DeSantis says he won't send him to NYC for the arraignment.

He should do his usual and send him to Martha's Vineyard, where the rule of law is justice and not the ravings of vindictive bigots

Nickel Creek's new album "Celebrants"

This group has grown up recording and touring. But it's been a while. Then recently they recorded this mind blowing collection of original music. It's been available for a few days. I've been a fan for 20 years and am so loving this new venture. Please have a listen


A fine review by NPR: https://www.npr.org/2023/03/24/1165593498/nickel-creek-created-its-own-world

Nowhere to Run to, Knowhere to Hide

Re: DeSantis attacks on journalism gets ire of backer Koch....

"...a spokesperson for Americans for Prosperity told The Intercept in regards to its lobbying against the bills. “One of the ways we do that is protect people from frivolous lawsuits targeting their speech by making it possible for judges to quickly review and dismiss bogus cases aimed at silencing opponents.”

“While our focus on this bill was on addressing the sections that would undermine those hard-won reforms, if those sections are changed, we will be neutral on the bill but not supportive of it,” the spokesperson went on. “We do not support the other aspects of the bill that are in direct opposition to the First Amendment.”

This is what Putin does constantly, everywhere. Including here at home. Can't we expose his cheesy, underhanded methods of tearing us apart? All of us.

Kevin McCarthy gets the Keith Olbermann treatment

So much more explosive than what I'm hearing from my fave MSNBC host these days - Nicolle Wallace. He makes the case that the way the tapes were obtained was a crime by McCarthy.

Ohio train derailment and Pete Buttigieg.

I can only find negative coverage of him. Surely he and his department are hard at work on this. Apparently Google is clueless as to what. But there are many nasty articles a click away.


If anyone finds info on the progress of the transportation dept over the disaster, please post it. He seems to be back footed.

I need to vent...

I took a gig singing in a funeral for $100. It went well enough as funerals go. Then on my way home to my hubby (who hates being left alone) I was stuck in hellish traffic owing to a crash at an interchange. That caused much stopping, lane changing, inability to see what's ahead, UNLESS you're in a big rig. After 45 minutes of what normally takes 5 minutes I arrived at the scene of the accident. Many police cars, wrecked vehicles and cones. Still one couldn't really see what was happening ahead from the dashboard of my Prius. I just knew I wasn't going to allow any more big rigs cut in front of me. So as I try to have no daylight between my car and the car ahead of me, a big rig is suddenly on top of me and I'm being scraped by that thing on the driver's side of our little Prius. A highway patrol guy tells me I was in his lane. But there were no lanes!!! And I was ahead of him! We were just in a creeping stream of cars trying not to lose our minds.

After assessing the "ding", I'm guessing $600 of body work. So much for an extra $100. Anybody know if this kind of dent can be taken care of cheaply?

Former Putin Crime Emerges

Dutch Prosecutors Implicate Putin In 2014 Plane Crash That Killed All 298 On Board


It may prove to be another despicable crime going unpunished, leading to more of the same.

"THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — An international team of investigators said Wednesday it found “strong indications” that Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the supply of heavy anti-aircraft weapons to Ukrainian separatists who shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in 2014 with a Russian missile.

However, members of the Joint Investigation Team said they had insufficient evidence to prosecute Putin or any other suspects and they suspended their 8½-year inquiry into the shooting down that killed all 298 people on board the Boeing 777 flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur."
