Hello COS – everyone seems to be up late tonight – wtg on 1st
The parents of Jordan Davis will join @Lawrence in an exclusive interview Wednesday at 10pm ET on @msnbc.— The Last Word (@TheLastWord) February 19, 2014
Morally first, COS cheated – thank you LL!!!!
You’re welcome Mrs. Nani!
Did I cheat Chips? :) :) :)
Well …… technically, no, but morally: absolutely!
*cough* *cough* …….*cough*
There’s that word again – ‘morally’
So after a few discussions with meta, I’m leaning towards self-publishing my novel. I’ll have to think a bit more. Designing the cover, designing the book, etc etc. But the publishing industry is dead, it just doesn’t realize it.
If you have a chance, try to talk with published authors and get their perspective. It’s a challenge to self-publish because it’s all up to you to do the work but it’s also a lot of freedom. Traditional publishing is going through tremendous change.
I wish you the best and don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. I have lots of resources for each phase of the process. But the most important thing for now is to focus on your writing process and give it your all!
The writing is done. Now it’s revisions, which I’m about half through.
I will definitely bend your ear. Thanks.
Well, douchebag of the day: an “American” artist smashes a vase painted by Ai Wei Wei.
Flashmobs – so much fun! Thank you, LL!
Wow, running right past me. . . Love flash mobs.

A pleasure COS, even though you morally cheated.
You are morally corrupt in the world of contesting – I shall expect you to work out how to put Meta into Number 1 in the cake contest – should be a breeze.
You were a friend once, 99ts. But it’s almost a fair-ish observation. Working on a plan to obliterate the pesky top two, it may involve espionage. Leave it with me.
Given I am trying to do the same – I feel we may be partners in corrupt. Stay with it.
I confess!!!! :)
LL – Such depressing news all over the place, if we let it sink into our subconscious, that I’m beginning to think we all need to just go find a flash mob every day and chill for a half hour or something with those people. So, thanks!
Now, to plow through everlasting snow to join some other singers at some, hopefully, warmer location. I.Got.This. Or maybe tomorrow, I’ll just listen to those you posted here! So, thanks, again!
Whenever I feel the world is too much with me, I turn either to poetry or to flash mobs.
I know what you mean, and I’ll add flash mobs to my line-up! (Just wrote a poem for my son – today’s his 45th birthday. OMG he’s old – Ha!)
During California’s worst drought on record, some farmers are using precious water to grow hay that is then shipped to China.
While historic winter storms have battered much of the US, California is suffering its worst drought on record. So why is America’s most valuable farming state using billions of gallons of water to grow hay – specifically alfalfa – which is then shipped to China?
The reservoirs of California are just a fraction of capacity amid the worst drought in the state’s history.

Thanks Lib_l, I love flash mobs, the music as well as the public reaction, particularly that of young children. It’s probably the only time I listen to the entire musical selections in posts. Good job tonight!
Ok friends, off to bed. See everyone on the flip.
Snoozy head. Thanks LL, sleep well.
so are GA republicans feeling very proud of their vote ???
how can hatred of one black gentleman, who was elected POTUS, make you destroy vital services of people who you claim to represent???
what aren’t these people up in arms against their governor & legislature?

WHY would the billionaire Koch pull out of Alaska so soon – something is fishy (but what?)
Kochsters Pull $100,000 Of Attack Ads In Alaska dld.bz/dhM7u— #BoycottKoch (@GoodbyeKoch) February 19, 2014
From the link “Could it be related to the Kochs announcing recently that they’ll be shutting down their Alaska Refinery?”
If no financial stake in Alaska – they’ll spend their money elsewhere
I expected the Koch bro to all be focused on the US senate races
My poor tired eyes, Lib-L! You are mean to me! I’ve been watching some of the other flash mobs indicated at the end of the last video. I don’t think my eyes will recover tonight, but on the other hand I feel quite relaxed. So, thanks! :grin:
G’Night whoever is still here! I really think from 8:00am this morning to now is a reasonable amount of time to be hanging around the village. ;)
Sweet dreams to you all!

Did anyone see the rewrite on the Last word …last night…it is worth a see….O’Donnell bashes Priorities for sitting out 2014….
Here ya go PF, this should be required viewing. The obsession with Hillary Clinton and 2016 is just astonishing when so much hinges on the results of the 2014 midterms. It is hard to believe this is happening after the disaster of the 2010 midterms.

2014 already a fundraising battle
Republicans, with the help of the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity, are getting a big cash advantage over Democrats in the 2014 midterm races.

Moooooorning Early Birds!
The juror interview – final vote to convict Dunn was 9-3. 25% thought it was self defense – and of course race was an issue – only a white person could possibly say “race was not a factor”
“Valerie decided to come forward after reading and hearing the outrage the verdict generated. She wants the world to know that the jurors valued the life of Davis. Race was never mentioned in deliberations and was not a factor in the decision, she said”
