How the Koch Brothers Are Killing Public Transit Projects Around the Country

Hiroko Tabuchi in the paper of record: In places like Nashville, Koch-financed activists are finding tremendous success.

Fuck Facebook: I’m dumping ’em

It’s official: I’m dumping Facebook (a.k.a. Facefuck). What started out as a fun place to connect with actual friends online, has become a swirling storm of shit, wrapped in Mark Zuckerberg’s lies (he has, after all, been “apologizing” for online privacy problems since before there even was a Facebook…). And let’s not forget that Mark […]
