Paul Krugman: Republicans Leap Into the Awful Known (NY Times Column)
… at every stage of this political fight [Republican politicians[ have claimed to be doing exactly the opposite of what they're actually doing: covering more people, making health care cheaper, protecting Americans with pre-existing conditions. We're not talking about run-of-the-mill spin here; we're talking about black is white, up is down, dishonesty so raw it's practically surreal. This isn't just an assault on health care, it's an assault on truth itself.

And did I mention that he knows nothing about the complex issues that confront mankind? But plans to solve them by giving huge tax cuts to the uber-wealthy?

Arthur Krystal: Is Cultural Appropriation Ever Appropriate? (LA Review of Books)
So, if a black writer or a Chinese writer or an Egyptian writer wants to write about the Holocaust, which decimated my family, then may the Muse be with you. What do I care about your ethnicity or background as long as you do justice to what happened? It isn't cultural affiliation alone that does justice to injustice, that creates art from human experience. It's art that gives life to a depiction of life. And that has about as much to do with the color of your skin as the number of stars in the sky.

Music We Like

DJ Useo asks - What music do you like enough to tell us about it?

Going with DJ Useo's Kinks theme, I'd have to say there are really few albums with the band which are not way above the contemporary competition. Two I really liked are these:

Ray Davies seemed incapable of writing a dull fill in the time song. In State of Confusion, two songs I particularly liked were Young Conservatives and Heart of Gold.

Chinese Officials Censor

Winnie The Pooh

Officials in China are cracking down on images of Winnie the Pooh proliferating on the internet. The lovable honey-chasing bear's likeness was censored on the nation's top social media platforms over the weekend.

The fictional bear is no longer allowed on Sina Weibo, China's Twitter-esque social media site, the Financial Times reported Sunday. When users attempted to write the Chinese characters for Winnie the Pooh's name on Weibo, they received a message saying "content is illegal." A set of gifs of the character were also removed from WeChat, a popular social messaging app.

No official explanation was given for the censorship of the bear. However, experts said the ban is likely due to netizens comparing the nation's president with the bear. Images of President Xi Jinping have often been juxtaposed with the bear to show their likeness in images that have gone viral on the internet over the past few years.

"Historically, two things have been not allowed: political organizing and political action," Qiao Mu, assistant professor of media at Beijing Foreign Studies University, told the Financial Times. "But this year a third has been added to the list: talking about the president. I think the Winnie issue is part of that trend."

Qiao also said he was aware of social media users being detained after posting about the president on the internet.

Fires Back


Disney is clapping back at Steve Whitmire, who was fired by the company last October after almost three decades of voicing Kermit the Frog for The Muppets.

Whitmire told The Hollywood Reporter that Disney terminated him because they didn't appreciate his character notes during the filming of the short-lived Muppets revival on ABC.

"The first issue was that they felt I had been 'disrespectful' in being outspoken on character issues with the small group of top creative people during the ABC series," Whitmire told the trade publication. "I have been outspoken about what's best for the Muppets since the Muppets came to Disney [in 2004], but the fact is I have respect for everyone who was involved in the creation of that series for their own particular contributions. At the same time, I also have insight into their limitations with respect to how well they know the Muppets."

However, Disney says it was about a lot more than "notes" and that Whitmire's battling over character direction was not only disrespectful, but would cause delays in production.

"The role of Kermit the Frog is an iconic one that is beloved by fans and we take our responsibility to protect the integrity of that character very seriously," a spokesperson for The Muppets Studio told THR in a statement. "We raised concerns about Steve's repeated unacceptable business conduct over a period of many years and he consistently failed to address the feedback. The decision to part ways was a difficult one which was made in consultation with the Henson family and has their full support."

Medical Marijuana Use


Massachusetts' top court on Monday ruled that a woman who had been fired for testing positive for marijuana that she had been legally prescribed under state law could sue her former employer for handicap discrimination.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court rejected the former employer's argument that she could not sue it for handicap discrimination because possessing marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Lawyers for the former employee, Christina Barbuto, said the ruling represents a major win for employees in the state and set a precedent that they said could have an impact in other states where medical marijuana is legal.

Barbuto had accused Advantage Sales and Marketing of firing her after her first day of work because she tested positive for the drug, which she had been prescribed by a doctor to treat low appetite, a side effect of her Crohn's disease.

Chief Justice Ralph Gants wrote that if a doctor concludes medical marijuana is the most effective treatment for an employee's debilitating condition, "an exception to an employer's drug policy to permit its use is a facially reasonable accommodation."

Closes Art Exhibition


Authorities in Genoa have confiscated 21 suspect artworks supposedly by Amedeo Modigliani after confirming that several paintings showcased in a major exhibition at the Doge's Palace were likely fakes.

Earlier this week, the foundation sponsoring the Genoa show decided to shut down exhibit three days early in order to collaborate with latest investigation enveloping the Italian expressionist painter and sculptor, who is one of the world's most famously faked artists.

"They did the right thing. This was absolutely shameful,' said Carlo Pepi, the 79-year-old Tuscan art critic and collector who alerted authorities about the suspected fraud.

Mr Pepi has spent decades battling art fraud. He began publicly expressing doubts about Genoa's Modigliani exhibit in February, when the palace first began promoting it with a reprint of the 1918 oil painting "Marie, daughter of the people."

French art historian Marc Restellini, who is founder of the Pinacothèque de Paris and a Modigliani expert, backed him, calling the exhibit "dubious."



Digby's Hullabaloo


A Laughingstock


The federal government's top ethics chief is resigning on Wednesday. And he's torching the Trump administration on his way out.

Walter M. Shaub Jr., director of the Office of Government Ethics, told the New York Times that Donald Trump's (R-Fabulist) apparent disdain for long-established ethical norms has undermined the credibility of the United States around the world.

"It's hard for the United States to pursue international anticorruption and ethics initiatives when we're not even keeping our own side of the street clean," Shaub told the Times in an article published Monday. "I think we are pretty close to a laughingstock at this point."

Shaub - who has been a vocal critic of Trump's since his election - said the president's frequent trips to his family-owned golf clubs are a microcosm of just how blurry the line between the White House and Trump brand has become.

"It creates the appearance of profiting from the presidency," Shaub said. "Misuse of position is really the heart of the ethics program, and the internationally accepted definition of corruption is abuse of entrusted power. It undermines the government ethics program by casting doubt on the integrity of government decision making."

The Family Turns To Bashing


The Trumps have a main target each time new bombshell reports are published on Russia's influence in the 2016 presidential election: the "fake news" media, with CNN being the bull's-eye.

The media in general has been the subject of a series of attacks from President Donald Trump and his aides since long before his inauguration, as the Republican candidate blasted news outlets over their coverage of his campaign and claimed the election was rigged against him.

But now, as emails from Donald Trump Jr. (R-Sad) seem to indicate he was at least open to Russian government-backed opposition research against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the final months of the campaign season, the first family has once again pointed their criticisms toward CNN, seemingly in the hopes that Trump supporters will continue standing behind the president as they have since he assumed the Oval Office.

Eric Trump (R-Sadder), the executive vice president of the Trump organization, who regularly tweets his disdain for the media, once again directly called out CNN reporters on Twitter Monday morning, after the network's senior White House correspondent wrote Sunday, "Calling the American news media 'fake news' may feel good to some. It may energize the base. But it's bad for our democracy."



Mar-a-Lago Visitor Records


A US court has asked Donald Trump's (R-Crooked) staff to turn over records of visitors to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, according to a ruling made public Monday.

As president, Trump has visited his southern bolthole -- which he calls the "Winter White House" -- seven times between February and May when it closed for the season, according to an AFP tally.

The constant string of visitors raised transparency concerns and prompted a legal challenge from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

In response, a New York court has asked the Secret Service to turn over records of the people who visited Trump by September 8.

"The public deserves to know who is coming to meet with the president and his staff," CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said.

Mulls Run For Senate

Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner has joined the list of celebrities who are considering running for political office in the United States following the election of former reality television star Donald Trump (R-Corrupt) as president.

Jenner, who as former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner in 2015 became the highest-profile American to transition to a woman, said she would decide in the next six months or so whether to run for the U.S. Senate in California.

Jenner told John Catsimatidis on his "CATS Roundtable" New York radio show on Sunday, that she is working with activist groups to improve the Republican Party's stance on lesbian, gay and transgender issues.

Jenner, 67, is a Republican but in February she criticized the Trump administration for reversing a federal directive that allowed transgender students to use public school bathrooms of their choice.

Linked To Weight Gain

Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners are found in a plethora of products from cough syrups to salad dressings, but new research claims that the sugar alternative could actually lead to weight gain.

The chances of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity are linked to consuming artificial sweeteners, according to the new large-scale study on the effects of the sugar substitute.

The research was conducted by scientists from the University of Manitoba, Canada and reviewed data from 37 studies which analysed more than 400,000 people for an average period of 10 years.

"The results showed a statistically significant association between consumption of artificial sweeteners and higher risks of diabetes and heart disease, as well as increased weight gain," lead author of the study, Dr Meghan Azad told the Press Association.

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.
