Booker T. Jones on the Hammond B-3 organ. Perhaps you’ve heard his number Green Onions.

Miracle of miracles, for the first time in I-don’t-know-how-long, I’ve got a full day with no meetings, conference calls, brainstorming sessions, chats, nuthin’! This means I can get some actual work done, and I’ve been chugging away at it since 7:30 this morning, something that’s relatively easy to do when you have a five-second commute:

A home office means that you can also crank the tunes, and I’ve found the Groovy Jazz Organ compilation to be productivity-boosting. Some kind soul has posted them on YouTube, and I’ve posted them here for your enjoyment, whether you’ve got your nose to the grindstone or in a martini glass.

Floyd may have won the match, but when it comes to who won the real battle, it’s Pacquiao all the way:

gay family values

Editorial cartoon by Andy Marlette. Click to see the source.

Andy Marlette drew the editorial cartoon above in response to a proposed bill that would let privately-owned adoption agencies dodge being considered as discriminating against clients if doing so would “violate [the agencies’] written religious or moral convictions or policies,” the bill reads. Alas, the bill passed yesterday.

The worst part about the bill passing wasn’t that it passed, but this moment when Republican Committee Chair and unmitigated asshole Charles McBurney laughingly cut off 10-year-old Nathaniel Gill’s testimony at a House Judiciary Committee meeting on the issue. Nathaniel is the son of the gay man who successfully toppled Florida’s adoption ban in the courts, and the bill is seen as “revenge” for that. As committee chair, McBurney could’ve given the nervous boy a little more time to complete his testimony, but in true neo-Pharisee fashion, cut him off and snickered as he did so:

It’s as if they’re trying to prove this maxim true:

Conservatism is the dread fear that somewhere, somehow, someone you think is your inferior is being treated as your equal.
