Snopes took my KKK endorsement of Obama away

Apparently there is an email going around which contains the following “news” story:

White supremacist group the Ku Kux Klan has endorsed Barack Obama to be the next president of the United States. Speaking from his Kentucky office in Dawson Springs, the Imperial Wizard exclaimed that anything or anyone is better than having that “crazy ass bitch” as President.

Sadly Snopes debunks what would have been one of most wonderful stories ever. And, I think, a nice endorsement of Hillary.

A moment of silence for one of the greats … CBGB founder Hilly Kristal

cbgbMr. K was 75 and died from lung cancer about a year after a dispute with the landlord forced him to close the club which brought us the Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie, Patti Smith: aka 75% of the music of my adolescence. To my everlasting regret despite living in New York from ’81 to ’85 I never got to the club. At least I made it to Max’s Kansas City before it closed. And to kill whatever chance I might have had of actually having any cool cred let me say that I made it to Max’s for lunch. Yeah, I’m hardcore.

FYI: The complete name was CBGB & OMFUG which stood for Country, Bluegrass and Blues & Other Music For Uplifting Gourmandisers.

Wear the brand, be the brand, use the brand

Quoth Reuters: "Middle-schoolers who sport alcohol-branded T-shirts and caps may start to drink sooner than their peers, according to a new study. The findings, researchers point out, are similar to those of studies from the 1990s that linked cigarette-branded merchandise to a greater risk of adolescent smoking. It's uncertain whether clothes or bags with beer logos encourage some kids to start drinking."

I'm not sure but I think kids were drinking before the advent of clothes or bags with beer logos. Just saying …
ramones shirtBTW, we have applied a similar idea in our family and that's why EVERY SINGLE PIECE of CollateralDamage Jr's wardrobe has The Ramone's logo on it. Gabba, Gabba & Hey, attorneys at law.
