Whether it’s reenacting a bustling diner, a tuberculosis ward or just some kind of performance art involving logging chain and Hummel figurines, there always seems to be a lot going on at KITM World Headquarters during school snow days! David Waldman speaks in ALL CAPS, hoping we can pay attention.

Which KITM character are you? Take our personality quiz! If you’re Greg Dworkin, you already know better than to fall for that one. Through Facebook, Cambridge Analytica got data on millions, and leverage to manipulate millions more. Greg takes us through the many webs Cambridge Analytica wove. The Obama data team reminds us that a community organizing tool is pretty much the opposite of stealing data for use in psychological warfare. The clientele is different too, as investigators are noting.

In Memoriam: Robert Grossman, a great artist that you definitely know, dies at 78. Peter G. Peterson, billionaire, 91, is survived by the National Debt. The Austin Bomber, a.k.a austinbomber, blew himself up at 23. His bombs terrorized millions, and yet he was not a terrorist. Ah, if only all mass shooters would be mass bombers think of how much safer we’d be.

Joan McCarter reminds us of the next spending bill deadline — this Friday at midnight. So many poor to punish and so little time! The Gop’s buggy tax law comes up with a grain glitch. The Senate Intelligence Committee finally acknowledges the security of the 2018 election is in jeopardy

Russia helps Venezuela create cryptocurrency to evade U.S. sanctions. They probably are kicking themselves for not thinking of that before they bought all those Trumps.
