HERE’S A TREAT

It’s not every day that we get to see Joe play his guitar on the show, but, recently, he had a special moment with Graham Nash from the 1970s band Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. Nash came by to talk about his new book “Wild Tales: A Rock and Roll Life,” a memoir that takes a look into the chaos of the Rock & Roll music industry—complete with shocking tales of drug addiction and fall outs.

NASH’S BEST ADVICE?

Teach your children well, obviously. But lately he’s also been taking a stand and rallying to save the environment. He’s not a fan of the Koch Brothers (you know, those guys who own everything), and he wonders, aloud, why they need to make more and more money at the expense of our planet. He urges the audience to think about the future.

Thousands of liberal and conservative brains were carefully studied earlier this year by the fine folks at Pew Research Center. The evidence is in—conservatives stick to ultra-conservative news outlets and don’t trust much else—I know, shocking. Liberals like to defriend people over politics (on Facebook and in real life)— it’s probably for the best. And if there’s one site that’s distrusted by just about everyone, it’s Buzzfeed.

Ron Klain has been appointed as the new Ebola czar for the U.S., making him responsible for coordinating the administration’s response to the disease in the states. Here are some facts about Klain that make him qualified for the job:

1) He’s a lawyer.

2) He was a lobbyist for Fannie Mae until 2005.

3) He is General Counsel at Revolution LLC, a venture capital firm.

4) He was once portrayed by Kevin Spacey in HBO’s Recount, a film about the turmoil of the 2000 U.S. presidential election.

Oh, you’re right. Those facts don’t qualify him for the job because Ebola is not a corporate giant in need of help getting out of its taxes, it’s a raging virus that is killing people in the thousands. He’s not a health official, he’s a lawyer and a politician. We have Ebola experts at the CDC who can hardly get a handle on this virus, but Obama seems to think it’s a good idea to put Klain in charge to work out the “managerial” issues. Here’s a news flash Mr. President: Ebola is not willing to negotiate.
