looks like Obama cut loose the dealers

USAToday has a feature detailing the 102 convicted folks whose convictions Obama commuted, 
people mostly dealing in cocaine and methamphetamine products.

the uncouch potato

Back in 2012 we posted about a healthy eating initiative I imagined for our neighborhood in the Bronx.

Now filmmaker and ClockTowerTenant Zef Cota... 

...writes to announce a KickStarter to help Laura, his "MarketingHead" sister for author Alessandra Calamai, pictured below:

Calamai has written and illustrated seven (!) books about healthier eating and hopes to raise the printing costs for two of them.

If you help her out she'll give you books and other cool stuff.

So put the chips down!

And pledge to fund CeleryCharles!

bye summer

I can hear music

The sound of the city, baby, seems to disappear.

can you hear me now?

So we find ourselves with 1) an embarrassing blowhard with no political experience, 2) a lifetime politician so marginally criminal she’d be in jail had her husband not been president, and,

3) a 3rd party candidate who can’t name a foreign leader.

How the hell did we get here? 

Anyone who earns more than $389,000 a year is in the top 1%.

But get this: 
almost half the entire country pays no federal income tax AT ALL. 

In fact the top 40% pays out 86.5% of all federal taxes, trying to make up for the half that is not paying.

And still the middle class is so fed up many are supporting a deeply flawed candidate who promises broad reform. 

(with no clue how to actually effect it.)

Our Democracy is no longer functioning.

But with nearly half the voters supporting an ignorant, bigoted poseur as salvation from business as usual, we’d better start listening.
