Biden planning to hit food ‘shrinkflation,’ corporate greed in SOTU (www.politico.com)

President Joe Biden is weighing how hard to hammer big food companies over painfully high grocery prices in his upcoming State of the Union Address.

Denied access to democracy, the opposition is now morally authorized to blow up every trace of Cop City, and I wholeheartedly hope they do.

That time Mojo Nixon and Don Henley sang "Don Henley Must Die" together (web.archive.org)

“There I was, the king of bullshit, completely flabbergasted,” remembers Nixon. “I took my guitar off, put it back on, did that like three times, then got on the mic and said, ‘Don, do you want to debate? Do you want to fist fight?’ He was shit-faced and he goes, ‘I want to sing that song, especially the part about...
