The Breakfast Club (Darkness & Light)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:30am (ET) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.

Breakfast Tunes

This song was composed in memory of the Haitian slave Toussaint Loverture, who took command of the rebels who wanted to free Haiti by the French colonists, and became president of the island. Napoleon sent against him, general Leclerc, which made him prisoner and deported him to France, where he died before independence of Haiti.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
