from Bruce

Paul Krugman: Race, Class and Neglect (NY Times)
The many casualties of inequality can be helped by providing more resources and opportunities, which we can afford.


Alex Williams: Los Angeles and Its Booming Creative Class Lures New Yorkers (NY Times)
It started with Instagram. Or maybe it ended with Instagram. Last fall, Christina Turner, a fashion stylist in Brooklyn, was dreading another New York winter in her cramped, lightless Greenpoint, Brooklyn, apartment while gazing longingly at the succulent gardens and festive backyard dinner parties posted on social media by her friends in Los Angeles.


Frank Bruni: From 'Hamlet' to Hillary (NY Times)
If Hillary Clinton goes the distance, she may have Shakespeare to thank. Shakespeare and beer. Both forged one of her campaign's chief architects, Joel Benenson. Both are among his compasses.


Andrew Tobias: Dogs and Donors
I love all donors. Realistically, I love some even more than others. I was thinking about that recently because two things happened within minutes of each other. The first thing was that a lawyer who works in Moscow and can rarely make it back for "events" but gives anyway emailed to ask what the new giving limit was this year. (It goes up every two years with inflation.) I told him, and four minutes later saw his credit card come through for $33,400.


Dash Finley: The Most Famous "Improvised" Line in Star Wars Wasn't Improvised (Slate)
Han Solo is about to be lowered into a Carbonite mold and frozen alive. Watching helplessly, Princess Leia rushes to her lovers' side, passionately telling him for the first time "I love you." Though the original script called for Solo to respond with a generic "I love you, too," Harrison Ford instead decided in the moment to utter what is perhaps the most famous "improvised" line of dialogue in a major feature film, saying simply "I know."


Why Are the Star Wars Prequels Hated So Much? (Quora/Slate)
"Because they're not as good as the first trilogy, and the expectations were high." - David Stewart


Steve Hanley, Soon Van, Robert Rosati, G.W. Horowitz: 6 Famous Stars You Didn't Know Are Bigger Geeks Than You (Cracked)
None of us really "know" celebrities -- we only know the one thing that made them famous. We all know Katy Perry because of her singing and O.J. Simpson because of his beloved role in the Naked Gun trilogy. That's why it's always interesting to find out that the things they're passionate about behind closed doors tend to be way different than you'd expect.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


What is the name of Chicken of the Sea mermaid?


      Catalina                                                      Source


MY NAME: Catalina. My name was given to me as a result of a nationwide contest with nearly 50,000 entries held during our Centennial celebration in 2014.        Source






Charlie was first, and correct, with:
   Catalina
  As I recall, upon Bette Midler's introduction of a mermaid character she wasn't happy about her condition from the waist down.


  Nevermind....




Alan J said:
   Catalina.

Adam answered:
   Didn't know she had one - it's Catalina.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Catalina.....Grace Lee Whitney is credited as being the original Chicken of the Sea Mermaid. (She is mostly famous for playing Yeoman Janice Rand in the first season of the original Star Trek TV series). She just passed away over the weekend.



Marian replied:
   Catalina



Waterlogged Lois Of Oregon said:
   First: When WAS this contest, and why was I not notified!?!
  Second: They named her Catalina? Seriously. Cat-a-lina. A half woman, half fish, and they name here Catalina. How insensitive can one get. I'll show you how insensitive!





Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali answered:
   Catalina is her name. Chicken of the Sea Tuna is now owned by Thai Union Frozen Products PCL, is the world's largest producer of shelf-stable tuna products and is ranked among the largest seafood producers in the world, with annual sales exceeding USD 3.6 billion and a global workforce of over 32,000 people.

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.

Japanese American National Museum

Internment Art

A California museum has acquired an art collection created by Japanese Americans held in internment camps after an East Coast auction house canceled the sale of photographs and other artifacts amid protests.

The Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles will display the collection of art done by people of Japanese descent who were imprisoned over fears that they were spies.

Roughly 120,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated at 10 relocation camps after the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The announcement about the exhibit came during the museum's annual gala dinner, which honored Star Trek actor and activist George Takei with its Distinguished Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement and Public Service.

A young Takei and his family were among those incarcerated during World War II.

Cancels Israel Show

Lauryn Hill

R&B star Lauryn Hill on Monday canceled a concert in Israel just a few days away, saying she had tried unsuccessfully to perform in the Palestinian territories as well.

The former Fugees singer had been scheduled to perform Thursday near Tel Aviv but faced a social media campaign by activists who urged her to boycott Israel over its occupation of Palestinian land.

Hill said that she had wanted to schedule a second show in Ramallah in the West Bank but that the logistics "proved to be a challenge."

"I've wanted very much to bring our live performance to this part of the world, but also to be a presence supporting justice and peace," she wrote on her website.

"It is very important to me that my presence or message not be misconstrued, or a source of alienation to either my Israeli or my Palestinian fans," she said.

Renewed For 2 More Seasons

'The Simpsons'

"The Simpsons" will keep the satire coming for at least two more seasons.

Fox said Monday it has renewed the animated series for its 27th and 28th seasons, which will carry it to a total of 625 episodes.

The network's announcement included a boast from Homer that his doughnut addiction helped him outlast David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Dr. McDreamy from "Grey's Anatomy."

The award-winning comedy has proved a money machine, spawning merchandise, a big-screen movie, video games and a Universal Studios Ride.

Climbing Season Opens

Denali

Hundreds of climbers are expected to attempt to summit North America's tallest peak this season, which has begun.

National Park Service rangers are ready to live on the mountain for the next three months to help with rescues on Mount McKinley Denali.

An average of 1,200 people annually in recent years have tried to reach the top of Mount McKinley Denali, and just more than half succeed in most years. Last season, that number was a low 36 percent because of bad weather, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported.

National Park Service spokeswoman Maureen Gualtieri is stationed at Talkeetna, which is at the mountain's base at Denali National Park and Preserve. In one of her first daily blogs, she said the knee-deep snow was soft as of April 24 and thinned out at the mountain's highest elevations to slightly less than normal.

Casino Closes

Riviera

If the ghosts of Frank Sinatra and Liberace were still hanging around the Riviera Hotel and Casino on Monday morning, they wouldn't have found a seat at the bar.

Crowds squeezed onto barstools and milled about the casino floor saying goodbye to "The Riv," a classic that spent 60 years on the Las Vegas Strip and closed at noon.

It's an age reached by few properties along the four-mile stretch of hulking casino resorts mimicking other worldly landmarks or beckoning passers-by with all their wants in one place that have replaced Sin City's recent past.

The Riviera's only remaining elder was the often-renovated Flamingo that Bugsy Siegel debuted in 1947. The Tropicana, which opened in 1957, is close behind.

Right-Wing Cartoon Event

Texass

Police shot dead two gunmen Sunday outside a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Texas attended by Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders, authorities said.

While no immediate claim of responsibility was made, similar depictions of the Prophet Mohammed prompted a shooting at French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in January that killed 12 people.

US authorities are investigating the shooting and police said it was still unclear if the attack was related to the event.

The right-wing American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) organized the event in a suburb of Dallas, featuring Wilders, who has been outspoken against Muslims and is targeted by radical groups.

'Django Unchained' Actress To Apologize

Daniele Watts

An actress who accused Los Angeles police of mistreating her due to her race during an arrest last year pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace over the incident on Monday and was ordered to write an apology letter to the officers, officials said.

Daniele Watts, best known for her role in Quentin Tarantino's 2012 slavery western "Django Unchained", made headlines last September when she said she had been accosted by police largely because she is black and her boyfriend is white.

Watts and her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas, each pleaded no contest to a count of disturbing the peace by loudness in a Los Angeles court, Los Angeles City Attorney's Office spokesman Rob Wilcox said.

As part of the deal, both will have to serve 40 hours of community service, obey the law, and write apology letters to a sergeant and two officers involved in the arrest and occupants of a building near the scene, Wilcox said.

GOP Distorted Analysis

Benghazi

A former CIA deputy director has written in a new book that Republicans repeatedly distorted the agency's analysis of the Benghazi attack in 2012, it has been reported.

Michael Morell said the events were distorted about the attack that killed the American ambassador to Libya, according to a report in The New York Times.

Morell in his book dismissed the notion that CIA officers and the military "were ordered to stand down" and not come to the aid of their comrades in Benghazi. And he said there is no evidence the Central Intelligence Agency had conspired with the White House to spin the Benghazi story to protect then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Morell's book, "The Great War of Our Time," provides details of his thinking about the Benghazi attack and its aftermath that are the subject of congressional hearings that some in the GOP will likely use to criticize Clinton as the likely Democratic nominee runs for president.

Offer Hope In Pacific

Sea Star Babies

Emerging from a recent dive 40 feet below the surface of Puget Sound, biologist Ben Miner wasn't surprised by what he found: The troubling disease that wiped out millions of sea stars up and down the West Coast had not spared this site along the rocky cliffs of Lopez Island.

He and another diver tallied the grim count on a clipboard he had taken underwater. Only two dozen adult sea stars were found in an area where they were once abundant.

But Miner's chart also revealed good news - a few baby sea stars offered a glimmer of hope for the creature's recovery.

In scattered sites along the Pacific Coast, researchers and others have reported seeing hundreds of juvenile sea stars, buoying hopes for a potential comeback from sea star wasting disease that has caused millions of purple, red and orange sea stars to curl up, grow lesions, lose limbs and disintegrate into a pile of goo.

Miner said juveniles, while not entirely immune, may be less susceptible to a virus fingered as the likely culprit of the sea star wasting disease, a sickness that has devastated about 20 species of sea stars from Alaska to Baja California since it was first reported off the Washington coast in June 2013.

In Memory

Michael Blake

Michael Blake, the writer whose novel "Dances With Wolves" became a major hit movie and earned him an Academy Award for the screenplay, has died.

Blake, 69, died Saturday in Tucson, Arizona, after a long battle with cancer, his business partner, Daniel Ostroff, said.

Blake, who wrote several novels, is best known for "Dances With Wolves," which he wrote while broke at the urging of his longtime friend, the actor Kevin Costner. The novel was fairly unsuccessful, but it became a film after Costner asked Blake to adapt it into a movie. The book went on to sell 3.5 million copies after the success of the movie.

Despite his success, Blake was a humble man who passionately advocated for many causes, including literacy, Native American history and the disappearing of wild horses in the West, said his wife, Marianne Mortensen Blake.

The couple met through the actor Viggo Mortensen, a close friend of Blake's and Mortensen Blake's cousin. They married in 1993 and have three teenage children, all named after Native Americans that the couple admires. Blake is also survived by his brother, Daniel Webb.

Blake was born in North Carolina and lived with his family in Texas before settling in southern California. He attended the University of New Mexico, but he left before graduating. The university now has an archive of his work at the student newspaper and other writings, Ostroff said.

Blake spent several years living out his car and on friends' couches while he wrote the "Dances With Wolves" novel.

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.
