The [Wednesday] Papers

We're having a party and you're invited.

Truly, everyone is invited. We'd love to see you - even if you hate me or think I hate you! Life is too short.

RSVPs welcomed only so we can know how many miles of fun to plan for.

Because I'm an idiot outside of my chosen profession, I used an evite thingy for the first time and mistook EventBrite for E-Vite, or whatever, and let me just say EventBrite is confounding. So not everybody got onto that contact list. Nonetheless, you can RSVP via EventBrite (I think by "buying" a free ticket), or via the EventBrite posting on the Beachwood Facebook page, or personally to me.

If you didn't get an invite via one of my contact lists, no problem! That was just a starter set. Again, y'all are invited. Just let us know. Hope to see you.

Now Just Five Men Own Almost As Much Wealth As Half The World's Population
"In 2016 alone, the richest 1% effectively shifted nearly $4 trillion in wealth away from the rest of the nation to themselves, with nearly half of the wealth transfer ($1.94 trillion) coming from the nation's poorest 90% - the middle and lower classes."

Parochial School

Think about how many TV stations and newspapers Tribune Company once owned - and Tribune Media and Tronc continue to own - around the country and then cry to me about loss of local ownership. The time for tears was a long time ago when Tribune's greed-minded expansion began the company's downward spiral.
