The Daily Late Nightly Show (Jessica Williams’ Last Show)

Her final turn is a field report that will “focus on a group of former Bernie Sanders supporters who are now supporting Donald Trump. She promises it’s going to be “really funny,” and will provide a “nice farewell.”” Well, good. I thought it was kind of cold last night when Trevor didn’t mention her at …

A Kodak Moment

So it was 1945, in the summer, and Eastman Kodak started getting some strange complaints. You see, in addition to Kodachrome and mass market films used by amateur and professional photographers, they also did work in Medicine, inventing and producing X-Ray plates (not that it’s the only market, they’re also used in in manufacturing to …

The Worst Case Scenario!

As defined by Andrew Ross Sorkin. Note: this really has very little to do with Brexit at all. I suspect Bill Black who’s been writing about it a lot these last few days (I’m planning an extended summary soon) just put his fingers on automatic. The EU’s Failed Neo-Liberal Policies and BREXIT by William Black, …

New York Stories

I’ve been past the park Eric Garner was murdered in. It’s not much really, just a dinky little triangle between 3 streets across from a convenience store with a few trees, some benches, and grass that has seen too many feet. New York’s police secrecy law: de Blasio fights to keep NYPD abuse records from …
