Paul Krugman: Recovery Cockroaches (NY Times Blog)
Many years ago a long-time policy wonk gave me a very useful metaphor. Bad ideas, he explained, are like cockroaches: no matter how many times you flush them down the toilet, they just keep coming back. And I guess this is always true. Still, economic debate since the 2008 crisis has seemed unusually cockroach-infested: bad arguments just keep coming back, no matter how totally they have been refuted by evidence.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The Mamas & the Papas had only one number-one hit in the US. What is the title?

       "Monday, Monday                                                      Source

The Mamas & the Papas were an American folk rock vocal group that recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968, reuniting briefly in 1971. They released five studio albums and seventeen singles, six of which made the top ten, and sold close to 40 million records worldwide. The group was composed of John Phillips (1935-2001), Denny Doherty (1940-2007), Cass Elliot (1941-1974), and Michelle Phillips née Gilliam (b. 1944). Their sound was based on vocal harmonies arranged by John Phillips, the songwriter, musician, and leader of the group who adapted folk to the new beat style of the early sixties.

The quartet's debut album, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears, followed in February 1966 and became its only number-one on the Billboard 200. The third and final single from the album, "Monday, Monday", was released in March 1966. It became the band's only number-one hit in the US, reached number three in the UK, and was the first number-one on Spain's new Los 40 Principales. "Monday, Monday" won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1967. It was also nominated for Best Performance by a Vocal Group, Best Contemporary Song, and Record of the Year.        Source

Rips Palin

Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel had to set Sarah Palin straight about the validity of global warming by sharing a video of actual scientists saying the issue isn't a hoax.

Palin has been publicly supporting a "documentary" that says climate change isn't real. The late-night host was clearly bothered by her statements, especially when she said she didn't buy what 97% of scientists have said about the reality of climate change.

"The idea that she knows more than 97% of scientists is offensive. It's dangerous," Kimmel said. "No matter what Sarah Palin and these geniuses she surrounds herself with try to tell you, climate change is not a liberal-versus-conservative thing. But the people who profit from ignoring it want you to believe it is."

Kimmel went on to explain how companies that profit from (and even contribute to) global warming are behind politicians, mostly conservative ones, who oppose the majority of scientists' findings.

"This isn't a matter of political opinion," Kimmel added. "It's a matter of scientific opinion. In this case, overwhelming scientific opinion."

72 Journalists Killed In 2015

Press Freedom Day

Somali journalists frequently receive threats, with many being killed. But police rarely investigate them or adequately protect reporters, according to Human Rights Watch, which on Tuesday marked World Press Freedom Day by issuing a report on the dangers faced by Somali journalists.

The deadliest country for journalists in 2015 was Syria, where 14 were killed, followed by France with nine, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. Around the world, 72 journalists were killed in 2015 and 10 have been killed so far this year.

Turkey's main journalism association called World Press Freedom Day one for reflection, solidarity and "finding a way out" of the rapidly deteriorating state of media freedom in the country. Since January, the government seized the largest circulation opposition newspaper; two journalists were put on trial for spying for their reports on alleged government arms smuggling to Syrian rebels; and several pro-Kurdish journalists were detained over their reports on fighting between government forces and the Kurdish rebels.

In Finland UNESCO's Director General Irina Bokova opened the World Press Freedom Day conference by calling the killing of hundreds of journalists, with near complete impunity, "intolerable and unacceptable," and urged all countries to prosecute those who threaten and attack media workers.

Author Takes On Occupation

Michael Chabon

American author Michael Chabon's Jewish identity has long been central to his work.

From 2001's Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" -- the story of two Jewish cousins before, during and after World War II -- to 2007's "The Yiddish Policemen's Union", Chabon's novels have delved into what it means to be Jewish, especially in America.

Like many American Jews, Chabon has also long felt a connection to Israel, visiting the country first in 1992 with his Israeli-born wife, fellow author Ayelet Waldman.

But his most recent visit, which included a trip to the Palestinian territories with a number of prominent American authors, has raised hackles among some in the Jewish state.

"(For) a people who went through such a horrific, prolonged persecution, to turn around and eventually oppress another people at such a mass bureaucratic level is somehow to me much more dismaying than apartheid -- as horrible as apartheid was, and I am not trying to diminish it."

Adopts New Nickname

Bob Hope Airport

Bob Hope Airport has adopted a new nickname: "Hollywood Burbank Airport."

The name was picked by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority in the hopes of drumming up some new business, particularly among fliers from east of the Rocky Mountains. The airport's legal name will remain "Bob Hope Airport."

"We believe the Hollywood Burbank branding identity will let passengers know that they have more than one airport choice when they fly into the Los Angeles Basin," Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority President Frank Quintero said. "The city of Burbank is known as the media capital of the world and we want to promote its proximity to popular centers of entertainment."

In January, the airport authority hired Anyone Collective LLC, a brand management firm, to conduct research and develop a "brand identity that would more strongly identify the airport's geographic location."

Third Leading Cause Of Death In US

Medical Error

Medical error is the third largest cause of death in the United States, according to an analysis published Wednesday in the medical journal BMJ.

In 2013, at least 250,000 people died not from the illnesses or injuries that prompted them to seek hospital care but from preventable mistakes, according to the study.

That number exceeds deaths from strokes and Alzheimer's combined, and is topped only by heart disease and cancer, which each claim about 600,000 lives per year.

The death toll from medical mishaps would be even higher if nursing homes and out-patient care were included, the researchers found.

Experts do not know the exact number of people who die from botched surgeries, faulty prescriptions, or a computer glitch simply because no one is keeping count.

Where Intimidation Works


An anti-abortion activist intended to intimidate a Wichita physician when she sent a letter suggesting someone might place an explosive under the doctor's car, a Justice Department lawyer told jurors in opening statements in her civil trial Tuesday.

Lawyers for Angel Dillard, however, have said the remark was a warning meant to help Dr. Mila Means, who was training to become an abortion provider at the time. Attorney Theresa Sidebotham said during her opening remarks that the government is trying to silence the free expression of views it disagrees with, and she assured jurors that Dillard only believes in peaceful opposition to abortion rights.

At the time Dillard sent her letter to Means, abortions hadn't been openly performed in Wichita since the killing murder of Dr. George Tiller two years earlier. Tiller, who was one of the nation's few late-term abortion providers, was gunned down by an anti-abortion zealot while at his church in Wichita.

Dillard wrote that thousands of people from throughout the U.S. were scrutinizing Means' background and would know her "habits and routines." "They know where you shop, who your friends are, what you drive, where you live," the letter said. "You will be checking under your car everyday - because maybe today is the day someone places an explosive under it."

Means eventually decided not to offer abortion services at her medical practice.

Mis-Identified Flag-Raiser?

Iwo Jima

The author of a best-selling book about his father and other men who raised a U.S. flag at Iwo Jima during World War II said Tuesday he no longer believes his father was in an iconic photograph of the event.

James Bradley, who wrote the book "Flags of Our Fathers," said in a telephone interview that questions raised about the photo by two amateur historians, which have prompted a Marine Corps investigation, led him to think back on comments his father made about the 1945 flag-raising. Those comments by John Bradley, who died in 1994, now lead James Bradley to believe his father participated in an earlier flag-raising, but not the one captured in the famous picture.

AP photographer Joe Rosenthal shot the photo on Feb. 23, 1945, on Mount Suribachi, only days into a bloody battle with the Japanese that would stretch on for weeks. The picture was displayed on front pages of newspapers across the U.S., later was used in a war bond sale and was depicted in the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Virginia.

Since 1947, the Marines have identified the Iwo Jima flag-raisers as John Bradley, Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, Harlon Block, Michael Strank and Franklin Sousley. All were Marines except Bradley, who was a Navy corpsman.

On Monday, the Marine Corps announced it had begun investigating whether it mistakenly identified one of the men after history buffs Eric Krelle, of Omaha, Nebraska, and Stephen Foley, of Wexford, Ireland, began raising doubts about the matter. They argued that the man believed to be Bradley actually was Sousley, and that the person for decades thought to be Sousley was Harold Henry Schultz, who previously wasn't thought to have any connection to the flag-raising.

Prosecutors Dropping Dispensary Case


Federal prosecutors have agreed to drop a nearly four-year effort to seize the property of a California medical marijuana dispensary billed as the nation's largest, the dispensary's attorney said Tuesday.

Henry Wykowski, the attorney for Harborside Health Center in Oakland, said prosecutors did not explain why they were dropping their civil forfeiture case against Harborside. He said the paperwork still has to be filed with the court, which he expected would happen this week.

"It's a wonderful victory for the patients," Wykowski said at a news conference. "It's a wonderful victory for the industry."

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Northern California had no comment, spokesman Abraham Simmons said. Former U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag said at the time she began the process to seize Harborside's property in 2012 that it violated federal law by selling pot, even though medical marijuana was legal in California.

The federal government's decision to end the case against Harborside would be the second time in recent months it has backed off a California medical marijuana dispensary. Prosecutors dropped their appeal of a judge's October ruling in a similar case against the Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana.

Group Opposed To Museum Halts Lawsuit

George Lucas

A Chicago parks protection group that is fighting a proposed lakefront museum by "Star Wars" filmmaker George Lucas has agreed to halt its lawsuit while alternative sites are discussed, the group said on Tuesday.

Friends of the Parks said that due to serious discussion of possible museum sites away from the lakefront, it was agreeing to a motion filed by the city of Chicago to stay the lawsuit.

"The legal stay ... will give all parties the opportunity to have a more direct and productive dialogue to reach a potential solution about a museum site," the group said in a statement on its website.

Friends of the Parks filed the lawsuit in 2014 to block the transfer of the lakefront spot near Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears football team, from the city to the museum. The lawsuit argued that the museum would violate the public use policy on the shore of Lake Michigan.

A motion for the lawsuit to be suspended was filed by the city on Monday in U.S. District Court, and it will be heard by a federal judge next week, the statement said.

In Memory

Afeni Shakur Davis

The Marin County Sheriff's office reported Tuesday morning that Afeni Shakur Davis, the mother of late rapper Tupac Shakur, died Monday night at age 69.

Shakur (born Alice Faye Williams) was born in Lumberton, N.C., on Jan. 10, 1947, and was known as a political activist and former member of the Black Panther party. In April 1969, she and a number of other Black Panthers were arrested and charged with several counts of conspiracy to bomb police stations and other public places in New York.

She was pregnant during her trial on the charges and gave birth to son Tupac Amaru Shakur on June 16, 1971. After struggling for a period in the 1980s with a drug problem that lead to an estrangement from the budding rapper, Afeni got clean in the early 1990s and reconciled with Tupac, who chronicled her struggles in his song "Dear Mama."

After Tupac was killed in a still-unsolved drive-by shooting in 1996, Afeni became an executor of his estate, founding Amaru Entertainment to release her son's posthumous albums and the Tupac Amaru Foundation for the Arts charity, which helps young people get involved in the arts. She was also instrumental in helping to bring the musical Holler If Ya Hear Me to Broadway in 2014.

Afeni was an executive producer on All Eyez on Me, an upcoming biographical drama about her son's life starring Demetrius Shipp Jr.

Tupac Shakur's estate released a statement on Tuesday, calling Shakur Davis "a pioneer for social change and was committed to building a more peaceful world."

An egret lands near its nest (unseen) in Panbazar area at the banks of the Brahmaputra River in Guwahati, India, on May 3, 2016. During this season of the year, hundreds of egrets build their nests in trees in Panbazar, which is a major business center of Guwahati city. With the expansion of the city and proliferation of high-rise buildings, many trees of this area have been cut down, and as a result, egrets are quickly losing their breeding habitat.
