The Breakfast Club (Creative Energy)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in. Join us every weekday morning at 9am (ET) and weekend morning at 10:00am (ET) (or whenever we get around to it) to talk about current news and our boring lives and to make fun of LaEscapee! If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.

This Day in History

A pivotal battle in the American Revolution; President James Garfield dies; Bruno Hauptmann is arrested in the Lindbergh baby case; Unabomber’s manifesto published; The ‘Mary Tyler Moore Show’ premieres.

Something to Think about over Coffee Prozac

Fear, conformity, immorality: these are heavy burdens. They drain us of creative energy. And when we are drained of creative energy, we do not create. We procreate, but we do not create.
