The $945 million in lottery money for education is “telling ‘em only what they need to know” news. It’s one piece of a pie, so throw out a pie chart of who got what. This kind of news seems to result in a bigger rake off for the public administrators.

This girl. Nay, this ninja… I expect Jack Bauer to recruit her soon.

Her level of bad-a$$ery is something I havent seen in a while. In total awe.

ETA: Oops. This was supposed to be in reply to Bridget’s link above.

MTV might get more viewers if they would go back to showing music videos again.

Ed July 17, 2014 at 11:50 am

Or had good music.

drjay July 17, 2014 at 11:50 am

you know i used to think that too, and would often joke/complain about how there is no music on “music” tv any more…but i watch how my teenager consumes music videos via you tube and on artists web pages and i am now not sure videos on mtv are essential, needed or even really wanted anymore

Maybe MTV is really just a tax writeoff for the parent company.

Ed July 17, 2014 at 12:16 pm

Am I out of touch? No, it’s the children who are wrong!

I cannot remember the last time KISS was on MTV so yes, I concur, MTV sucks.

Ed July 17, 2014 at 1:11 pm

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction? “KISS Unplugged”? Come on!

MattMD July 17, 2014 at 1:19 pm

The Unplugged was around 20 years ago.

Holy crap I feel old now.

Things that you do stoned – http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/07/the-weed-boogeyman-under-the-bed-108984.html?hp=pm_1 – anti-legalization folks are relying on misinformation to try and slow marijuana decriminalization. Meanwhile bureaucrats are already into over regulation even though Colorado has only 6 months of data on which to base new regulations.

Thanks for the news, Ms. S.

Stay armed and stay free!

I don’t see why Reed was so surprised by the Braves moving out to the suburbs. That action isn’t exactly unprecedented in other cities.

Besides, they are basically going to straddle the Perimenter, it isn’t like they moved to Forsyth, Co. or something.

Ed July 17, 2014 at 1:12 pm

“The Braves are fleeing to the suburbs” is my favorite overreaction/barely true statement of the year.

MattMD July 17, 2014 at 1:24 pm

It just stems from that ITP/OTP nonsense.
