That. Would. Be. Awesome. Thanks.

Is it a matter with the state or with the employer? Patient care related or just straight up employment issues?

That is an exactly appropriate use of that song. Perhaps the only one.

I love the ironic use, btw. Similarly, I think every wedding should try to work in a tune like "Working Class Hero," "Positively 4th Street," or "Diamond's and Rust" (the Baez, not Judas Priest, arrangement).

Slide WCH between upbeat dance tunes, or make the band learn it. Maybe make it the song for the bride and her father's dance, or the couple's first dance. Could you imagine an R&B wedding band doing that, early - before everyone's drunk? "You think you're clever and classless and free... But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see!" Have them sing it deadpan, perhaps even upbeat, like it's any other tune. Dance to it like it's totally proper for the event. And never comment on it. Never acknowledge the impropriety of the choice to anyone afterward.

Patient care that could be related to the state and/or employer.

Yes. It's kind of weird watching actors whose performances in the Wire and elsewhere I liked seem weirdly out of place in 1970s New York.

Maggie is great, though.

I talked to the person in our office who handles those daily. She didn't know anyone, but recommended reaching out to the Ohio Society of Health Risk Managers (https://www.ohiohospitals.org/oshrm) and asking for referrals from them.

My in-laws haven't gotten back to me yet.

Re: We are all Slave now.

Republicans to kids: Ah, fuck it.

Quote:
Last month, deep in a 500-page environmental impact statement, the Trump administration made a startling assumption: On its current course, the planet will warm a disastrous seven degrees by the end of this century.

A rise of seven degrees Fahrenheit, or about four degrees Celsius, compared with preindustrial levels would be catastrophic, according to scientists. Many coral reefs would dissolve in increasingly acidic oceans. Parts of Manhattan and Miami would be underwater without costly coastal defenses. Extreme heat waves would routinely smother large parts of the globe.

But the administration did not offer this dire forecast, premised on the idea that the world will fail to cut its greenhouse gas emissions, as part of an argument to combat climate change. Just the opposite: The analysis assumes the planet’s fate is already sealed.

The draft statement, issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), was written to justify President Trump’s decision to freeze federal fuel-efficiency standards for cars and light trucks built after 2020. While the proposal would increase greenhouse gas emissions, the impact statement says, that policy would add just a very small drop to a very big, hot bucket.

“The amazing thing they’re saying is human activities are going to lead to this rise of carbon dioxide that is disastrous for the environment and society. And then they’re saying they’re not going to do anything about it,” said Michael MacCracken, who served as a senior scientist at the U.S. Global Change Research Program from 1993 to 2002.

Re: We are all Slave now.

I mean, the assumption that thing can't get yet even worse seems a pretty suspect.

Yes. It’s also galvanizing the otherwise apathetic Trump base.

I still see blue gains. But this is getting the angry GOP voters exercised.

But it isn’t done yet. Heidkamp just said no. (She’s probably losing this fall, so that not hard for her, but it’s something.)
