've won their objective from kidnapping them in the first place; raping them/ indoctrinating /terrorizing them, thus rendering them beyond what their families/communities are capable of accepting/absorbing. They were commodities that once had value; now they are a liability.; used merchandise that neither side wants. Too sick for words...

from Marc Perkel


Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Statue In Peoria

Richard Pryor

A yearslong effort to honour comedian Richard Pryor with a statue in Peoria is coming to a conclusion and prompting some residents of his hometown to re-examine the comic and his legacy.

Sculptor Preston Jackson will unveil the 9-foot bronze statue Sunday in the city's Warehouse District at the corner of Washington and State Streets.

For nearly nine years, Jackson has dedicated himself to seeing the statue stand in Peoria, the city where the comedian and actor was born and raised that's 125 miles southwest of Chicago. Pryor died in 2005.

He got the money he needed thanks to a November benefit organized by comedian and talk show host George Lopez that raised enough to cover the $130,000 cost of the project.

'F-k the Media'

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman had strong words for the media on Baltimore coverage, and called networks out for zooming in on places like Baltimore only when they see fire.

"F-k the media," he told the Daily Beast in an interview published Thursday, and complained about the big three cable networks' bias.

"Look at MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN. Go between those three. There's a take, there's a take, and there's a take. It's just commentary. CNN wants to be pure news, but the others are just commentary. They're just commenting on things."

On Baltimore coverage, Freeman says the media's been better than the very one-sided Ferguson coverage.

Police Groups Object To Art

'Don't Shoot'

Police advocacy groups in Wisconsin on Friday objected to a painting displayed at the Madison Public Library that shows an African-American boy pointing a toy gun at three riot police officers who have their weapons aimed at the child, calling it inflammatory and biased.

Artist Mike Lroy said the piece - acrylic and spray paint on canvas, entitled "Don't Shoot" - is meant to stir emotion and provoke reflection.

The Wisconsin Professional Police Association and the Madison Professional Police Officers Association issued a joint statement saying they are "deeply troubled" by the artwork.

Lroy defended his art.

Ancient Mayan City Built on Grid


An ancient Mayan city followed a unique grid pattern, providing evidence of a powerful ruler, archaeologists working at Nixtun-Ch'ich' in Petén, Guatemala, have found.

The city, which contains flat-topped pyramids, was in use between roughly 600 B.C. and 300 B.C., a time when the first cities were being constructed in the area. No other city from the Maya world was planned using this grid design, researchers say. This city was "organized in a way we haven't seen in other places," said Timothy Pugh, a professor at Queens College in New York.

The ancient Mexican city of Teotihuacan also used a grid system. But that city is not considered to be Mayan, and so far archaeologists have found no connections between it and the one at Nixtun-Ch'ich', Pugh said.

People living in the area have known of the Nixtun-Ch'ich' site for a long time. Pugh started research on it in 1995 and has been concentrating on Mayan remains that date to a much later time period,long after the early city was abandoned. However, in the process of studying these later remains, his team has been able to map the early city and even excavate a bit of it.

Pope Reinforces Racist History


Pope Francis defended an 18th-century Spanish priest on Saturday from accusations he brutalized Native Americans in missionary work that helped lay the foundations for the Catholic Church in the United States.

The pope intends to declare Father Junipero Serra a saint at a Mass celebrated at the National Shrine in Washington on Sept 23 during his U.S. visit.

The Franciscan missionary built a series of missions along the Pacific coast in the latter 18th century, in what is now California, to spread the faith among Native Americans there.

"He was one of the founding fathers of the United States, a saintly example of the Church's universality and special patron of the Hispanic people of the country," the Argentine-born pope said in the homily at a Mass in Rome's Pontifical North American College.

How the Tea Bag Was Invented


Testifies For 2nd Day

Sheldon Adelson

Casino mogul and prominent Republican donor Sheldon Adelson testified Friday he isn't sure where he was when he and his second-in-command at the time crafted a list of reasons to fire Sands China's chief executive in 2010.

Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands and one of the world's richest men, told a Clark County courtroom he could have been in a plane flying over the Pacific Ocean or at any of his homes in Southern California, Israel, Boston or Las Vegas.

It's that last location that's important in an ongoing wrongful termination lawsuit, and the reason for Adelson's testimony.

Since the case involves a foreign company, lawyers representing fired executive Steven Jacobs first must argue it should proceed in Clark County. Jacobs contends he was fired for attempting to expose a host of misdeeds by Adelson and the companies.

Adelson is worth a reported $28.1 billion, making him the 18th richest man in the world, according to Forbes. He is known for spending more than $100 million in the 2012 presidential election to back first Newt Gingrich and later Mitt Romney.

Taser Kickbacks

New Mexico

Albuquerque's former police chief accepted perks and consulting work from Taser International as he helped the company land a lucrative no-bid contract to supply officers with body cameras, the New Mexico state auditor said Thursday.

Ray Schultz committed "substantial violations" of city and state ethics laws in his dealings with Taser and prosecutors should determine whether to bring criminal charges, State Auditor Tim Keller said. A yearlong review of the city's handling of the $1.95 million contract found "rampant disregard for all of those things that protect our taxpayer dollars," Keller said.

Schultz is now assistant police chief in Memorial Villages, Texas. His attorney, Luis Robles, said Schultz didn't do anything wrong, adding that the city budget office led the procurement process and his successor made the final decision to award the contract.

Brought in as a reformer in 2005, Schultz stepped down in 2013 under a cloud of bad morale and an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice into alleged civil rights violations and questionable police shootings. He has said his departure wasn't linked to those problems, and supporters have praised him for innovative policing.

WW2 Bombs


The danger of unexploded World War Two aerial bombs lurking in the soil still haunts Germany 70 years after the war ended on May 8, 1945, exploding without warning or surfacing after frost.

More than 2,000 tonnes of live bombs and munitions are found each year in Germany, even under buildings. They are defused or detonated in controlled blasts but not before causing disruption, evacuations or sometimes even death.

About 56 tonnes of unexploded ordnance were retrieved last year in Berlin, the prime target of British and American aerial bombs that was further devastated by Soviet artillery and grenades during the climactic Battle of Berlin 70 years ago.

The country was pummeled by 1.5 million tonnes of bombs from British and American warplanes that killed 600,000 people. German officials estimate 15 percent of the bombs failed to explode, some burrowing six meters deep.

Rebuilt Slave Sites Unveiled


The first log slave quarters with dirt floors to be rebuilt at Thomas Jefferson's home were formally unveiled Saturday at Monticello, and descendants of more than 100 slaves from the third president's plantation marked the occasion in Virginia.

Re-creating structures to represent slave life at the home of the author of the Declaration of Independence is part of a larger restoration effort underway to show a fuller history at Monticello. In addition, nine rooms on the upper floors of the mansion that were previously empty have now been furnished to give visitors a deeper look at Jefferson's family and what life was like in 1809.

The project was launched two years ago with a $10 million gift from Washington philanthropist David Rubenstein. On Friday night, Rubenstein announced a second $10 million gift to continue the work of restoring slave sites along the plantation's Mulberry Row and refreshing some of the iconic rooms in Jefferson's home.

The newly rebuilt slave quarters include a storehouse for iron where Isaac Granger Jefferson worked as a slave in the 1790s. Nearby, a 12-by-14-foot dwelling was rebuilt to represent where members of the Hemings family lived. Most historians believe Sally Hemings, a slave, had a romantic relationship with Jefferson and that he was the father of her six children.
