Morning Open Thread


A classic piece of poignant comedy from the late George Carlin. Finding humor within the insanity of knowing we're defending the same rights we won decades ago, helps to keep us going. And we will carry on the fight to win these battles as many damn times as it takes.

Also this morning, deepest condolences to Paul Krugman on the loss of his father, David Krugman.
