Almost a chain

I have two links for you today. First, from the NY Times is this scathing editorial from Bob Herbert who completely lays into Republicans whose economic policies have led to our current situation with that camel fucker in Iraq. Wait, I mean, in our financial sector. He likens them to someone standing next to a fire hose watching their house burn.

Then there's this interesting piece in the Daily Kansan that uses the sad closing of the current incarnation of the Gaslight Tavern to look back on the unique history of the original, located where the Kansas Union parking garage is today. Much like the current Gaslight it was a gathering place for the local radicals and hippies and was a focal point of the violence that occurred in the late 60's and early 70's. The article touches on the race riots, sniper attacks, and fire bombings that occurred during that amazing time period in Lawrence.
