The cat has been out of the bag before, and yet, people lose interest and put it back in. People always move on. Sheriff in New Mexico reports a UFO encounter. The crew of the SS Ourang Medan dies mysteriously.
I love seeing the kids do modern, regular kid stuff like this. Plus, it’s really funny to see this scene in She’s the Mayor after you’ve seen them go through all the trouble to build an old-timey pioneer town.
Photos from Bernie Sanders rally at Chicago State University, a predominantly black university threatened with shutdown on account of Illinois’s state budget impasse. Sanders’ calls for affordable education for all certainly resonates with students fighting for their school’s survival. An estimated 6,000 were in attendance. Speakers included students of CSU, mayoral candidate Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, and Jonathan Jackson, the activist/organizer son of Jesse Jackson. The latter especially spoke passionately and convincingly about why Bernie Sanders is the right candidate for black Americans. Bernie took the stage a little after 8 and delivered his reliable message, railing against income inequality, corrupt campaign financing, police brutality, and pointing towards collective political solutions. Thunderous cheers, chants, and “I Love You, Bernie”s ensued.
