There’s a lot of speculation that Trump is going to fire Mueller and congress is going to let him if we don’t act right away. There are a lot of suggestions that the firing is going to take place next week while many Americans are traveling or celebrating the holidays. Here’s information on where and when you can go to protest. If it happens before 2pm, the protest will be 5pm that day. If it happens after 2pm, then the protest will be at noon the next day.

I had never heard of Leadbelly until this week when I was curious about the origins of Black Betty.

It’s astonishing how many of these songs later became huge hits when covered by white dudes.
