Today I was listening to episode 16 of My Brother, My Brother and Me, originally released on Aug 2, 2010.

While answering a question about superstitiously avoiding air travel on the eleventh of September, one brother predicts that March 12, 2020 is the day "you really gotta watch out for", because he has "a bad feeling".

Here's hoping, for his sake, no giant terrorist attack happens on that day.

I have always been suspicious of the “radio edit” and then in the same day I heard original full length versions of Simple Minds’s “Don’t You Forget About Me” and Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” and lemme tell you the people who do these edits are not only geniuses but saints. Those are both AMAZING songs rendered absolute shit by unchecked indulgence.

Glad voters are being reminded of the awfulness of Bloomberg's stop and frisk. Having SCOTUS rule one of your keystone policies unconstitutional because it promotes racial profiling seems like it should disqualify you from being a serious presidential contender.
