By Popular Demand...

Friday night 80's British Synth-Pop.

These are some favorite tunes from my mis-spent youth - that Fay kinda likes too!

New Order - Round and Round (for some inexplicable reason, one of my favorite videos)

Depeche Mode - Just Can't Get Enough (not dark and moody like their later stuff)

New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle (even the "too cool" kids dance to this)

Modern English - I Melt With You (suitable for frat parties and wedding receptions alike)

Sorry for the ads, but the official videos are just superior quality. Hope you enjoy!

Can someone please explain to me why England is begging to hang on to Scotland?  Isn't Scotland the Detroit of the British Empire? Any illumination you all can give me would be greatly appreciated. I'm lost.

CNN has been petting the union monster for many decades. It took years for this to work its way through the courts, but now CNN will be forced to pay the piper.

The Labor Board found “overwhelming” evidence of anti-union animus in CNN’s  failure to bargain with the union about the decision to terminate the subcontracts. The org also found CNN had implemented a hiring plan designed to limit the number of discharged TVS employees to avoid a successorship bargaining obligation.
Too funny. Read about it here.

More Tuesday humououour:

The Wreck Of The Obstreperous*

A perfect read of where we are today, in a column from Michael Goodwin of the New York Post.
He has described the present so well that it chills me to think he could be equally correct about the next two years.

Obamas Ship Is Sinking

* I've always wanted to use that word in a Threadline, even if it is a slight misuse, as above.

Meet The Next Senator From Arkansas

I had the honor of meeting and speaking with Tom Cotton this afternoon. He's a very nice young man, energetic, and knowledgeable about the issues facing our country. Noah and I both liked him very much. Here are his positions on key issues.  The polls have Cotton and incumbent democrat Mark Pryor neck and neck; it will be a slugfest until November.
