This is nothing the vast majority of us don't already know, but it can't be repeated enough as far as I'm concerned.

Lemon and Cuomo have had that argument on air several times. Cuomo prefers to let the idiots on so he can challenge their idiocy, while Lemon doesn’t want to give them air time at all

Don Lemon also thinks you should devote prime time air to talking about black holes swallowing planes.

His options range from a liberal news website to a digital magazine focused on culture, society and lifestyle, they said, adding that no final decision had been taken as the new venture was at an early stage.

*PAGING IMB*

Really good (but heartbreaking) story from OK about rural hospitals being forced to close:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/nat ... bf87e40d02

The hospital had already transferred out most of its patients and lost half its staff when the CEO called a meeting to take inventory of what was left. Employees crammed into Tina Steele’s office at Fairfax Community Hospital, where the air conditioning was no longer working and the computer software had just been shut off for nonpayment.

“I want to start with good news,” Steele said, and she told them a food bank would make deliveries to the hospital and Dollar General would donate office supplies.

“So how desperate are we?” one employee asked. “How much money do we have in the bank?”

“Somewhere around $12,000,” Steele said.

“And how long will that last us?”

“Under normal circumstances?” Steele asked. She looked down at a chart on her desk and ran calculations in her head. “Probably a few hours,” she said. “Maybe a day at most.”
