I've been busy as triplets this week between trying to keep up with y'all, the craziness the news brings each day, and fielding annoyances here (don't ask) while feeling plain damn lousy. Y'all can safely bet that I have a list for the doc tomorrow -- update forthcoming.
* I smiled when I read that Tom Petty, one of my favorite rockers, had his attorneys issue a cease and desist order to keep Michelle Bachmann from continuing to use his song "American Girl". I guess she flunked copyright law along with American history. And it's prolly a bad idea anyway since it was the song the Congressman's daughter was playing just before Hannibal Lector kidnapped her in "Silence of the Lambs" -- not a positive image.
* Digby over at Hullabaloo made this excellent statement: "Maybe after a full blown depression or a long and painful lost decade people will ask whether any of this makes sense. Right now, there's just nothing to do but fasten your seatbelt and hope you make it out of the train wreck alive."
* Rachel Maddow covered the delivery of the over a half million signatures to repeal SB 5 Ohio's union-busting bill to Columbus yesterday here. There was, of course, a parade. We celebrate well here. :) And here's the truck so you can see what that many petitions look like (it's only about a minute long):
* And if you haven't signed Bernie Sanders' petition yet, you can sign it here. I kept track of it yesterday and approximately 1,000 signers an hour. Good stuff! And pass it on!!!!
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!
