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

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
