I find your lack of Neil Innes disturbing

quote [ Musician and songwriter enjoyed success with the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah band, the Rutles and Monty Python ]

Even as a satirist his musical career was genius. A lot of Rutles is actually better than the Beatles. He will be missed.

John Oliver, a giant squirrel and a defamation lawsuit by a coal industry titan

quote [ Oliver knew he was inviting a legal battle when he used his show Sunday to lambaste one of the country’s largest coal mining companies and mock its chief executive. ]

The Slants Win Supreme Court Battle Over Band's Name In Trademark Dispute

quote [ The case could have broad impact on how the First Amendment is applied in other trademark cases. ]

Under the circumstances it seems like the best decision. On the other hand, looks like it means 'Redskins' is probably OK too.

FACT CHECK: Is Left-Wing Violence Rising?

quote [ those who track extremism say that while there are a few far-left groups that raise red flags, their numbers remain small. ]

So says the 'fake news media' anyway. Needless to say, fact checks are moot when people's minds are irrevocably made up.

Minnesota Police Officer Found Not Guilty In Shooting Death Of Philando Castile

quote [ The incident drew national attention when Reynolds started live-streaming the immediate aftermath of the exchange on Facebook, as Castile lay dying and her daughter sat in the back seat. ]
