  • Hey yeah, aren’t we going to need to ask some of these “terrorists” questions sometimes?

  • “A Visual History of Presidents Awkwardly Meeting the Losers They Defeated”
  • The Supreme Court case that may outlaw used bookstores; Or: maybe Stephan Kinsella’s obsession with IP is for good reason.
  • Matt Welch is on Red Eye tonight at 3 a.m., so y’all should probably watch if you have insomnia.  Welch is better than John Bolton, that is the important thing. I think you should watch, I guess because I can’t because it’s a little depressing to watch Reason people on TV still? Also, Red Eye, I love/hate you so, but will I ever be on you? Probably not.
  • John Cusack doesn’t approve of Michael Moynihan’s grasp of history and Oliver Stone’s lack thereof and the actor has taken to twitter to poorly express his outrage. The old cliche that if you don’t agree with me, you were paid off is tiresome. My dad got that a lot when I was growing up, yet we still didn’t have a pool in spite of all that dirty money from oil companies (this is a lie, FYI). Still, nice that the quality of celebrity that Moynihan is annoying is only increasing. I am a little jealous.
  • This is just how I get my news every morning!
  • New York Times op-ed doc on Chris Williams of Montana Cannabis  who is facing 80 years in prison. Another Montana Cannabis co-owner, Richard Flor, died in prison in August, a few months into his five-year term.
  • “Police were forced to shoot a dog” during a narcotics SWAT search warrant on a house which contained an infant. Comforting! 
  • Michael Moynihan says everyone’s a big fat liar, not just Republicans.
  • Sometimes I wonder if Cosmo isn’t better than Esquire, just because Cosmodoesn’t think women have ever heard of politics and therefore nobody ever writes shit like this for Cosmo.
  • Winner and finalists for the W. Eugene Smith Grant for Humanistic Photography are worth a look. 
  • Football is boring, but a little bad-ass girl playing it with boys is worth a look.
  • Britain is awfully bureaucratic about contacting aliens.
