$1 SMARTYPANTS FICTION (A LA PYNCHON). Here are 2 novellas told in stream-of-consciousness style. The first relates the crazy life and thoughts of the psychiatrist Dr. Ed; the second interrelated conversations among Japanese expats. I loved both novellas. Cerebral, absurd, full of word play but never too much. Reviewers have called it: “clever,” “wild ride,” the “perfect book for these chaotic, stressful times.” https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/660908?ref=personvillepress

Once dubbed the "Holy Grail of Garage Punk," this 1966 track by a short-lived Iowa band was so rare that copies recently sold online for more than $1000. The song is so loud and angry that just listening to it will earn you a felony. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cm9iyPQeG2A

Further confirmation of what has already been widely known. Shockingly, MIT authors also calculated that "nearly half of drivers can declare a loss on their taxes... If drivers are fully able to capitalize on these losses for tax purposes, 73.5% of an estimated U.S. market $4.8B in annual ride-hailing driver profit is untaxed." https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/03/02/590168381/uber-lyft-drivers-earning-a-median-profit-of-3-37-per-hour-study-says

I've really been enjoying this playlist -- especially the fun ditty from 1913, "Row, row, row" by Arthur Collins and Bryon Harlan. https://archive.org/details/PopMusicHistory1900-1925

Wow, I'm watching Will & Grace live on NBC TV -- and am astonished to see a political ad for Republican Dan Patrick. Sorry, Patrick, I'm afraid that "people who watch Will & Grace" and "people who will vote for you" will never have any overlap. (But thanks for subsidizing one of my favorite shows!) https://www.texasobserver.org/with-anti-gay-marriage-resolution-dan-patrick-accepts-defeat/

CUTENESS ALERT: These adorable kids try breakfasts from other countries and give their (spontaneous) reactions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGjeaHe7GkY

99 CENTS -- AMAZING KINDLE DEAL: Here's a Vietnam war novel by my writing teacher at college Robert Flynn. Flynn is one of Texas's best kept literary secrets. I haven't read this title yet -- though I have read and reviewed (and LOVED) 5 or 6 other Flynn titles. I actually heard Flynn read a chapter from this book at an author event -- GREAT STUFF! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0037KMWF6/

It seems virtually certain that in post-2020 politics, Medicare Extra for All will pass. When it does, it will be interesting to see how committed the private sector is to preserving employer-based health insurance in the face of an opt-in alternative. My guess is that this will be a burden that corporations will freely and gladly load off their plate. If Trump were politically savvy (and let's be clear: he is NOT), he would embrace Medicare Extra for All and call it what he always planned to do. But Congrats to CAP for threading the needle and coming up with a plan that even conservatives will be unable to demonize. https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/healthcare/reports/2018/02/22/447095/medicare-extra-for-all/
