Clinton Endorsed by Koch?

"In a double whammy to Republicans, billionaire industrialist Charles Koch — one half of the evil Koch Brothers duo — said in an ABC interview that will air on “This Week” on Sunday that Hillary and Bill Clinton were better presidential material than most Republicans."  (source)

This is hardly the kind of endorsement that most progressive Clinton supporters want, but certainly one that vindicates what Sanders supporters have been saying all along regarding Clinton's appeal to corporate interests rather than popular ones.

George Clooney, Enabler

"George Clooney may be helping Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton raise millions for her campaign and for her party this weekend — but he agrees with her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, on one point.

Sanders has criticized such fundraisers as "obscene." When asked by "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd to respond to Sanders' criticism of the fundraisers he is holding for Clinton, the actor and activist responded, "Yes. I think it's an obscene amount of money ... The Sanders campaign, when they talk about it is absolutely right. It's ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics. I agree completely."

On Friday night, Clooney co-chaired an event in San Francisco to raise money for the Hilary Victory Fund. To get a seat at a roundtable with George Clooney, his wife Amal and Hillary Clinton, as well as a prime spot at the dinner, a couple would've had to pay or raise $353,400."  (source)

New World Record for Super Mario Bros. Speedrun

Speed Runner "Darbian" from Virginia, USA has improved on his previous world record by 167 milliseconds, completing the game on a Classic NES without any tool assists at 4:57:260. He has announced to the world, "I have reached my potential in this category - I'm done! My quest is over."

History is full of people who forge ahead and innovate or create something new, and that's important. Yet in the tradition of the Zen arts, there is also something to be said for someone who is willing to go back to a previous challenge and dedicate themselves completely to it, attaining something close to the definition of "perfection."

As an added bonus, watch Darbian's heart rate monitor double as he reaches the final stages and realizes he may beat his own world record!
