Paul Krugman: Hypocritical Sloth (NY Times)
(As someone pointed out, both Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton have rejected policies they used to support - but Romney has rejected policies that worked, while Clinton has rejected policies that didn't. A bit of a difference.)


Marc Dion: Wanna Hear a Biker Joke? (Creators Syndicate)
One hundred and seventy bikers were arrested in Waco, Texas. Of those arrested, 30 were fat guys nicknamed "Tiny." Also arrested were a couple "Gypsies," several "Ray-Rays," a "Buzzard," a number of guys nicknamed "Porky," "Killer," "Spider," and on an odd note, one guy whose nickname is "Beyonce."


Ted Rall: Hillary Clinton's Life of Crime (Creators Syndicate)
Bill and Hillary Clinton "earned" - can a mortal earn such stratospheric sums? - "at least $30 million over the last 16 months, mainly from giving paid speeches to corporations, banks and other organizations," The New York Times reports. "They have now earned more than $125 million on the [lecture] circuit since leaving the White House in 2001."


Ted Rall: When Did Post-Disaster News Conferences Become Long-Winded Oscar Acceptance Speeches? (Creators Syndicate)
Today's news conferences are a dreary, undignified melange of pro forma acknowledgements and sentimental pabulum.


Susan Estrich: The Graduates (Creators Syndicate)
Do not despair. That is my message. There is sweetness to come. You will fall in love; you will buy that house; you will get that job; you will think back on this you and smile with fondness. Be kind to yourself. Be patient. There is sweetness to come.


Hadley Freeman: "Judy Blume: 'It's hard to be sexy when you're on a deadline'" (Guardian)
She is one of the world's most successful authors, selling over 80m books - but her latest will be her last. She talks to a lifelong fan about love, luck and why thinking like a child saved her life.


Tom Lamont: "'I spent most of my life as a nobody': the last of the silent movie stars" (Guardian)
In 1922, when Hollywood was young and anarchic, an actor known as Baby Peggy made a silent film called The Darling Of New York. Her career was booming and this was a major role, the movie pivoting on a scene in which she would be trapped - title-cards illuminating the horror - in a burning bedroom. On the day of the shoot, propmen doused their set in kerosene. Then they positioned Baby Peggy in the middle and lit everything on fire


Oliver Burkeman: When raising awareness backfires (Guardian)
'The greater the number of people engaged in a given behaviour, the less wrong it feels.'

Lonestar Lois Of Oregon answered:
   I LOVE that Cowboy song! Always request it from the band whenever I'm out barhopping so I can sing along; "They're never at home, and they're always alone, except when they're fucking their horse".

BartCop

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 active@bartcop.com.

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 bartcop.com

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.

Climate Change Concerts Delayed

'Live Earth'

Organisers of Live Earth, a set of global concerts backed by Al Gore aimed at pushing for urgent action on climate change, announced a delay Friday, weeks before the scheduled date.

Live Earth had intended shows on each inhabited continent for June 18 featuring more than 100 artists to raise pressure for a strong agreement at a UN-led climate conference in Paris at the end of the year.

Representatives, however, said that no events would take place that day, and instead a free concert would be held near the Eiffel Tower in Paris sometime in the autumn.

Live Earth was initially intended to consist of concerts on June 18 in Australia, Brazil, China, South Africa and the United States, as well as Paris.

Skipping 'Full House' Reboot

Olsen Twins

Twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not appear in the rebooted version of hit US sitcom "Full House," US media reports said.

Robert Boyett, executive producer of the new show -- "Fuller House" -- scheduled to air on Netflix next year, told the Hollywood Reporter neither of the Olsens would star in the follow-up series.

Boyett however said the Olsens, who have since branched out from acting into fashion, had turned down the chance to reprise the role of Michelle.

The new series will revolve around the eldest daughter of the Tanner clan, D.J., played by original cast member Candace Cameron-Bure, as she also attempts to grapple with widowhood with the help of her friends.

Pot Tribute

'Mujica Gold'

Fans of former Uruguay president Jose Mujica, known for fully legalizing marijuana, from the cannabis field to the joint, can now light up in his honor with the new "Mujica gold" strain.

The variety of pot was created "as a tribute" to the colorful iconoclast "in recognition of his work," said Javier Ruiz, part of the team that created the seed.

Under Mujica, Uruguay became the first country in the world to fully legalize marijuana in 2013.

"Mujica gold," with its "fruity and floral" aroma, hit markets last year and was an immediate success, Ruiz told AFP.

Ketama Seeds, which created the variety and is headquartered in Navarra, Spain, sells packets of 10 seeds for about $94.

Not Guilty Pleas

Kentucky Bourbon

When authorities found five bourbon barrels on the property of a distillery worker accused of leading a long-running whiskey theft ring in Kentucky, his wife and co-defendant was unaware the containers were on their property, her attorney said Friday.

Kevin Fox, the attorney for Julie Curtsinger, said the charges against her appear to be "circumstantial or by implication" because she's married to Gilbert "Toby" Curtsinger, described by authorities as the ringleader of the theft ring in bourbon country.

The Curtsingers pleaded not guilty to multiple charges Friday. Both are charged with engaging in organized crime. Gilbert Curtsinger's charges include receiving stolen property over $10,000 and trafficking in a controlled substance. Julie Curtsinger is also charged with complicity to trafficking in a controlled substance and another drug-related charge.

Authorities say the syndicate had dual roles - the theft and sale of bourbon and the trafficking of steroids. The thefts targeted the Buffalo Trace and Wild Turkey distilleries and included such prestigious brands as hard-to-get Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.

Lawsuit Stays In Nevada

Sheldon Adelson

A Nevada judge has decided a wrongful termination case against Macau-based Sands China Ltd. and Sands Chairman Sheldon Adelson (R-Money Bags) can stay in Nevada largely because of the influence Adelson wielded over the company, often from several thousand miles away.

Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez issued her ruling Friday afternoon after hearing several days of testimony in April and May to determine if Nevada has jurisdiction over the lawsuit filed by the former CEO of Sands China, Steven Jacobs.

"Adelson and (Las Vegas Sands') control over (Sands China) goes far beyond the ordinary relationship of parent and subsidiary," Gonzalez wrote. Ultimately, Adelson made all the decisions, big and little, when it came to Sands China, she said.

Adelson, the current chairman and CEO of Sands China, attempted during testimony to distance himself from the company at the time in question, 2009 and 2010, saying he was several thousand miles away and couldn't possibly control day-to-day operations.

Other testimony from executives and company emails presented as evidence often disputed that characterization.

Frack You

Texass

A North Texas city whose fracking ban prompted state lawmakers to limit such local power says a driller has revealed plans to resume fracking gas wells in the city.

According to documents obtained through an open records request, the Denton Record-Chronicle reports Vantage Energy notified the city early Tuesday of its plans to begin fracking on Denton's west side, beginning next Wednesday. The notice came the morning after Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill into law Monday afternoon that limits local authority to restrict fracking.

During last November's election, Denton voters banned fracking within the borders of the city of about 125,000 residents, eliciting immediate vows by oil and gas drillers to topple that ban. The state and the drillers filed lawsuits, and the Legislature fulfilled the drillers' vows last week.

The Denton ban remains on the books, but Mayor Chris Watts says the new state law likely renders it unenforceable and would probably stymie any effort to block Vantage plans to finish its gas wells.

Bird Flu Causing Squeeze

Eggs

As a virulent avian influenza outbreak continues to spread across the Midwestern United States, some egg-dependent companies are contemplating drastic steps: importing eggs from overseas or looking to egg alternatives.

A spokeswoman for grain giant Archer Daniels Midland Co said that, as egg supplies have tightened and prices risen, the company has received numerous inquiries from manufacturers about the plant-based egg substitutes it makes.

And with a strong dollar bolstering the buying power of U.S. importers, some companies are scouting for egg supplies abroad.

Meanwhile, companies sticking with egg suppliers closer to home are facing sharply higher prices as a result of the outbreak, which has so far affected some 39 million birds. Nearly one-quarter of the hens that lay "breaker eggs" - which include liquid, dried or frozen eggs used by food manufacturers - have either died or are slated to be euthanized.

The outbreak has led to a sharp uptick in the wholesale price of such eggs, from 63-cents a dozen in late April, when the first egg-laying flock was reported infected, to $1.83 a dozen this week, Brown said.

Traffic Debt

California

Calling California's traffic court system a "hellhole of desperation" for the poor, Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing an amnesty program for residents who can't afford to pay off spiraling fines and penalties that have resulted in 4.8 million driver's license suspensions since 2006.

The push by the Democratic governor spotlights concern among lawmakers and court administrators that California's justice system is profiting off minorities and low-income residents. It's a civil rights issue that has prompted discussions between the Brown administration and the U.S. Department of Justice, according to the governor's spokesman, Evan Westrup.

Under Brown's plan, drivers with lesser infractions would pay half of what they owe, and administrative fees would be slashed from $300 to $50.

Advocates for the poor have likened California's problem to the police and municipal court structure in Ferguson, Missouri, which was criticized by the Justice Department as a revenue-generating machine following last year's fatal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer.

Traffic fines have been skyrocketing in California and courts have grown reliant on fees as a result of budget cuts during the recession.

Ancient Manuscripts

Iraq

Bullets whistled overhead, a black Islamic State flag flapping in the distance, but all Friar Najeeb Michaeel could think of as he fled the jihadists was how to save hundreds of ancient Iraqi manuscripts in his possession.

"You are going to get us killed with your archives," Michaeel's assistant Watheq Qassab grumbled as he struggled to carry six boxes of the documents dated between the 13th and 19th century across the border from Iraq into Kurdistan in August last year.

The Roman Catholic Dominican Order arrived in Iraq in the 13th century, and set up a permanent church in the second city of Mosul in 1750.

Michaeel first smuggled his precious library out of Mosul to Qaraqosh -- Iraq's largest Christian town -- during an Islamist insurgency in 2008 which saw thousands of Christians flee the city.

Last year, the friar again felt the tide turning as the Islamic State group seized town after town, destroying priceless artefacts and documents in museums and libraries in their rampage across Iraq and Syria.

Welcome!


You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
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.
