Boebert was re-elected to a second term last year by the slimmest of margins — beating her Democratic opponent in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District by just over 500 votes.

André 3000 has surpassed Tool for the longest Hot 100 hit of all time. As Billboard reports, his track “I Swear, I Really Wanted To Make A ‘Rap’ Album But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time” charted at #90 on the Hot 100 this week — it’s the first song on his new instrumental album New Blue Sun. It clocks in at 12 minutes and 20 seconds, longer than Tool’s “Fear Inoculum,” which is 10 minutes and 21 seconds and debuted at #93 back in 2019. André 3000’s track notched 5.8 million streams over the past week.

Police said that the father-son duo would often get drunk and fight with each other. The mother left the home last week when Deepak beat her up.

I know this will piss people off but alcohol has to be one of the worst drugs. People, and I've been there, make horrible decisions when they're drunk. Obviously not everyone but man, "hold my beer" is a meme for a reason.

Yeah it is. I've actually heard people make this argument too. How stupid do you have to be to believe that?

I found this telling (emphasis mine):

Mayor’s courts operate in a gray area of Louisiana law. Like municipal courts, they handle violations of local ordinances. Municipal judges must hold a law degree and pass the bar; a mayor can preside over court without meeting any qualifications. Yet, like a municipal judge, a mayor can impose fines or sentence people to jail.

Mayor’s courts must ensure defendants have fair trials. But unlike other courts in the state, they aren’t subject to rules like the Code of Criminal Procedure that are supposed to ensure courts are run fairly and properly.

WTF?

I'm not going to lie when I first read the headline I thought this was probably a frivolous lawsuit but after reading the article I thought that stuff should get pulled.

Still in the house just not the speaker. Apparently it's a tradition that former speakers are allowed to have larger offices out of respect. But a lot of Republicans just love to hate Nancy Pelosi.

What frustrates me is schools are frequently very willing to spend money on sports related expenses. A librarian left a a New Hampshire school $4 million dollars. They spent $100,000 on the library and $1 million on a new scoreboard (source) In the vast majority of states the highest paid employee is a football coach (source). Local governments don't really care about education and because local governments are typically elected to me that means American citizens don't really care about education either.

I think you hit the nail on the head with that one. We're facing another Republican engineered government shutdown but what's the #1 priority? Fashion.
