from Bruce

Max Fisher: Fearing U.S. Withdrawal, Europe Considers Its Own Nuclear Deterrent (NY Times)
An idea, once unthinkable, is gaining attention in European policy circles: a European Union nuclear weapons program.


Mark Morford: When the president is a madman (SF Gate)
It's all just madness, really, barely controlled, intensely shoddy and deeply weird, to a degree that the media can barely keep up (though they're getting better), Europe is preparing for the worst, and the despicable Republican party lets him inflict whatever horror he wants, lest it restrict their ability to gut health care, cut taxes for the rich and cram through their shockingly poisonous, unpopular agenda.


Garrison Keillor: The vast left-wing conspiracy against me (Washington Post)
Joe Biden is following me. I go to lunch at Mickey's Diner and he's sitting two stools away, wearing a stocking cap and a fake mustache with a fake nose and glasses but he says, "Hey, how's it going, fella?" It's Joe Biden. So pathetic. Sad.


Paul Krugman: A Plan Set Up To Fail (NY Times Blog)
Taken together, these moves would almost surely lead to a death spiral. Healthy individuals, especially low-income households no longer receiving adequate aid, would opt out, worsening the risk pool. Premiums would soar - without the cushion created by the current, price-linked subsidy formula - leading more healthy people to exit. In much of the country, the individual markets would probably collapse.


Paul Waldman: The new Republican health-care plan is awe-inspiringly awful (Washington Post)
So in sum, the Republican bill makes coverage more expensive and less comprehensive, will inevitably lead to fewer people with insurance, is particularly cruel to those with low incomes, and destabilizes the insurance market, all to give a tax break to the wealthy. That's why Avik Roy, perhaps the leading conservative health-care wonk and a fierce critic of the ACA, wrote that the Republican bill reflects a "stubborn desire to make health insurance unaffordable for millions of Americans, and trap millions more in poverty."


Alex Hern: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Link has never been set so free (The Guardian)
5 / 5 stars. The Nintendo Switch launch title takes the Zelda franchise to a whole new level, producing something even greater than the sum of its finely honed parts.


Josh Israel: Trumpcare breaks every promise Trump made about health care (ThinkProgress)
The bill would not preserve coverage for millions nor guarantee cheaper and better health care.


Neil Gaiman on Will Eisner: 'He thought comics were an artform - he was right' (The Guardian)
In the week of what would have been the comics pioneer's 100th birthday, the creator of The Sandman pays tribute to an inspirational storyteller and friend.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question of the Day


Peaking at 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the only record to chart for Loudon Wainwright III, this song memorializes a deceased animal in the center of a street. What kind of animal was it?

Trivia Question from Yesterday


This state's official nickname is the "Gem State". Which US state is it?


       Idaho                                                      Source


Idaho is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. It borders the state of Montana to the east and northeast, Wyoming to the east, Nevada and Utah to the south, and Washington and Oregon to the west. To the north, it shares a small portion of the Canadian border with the province of British Columbia. With a population of around 1.7 million people and an area of 83,569 square miles (216,440 km2), Idaho is the 14th largest and 39th most populous of the 50 states. The state's capital and largest city is Boise.

Industries significant for the state economy include manufacturing, agriculture, mining, forestry, and tourism. A number of science and technology firms are either headquartered in Idaho or have factories there, and the state also contains the Idaho National Laboratory, which is the largest Department of Energy facility in the country. Idaho's agricultural sector supplies a number of different products, but the state is best known for its potato crop, which comprises around one-third of the nationwide yield. The official state nickname is the "Gem State", which references Idaho's reputation for gemstones and, more broadly, its many wilderness areas.        Source

Booted From Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade

OUTVETS

A gay veterans' group that marched in the past two editions of Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade said the event's organizers have voted to exclude them from the march, reigniting a fight over cultural inclusion in the annual event.

Organizers of the parade, the largest marking St. Patrick's Day in the country, had long excluded openly gay groups from participating, saying that doing so would conflict with the parade organizers' Roman Catholic heritage. But they backed down in 2015 in the face of intense public pressure.

OUTVETS, which has marched in Boston's parade for the past two years, said it had not been told why its permit had been denied this year.

Officials with the South Boston Allied War Council, which organizes the 116-year-old event, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who boycotted the event during the time that gays were excluded, said he would not march if the group was not included and some sponsors pulled out in protest over the exclusion of gay marchers.

Feminist Activists Detained

Kremlin Protest

A group of feminist activists was detained in Moscow on Wednesday -- International Women's Day -- after protesting inside the tightly guarded Kremlin with banners calling for an end to male rule.

Seven people were detained including two journalists and taken to a police station for questioning, wrote OVD Info, a website that monitors the detention of activists.

The Novaya Gazeta opposition newspaper, whose journalists witnessed the demonstration, published a photograph of two protesters standing on a balcony of one of the Kremlin towers holding smoke flares and a banner saying "Feminism is our national idea".

The protesters were able to sneak slogans written on skirts and scarves through the tight security, the paper reported.

Police later released the protesters without charge, activist Yelena Tishchenko told the Echo of Moscow radio station.

Ex-British Spy Surfaces

T-rump Dossier

A former British spy who compiled an explosive and unproven dossier on President Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) purported activities in Russia has returned to work.

Christopher Steele said Tuesday he is "really pleased" to be back in his London office after a prolonged period out of public view. He went into hiding in January after his name was published in connection with the dossier.

"I'm now going to be focusing my efforts on supporting the broader interests of our company here," he said without addressing the Trump dossier.

Trump has described the lurid reports in the dossier as "phony allegations" concocted by his political opponents.

It contains unproven allegations of coordination between Trump's advisers and Russians on hacking the emails of prominent Democrats and claims about sexual activities.

Water Level Lowest In Century

Sea of Galilee

The lake where Christians believe Jesus walked on water has declined to its lowest level in a hundred years, an Israeli official said Tuesday.

The Sea of Galilee, which is actually a lake, has suffered from four consecutive years of rain shortages, Amir Givati of Israel's Water Authority told military radio.

The level is 20 centimetres below what experts consider acceptable, the so-called "red line," he added.

The "regional drought affects the whole of the Middle East," Givati added.

The shortage of rainfall is affecting agriculture, the environment and animal life in the nearby area, he added.

Adds Up To Big Tax Cut For The Rich

House GOP Health Bill

The House Republicans' health care bill adds up to big tax cuts for the rich.

The bill would cut more than 20 taxes enacted under President Barack Obama's heath law, saving taxpayers nearly $600 billion over the next decade. The bulk of the money would go to the wealthiest Americans.

Low- and moderate-income families would lose their subsidies to buy health insurance in state and federal marketplaces. The subsidies would be replaced by tax credits to help them buy insurance.

The biggest tax cut would eliminate a 3.8 percent tax on investment income for high-income individuals and families. Eliminating the tax would save these taxpayers $158 billion over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Committee on Taxation, the official scorekeeper for Congress.

About 90 percent of the benefit from repealing the tax would go to the top 1 percent of earners, who make $700,000 or more, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Anti-Gay Marriage Judge Censured, Not Removed

Wyoming

A small-town judge who says her religious beliefs prevent her from presiding over same-sex marriages was publicly censured by the Wyoming Supreme Court on Tuesday.

But while the court said her conduct undermines the integrity of the judicial system, it does not warrant removal from the bench. In a 3-2 decision, Justice Kate Fox wrote that Judge Ruth Neely violated judicial conduct code but removing Neely would "unnecessarily circumscribe protected expression."

"Judge Neely shall either perform no marriage ceremonies or she shall perform marriage ceremonies regardless of the couple's sexual orientation," Fox wrote.

Neely has never been asked to perform a same-sex marriage, and Fox said that the case was not about same-sex marriage or the reasonableness of religious beliefs.

More Likely To Be Wrongfully Convicted

African-Americans

African-Americans are far more likely to be wrongfully convicted of crimes such as murder, sexual assault and illegal drug activity than whites due to factors including racial bias and official misconduct, a study released on Tuesday said.

Of the 1,900 defendants convicted of crimes and later exonerated, 47 percent were African-Americans - three times their representation in the population - according to the study from the National Registry of Exonerations, which examined cases from 1989 to October 2016.

The study also said black Americans were about seven times more likely to be wrongfully convicted of murder than white Americans.

"In the murder cases we examined, the rate of official misconduct is considerably higher in cases where the defendant is African-American compared to cases where the defendant is white," said Samuel Gross, a University of Michigan Law School professor who is senior editor of the group that tracks U.S. exonerations.

He said unconscious bias, institutional discrimination and explicit racism, were factors in some of the wrongful convictions.

Governor Mum On Sharia Law

South Dakota

South Dakota's Republican governor isn't saying whether he'll sign a measure aimed at protecting faith-based organizations that refuse to place children with gay couples or other arrangements contrary to their religious beliefs.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard, who hasn't signaled what action he will take on the bill, frustrated the more conservative elements of his party last year by vetoing a bill that would have required students to use bathrooms and locker rooms corresponding with their birth gender. Daugaard, who isn't seeking re-election, has also pledged to veto a pair of measures this year expanding gun rights.

"I know it was relatively controversial," Daugaard said last week about the adoptions bill. He said he'd "listen to both sides" and weigh in, but as of Wednesday - the day after the GOP-controlled Legislature passed it - Daugaard's office hadn't signaled whether he had made up his mind.

If Daugaard signs the bill, South Dakota would join Michigan, North Dakota and Virginia to pass so-called religious exemption bills concerning adoption and foster care, and the first since the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.

Summer Weather Smashes Records

Australia

Australia endured a summer of record-breaking extremes, scientists said on Wednesday, with climate change tipped to increase the frequency and severity of such phenomena.

Intense heatwaves, bushfires and flooding plagued the December-February summer season with more than 200 records broken over 90 days, the independent Climate Council said in a report.

"Climate change -- driven largely by the burning of coal, oil and gas -- is cranking up the intensity of extreme weather events," the "Angry Summer" report said.

While bushfires are common in Australia's arid summers, climate change has pushed up land and sea temperatures and led to more extremely hot days and severe fire seasons.

The Bureau of Meteorology said last week the country's largest city Sydney had just experienced its hottest summer ever as "records were broken for numbers of hot days and nights across the city".
