Late Night: Lunatic Fringe

By: Sunday August 17, 2014 8:00 pm

Remember these guys? They were right. Unfortunately, they didn’t realize that the lunatic fringe was backed to the hilt by Big Business.

Come Saturday Morning: This and That

By: Saturday August 16, 2014 6:45 am

Here are some of the things you might have missed that went down last week:

Late Night: Pressure Drop

By: Sunday August 10, 2014 8:00 pm

Because Toots and the Maytals never go out of style.

Come Saturday Morning: The GOP’s War on the Waitstaff Redux – Extra Special Rick Berman Edition

By: Saturday August 9, 2014 6:59 am

Ho-hum. Another big story broken by Bluestem that gets hijacked by certain local media lackeys without credit. We’ve seen this movie before.

This instance involves a new wrinkle in the Republican Party of Minnesota’s continuing War on the Waitstaff: namely, the River Oasis Café in Stillwater and its adding a “minimum wage fee” in protest of Governor Dayton’s successful push for raising the state minimum wage.

Late Night: The Good News

By: Sunday August 3, 2014 8:00 pm

Consider this a public service to combat the wiles of the professional psychic vampires out there who aren’t happy unless they’re driven people to top themselves, preferably in the vamps’ presence.

Come Saturday Morning: More Songs about Buildings and Food

By: Saturday August 2, 2014 6:45 am

For you vicarious food fans out there: Try the blog of Not Quite Nigella, a lass from Down Under.

Late Night: Piketty’s Failure of Nerve, or Why Marx Is Still the Boogeyman

By: Sunday July 27, 2014 8:00 pm

The decades of heavy-duty demonizing dumped on Marx by capitalism’s cheerleaders, particularly in the United States, have scared people away from studying his work to the point where even a French economist is quick to deny being contaminated by the thoughts of the Great Satanic Boogeyman.

Say Anything: Words Matt Entenza Lives By, Apparently

By: Sunday July 27, 2014 5:00 pm

Poor Matt Entenza. He thought he could run yet another sleazy and expensive backstabbing of a campaign against a fellow DFLer, only to be tripped up by the fact that many politically-minded Minnesota Democrats have a) long and accurate memories, and b) an ability to find the proofs that confirm the accuracy of those memories.

Come Saturday Morning: Fleet Farm’s Family Affair in MN-08

By: Saturday July 26, 2014 6:45 am

The whole reason for the Minnesota CD8 GOP’s existence seems to be the facilitation of the tax-and-taker-hatin’ Mills Family’s desire to buy their heir and scion, Stewart Mills III, a Congressional seat.

Late Night: Solar Roadways – Are You Smarter Than a NASA Engineer?

By: Sunday July 20, 2014 8:00 pm

It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that when the rocket scientists, engineering experts, and solar-energy experts at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration get behind something having to with engineering and solar energy, it’s very likely the real deal.
