Hump Day links

- PAPERS HAD MORE OBVIOUS DISDAIN FOR CITIZENS BACK THEN. Memphis Memories from June 22, 1885:
"Pittsburgh coal is now selling at 40 cents per barrel and wise Memphians are taking advantage of the low price to lay in their supply for next winter. But not many Memphians are that wise."


- THAT'S A LOT OF BATHROOM BREAKS. Memphis Memories from June 20, 1910:
Mr. and Mrs. George T. Brodnax and their daughter, Miss Sue Brodnax, will leave tonight for Louisville where they have shipped their automobile and whence they will start a 1,500-mile motor trip to New York City. They will follow the same route as Frank Jones, also of Memphis, who made the trip in 11 days.

- WHAT LIBERAL MEDIA? Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC admitted that she has been "working with the White House" on oil spill talking points.

I don't condone a general for publicly vilifying his commander-in-chief during a time of war, but is there any doubt that if Afghanistan commander McChrystal had ripped George W. Bush the way he has the Obamadministration that he'd be a hero to the media and their left-wing Obamaniacs?

- While President Kick-Ass blows smoke up your butt by trying to convince you that his health care reform won't end up with you having to find a new doctor despite evidence to the contrary by his own peeps, here are some GREAT MOMENTS IN GOVERNMENT HEALTH CARE:

"Overstretched maternity units mean mothers face a 100-mile journey to have baby"
"Hundreds of patients died needlessly at NHS hospital due to appalling care"
"Prove you're sick enough for surgery: Cash-strapped NHS trust introduces rationing for common children's conditions"
"Standard of care in some wards 'would shame a third world country'"
"Stafford Hospital caused ‘unimaginable suffering’"
