SORT BY Relevancy
Huge disadvantages of the fabulously wealthy include no one around with the guts and wit to say, "You're being stupid!" Another, more intractable one is the delusion if you are rich you must be brilliant...in everything.
Over the past decade or so, John Henry has pushed his The Boston Globe and Red Sox to the edge of ruin and seems to have no sense of that. He is the ugly side of capitalism, or one of the ugly sides. He jacked up ballpark/ticket prices to the highest in basebaqll. Likewise, he is huge in expeneive newspaper paywalls and has made both home delivery and online Globe prices the highest in the nation, higher even than papers like the Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. Those two at least give you info to earn you money back and more. The Globe simply relies on its almost monopoly status (there is an asthenic Murdoch-owned tabloid for a weak competitor.)
This past week, Henry blew it again. He's already pared the writing/reporting staff to the nub. Now he went after the delivery contractor, switching to a cheaper vendor. That makes perfect capitalistic sense; bottom line, don't you know. The problem is that the new contractor has already failed elsewhere and certainly plonked here.
Let us consider Henry's empire and whether the delusional rich can ever objectively judge their decisions. I suspect you already know my conclusion.
In the 1980's Lucasfilms decided. To spin off, our favorite fuzzballs. The Ewoks had two. ABC, Telemovies. And a Saturday Morning Cartoon. That the least we discuss the better. Hey it's better than the Jar Jar spin off series.

“California cops eat marijuana edibles, play darts, joke about kicking amputee’s ‘f---ing nub’ during Santa Ana pot shop raid” blared the headline in the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. UPI, CBS, NBC and FOX News issued stories of pot brownie eating verbally abusive and castigating cops caught on video. The story broke June 12 when Orange County Voice and attorney Matt Pappas released a video tape of the raid by a camera the police overlooked when they stormed into the Sky High Dispensary and dismantled what they thought were all the video cameras.
The show’s first guest is Marla James, a volunteer at the dispensary who is a legally blind amputee, who was there when the cops burst in with masks on, guns drawn and ordered members and employees to the ground. The brouhaha that has ensued with nationwide attention over the abusive pot eating cops has triggered an internal investigation. Hear the story behind the story as Marla recounts what happened that fateful day.
Citizen Lobbyists for medical marijuana is the name of the game in Sacramento on June 15 as Americans for Safe Access brings hundreds of medical marijuana patients and advocates from all over the state of California to lobby their state legislators for safe, reliable and local access to their medicine. With 13 bills touching almost every aspect of medical marijuana, patients want to let their lawmakers know how these bills will affect their lives.
Every year the Marijuana Anti-Prohibition Project rents a 15 passenger van to bring patients to ASAs Citizen Lobby Day. For this show the second guest are six of these patients in a free-spirited discussion on why they are in Sacramento, what it’s like to be there and what they hope to accomplish.

The Yawning Rabbit River Chronicle by J. L. Kimmel & David Ceccarelli
This magnificent, three-part tale opens in a once-idyllic forest where the creatures fear for their survival amid a drought so long-standing that none recall ever seeing a river and the dangers of hungry hunters. So desperate are they that a lightning-fast jackrabbit thief undertakes a quest to find the mythological river goddess, Violet, and race her for the river. As he departs, the forest librarian owl reads Violet s story aloud from a very special book. Part two occurs many years later on the estate of absurdly conspicuous consumers, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, the latter of whom hates rain and nature sounds. Their children are twins purchased at a bargain price the loud, aggressive Ash, deemed boyish by parents who discount the sensitive, thoughtful Dusty. A mishap with the past makes Ash evil and infects the Miller house with soul crawlers, parasites of hate that thrived where evil lurked. Twenty years later, in the adjoining township, part three brings thirteen-year-old Nub Begley, a farmer boy, and female classmate Nil Turner. This story will make life-long readers of youth not previously committed to reading.
Doting adults will do well to gift copies to beloved youth. Adults who take the time to explore these pages will be reminded of the important titles of their youth, the ones that originally hooked them on reading.
