The Twitter chatter this morning: another fatal police shooting in St. Louis. The deficit has Ebola. Greg Dworkin has actual Ebola news and the not-actual solutions the news tends to drive. Joan McCarter joined us for a make-up appearance, and we segue into discussing the flu, a disease that actually kills people in America. Like in Idaho. Where, as elsewhere, there are Republicans in electoral trouble all over the map. Justice Kennedy stays ID (and NV) marriage equality cases. Why? And did you know that Idaho has slashed education funding so drastically that in many counties they can only afford a 4-day school week? Dinesh D'Souza's d'scent into trolling. GunFAIL follow-up: babysitter who got probation for a gun accident that killed her 5-year-old charge can't even be bothered.
