ARETHA FRANKLIN— LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

You want to know why Aretha is the indisputable Queen of Soul? Watch this. You want to know why hacks like me send her fan mail by the week pleading for an interview, knowing there is sod-all hope, but not resenting her one smidge? Watch this.

THE REAL PROBLEM WITH AMERICANS AND THEIR DISRESPECT WITH OBAMA—ACCORDING TO A CANADIAN

(by William Thomas)

There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied ’round their president. Once elected, the man who won the White House was no longer viewed as a Republican or Democrat, but the president of the United States. The oath of office was taken, the wagons were circled around the country’s borders, and it was America versus the rest of the world, with the president of all the people at the helm.

NOTORIOUS R.B.G. RAP VIDEO

(courtesy of  |  By James Michael Nichols, July 4, 2015)

It’s really no secret that Ruth Bader Ginsberg is kind of a badass. Now, her legacy as a Supreme Court Justice is immortalized in an unexpected way — a rap parody of the Sugarhill Gang’s iconic “Rapper’s Delight.”

The video comes from Allison Lane, an actress, writer and filmmaker known for her work with “Criminal Minds” (CBS), “Going Down In LA-LA Land” and the upcoming “Kiss Me, Kill Me.” The hilarious “Judges Delight” tribute to RBG is a feature on Lane’s popular YouTube channel called “See You Next Tuesday.”

HILLARY ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE

(courtesy of New Hampshire Union Leader, September 01. 2015, 8:13PM)

On my first trip to New Hampshire this spring, a retired doctor spoke up. I had just announced I was running for President, and I had traveled to Iowa and New Hampshire to hear from voters about their concerns, their hopes and their vision for the future. He said his biggest worry was the rising tide of heroin addiction in the state, following a wave of prescription drug abuse.

HILLARY ON DRUG COSTS

(courtesy Jeffrey Young, HuffingtonPost.com)    September 22, 2015

WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will outline a set of policies Tuesday she says will help make prescription drugs more affordable as escalating prices cause rising anxiety among American consumers.

Clinton’s plan, a summary of which her campaign provided to reporters Monday evening, mostly represents steps long advocated by Democrats, including giving Medicare the authority to negotiate bulk discounts from pharmaceutical companies. Drug prices and overall national spending on prescriptions have risen in recent years, and a poll last month showed more than 70 percent of Americans think these medicines are too costly.
