Friday Stuff

Thom Hartmann gives us economic and green news for the week (number of signatories on the climate deal as noted here is 190, for those keeping score at home)...



…and I give you a brief trip for “This Day In Doomsy History” going back about a year to 12/12/14; definitely a loss for us all when FAIR TV went down (though the site is here), and there’s no question that Rolling Stone didn’t follow best practices under any stretch of the imagination in the UVA story, but of course this gives the wingnuts the excuse to blow off the volumes of great work by that magazine, notably Matt Taibbi, Tim Dickinson, and the late Michael Hastings (and as noted previously, speaking of Rich Lowry)…



...and good for Judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo here (NSFW because of the wingnuts)...



...and anyone out there who wonders whether or not this country is slowly turning into a third-world autocracy should watch this video...



...turning to the seasonal stuff, I give you a bit of culture from Eugene Ormandy & The Philadelphia Orchestra ("O Come O Come Emmanuel" - works for Easter too)...



...and nothing like a little Friday soul...



...along with a jazzy take on another seasonal standard...



...and I offer the following without comment.
