At least there are still the Mekons, now reporting from the desert at Joshua Tree. My favourite band in one of my favourite places.

It’s rare for a newspaper to have a view on the details of scientific methodology! (But I don’t entirely agree with that view…)
As a distraction from the terrible news, isn’t it funny that the NY Times style guide requires referring to Members of Parliament as “M.P.s”, as opposed to “MPs”, universal in the UK (sorry, “U.K.”)?

To the Tories, the problem with the EU is that it represents a “statist juggernaut”; in the rest of Europe, the problem with the EU is that it represents a “capitalist juggernaut”… “Brexit marks the end of Britain’s role as a global superpower”— Fareed Zakaria (CNN).
“If this vote is not passed tonight, if this deal is not passed,” Mrs. May said, “then Brexit could be lost.”
Hope springs eternal.
