Would that be the actual Village Voice (Black Walnut Holdings LLC [Peter Barbey]), Village Voice Media (formerly New Times Media; currently publisher of Seattle Weekly), or Voice Media Group?

So confusing!

That throwaway line at the end of the video is the best. THE. BEST. Only theatre nerds know how to do that.

Don't know how I haven't seen that clip all this time.

"I don't think you should have firearms where people are drinking," NRA chief Wayne LaPierre said during an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation."
Is LaPierre suggesting the removal of guns from a significant percentage of American homes? Given the contributions of guns and alcohol to domestic violence, this may be the first good idea he's had.

I've shed a lot of tears myself coming back to this after a week offline. But the thing that makes me so wildly hopeful in spite of it all is the melding, the synergy, the converging arcs. People of color coming together with LGBT folks after California's Prop 8 and the battles for marriage equality. LGBT standing with Black Lives Matter over police brutality. And now, more support and love for the latin@ LGBT community. The growing cries for economic justice, prison reform, mental health and addiction treatment, immigration reform, universal health care, on and on. Every Trump, every fundamentalist, every homophobe, every bullet—hell, every mean tweet—has the exact opposite of its intended effect. It's like watching a jackhammer on concrete where the cracks heal and the block grows thicker with every chattering blow.

The right-wing reactionaries should be the ones going into hiding, if they hope to nurture their toxic ideologies in the dark. There are a lot of closets available for cheap.

Given the context, my brain automatically hyphenated "come glazed" and left me struggling to understand the resulting sentence. Silly brain!

@5: feeble rejoinder. Anything listed @3 that might have tenuous associations with ~transport~ of coal alone is solidly linked to mining, or burning, or both. Removing transport options raises prices, reduces use.
