After Show Links & Show Notes Tuesday

Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays Edition

11 April 17

Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays

"The 'wild artistic group,' as you put it, has an average age of fifty-seven, and most of us have heart disease and bladder trouble...” ― Richard Bradford "Red Sky at Morning"

Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays on The After Show means only one thing, it's Tuesday, and the refraction of light on the horizon portends something is a-brewing.

A federal court again tells Texas their Voter ID Law is racist; Minnesota Republicans accuse House Minority Leader Melissa Hortman of racism, for criticizing the all white-male card game the Republicans conduct during floor speeches; and, Jeff Sessions took the Administration’s War on Science to the next level, by discontinuing the commission tasked with raising standards for the use of forensic evidence in criminal proceedings.

For The Last Half, we visit with Chris Reeves, aka Tmsrvo433for reports on Ted Cruz rallying the “troop” leading into today’s Special Election in Kansas; voting sites for the Special Election have been conveniently changed; Georgia has an important Special Election next week; and, the statistics Kris Kobach and the Trump Administration uses to prove non-citizens have illegally voted, is based on as few as fourteen people.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more, on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

But I love the I, steel I-beam
that my father sold. They poured the pig iron
into the mold, and it fed out slowly,
a bending jelly in the bath, and it hardened,
Bessemer, blister, crucible, alloy, and he
marketed it, and bought bourbon, and Cream
of Wheat, its curl of butter right
in the middle of its forehead, he paid for our dresses
with his metal sweat, sweet in the morning
and sour in the evening. I love the I,
frail between its flitches, its hard ground
and hard sky, it soars between them
like the soul that rushes, back and forth,
between the mother and father. What if they had loved each other,
how would it have felt to be the strut
joining the floor and roof of the truss?
I have seen, on his shirt-cardboard, years
in her desk, the night they made me, the penciled
slope of her temperature rising, and on
the peak of the hill, first soldier to reach
the crest, the Roman numeral I--
I, I, I, I,
girders of identity, head on,
embedded in the poem. I love the I
for its premise of existence--our I--when I was
born, part gelid, I lay with you
on the cooling table, we were all there, a
forest of felled iron. The I is a pine,
resinous, flammable root to crown,
which throws its cones as far as it can in a fire.

-- Sharon Olds
