Here he comes, on the FBI beat

Looks like the FBI is going to learn not to monkey around with the Monkees.
Micky Dolenz, the last surviving member of the pre-fab four from the 1960s, has sued the FBI to get any files on the group released.
What did the FBI collect on the Monkees at the peak of their popularity?
When they had a lot of a peel.

Does anybody know what time it is

The Other McCain talks about his visionary beer drinking buddies.
While nostalgia for the politics of yesteryear is generally misguided, nevertheless history offers inspiring examples of leaders who emerged in moments of crisis, men who knew What Time It Is and didn’t mind being called “extremists” for speaking the unpopular truth. Deo Vindice.

Democrats for Mountain Valley pipeline

HotAir found a good reason for Joe Manchin to support the Democrats' Build Back Better (lite) bill.
It pushes the approval and construction of the Mountain Valley pipeline for natural gas.
Virginia Democrats hate that pipeline, and already ended plans for a pipeline through Augusta County.
But it will help Manchin's West Virginia voters.
Manchin has been trying to get the Mountain Valley Pipeline finished for well over a decade. His version of the proposed bill would give that to him and he could bring home all of the jobs and opportunities (such as LNG exports) that would come with it to his constituents. But this still isn’t close to being a done deal.
We'll see if progressives can swallow this part of the bill.
