Paul Ryan: 'We're not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people' (YouTube)
Yeah, he said it. Here's proof.

Lindy West: America has never seen a party less caring than 21st-century Republicans (The Guardian)
We pay our elected officials to take care of our communities and our planet. Since Trump took office, the GOP has set out only to destroy.

Mark Morford: Donald Trump's perverted gift to the world (SF Gate)
Might connecting yourself in any way with the Trump name/brand/toxic stew of revolting policies serve to make things far worse for you in your life, business, political ventures, dreams? Right now, it's more than possible that even the most terrified of the world's voters have smelled what America's oozing, and are beginning to reverse nationalism's hateful course. What a "gift" he is. But oh, what a price we have to pay.

Kirsten Fleming: This teen creates dresses straight out of a Jane Austen novel (NY Post)
The teen, who was home-schooled, is self-taught in design, pattern-making and sewing. Her YouTube tutorials have hundreds of thousands of views and earn her cash to pay for materials. Clayton has made more than 50 dresses, but saved only 30, discarding ones she doesn't think are good enough.

Richard Luscombe: Desperately wanted: python hunters to tackle Florida's unwelcome intruder (The Guardian)
Since Burmese pythons found their way into the wild in the 80s, they have decimated native wildlife. Now 150,000 could be lurking in the state's waterways.

Garrison Keillor: The Secret Delight of Poetry (Washington Post)
Poets get the girl. Football heroes get concussions or need hip replacements. My classmates who played football are walking with canes and moaning when they sit down, and they find it hard to figure out the 10 percent tip at lunch. We poets go sashaying along, perpetually 17, lost in wonder at the ordinary, astonished by streetlights, in awe at lawn ornaments, bedazzled by baristas releasing steam into milk for the lattes.

Alexandra Petri: 'Poetry is not dead,' says poetry (Washington Post)
I would not, for your health, recommend attacking poetry.

Stephen Moss: What is the future of poetry? (The Guardian)
What is poetry for? Who is it for? And can it really be on the ascendant? Stephen Moss (who has, sadly, not become the next Oxford professor of poetry) reports from the front line.

Jane E. Brody: A Positive Outlook May Be Good for Your Health (NY Times)
There is no longer any doubt that what happens in the brain influences what happens in the body. When facing a health crisis, actively cultivating positive emotions can boost the immune system and counter depression. Studies have shown an indisputable link between having a positive outlook and health benefits like lower blood pressure, less heart disease, better weight control and healthier blood sugar levels.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Who was pictured on the cover of the very first Rolling Stone magazine?

       John Lennon                                                      Source

Rolling Stone is an American biweekly magazine that focuses on popular culture. It was founded in San Francisco in 1967 by Jann Wenner, who is still the magazine's publisher, and the music critic Ralph J. Gleason. It was first known for its musical coverage and for political reporting by Hunter S. Thompson. In the 1990s, the magazine shifted focus to a younger readership interested in youth-oriented television shows, film actors, and popular music. In recent years, it has resumed its traditional mix of content.

Some artists have graced the cover many times, and some of these pictures went on to become iconic. The Beatles, for example, have appeared on the cover more than 30 times, either individually or as a band. The first 10 issues featured, in order of appearance, the following:
     John Lennon
     Tina Turner
     The Beatles ...        Source

Adam was first and correct with:
   John Lennon

Mark. said:
   I think John Lennon was on the cover of the first Rolling Stone magazine. Wasn't it a picture of him in WWI military uniform from the movie How I Won the War?

Randall wrote:
   John Lennon

mj replied:
   Wild, wild guess
  Going out on my own, like a complete unknown, I'm going with Bob Dylan, the man who started the stone rolling for many of us.

Alan J answered:
   John Lennon.

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   John Lennon

Deborah wrote:
   John Lennon was on the first cover of Rolling Stone. I used to subscribe to it. Recently, they had a review of my son's band, King Woman, which I can't read because I'm not a subscriber.
  I really enjoyed BTTB Bob's description of his time in Maine. I've never been there, and felt like I was there through his writing.
  Meanwhile, we have more spring weather. The bright green of new leaves is so pretty.

David of Moon Valley said:
   I remember this one! John Lennon (well, given my increase of 'senior moments' as of late, i could be cranially anally inverted on this one, too)

John I from Hawai`i says,
   "John Lennon."

Billy in Cypress said:
   The first cover of RS had a picture of Saint John (the Beatle and the house of Lennon). Saints like John are not so visible these days and we could definitely use a dozen or so to spread the message of love and peace. While there are some current messengers, they have not reached the masses in popularity or influence. I hope and IMAGINE they will appear once more.

Dale of Springy Diamond Springs, Norcali replied:
   John Lennon not winning WWI.

DJ Useo responded:
   I remember that very easily, as John Lennon was my hero.
  Here's a mashup I made with his music vs Sublime's singing.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC took the day off.

Meeting Nobel Academy

Bob Dylan

Nobel literature prize laureate Bob Dylan will meet with members of the Swedish Academy during a weekend visit to Stockholm and they will hand over his Nobel diploma and medal, the academy said Wednesday

Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the academy, said in a blog on the academy's website that Dylan will not give his Nobel lecture during the weekend but that a recorded version would be sent at a later date.

She noted that taped Nobel lectures are occasionally presented, most recently in 2013 by Canadian Nobel literature laureate Alice Munro.

Danius said that the academy "is very much looking forward to the weekend" and will attend a Dylan concert, but added that the setting of their meeting will be "small and intimate, and no media will be present," in line with his wishes.

Keeping PricewaterhouseCoopers


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revamped its procedures to avoid a repeat of the disastrous finale of this year's Oscar ceremony.

At Tuesday's board meeting, the Academy's Board of Governors decided not to fire PricewaterhouseCoopers, which has taken responsibility for the envelope mishap that led to the wrong film being declared best picture.

Instead, the Academy and PwC outlined a detailed set of protocols intended to avoid a similar mistake in the future. In the past, two PwC accountants have been solely responsible for tabulating the votes and handing out the envelopes.

Beginning next year, PwC will station a third accountant in the control room. That accountant will know the winners in advance, and will be able to alert the show's director in case of an error.

Returns To Rupert "News"


Fox News Channel legal analyst Andrew Napolitano returned to the air Wednesday, saying he stood by his claim about spying on President Donald Trump that got him benched by the network for more than a week.

Napolitano had reported on Fox that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Trump, a story that quickly attracted notice because the president cited it in a news conference. Britain denied that it had done any such thing, and Fox news anchors Shepard Smith and Bret Baier distanced the network from the report, saying its reporters had found no evidence that Trump had been under surveillance.

Fox said on March 21 that it was taking Napolitano off the air for an indefinite period. The former New Jersey judge has worked at Fox News and Fox Business Network as an analyst since 1998.

In his return Wednesday, Napolitano told anchor Bill Hemmer that he stood by his story - and Hemmer didn't mention that others at Fox had been unable to verify it.

Hemmer and Napolitano then moved on to another topic. Fox didn't explain to its viewers Wednesday why Napolitano had been off the air.

Needs Help With Her Curtains

Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth II is looking for a new curtain and cushion maker for Buckingham Palace, according to a job listing posted Monday on the official palace website. The job title read "Curtain Maker and Soft Furnishing Upholsterer."

The eligible candidate would be offered a per annum salary of 22,000 pounds ($27,698) and an additional 15 percent of employer contribution pension scheme and benefits.

The job listing explained that the person hired will have to work within the premises of the three royal buildings -- Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and St. James's Palace. The advertisement also said there will be "more than a thousand rooms, all containing various furniture and furnishings. Your challenge will be to provide curtains and soft furnishings that will maintain the presentation and functionality of these unique environments."

The explanation in the advertisement makes it clear that only hard-working and determined candidates should consider the application. It indicated that the work will be challenging and went on to claim, "The range of projects will stretch you. And knowing that you're conserving and creating magnificent items that will be enjoyed by future generations will give you the greatest sense of reward."

Holocaust Survivor To ICE Director: 'History Is Not On Your Side'

Bernard Marks

An Auschwitz survivor confronted one of the nation's top immigration officials and a local sheriff at a California town hall Tuesday night.

Bernard Marks, 87, addressed Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan and Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, a supporter of President Trump. Jones had invited Homan to the public forum to discuss address the community's concerns about ICE's collaboration with local law enforcement.

"Thank you for the forum that you have here tonight," said Marks. "When I was a little boy in Poland, for no other reason but for being Jewish, I was hauled off by the Nazis. And for no other reason, I was picked up and separated from my family, who was exterminated in Auschwitz. And I am a survivor of Auschwitz and Dachau."

"I spent five and a half years in concentration camps," he added, "for one reason and one reason only - because we picked on people - and you as the sheriff, who we elected as sheriff of this county - we did not elect you for sheriff of Washington, D.C. It's about time you side with the people here. And when this gentleman [Homan] stands up there and says he doesn't go after people, he should read today's [Sacramento] Bee. Because in today's Bee, the Supreme Court Justice of California objected to ICE coming in and taking people away from the courts. Don't tell me that this is a lie."

"You stand up here, Mr. Jones. Don't forget - history is not on your side."

Felony Charges

James O'Keefe School Of Journalism

California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent.

The charges against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress come eight months after similar charges were dropped in Texas.

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a longtime Congressional Democrat who took over the investigation in January, said in a statement that the state "will not tolerate the criminal recording of conversations."

Prosecutors say Daleiden, of Davis, California, and Merritt, of San Jose, filmed 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and El Dorado counties. One felony count was filed for each person. The 15th was for criminal conspiracy to invade privacy.

Abortion opponents said the recordings showed Planned Parenthood was illegally harvesting and selling the organs. Planned Parenthood said the videos were deceptively edited to support extremists' false claims.

Ban Talks Boycott By US

Nuclear Arms

U.N. talks aimed at banning nuclear weapons began Monday, but the United States, Russia, China and other nuclear-armed nations are sitting out a discussion they see as impractical.

Supporters of the potential pact say it's time to push harder toward eliminating atomic weapons than nations have been doing through the nearly 50-year-old Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

With international tensions rising while public awareness of the nuclear threat has waned, "the need for progress on nuclear disarmament has rarely been as urgent as it is today," U.N. Under Secretary-General for disarmament Kim Won-soo said as the talks opened.

More than 100 countries voted for a U.N. General Assembly resolution last year to start discussions, with nations including Austria, Brazil and Ireland leading the effort.

But the U.S. and several other nuclear powers say a ban won't work and the world should instead stick with a more gradual approach.

Banana Republican Answers


Lawmakers want Mississippi to change how it handles executions, with changes meant to overcome legal challenges to execution drugs, and possibly allow the state to use electrocution and the firing squad as death penalty methods.

The Senate agreed on Tuesday to changes to HB 638, sending it to Gov. Phil Bryant for his approval or veto after the House agreed Monday.

The measure lists four preferred execution methods. The first is lethal injection using a three-drug mixture. After that, in order, the bill specifies poison gas, electrocution and firing squad as execution methods.



Official WH Employee


Ivanka Trump is officially joining her father's administration as an unpaid employee, after her plans to serve in a more informal capacity were questioned by ethics experts.

The first daughter announced Wednesday that she will serve as an unpaid employee in the White House, saying she had "heard the concerns some have with my advising the President in my personal capacity." She added that she has been "working in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role."

The news about Ivanka Trump was first reported by The New York Times. A White House official said her title will be Assistant to the President.

Trump previously announced she was getting a West Wing office and a security clearance, but would not officially join the administration. That decision had drawn criticism from ethics experts.

Several attorneys and government watchdog leaders last week wrote a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn asking him to reconsider his approval of Ivanka Trump serving her father without becoming an official government employee. Such a designation carries with it the requirement to follow an array of transparency and ethical provisions, including a law prohibiting conflicts of interest.

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.
