I'll be offline today, here's an open thread, all topics welcome.

Scott's relatives said he didn't have a gun, but "all the credible evidence" led to the conclusion that Scott was armed, Murray said. He said Scott's DNA was on the grip of a gun found at the scene.
In other news, the Walter Scott shooting case (no relation to Keith I believe) is in the hands of a South Carolina jury today. This was the one where video showed W. Scott being shot in the back after a possible struggle with a taser.
All of these police related shooting cases are different but one thing they have in common is a rush to judgement.
It was not clear from that video exactly what happened.
Usually when people use that phrase it's in the context of someone who was unfairly convicted or otherwise treated poorly by the justice system.
From what you know of the case, including the recent testimony, what do you think should've happened? Do you think they made a mistake indicting/trying him?
This was similar to the sudden, similarly unexplained (other than "tabulation error," well, doh) change in a couple of counties in Wisconsin last week, after embarrassing reveal of ridiculously bad math for more voters for president than overall -- which changed its margin for Trump to 0.7 percent.
And Michigan has made some minimal changes but remains at a margin for Trump of only 0.2 percent.
Interesting that such slim margins is exactly what the cybersecurity experts (who testified in Wisconsin) said to expect from outside interference . . . just enough but not too much. And the feds now report internet interference in at least 10 states.
That'll take the edge off...Thanks Warren!
I'll have to check it out as a counterpoint to Levon's memoir, as it regards to the bad blood between them.
It reached a point during the concert's planning stages that Robertson reportedly blew up at Helm and responded, "Don't tell me who I'm supposed to not associate with. I will associate and produce who I want to. You can go fck yourself and get the hell out of my way if you don't like who I'm associating with musically."
That said, whenever I'm asked what my favorite Martin Scorsese film is, I'm sorely tempted to name "The Last Waltz." Filmed in 35mm at San Francisco's famed Winterland Ballroom, it stands as arguably the greatest rock concert documentary ever made, part memoir and complete masterpiece. And everyone who performed onstage / onscreen with The Band -- including Neil Diamond -- knocked it out of the park.
For anyone seeking to buy the soundtrack to "The Last Waltz," I highly recommend the 2002 4-CD box set, which includes 16 additional songs from the concert than were not included in the film.
He should count his blessings; one of which is that unsung hero Garth Hudson hasn't come out with a book yet.
I really enjoyed Diamond's segment of The Last Waltz, though it did take me by surprise. Nice to know the background there. Wish he had stuck with that caliber of material.
Goes without saying, Levon wasn't having that mess...Muddy made the cut;)
He also told of Ronnie Hawkins having a big laugh busting Levon, Richard, Rick, & Garth's balls at the film premier over Robbie got so much more camera time than the rest of The Band...particularly close-ups of Robbie singing, when The Band rarely if ever plugged Robbie's vocal mic in, because he couldn't really sing for sh*t.
It's kinda funny Robbie is saying they packed it in in part because everybody was to into the smack except him and Garth...while the way Levon tells it, it was Robbie going all Hollywood and getting heavy into the blow holed up at Scorcese's house for days at a time with the blinds drawn.
I authored things before Donald Trump and I thought way back then they were great. Nothing is changing for me unless someone breaks my door down for authoring my own pages.
He went to lügenpresse again....sigh
Phuck...it's disgusting, but only to half of us. What the hell is going on here?
I didn't like W Bush much. But he just made me feel like trying to get arrested in front of his house for saying noble cause bullshit. This is something completely different. This is shared illness. Maybe not being able to protest the Iraq War after our soldiers were fighting and dying before Cindy Sheehan broke that wall down was a sort of shared silent illness too. This is awful
Feck I hate the internet
