Given the opportunity he was presented—a candid conversation with the Attorney General of the United States—federal prison inmate Tony Moses took a chance.
“I could get a call tomorrow saying that, ‘Hey, Moses, the Attorney General says let you go,’” he said. “Just thought I’d throw that out there.”
It could have been an awkward moment, but the Attorney General kept it light.
Today’s comic by Mark Fiore is The math of Democracy:
• Conrad Burns, former Montana senator, dead at 81: The three-term Republican raised cattle and built a radio empire (by Montana standards) before winning election to the Yellowstone County Commission in 1986. Then, he defeated two-term Democratic Sen. John Melcher in 1988, calling him "a liberal who is soft on drugs, soft on defense and very high on social programs." His three terms made him the longest serving senators in Montana history.

Did you know that it’s Confederate Heritage Month in Alabama? Eight states still have special Confederate holidays, but Alabama bolsters its Confederate Memorial Day (which popped up this Monday) with a month-long celebration of all that is slave-holding and treasonous.
This gave the Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill another opportunity to play things Confederate sympathizers say.
“Are you going to take a bulldozer to the monument and forget what people fought for to preserve a way of life that makes us special and unique?” …
Civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, slammed the remark as “shameful.” But in a follow-up conversation with ThinkProgress, Merrill explained that the “way of life” he celebrates is based on Confederate soldiers’ independent spirit, not their advocacy for slavery.
Special equals “Independent spirit.” So, it’s the treason he likes, not the slavery?
“When we have things happen in our state, we don’t rely on the federal government to come take care of us,” he said.
