A lesser GnR work, but a solid one.

I'm looking forward to this.

I live under a rock. I gargled the title and producers' names. Looks like it could be interesting. I'm all ears if anyone has comments on 1) why should I watch this program? and 2) Is there a way to watch online without subscribing to something?

I'm going into this blind as I haven't watched any trailers, but I'm looking forward to it at any rate.

This is the stream most folks use if they can't get MSNBC any other way:

I agree with @JohnWDean that AG Garland should appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Trump's Attempted Coup and the Trump Insurrection - but a Special Counsel far more effective and less snail-paced than Robert Mueller and very much more disciplined and focused than Ken Starr.

You know, on second thought, I should have submitted it with Pitt and Gates in the HL. It might have piqued more interest.

In just nine months, we have nominated more Black women to the federal circuit courts and more public defenders to the bench than any administration in all of American history.
And we're just getting started.

I asked Madison Cawthorn why he won't stop attacking our democracy.

He was upset. Here's his response.

I'm a bit freaked out already

*sigh*

The thing the teacher didn't address is the fact that it's taught in breadth, not depth - just enough so kids can pass the state standardized test and just enough so that they don't have to discuss those sticky wickets of treating human beings like property.

And then there's these old farkers...

I taught at a majority black high school in South Fort Worth back in the late 00s. We were told to skip the Civil War and slavery because they didn't want to upset the students & parents and we replaced it with test prep for the standardized tests.

I blew off the documentary to watch the football game, kind of assuming they'd repeat it at my local 10 pm, but nope, nada.

Ah well.

I started to make an obvious joke about Jerry wanting to watch, but the subject doesn't deserve jokes.
