The Breakfast Club (Better Days)

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 10:00am (ET) (or whenever we get around to it) 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.

This Day in History

The Alamo falls; The Dred Scott decision brings America closer to Civil War; Renaissance artist Michelangelo born; Walter Cronkite leaves ‘The CBS Evening News’; Ed McMahon and Rob Reiner born.
