Josh Marshall: Cowardice and Freedom (TPM)
As I wrote over the weekend, we're in an odd period. The American experiment is a kind of de facto exile, perhaps an internal exile, but an exile still. The good news is that the majority doesn't support Trumpism. But Trumpism has taken possession of the key powers of the state. It will require being aggressively American to beat back Bannon's thuggish practices and contempt for the habits of free people.

Garrison Keillor: Trump is your old uncle with better lighting (Washington Post)
His rants aren't anything we haven't heard before.

Mary Beard: Snowflakes
In my long experience (including being a student myself), students protest about many different things. Some of it is irritating, some of it is silly and some of it is absolutely spot on and makes people change their views. If you asked me to define the duties of a student I would certainly include speaking up and protesting about what they see as wrong. That indeed has been the launch pad for all kinds of reforms, from well before 1968. And they have a much clearer view than many of us oldies.

"You may have thought you were unreachable, but history makes some moments teachable; Someday [Vice President Mike] Pence may be impeachable, too."

He seems like a decent enough guy, but he has been propelled to internet stardom mostly because he doesn't look or act like a Batman villain.

With The Godfather and Chinatown, Robert Evans revolutionised the movie industry. Now, Simon McBurney is staging the mogul's scandalous memoir, The Kid Stays in the Picture. They talk about art, life and America.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the more common term for mythomania?

       Pathological Lying                                                      Source

Pathological lying (also called pseudologia fantastica and mythomania) is a behavior of habitual or compulsive lying. It was first described in the medical literature in 1891 by Anton Delbrueck.Although it is a controversial topic,[2] pathological lying has been defined as "falsification entirely disproportionate to any discernible end in view, may be extensive and very complicated, and may manifest over a period of years or even a lifetime". The individual may be aware they are lying, or may believe they are telling the truth. Sometimes however, the individual may be lying to make their life seem more exciting when in reality they believe their life is unpleasant or boring.        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   Uncontrollable or pathological lying

Alan J said:
   Pathological Lying.

   A more common term for mythomania is Donald Trump press conference.

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:

Adam answered:
   The Mirriam-Webster page would not load (did Trump get to you, Mirriam-Webster?), but Wikipedia says it is Pathological Lying.

Deborah replied:
   We have a mythomaniac in the White House. Maybe more than one.
  Mythomania is the excessive or abnormal propensity for lying and exaggeration.

DJ Useo responded:
   Garsh, I don't know...

Joe S     answered:
   Oh lord, I was going to make up this elaborate story about the joy of lying and Donald Trump but I looked it up first so I would know what mythomania really is. Turns out I don't have to make up anything.

Replacing Beyonce At Coachella

Lady Gaga

Just this year, Lady Gaga's performed at the Super Bowl and Grammys… and now she's headed to Coachella.

Gaga confirmed on her Twitter Tuesday night that she'll be headlining Coachella, replacing Beyonce, who opted out of the festival due to her pregnancy. Beyonce will, however, headline Coachella in 2018, the festival announced earlier this month. Gaga will be performing on April 15 and 22.

The Coachella headlining gig adds to an already busy year for Gaga. In February alone, she performed the Super Bowl halftime show, and went full rocker with Metallica at the Grammys.

Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar are also headlining Coachella, with Radiohead performing on April 14 and 21 and Lamar performing on April 16 and 23.

Memoirs Reach $60 Million


'The rights for Barack and Michelle Obama's memoirs will sell for at least $60 million, according to a report from the Financial Times.

The eventual total price tag will include a book from both the former President and First Lady. The couple plans to write their memoirs separately, but sell the rights of their finished accounts together as a package, according to the Financial Times report.

Penguin Random House, who published former President Obama's three other books, reportedly leads the chase, but HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and Macmillan are also in the hunt, according to the Financial Times.

The bid would shatter the previous record for a presidential memoir, which is held by Bill Clinton. His account sold for $15 million upon the completion of his presidency back in 2000.

French Petition


More than 40,000 people have signed a spoof petition calling for Barack Obama to be the next president of France.

As France prepares for its general election in May, an unofficial campaign has been launched to "bring France out of its apathy" and elect Barack Obama as France's new president.

""We would like to make a big splash in electing a foreign president as head of our beautiful country," reads the campaign's manifesto.

"Barack Obama completed his second presidential term as POTUS on the 21 January, why not hire him as president of France?" the manifesto says.

The campaign is hoping for 1 million pledges to vote for the former POTUS in order to convince Obama to stand in the next election.

First English Library To Open


Mossab Abu Toha has never actually left Gaza, instead devouring books as an escape. Now he is struggling to open the first English-language library in the beleaguered Palestinian territory.

"Send us books in English, new or used," says the 24-year-old reading enthusiast on his Facebook page.

Abu Toha, like so many Gazans effectively trapped in the Palestinian enclave by Israeli and Egyptian restrictions, dreams of travelling.

"Freedom begins when one frees one's mind," said the young graduate in English literature from the Islamic University of Gaza, who shares his passion by teaching Shakespeare at a United Nations school.

"I have read dozens of books in English, and with them I can travel to every country in the world and through all periods. I feel like I am in another world."

FCC Chairman Says It Was A Mistake

Net Neutrality

FCC chairman Ajit Pai said today that net neutrality was "a mistake" and that the commission is now "on track" to return to a much lighter style of regulation.

"Our new approach injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market," Pai said during a speech at Mobile World Congress this afternoon. "And uncertainty is the enemy of growth."

Pai has long been opposed to net neutrality and voted against the proposal when it came up in 2015. While he hasn't specifically stated that he plans to reverse the order now that he's chairman, today's speech suggests pretty clearly that he's aiming to.

Pai's argument is that internet providers were doing just fine under the old rules and that the new ones have hurt investment. Both of those points are highly debatable - there's little competition in the wired broadband market, and Consumerist investigated the investment claims in early 2016 and found that internet providers were estimated to spend more in the coming year.

Amazon's Cloud

A few months ago, Amazon scored a major hire. It convinced Adrian Cockcroft to come work for the company as VP Cloud Architecture Strategy.

But he's best known for his years at Netflix as Amazon Web Services' most famous first customer. He led the project, way back in 2009, to have Netflix build out its movie streaming service on AWS and not use its own data centers. That was an insane decision at the time. Cloud computing back then was mostly known as a crummy, unreliable and perhaps unsafe alternative to owning your own computers. When, in 2010, Netflix started to publicly talk about that decision, the world thought Netflix was being somewhere between idiotic and reckless.

Flash forward to early 2017 and the world loves AWS and all cloud computing and companies are racing to put their businesses on it. Cockcroft's main job at AWS is to talk to companies doing what Netflix did back in the day - get rid of their data centers and go all in on AWS.

But sometimes the downside of relying on cloud services like Amazon's can become painfully evident.

And unfortunately that was the case on Tuesday when at the very moment Cockcroft was on stage making the case for AWS, a good chunk of the internet had been taken down (including Business Insider's site) because AWS' computer storage service, S3, was suffering major technical problems.

Peculiar Tie

Climate Change

Global warming could mean that mountain snow melts at a slower pace, researchers said Monday, a peculiar finding that might be bad news for the West and other regions that depend on snow for water.

Scientists have long known the annual snowmelt is starting sooner as the climate warms. New research by the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, found that when the snow begins to melt earlier in the season, it dissipates more slowly than it does in late spring or summer, in part because the angle of the early year sun is lower so its rays are less intense.

The sun's intensity is particularly important because the energy in direct sunlight is the biggest driver of snowmelt, said Keith Musselman, the lead researcher.

Another factor that slows the snowmelt in the early season is the fact that nights are still cooler.

The conclusions, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, could help explain why computer models show rivers fed by mountain snow are expected to run lower in a warming climate, even if rainfall increases as snowfall decreases, said Musselman, a post-doctoral fellow at the Boulder research center.

Top U.S. Magazine Brand Rankings

German Automakers

German automakers dominated Consumer Reports' annual ranking of automotive brands released on Tuesday, with Volkswagen AG's Audi leading the pack, while U.S. brands continued to lag despite gains for many.

Jake Fisher, director of auto testing at the magazine, said German automakers rose largely due to improvements in reliability. "Building one or two great vehicles is achievable, but making a whole lineup of excellent ones is much more difficult," Fisher said.

Volkswagen's Porsche unit and rival BMW AG came in second and third. General Motors Co's Buick brand was the highest-ranked U.S. brand in 10th, down from seventh in 2016, while Ford Motor Co's Lincoln brand was 15th, up from 17th. The Ford brand fell from 16th to 21th.

GM's Chevrolet brand moved up to 17th from 20th and its Cadillac brand moved up to 18th from 24th.

Toyota Motor Corp's flagship brand fell from eighth to 11th place, falling out of the top 10 for the first time in recent years, after the magazine said its Tacoma pickup had reliability issues. Toyota's luxury Lexus unit fell from third to fourth.

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.
