The Breakfast Club (Saturday Morning)

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 Korean War begins; Custer meets his end at the Battle of Little Bighorn; John Dean testifies before the Senate Watergate Committee; Author George Orwell born; Deep-sea explorer Jacques Cousteau dies.
