Believe

The original Lady Gaga – Cher:

Did it really happen? “Only” 10,000 protesters showed up in Madison yesterday.

The unemployed

Need not apply! Which, of course, is another argument for why we need a New Deal-style public works program.

One of the people quoted in this story offered me a job once. I turned him down; he seemed like kind of a dick. After reading his quote, I’m convinced I was right.

My baby thinks he’s a train

Rosanne Cash with one of my favorite songs:

Love hurts

Gram and Emmy Lou:

Spring is sprung

The grass is riz
I wonder where
The birdies is
Some say the bird is on the wing
But that’s absurd
The wing is on the bird!

4th Amendment

Gone!

Feel the freedom

Dear sweet Jesus, these people don’t even see the irony:

Evangelical college Liberty University is the largest recipient of federal aid to a student body in Virginia, and the eighth largest recipient in the country overall, reports Lynchburg, Va.’s News & Advance.

Eighty-eight percent of the $445 million in federal aid that Liberty received in the 2009-2010 school year was comprised of student loans; the remaining 12 percent came in the form of Pell grants and other federal education subsidies.

Liberty is the largest private university in Virginia and calls itself “the largest and fastest growing Christian Evangelical university in the world.” The university was founded on the fundamentalist principles of the late Jerry Falwell and requires students in all its programs to take a course in “creationist studies.”

The $445 million figure is a 56 percent increase from the amount of money Liberty received in the previous school year. One of the major factors in the upsurge in federal funds obtained by the university has been a big bump in online enrollment.
