Good evening everyone! Day 1024 of the #WorstPresidentEver. We’re still standing but Trump’s getting impeached; unfortunately, not removed.

We have some awesome energized bunnies out there submitting some good stuff; please keep it up.

Today in History: The Berlin Wall came down. If you have a moment, take a look at the article I linked. It illustrates how the east still struggles.

A group in Berlin has sent Donald Trump a piece of the barrier that divided East and West for nearly three decades as a dig at the president’s southern U.S. border plans.

A 2.7-tonne section of the Berlin Wall is being delivered to the White House as part of “The Wall Against Walls” initiative by the Berlin-based pro-democracy nonprofit group Die Offene Gesellschaft (The Open Society).

Newsweek:

Today in Music History:

1962:  The Miracles released the first song produced by Smoky Robinson–“You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me”.

I liked the song; it was fine. Personally, my favorite Miracles’ song was Tracks of My Tears. I’ve seen Smokey live several times and love the man.

1967 – The first issue of Rolling Stone was published in San Francisco. John Lennon was on the cover. 

1970: Santana released the single “Black Magic Woman”.  (Note:  many websites erroneously report the date of release as November 14, the date the song debuted on the chart.  Repeat after me:  “It is physically impossible for a song to debut on the chart the same day it is sent to radio stations.”  If we can get enough people repeating that, we can all work to stop misrepresentation of facts.)

1998:  Rick James was taken to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a stroke.

Stroke’s no joke-

On Thursday, Prince’s estate released another unreleased track.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and be safe!

Welcome back, America!
