Open Mic July 6
On this first full week of the summer, we lost Andy Griffith. We celebrated the 236th anniversary of the date on the Declaration of Independence, though without fireworks in many areas near the nation’s capital, owing to a lack of electric power. We learned that a tiny sliver of a penalty is viewed by the Republican establishment as the largest tax increase in history…but according to Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney it’s only a tax if it’s done by the federal government, not by a state. And concrete evidence of the existence of the incredibly massive Higgs bosons was at last found.
But it’s Friday, which means it’s your day to pick the subjects of discourse.
Don’t see an article on a particular topic, but want to talk about it somewhere? This is Open Mic. Talk about whatever you want, but stay respectful.
We create a new Open Mic every week to give a clean slate, but feel free to add to this topic at any time.
