I selected Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage," for the music on today's booblehead thread because Dr. Ben "welfare for me only" Carson is on Face The Nation. This hasn't been scientifically proven yet, but some people say Americans lose more brain cells after being exposed to Dr. Carson's political views than when they huff a whole tube of glue.

Since it's Memorial Day weekend, let's give a shout to all our troops, past and present that have served this country admirably. With all the VA stories hitting the presses this week, I was reminded about the shame of Walter Reed neglect scandal. Don't tell us how much you support the troops, show us.

There's no Meet The Press today because fast cars rule the roost, but let's see who else is on the Tele:

“Meet the Press” on NBC • Preempted by Formula One auto racing
