Koch Brothers Flout Law Getting Richer With Secret Iran Sales - Bloomberg

Holy Shit! Lil Chuckie and Davey must have peed in the punch at one of Michael Bloomberg's parties! This is nasty. This is detailed. This is several grand jury indictments looking for a place to happen.

The Anti-Science Streak in Federal Marijuana Policy - Conor Friedersdorf - Health - The Atlantic

Why does this surprise anyone? Our drug laws are focused entirely on providing funding to turn the police into para-military organizations (which has succeeded beyond anyone's wildest wet-dreams!) not on any rational basis.

Cinco de Mayo

Can't believe I'm posting this.... :)

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of
the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be
the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York. This
would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to
But as we know....the great ship did not make it to New York....The ship hit
an iceberg and sank....and the cargo was forever lost .
The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly
awaiting its delivery were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so
great, they declared a National Day of Mourning which they still observe to
this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th.... and
is known of course as Sinko de Mayo.
