The Breakfast Club (Spring Snow)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:00am (ET) (or whenever we get around to it) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.

This Day in History

American and British forces invade Iraq; U.S. soldiers charged in Abu Ghraib scandal; France’s Napoleon regains power; ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’; Sarin attack hits Tokyo subway; John Lennon marries Yoko Ono.

Breakfast Tunes

A portion of the proceeds from “Found/Tonight” will go toward the “March for Our Lives,” the movement that on Saturday will bring rallies across the nation calling for school safety and gun limits.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.
