Ain't No Sunshine...From Paris

Bill Withers. "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone." A classic beauty of a song.
Lenny Kravitz does a fantastic blues remix you must hear. For an immediate treat, pull this one up on YouTube.
For a cool, slow acoustic jazz version, try Sting and David Sanborn.
My little girl who's all grown up, moves into her college dorm tomorrow. Ain't no sunshine when she's gone...

Another story you will not see corrected in MSM

Alleged anti-Muslim attacker works at pro-Islamic group

The apparent anti-Muslim assault on a New York city cabbie by a man shouting “Assalamu Alaikum. Consider this a checkpoint" produced an immediate round of recriminations over its connection to opposition to a New York Islamic Center and an apparent rising tide of Islamophobia.

But as often at the intersection of politics and violent crime, the story doesn't appear to fit: The alleged assailant, Michael Enright, is — according to his Facebook profile and the website of the left-leaning media organization Intersections International — a student at the School of Visual Arts and a volunteer for Intersections, which recently produced a statement of support for the Park51 project and is funded by the mainstream, liberal Collegiate Church of New York.

California continues to make it worse

California rejects even modest pension reform. “Unfunded public pension liabilities, which a Pew Center on the States report calculates is now as high as $1 trillion nationwide, threaten to bankrupt states that fail to address this ticking fiscal time bomb. But in California, which has an unimaginable $500 billion public pension problem and became the object of national ridicule for outrageous pension abuses in Bell, state lawmakers still couldn’t bring themselves to pass legislation preventing highly paid government employees from using unused vacation and sick days accumulated during their last year on the job to pad their life-long pensions.”

UPDATE: Reader Steve Rothstein writes: “To quote Powerline’s John Hinderaker from a June 26 post, ‘The tick (is still) faring much better than the dog.’”

Another story you will not see in MSM. False accusations against tea partiers.

THE UNDER-COVERED STORY OF YESTERDAY IS THIS:“Rep. Russ Carnahan (D) confirmed that former staffer Chris Powers was the individual who ‘firebombed’ his campaign office, not tea party activists as some in the local media had reported.” Much more from Jim Hoft here and here.

Plus, Moe Lane on the under-coverage.

Civil War is just a bit too strong, but anarchy sounds about right


Gunmen from a drug cartel appear to have massacred 72 migrants from Central and South America who were on their way to the U.S., a grisly event that marks the single biggest killing in Mexico's war on organized crime.

Mexican marines discovered the 72 bodies—58 men and 14 women —on Tuesday after the lone survivor of the massacre, a wounded migrant from Ecuador, stumbled into a Navy checkpoint the previous day and told of being shot on Monday at a nearby ranch, Mexican officials said on Wednesday.
