If you’ve ever been to a live Moth show in New York, you may recognize Mazz Swift, who often plays the role of timekeeper while people are telling their stories. Before each Mainstage, Mazz plays some really beautiful pieces for the violin… and we’re very happy to be able to share one with you.
Mazz is finally producing an album to showcase some of her amazing work over the last few years, so make sure to show her some love by supporting her Kickstarter!
Investigative reporter Philip Shenon wrote a book called “A Cruel and Shocking Act” in which he studies the Warren Commission’s investigation of the JFK assassination:
The destruction of evidence begins within hours of the president’s death. President Kennedy is assassinated on a Friday. On Saturday night his autopsy report is pushed into the fireplace by the Navy pathologist. Several hours after that, FBI agents in Dallas shred a handwritten note that Oswald had left for them a few weeks before and flush it down the toilet. Then several hours after that, Marina Oswald, Oswald’s widow, puts a match to photographs that show her husband holding the assassination rifle. And that’s just the first weekend of evidence destruction; it goes on, and on, and on in the weeks that follow.
Scott Walker brags that he knows how to win blue state elections.
In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker makes his case for the Republican 2016 nomination. See he knows how to win over Democratic voters. “Mr. Obama won Milwaukee County with 67.5% of the vote; I won with nearly 60%,” he writes.
I won’t subject you to more. I just want to point out that Scott Walker’s style of electioneering has resulted in fifteen felony charges for his staffers. And that was only in round one of investigations. Round two is just getting under way.
Having Scott Walker tell you how to win elections is like John Dillinger lecturing you on the subject of bank security.
