David Crosby and Graham Nash entertain Occupy Wall Street. A long time coming, indeed!
For some weird reason they decided to use Herman Cain in the foreground.
OK, I actually didn't watch the Cain news conference, because it was MUCH more entertaining to follow it through Twitter. Apparently he blamed some of his sexual harassment woes on what he called "the Democratic machine" (you mean...Bob Brady?)
Good piece by my friend David Sirota on "The Myth of the Progressive City":
For a candidate who's about to win re-election with 90 percent of the vote, this may be the stupidest waste of money I've ever heard of:
Is it my imagination or does this story say the exact opposite of this front page?
My story for tomorrow's Daily News concludes with something mostly like this (I say "mostly" because they took out the reference to "Camera Three" -- apparently not enough Daily News readers obsessively watch Jon Stewart like I do.)
Political pundits (including Daily News editors), meet me at Camera Three.
For some weird reason this commercial's been on my mind.
This man is shot by Oakland cops with a beanbag bullet for simply exercising his First Amendment right to film them. As we like to say occasionally on the front page of the Daily News....WTF?
Tell me on what planet any of this makes sense. This reporter inteviewed 16-year-old Tariq Aziz (pictured above) -- three days later he was dead. Some stats, too:
Tariq and Waheed’s death brought the total number of children killed in drone strikes to 175, according to the Bureau’s own findings. As part of an ongoing investigation, the Bureau has documented 306 strikes from remotely piloted drones that have killed between 2,359 and 2,959 people. Over 85% of them have been launched by the administration of President Barack Obama.
A fascinating, "experimental" mini-documentary -- good fodder for the current debate.
