The Breakfast Club (One More Day)

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

President Harry Truman wins re-election in an upset; South Vietnam’s Ngo Dinh Diem killed after coup; Howard Hughes flies his ‘Spruce Goose’; Game show scandal rocks early TV; Singer k.d. lang born.
