Morning chatter included the NYT's use of the by now-infamous "no angel" framing on the day of Michael Brown's funeral, and Maureen Dowd's absolutely terrible Sunday lede. Greg Dworkin rounds up the latest back-to-war chatter, and peeks under the hood of the New American Foundation, what they're up to, and who funds them, plus the latest reason somebody's gotta be bombed. In other news: Obamacare's popular, but the name isn't; the Notorious RBG speaks. Surprise! Reporters digging into the records of the Ferguson-area cops who mistreated them find some serious dirt! Revisiting the pundit fumbling of the Perry indictment, and Jon Perr's documentation of the history of the "criminalization of politics" tripe. Lastly, not only are corporations people, they're militarized cops!
