Josh Marshall: Takeover Complete (TPM)
Over the last few years, […] you could hear more and more Republicans saying something like this: We thought it was this great thing that we had our own cable news network as an arm of the GOP or the conservative movement, echoing talking points, spinning the news. But at a certain point we realized Fox News wasn't working for us. We're working for Fox News.
Andrew Tobias: Still No THERE There
One of the things we can tell all our friends in blue states like California and New York is that this time your vote really does matter. In addition to winning the Electoral College, we need to show an enormous win in the popular vote. First, to minimize the chance Trump will be able to persuade people the election was "rigged" and that, really, he was the people's choice. Second, to show the world America has not lost its mind.
Roman Polanski Drugged & Raped Me When I Was 13 (Cracked)
In 1977, when Samantha was 13, acclaimed film director Roman Polanski invited her to be the subject of a photo shoot. During the shoot, he gave Sam alcohol and a Quaalude, then raped her. He fled to Europe during the subsequent trial, where he still lives today. […] We talked to her about what it's like to live life as a prop in a celebrity's rape scandal in a country that still has no goddamned idea what to think about sexual assault victims.
John William "Johnny" Carson (October 23, 1925 - January 23, 2005) was an American television talk show host and comedian, best known for his 30 years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962-1992). Carson received six Emmy Awards, the Governor's Award, and a 1985 Peabody Award. He was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1987. Johnny Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1992 and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 1993.[
On May 13, 1994, Carson appeared on Late Show with David Letterman. During a week of shows from Los Angeles, Letterman was having Larry "Bud" Melman (Calvert DeForest) deliver his "Top Ten Lists" under the guise that a famous personality would be delivering the list, instead. On the last show of the week, Letterman indicated that Carson would be delivering the list. Instead, DeForest delivered the list, insulted the audience (in keeping with the gag), and walked off to polite applause. Letterman then indicated that the card he was given did not have the proper list on it and asked that the "real" list be brought out. On that cue, the real Carson emerged from behind the curtain (as Letterman's band played "Johnny's Theme"), an appearance that prompted a standing ovation from the audience. Carson then asked to sit behind Letterman's desk; Letterman obliged, as the audience continued to cheer and applaud. After some moments, Carson departed from the show without having spoken to the audience. He later cited acute laryngitis as the reason for his silence. This turned out to be Carson's last television appearance.
Alan J was first and correct with:
The Late Show, starring David Letterman.
I think Johnny Carson's last TV appearance was on Late Night with David Letterman
The Late Show with Jay Leno
The Late Show With David Letterman in 1994.
Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
I saw this....
Late Show with David Letterman
David Letterman's "Late Show." He delivered that day's Top 10 list.
Happy Birthday, BttBBob!

Their numbers decimated by a vicious facial cancer, Tasmanian devils seem to be pulling back from the brink of extinction through lightning-fast genetic evolution, astonished scientists said on Tuesday.
A detailed comparison of the genomes of 294 devils, before and after the cancer emerged 20 years ago, revealed species-wide adaptations in seven genes over just four to six devil generations.
Five of the genes are associated with immunity and cancer resistance in mammals.
"The devils are evolving," study co-author Andrew Storfer of Washington State University told AFP. "Remarkably, this evolution was quite rapid."
Evolution within a species through the acquisition of lasting and beneficial genetic traits in response to factors such as environment or disease, is generally thought to be a long, slow process.
A U.S. court has the authority to hear a trademark lawsuit by grocery chain Trader Joe's against a man who purchased the company's products and resold them in Canada at "Pirate Joe's," a store designed to mimic a real Trader Joe's, a federal appeals court said Friday.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a district court's decision to dismiss California-based Trader Joe's federal trademark claims.
The district court in Washington state said it lacked authority to hear those claims because the defendant's alleged trademark violations occurred in Canada and Trader Joe's had failed to clearly explain how they affected U.S. commerce.
The 9th Circuit said defendant Michael Hallatt's conduct could harm Trader Joe's reputation, decreasing the value of its American-held trademarks.
Circuit Judge Morgan Christen also pointed out that Hallatt bought the Trader Joe's goods he resold in Washington state.

With more than two-thirds of Baltimore's 200 murders this year unsolved, many violent criminals are staying a step ahead of the law. The police department hoped to even the score by quietly taking to the skies to record everything visible in the streets below, 32 square miles at a time.
Unbeknownst to the mayor, state's attorney or other city officials, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis agreed to let Persistent Surveillance Systems try out its time-traveling technology over Baltimore.
The Ohio-based company captured roughly 300 hours of images using powerful cameras from a small plane in January and February, June and August. Analysts then zoomed in on crime scenes, moving backward and forward in time among the images to see suspects arriving and getting away. Officers were alerted to their locations to make arrests, and some of these people now await trial.
Davis defended the technology after the tryout's existence was revealed Tuesday by Bloomberg Businessweek, instantaneously inspiring widespread outrage and criticism that an entire city's citizens could lose civil liberties without so much as a public hearing.
The disclosure came at a time when the Baltimore Police Department is under increased scrutiny: just two weeks ago the U.S. Department of Justice released a scathing report outlining widespread discrimination and use of excessive force in the department within the department.
John Lennon's killer will remain behind bars after being denied parole for the ninth time.
The New York state Board of Parole on Monday announced that it has again denied parole to Mark David Chapman, who on Dec. 8, 1980, shot and killed the former Beatle outside his luxury Manhattan apartment.
The 61-year-old Chapman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is serving a sentence of 20-years to life in Wende Correctional Facility in western New York.
In a description of its decision, the parole board noted that Chapman has since described the murder as "selfish and evil." The board concluded that the factors supporting Chapman's parole were outweighed by the premediated and "celebrity-seeking" nature of the crime.
Chapman was notified of the board's decision last week. He was last denied parole in 2014, and will be eligible to seek parole again in 2018.
Pop star Chris Brown was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday after a daylong standoff and search at his Los Angeles home that began when a woman called 911, police said.
Brown, 27, denied any wrongdoing in posts on Instagram before he was taken into custody and said that he had woken up to find police outside and that they would need a warrant to enter the property in the Tarzana neighborhood in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.
Police who responded to the 911 emergency call spent hours surrounding the home before obtaining a search warrant and beginning a search of the sprawling premises in the early afternoon.
During that search TMZ posted a photo of Brown standing outside the home with a police officer and his attorney, Mark Geragos. Geragos could not be reached by Reuters for comment.
