I should say something about Levon and The Band, I guess. I still remember coming back to the States from Vietnam. San Francisco. Downtown somewhere, can't remember which theater anymore, there was a movie, just came out, and it was called Easy Rider. Peter Fonda and Harley choppers from the pictures outside. Had to see it. The signature song from that movie that's never left my mind was The Weight. Still gives me special feelings to remember it. I don't need to hear it played anymore, its in my mind whenever I want to hear it, but I love to.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
