Via Tengrain, I learned that Nancy Reagan died. Amid the media love fest, I'll choose to mourn the Latin Americans killed by right-wing militias and narcoterrorists, the nuns brutalized and murdered by Reagan administration proxies, the AIDS victims whose plight was ignored by an administration that wanted 'those people' dead, the Iranians and Iraqis killed in a proxy war with American weapons... need I go on?
Regarding Nancy Reagan herself, all I really have to say is that this is the woman who, twelve years after the United States government landed human beings on the moon and brought them home safely, brought astrologers into the White House.
There's a soundtrack for that:
Released in 1981, too... it's like they knew.
ADDENDUM: Maybe Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper can deliver the eulogy at Nancy's funeral:
Mojo's still around, at least he was four years ago, and he doesn't seem to have mellowed one bit.
