Mark Morford: "America: Drunk on hate, dying for love" (SF Gate)
From Jesus to Buddha, the Dalai Lama to MLK, the LGBT community to President Obama himself, in the face of horrendous violence, in the face of relentless stabs of blind hate, homophobia, racism, fear and death and a savage ignorance of God, the simple, but profoundly felt, call to love.

Mark Morford: Apple disses Trump, because of course they should (SF Gate)
Will hardcore Trump supporters - like this sweet, all-American Arizona voter - stop buying iPhones? Will iPhone fans who also love Trump now hurl their devices into the sewer and switch to Samsung, a vaguely creepy foreign company that doesn't give a damn about US politics, and will therefore happily support a hunk of rotting asparagus if it will sell them more Galaxy S'?

Bruce Bawer: The Single Artificer (Hudson Review)
… Frost's reputation has more or less held steady, and Williams' understated, colloquial poems went on to become templates for creative-writing students everywhere; but Eliot has definitely slipped, and Sandburg crashed and burned a long time ago. Meanwhile, Stevens has soared on extended wings.

A new study of Ray Bradbury reminds us how much the author of Fahrenheit 451 believed in humanity.

Devaluing the word, delegitimizing the concept.

Michael Brooke: "Fantastic Planet: Gambous Amalga" (Criterion)
It's a completely thought-through science-fiction vision, ranking alongside Metropolis, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Dune, Akira, and The Fifth Element, most of which were made many years later, and all of them on far greater budgets.

Emma Brockes: Public nudity doesn't have to invite ridicule. Just go to a sample sale (The Guardian)

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question of the Day

By what name is this American entertainer best known?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

To celebrate the nation's bicentennial in 1976, Betty Ford invited the Grammy-winning duo Captain and Tennille to perform at the White House for Queen Elizabeth. What is the title of Daryl and Toni's hit that put the queen to sleep?

       "Muskrat Love"                                                      Source

To celebrate the nation's bicentennial in 1976, one of the most popular acts of the era - the Grammy-winning husband-and-wife duo Captain and Tennille - were invited to perform for President Ford, First Lady Betty Ford, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The couple opted to perform their camp classic, "Muskrat Love," after the First Lady personally requested another suggestive song.

"We had two great hits, 'Love Will Keep us Together' and 'The Way I Want to Touch You,' " she recalls. "I thought, 'I probably can't do 'The Way I Want to Touch You.' It might be a little too intimate for the White House.' But then when Mrs. Ford came in and said, 'Are you going to do 'The Way I Want to Touch You?'

I went, 'Okay, we'll do that.' Then I said to Daryl, 'We really should do 'Muskrat Love,' too.' It was a huge hit and I thought everyone would get a kick out of it. I thought they seemed like a fun group!"

But with their synthesizer - which Daryl uses in the song to recreate the sound of love-making muskrats - speakers and keyboard set up in the East Room, the volume was high - and not everyone was pleased.

Kissinger in particular seemed miserable throughout the performance, says Tennille (she good-naturedly dedicated the song to him for years after), while the Queen simply nodded off.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   Muskrat Love.

mj said:
   There was some discussion
  Regarding singing about rodent sexuality for HRH's pleasure.
  Nevertheless, Muskrat Suzie and Muskrat Sam did the jitterbug down in Muskrat Land. They sang Muskrat Love.

Randall wrote:
   Muskrat Love?

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Love will keep us together

Deborah replied:
   I'm guessing "Muskrat Love." I mean, it was so jejune, and low-key, I can imagine the Queen falling asleep.
  It was 102* when my friend and I left at 4:30 yesterday afternoon for our hill-training bike ride. We cut the ride by 1/3rd - we were both experiencing heat-related distress. We were both kind of embarrassed. I hope in a couple weeks we'll be immune to triple digits. Shoot, if we're having triple digits *still* in a couple weeks, I may have to move north.

Adam answered:
   Muskrat Love.
  I was 10 at the time, but the more I hear about the 70s, the more I love 'em.

Marian said:
   Muskrat Love

Lois Of The Semi-Aquatic Rodents replied:
   Oh my god, I vaguely remember watching some insipid variety show featuring a musical pair who resembled the end result of generations of brother/sister couplings. But it was the 1970's, and times were hard, dark dank days of "whipping inflation" and year-round daylight savings had left the nation exhausted and demoralized, and it didn't take much to entertain us. My heart goes out to Good Queen Bess!

Dale of still hot Diamond springs, Norcali responded:
   First it was Tony Orlando…now it's Captain & Tennille putting the Queen to sleep with "Muskrat Love"…Just another vapid and sterile piece of LA plastic popshit …The Ex and I stumbled into one of their shows at Harrah's Tahoe in '76…Awful…left after three songs…couldn't stand the banter…more of that than songs…really lame sexual innuendo… What's fucking next, "Afternoon Delight"?

  Remember when you vote, if you even vote, who Terrruuummmppp thought he was pals with.

Closing Arguments

'Stairway To Heaven'

It's time for the encores at a trial that's been a deep dive in to rock 'n' roll history, with musical luminaries taking the stand and straining their memories for details from their glory days.

Closing arguments were heard Wednesday in the federal copyright infringement lawsuit that claims Led Zeppelin stole its biggest hit "Stairway to Heaven" from the late Randy Wolfe, also known as Randy California, founder of the band Spirit.

Singer Robert Plant on Tuesday told a packed courtroom he did not remember hanging out with Spirit, as the band's bass player testified, after a 1970 show at a club Plant frequented in Birmingham, England. Plant said he and his wife were in a bad car wreck and he has no memory of the evening.

Jurors never heard a note from Page or Plant live, but they were treated to lo-fi vintage recordings of the band creating the song, renditions on guitar and piano by other musicians and, finally, the full 8-minute recording of one of rock's most enduring anthems.

Lost Colony Artifacts?

Roanoke Island

Archaeologists on North Carolina's Roanoke Island found pottery pieces that could have been part of a jar belonging to a medicine maker of the Roanoke Island voyages and perhaps a member of the "Lost Colony."

Two quarter-size fragments, colored blue, white and brown, were discovered buried in the soil near an earthen mound believed to have been a 16th century fort, The Virginian-Pilot reported.

"Lost Colony" settlers disappeared from Roanoke Island in the late 16th century after English explorer Walter Raleigh sent three groups to the coast of North Carolina in 1584, 1585 and 1587.

Artifacts have been uncovered throughout the years in and around the areas where the settlers are believed to have built forts.

And while archaeologists have yet to discover the fate of the colony, discoveries such as the pottery offer glimpses into the colonists' lives.

Exhibition Falls Victim To Own Success


Artist Christo's floating walkway on a northern Italian lake may have to be closed at night because of wear-and-tear inflicted by the 270,000 visitors who have flocked to see it in less than five days.

The three-kilometre-long (1.9-mile) walkway of 200,000 floating cubes covered in orange fabric has proved a major hit with the public since it opened on Lake Iseo on Saturday.

But plans to keep "The Floating Piers" open day and night until July 3 may now have to be shelved as it is being worn out faster than expected, local officials said.

The numbers of people who have come to walk on the installation have far exceeded organisers' expectations.

They had estimated around 500,000 would come over 16 days.



Digby's Hullabaloo


New Chapter Begins

Inmate No. 47991-424

Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Serial Child Molester) arrived at a Minnesota prison on Wednesday to serve his 15-month sentence in a hush-money case involving revelations that the Illinois Republican sexually abused at least four boys when he coached wrestling at an Illinois high school.

The wheelchair-bound 74-year-old Hastert arrived around noon at the Rochester Federal Medical Center, partly wheeling himself into the complex between high, razor-wire fencing. A woman followed behind him, carrying crutches.

Hastert - one of the highest-ranking U.S. politicians to go to prison - will be known at the prison as Inmate No. 47991-424.

At sentencing in April, U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Durkin cited the abuse that dated back more than 35 years and branded Hastert "a serial child molester" in imposing a sentence that went beyond federal guidelines, which recommended no more than six months behind bars.

Hastert wasn't charged with child abuse because statutes of limitation ran out; he coached at Yorkville High School from 1965 to 1981. Instead, Hastert was charged with and pleaded guilty to violating banking law in trying to pay $3.5 million in hush money to one victim referred to in court papers only as "Individual A."

BLM Lacks Authority to Regulate


U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl said the Bureau of Land Management can't set the rules because Congress has not authorized it to do so. The judge, who was nominated by Obama in 2011, wrote that the court's role is not to decide whether hydraulic fracturing is good or bad for the environment, but to interpret whether Congress has given the Department of Interior legal authority to regulate the practice.

"It has not," wrote Skavdahl, who last year blocked implementation of rules drafted by the agency.

The states of Colorado, North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming oppose the rules involving hydraulic fracturing, which involves injecting substances including water, sand and chemicals underground to increase production from oil and gas wells.

The Bureau of Land Management and a coalition of environmental groups say the rules are necessary to protect the environment. The bureau's rules would have required petroleum developers to disclose to regulators the ingredients in the chemical products they use to improve the results of hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking.

Neal Kirby, a spokesman for the Independent Petroleum Association of America, said Tuesday he is pleased with Skavdahl's decision.

Chief Justice Spins


Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore (R-Atavistic) stands accused of urging defiance against the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage, but his lawyers argued Tuesday in a legal filing that the complaint is baseless and he never ordered state probate judges to refuse wedding licenses to gay couples.

The outspoken Republican jurist, who once lost his judicial post for disobeying a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Supreme Court building, is suspended from the bench. He faces possible removal from office again over a January administrative order he sent probate judges.

His order reminded judges that a 2015 Alabama Supreme Court injunction to refuse same-sex marriage licenses remained in "full force and effect" even though the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges effectively legalized gay marriage six months earlier.

Moore's suspension comes amid a season of political upheaval in Alabama that has ensnared Republicans at the top of all three branches of state government.

Former House Speaker Mike Hubbard was removed from office after being convicted of violating state ethics law. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has faced calls for his impeachment following a sex-tinged scandal

San Andreas Fault


Scientists have produced computer imagery showing large areas of California sinking and rising around the San Andreas fault, possibly causing damage in the event of a large earthquake.

While scientists have long expected that parts of the state were moving along California's longest earthquake fault, a study in the journal Nature Geoscience produced the first computer images confirming the phenomenon, according to the L.A. Times.

The study found that while much of the Los Angeles Basin is sinking-by a mere two to three millimeters annually-that other areas to the north and west are rising, such as Santa Barbara and parts of San Bernardino County.

Once the next big earthquake hits, Southern California's different parts will jump back into place at the same level, according to the L.A. Times. "Once there is a major event, all of that energy gets released," Sam Howell, a doctoral candidate in geophysics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and the lead author of the report, told the paper.

Some areas along the San Andreas fault have not moved significantly in more than 150 years, the average interval between large ruptures. It is difficult, however, to predict when the next earthquake will hit the area says Howell. "It's pretty much impossible to say when the next one will happen."

Some People Really Hate T-rump


Donald Trump will be greeted by at least two Mexican flags, placed near his Aberdeenshire golf course in Scotland, when he visits the country later this week.

It's a symbolic reminder of those he's offended locally and internationally and a sign that the presumptive Republican U.S. presidential nominee should not expect a warm welcome after years-long contention surrounding the links, locals say.

"He's notoriously disliked here," said Stan Blackley, an Edinburgh resident who famously rubbed a yellow balloon on Trump's head in 2012. "When he comes, we can almost feel the hair up the spine of Scotland stand up."

Blackley, a 46-year-old environmental campaigner, is one of many who oppose the real estate tycoon's presence in Scotland. Almost 600,000 people earlier this year signed a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the U.K. Many of the signatures came from Scotland, according to The Atlantic.

"To some extent, I'm worried about his visit. He's a blatantly racist, sexist, misogynistic idiot," said David Milne, who recently erected a Mexican flag on top of his house near Trump's International Golf Links course. "We would be far happier without him being here."
