South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi L. Noem spent $449,000 (more that $0.50 per resident of South Dakota!) on a campaign to educate state residents about the state's program to address its methamphetamine epidemic. That campaign's slogan? "Meth: I'm On It.". The slogan has been widely mocked. Noem insists that this is all part of a cunning plan because "any publicity is good publicity.". Appearing to respond to the backlash in a Sunday evening tweet, Noem bought into the adage that any publicity is good publicity. She suggested the campaign was successful because so many people were talking about it. In a separate statement emailed to The Washington Post, she called the anti-meth initiative “a bold, innovative effort like the nation has n.

The federal criminal indictments today against two jail guards at a Manhattan jail where pedophile and child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein died reveal interesting new facts. Two guards at the prison facility, Michael Thomas and Tova Noel, have been indicted for falsifying records on the night of Epstein's death. The case involving the two guards, and the new facts in the indictment against them, do not change the official determination that Epstein died by suicide. And none of this will satisfy people determined to believe Epstein was murdered, or is still alive. NEW: Surveillance video shows that besides the two officers charged today, no one entered the SHU -- where Epstein was housed -- at anytime during the night he died, the indictmen.

I've written about : that's the worker-owned co-op of home cleaners in New York City that has built a version of the on-demand economy that keeps the convenience but jettisons the predatory capitalists, and as a result, is able to pay its workers $25/hour.

Earlier today, Phillip (who is wonderful, you should ) tweeted that current Trump White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham claims that White House aides for outgoing President Barack Obama aides left 'you will fail" notes in offices for incoming Donald Trump aides. “We came into the White House, I’ll tell you something. Every office was filled with Obama books and we had notes left behind that said ‘you will fail,’ ‘you aren’t going to make it.’”Baller if true. If not, it's a good idea. Seems awfully unlikely is my take. WH Press Sec Stephanie Grisham claims Obama aide.

Propublica has obtained a tranche of leaked internal communications between the Sackler family's Purdue Pharma, makers of the lethal opioid Oxycontin, and Dezenhall Resources, known as "The Pitbull of Public Relations," whose previous client roster includes Enron CEO Jeff Skilling, Exxon and other "beleaguered corporations," who masterminded a "blame the victim" strategy that apportioned responsibility for Oxycontin's mounting death toll on the people who became addicted to it -- not the Sacklers and Purdue, who falsified science, bribed doctors, and made billions from an epidemic that has now claimed more American lives than the Vietnam War. The leaks reveal how Dezenhall took credit for the work of psychiatrist Sally Satel, a "resident sc.
