And in the end the blog you make is equal to the blog you take. I have no idea what that means.

Lots of politics going on this week:

  • the attempt (or play at an attempt) to defund Obamacare
  • the Republican House of Reps slashing the Food Stamp program, thus punishing children and the working poor for the House of Reps blocking attempts to enough jobs to take people off of food stamps
  • Pope Francis continuing his pursuit of a commonsense spiritual path for Catholicism
  • Anaheim sinking deeper into the much
All of those should be their own stories, though — and you, dear Reader, are invited to write them.  (I’m sort of swamped — though unable to resist temptation, so I’ll write one or two.  Or four.)  I think that we need something to chill out with this weekend as we head into autumn – it will happen, right? – and so here’s something to settle your soul for a time: the isolated vocal tracks (occasionally with some instruments) from the famous B-side of the Beatles’ Abbey Road.  Boy, those guys were pretty good!

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about this or anything else you’d like within broad bounds of decency and decorum.  I’m thinking that we’re still a week or so away from the next Dearthwatch — unless someone wants to step forward and give Alexa.com a whirl!

UPDATE: More a capella! Featuring the best use of “baryons” in a parodic lyric than I’ve ever seen.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
