Can’t We All Just Overbook? BY TED RALL

Phone video captured a United Airlines passenger being dragged off an airplane for refusing to be bumped after he had boarded. The airline said the flight was overbooked (lie) but it highlighted the practice of selling the same seat twice. Why can't the rest of us do the same thing?

DEMOCRATS: BORN TO LOSE — BY TED RALL

Democrats aren't used to fighting so they're understandably nervous about taking on Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with a filibuster. The good news for them is, it won't work.Democrats aren’t used to fighting so they’re understandably nervous about taking on Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch with a filibuster.

Cole's Andy Warhol Screentest

Cole 3

No telling what you can get up to at the Warhol museum in Pittsburg. A Warhol screen test perhaps. Thinking of Lou Reed here. Of course, Lou wore shades and drank a Coke.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM - IMAX Fan Event Featurette

I've never been a Harry Potter fan, as is documented in my reviews, but this could be good. Kudos for presentation. Always a fan of Eddie Redmayne who I saw on Broadway in RED opposite Alfred Molina. They were both terrific.

Pinksourcing With Kristen Bell — Celebs Have Issues Episode #1

AT HOME WITH THE WHITES BY TED RALL

Another police shooting of a civilian with shifting narratives, another popular uprising, this time in Charlotte, North Carolina. Once again, white Americans are tsk-tsking that African-American rioters are making themselves look bad. The thing is, peaceful protests don't attract national attention.Another police shooting of a civilian with shifting narratives, another popular uprising, this time in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Trump’s Maniacal First 100 Days by Ted Rall

Trump's political genius is centered around his manic style. He issues one outrageous statement after another, so that the media and critics can only beguin to respond to each before it gets eclipsed by the next one, with the net effect that nothing ever gets fully processed. If elected president, he'll probably do the same thing. Hey, it worked for George W. Bush!
