Another brief encounter with technical difficulties today, as we move to a new (and permanent) server. But the show went on, though we missed out on having Greg Dworkin's round-up today. As we went on the air, news was breaking of the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, which will no doubt be redefined as a "gun free zone" by the end of the day. More college campus #GunFAIL. Guess what? Fox News claims of 950+ "dead voters" in South Carolina turn out to be... zero. States that got the most natural disaster aid sent Congress the most climate science deniers. Update on the Lodi, CA SWAT team #GunFAIL incident at the "Little Buckaroos Reading Roundup." Open AR-15 carriers detained on their way to the Appleton, WI Farmers' Market. "Taxpayers Cover Up to 80 Percent of Hospital Gun Violence Costs." "Rise of 401(k)s Hurt More Americans than It Helped." C|Net: "NSA disguised itself as Google to spy, say reports." A weekend kerfuffle wherein we find out Jake Tapper hates me. Oh wells!
