March Madness: 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Regional Finals (Round of 8)- Day 1

6:09 TBS Gonzaga-Xavier West Region Xavier is the only true underdog left, but Gonzaga has been waiting for years.

Now From Our Friend Wendell Potter

TMC and I had the good fortune to meet Wendell Potter at one of these Internet conventions we sometimes attend during the height of the debate over Single Payer/Medicare For All, Public Option, and (ugh) Obamacare which hardly did anything except impose some new regulations (minimum coverage that does not eliminate junk insurance, scope out …
