    8 Colossal Jackasses From the Right-Wing Fringe: Just-Stop-Being-Poor Edition
    And we’re not even mentioning the speakers at CPAC.

    Sure, there was plenty of tomfoolery and dickishness on display over at CPAC this week—what with Trump’s immigrants-are-coming-to-steal-jobs remark and Paul Ryan claiming poor parents don’t love their kids. But asinine comments were made elsewhere in the right-wing lunasphere. Some doozies:
    ~ Fox Business commentator’s advice on the poor: “Stop being poor.”
    ~ Megyn Kelly scoffs at atheist’s claim that the cross is a religious symbol.
    (Got it, the cross is not Christian. Next week: the Bible, not a book.)
    ~James Bowman: ‘There must be some happy stories about slavery.’
    ~ Arkansas judge: Gay sex “just a small step to having sex with a dog.”

    If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
    if a blade of grass springing up in the fields
    has power to move you, if the simple things in nature
    have a message you understand¬,
    rejoice, for your soul is alive.

    International Women’s Day

    The name of Helen Keller is known around the world as a symbol of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, yet she was much more than a symbol. She was a woman of luminous intelligence, high ambition and great accomplishment who devoted her life to helping others. During her lifetime, Helen Keller was consistently ranked near the top of “most admired” lists. She died in 1968, leaving a legacy that Helen Keller International is proud to carry on in her name and memory.

    ” Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

    Helen Keller

    A Successor to Sagan Reboots ‘Cosmos’

    A poignant moment occurs near the end of the first episode of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” a rollicking 13-part tour of the universe to be broadcast on Fox starting on Sunday.

    Sitting on a rock by the Pacific, Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of the show and director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, pulls out an old desk calendar that had belonged to Carl Sagan, the Cornell astronomer and author. On a date in 1975 he finds his own name. The most famous astronomer in the land had invited young Neil, then a high school student in the Bronx with a passion for astronomy, to spend a day in Ithaca.

    Dr. Sagan kindly offered to put him up for the night if his bus didn’t come. As Dr. Tyson told the story, he already knew he wanted to be an astronomer, but that day, he said, “I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to be.”

    Does the South Have a Battered Psyche? 8 Trends of Bad Health, Gun Violence, Religious Fervor, and Poverty
    In the Deep South, the latest data show that the cycle of poverty, in its many manifestations, is unchanged and holding firm. Why is this?

    It’s easy to say this is how Republicans like to run states—cutting budgets, not raising the minimum wage, opposing labor unions. They let the poor and working class stew in their hardscrabble juices. Meanwhile, they distract voters by accusing liberals of waging war on the few sources of personal power in Southerners’ difficult lives: their religious beliefs and owning guns. But go back several decades when segregationist Democrats ruled; for the most part, they weren’t very different from today’s Republicans.
