Marc Dion: Waiting for the Leader (Creators Syndicate)
[The following Marc Dion column was originally released in August 2015. Because of the results of the election, we are releasing it again. Thank you.] The middle and working classes in America are falling behind. Well, the middle class is falling behind. The working class tore up the card in the union they once belonged to and left the world.

Scott Burns: You, Too, Can Be a Restoration Project (AssetBuilder)
We all know that the cost of health care is ridiculous. Medical expenses now make everyone fearful of any kind of health event. Worse, a recent report from the Society of Actuaries indicates that life expectancies at all ages are actually declining.

Amy Rogers: How Long Can You Live? And Do You Really Want to? (AssetBuilder)
Most folks would like to live a nice, long life, but it's not something we control. Our lifespan is the result of genetics, environment, lifestyle, medical care and luck. New research suggests that the maximum lifespan has increased over the last century. But it's not on its way to "forever" as some claim. Instead, it has plateaued at 115 years. They say that's as good as it gets.

The Guinness record-holder for longest career in cartooning talks about his life in satire.

Melissa Locker: "Chrissie Hynde: 'I am very grateful to punk'" (The Guardian)
With her band the Pretenders, Hynde has blazed a defiant trail through rock'n'roll for four decades. Just don't call her a role model - or invite her to an awards event.

Hadley Freeman: Mariah Carey wants $50m from her ex - and it only makes me love her more (The Guardian)
Every decision I make these days is accompanied by the inner question: 'What would Mariah do?'

Clive James: 'It occurred to me that I might be suffering from a sudden mental disturbance' (The Guardian)
When one is genuinely shocked, there is a tendency to mumble polite banalities and shuffle away, dazed.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The mnemonic "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos" is useful for remembering what?

       The names of the planets                                                      Source

To memorise the names of the planets, use the planetary mnemonic: "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos" or "My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming Planets" - where each of the initial letters matches the name of the planets in our solar system (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, [Pluto]).        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   Mother Very Easily Made a Jam Sandwich Using No Peanutbutter
     asteroid belt

Mark. wrote:
   "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos" certainly reminds me of the planets in the solar system -- Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

  Sorry about your caterpillar, Marty.
  Everyone who voted for Trump was conned. He's filling up his cabinet with old-school politicians and serial cheaters (yeah, you, Newt). And big corporations are sending their lobbyists. Yeah, that's how you drain the swamp.

Backs Anti-Trump Protests

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro gave anti-Donald Trump protesters across the United States his backing Friday as he spoke about how "depressed" the tycoon's win in the presidential election had made him.

The 73-year-old star was on the red carpet at the world premiere of his new film "The Comedian" in Los Angeles when he was asked how he was coping with Trump's victory over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"How am I doing? I'm very depressed," the famously laconic "Raging Bull" actor told reporters.

"We have to just wait and see how things go and keep our eyes ever vigilant on the new government."

Asked if he thought the protests were an appropriate response to the outcome of Tuesday's election, he replied: "Yes, absolutely. Things aren't being done right."

Space Oddity: David Bowie's Secret Obsession With '80s Memphis Design | Collectors Weekly


Extraordinary Art Auction

David Bowie

Ten months to the day after his passing, the bulk of David Bowie's personal art collection -- some 400 works in total -- went on the block at a three-part auction at Sotheby's on Nov. 10-11, fetching a grand total of $41.1 million.

More than $30 million was sold on the first night alone, where well-heeled (and furred) attendees raised paddles against bids submitted around the world via phone and the Web. Jean-Michel Basquiat's "Air Power" was the evening's -- and the auction's -- top seller at $8.8 million, trouncing the pre-auction estimate of $3.3 million to enthusiastic applause.

Frank Auerbach's "Head of Gerda Boehm" ($4.8 million); Basquiat's "Untitled" ($3 million); Peter Lanyon's "Witness" ($1 million); and Damien Hirst's collaborative painting with Bowie, "Beautiful, hallo, space-boy painting" ($990,000) rounded out the top five.

More than half of the artists represented in the sale -- 59 in sum -- set sales records, underlining what a premium Bowie's ownership lent to the works.

The auction follows an unusually long and far-reaching promotional tour, which saw key pieces from the collection travel across Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong before returning to London for a 10-day exhibition open to the public. More than 55,000 people came to see the assembled works before they went to their new owners across the globe.

Won't Advertise In Daily Mail Anymore


The Danish toy company Lego said Saturday it won't advertise anymore in Britain's Daily Mail, one of several British newspapers targeted by a social media campaign for their anti-immigrant stances.

The maker of multi-colored Lego building bricks tweeted Saturday "@StopFundingHate We have finished the agreement with the Daily Mail."

Roar Rude Trangbaek, a spokesman for the privately-held company, told The Associated Press that Lego has "no plans to make additional marketing activities with the newspaper."

"We spend a lot of time listening to what children tell us. And when parents and grandparents take the time to tell us what they think, we listen," he said in an email. He declined to elaborate on the advertising.

The Stop Funding Hate campaign has urged companies to drop advertising in several British newspapers due to their resistance to helping child refugees.

Pakistan Deports

Sharbat Gula

Afghanistan's president Wednesday welcomed back Sharbat Gula, the green-eyed woman immortalised on a National Geographic cover, after she was deported from Pakistan to the war-torn homeland she first fled decades ago.

Pakistani officials handed over Gula, whose haunting eyes were captured in a cover photo taken in a refugee camp in the 1980s, to Afghan border authorities after escorting her from a Peshawar hospital where she was being treated for Hepatitis C.

Gula, arguably Afghanistan's most famous refugee, was arrested last month for living in Pakistan on fraudulent identity papers.

"Pleased to have welcomed Sharbat Gula & her family back to (Afghanistan)," President Ashraf Ghani said on Twitter. "Her life inspires us all. She represents all the brave women of this land."

Ghani has promised to provide Gula, 45, with a furnished apartment to ensure she "lives with dignity and security" in Afghanistan.

Already Altering the World's Gene Pool

Climate Change

The dire impact of human-caused climate change on ecosystems, species, and public health is already well under way, a landmark study published Friday in the journal Science warns.

The study authors analyzed a vast array of studies showing how climate change is altering the world around us and concluded that the planet's warming has interfered with more than 80 percent of biological processes, including genetics, body mass, sex ratios, and productivity.

"Climate change has already impacted almost all aspects of life on Earth," lead author Brett Scheffers, an assistant professor of wildlife ecology and conservation at the University of Florida, said in an email.

These changes have occurred after an average global temperature increase of just 1 degree Celsius since preindustrial times. Experts predict that the planet might see 2- to 3-degree-Celsius warming by the end of the century.

It was the first time scientists had analyzed and described all of these changes in their entirety.

To Appeal Music Licensing Court Loss

Justice Department

The U.S. Justice Department will ask an appeals court to require music licensing company BMI to change how it collects royalties, the department said in a brief court filing on Friday.

The crux of the battle is over what kind of licenses Broadcast Music Inc, or BMI, can issue to digital streaming services, radio and television stations, bars and other music users.

BMI is fighting the Justice Department in court over the issue while the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, or ASCAP, presses for legislative change.

The Justice Department had said in August that it would require ASCAP and BMI to only issue "full-work" licenses. Requiring full-work licenses raised complications for some songs - no one knows how many - where songwriters did not agree to give each other joint ownership to the songs.

ASCAP and BMI have been issuing "fractional licenses" for songs if the organization does not represent all its composers.

Set Fire To Gain Facebook Views

Wannabe Weatherman

A wannabe weatherman was jailed for arson after admitting he started a wildfire to draw attention to his selfie videos on Facebook, his town's police chief said Friday. Meanwhile, a Georgia sheriff appealed for help identifying the driver of a dark blue SUV last seen where other wildfires began. And in North Carolina, authorities suspect arson in more than 20 wildfires burning in a national forest.

"It's really too bad because he's not a bad kid - he's just misguided," said James Stephens, the police chief in Jenkins, Kentucky, where Johnny Mullins, 21, was arrested this week on a second-degree arson charge.

"He likes to do Facebook videos and have people follow him on his 'weather forecast,' so that's pretty much why he did what he did," the chief said. "He enjoyed the attention he got from the Facebook stuff."

"He didn't realize how much danger he was putting other people in," Stephens added.

No arrests were announced in most of the rest of the suspicious fires, which have been torching forests in and around the southern Appalachian mountains. The relentless drought across much of the South has removed the usual humidity and sucked wells and streams dry, making the woods ripe for fire.

Diver Finds While Hunting Sea Cucumbers

Long-Lost Nuke

A man diving off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, may have stumbled upon a nuclear weapon that the United States lost decades ago.

Now, the Royal Canadian Navy is scoping out the strange object to see if it is indeed a Mark IV bomb that was jettisoned by an American pilot in 1950 just before his plane crashed.

The man, Sean Smyrichinsky, was using an underwater scooter to hunt for sea cucumbers near Pitt Island, when he came upon a weird bagel-shaped object. After straying from his boat, he came upon a bizarre object that looked a bit like a half-cut bagel the size of a king-sized bed, he told CBC.

"I came out from the dive and I came up and I started telling my crew, 'My god, I found a UFO. I found the strangest thing I'd ever seen!' Smyrichinsky told CBC. "It resembled, like, a bagel cut in half, and then around the bagel these bowls molded into it."

When he came to shore, he started asking around. He soon came upon the strange tale of the Convair 36-B, a bomber that took off from Elison Air Base in Alaska in 1950 and was flying near British Columbia when its engines caught fire. The plane was testing how well it could carry a Mark IV "Fat Man," an 11,000 pound (4,900 kilogram) atomic bomb similar to those dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, according to

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.
