Michael Beschloss is still none to happy about the Rose Garden:

Evisceration of White House Rose Garden was completed a year ago this month, and here was the grim result—decades of American history made to disappear:

At first I thought I was watching some sort of screen... it seems so unreal.

Foo Fighters Troll Westboro Baptist Church Protesters With Disco Tunes

Westboro Baptist Church protesters got a sermon they weren’t quite expecting when the Foo Fighters rolled up to their protest on Thursday night to perform some classic disco tunes and teach them a lesson about love.

The hyper-conservative church known for its homophobic and hateful rhetoric against the LGBTQ+ community were lined up against a stretch of a busy road in Bonner Springs, Kansas, to protest the band’s concert. They were armed with their usual doomsday signs that declared, “God Hates Your Idols,” “Free Will Is a Satanic Lie,” and “God Hates Pride.”

But the Foo Fighters came ready to deliver a message when they rolled up in the back of a truck to perform as their alter-egos the Dee Gees.

“Alright now, ladies and gentlemen, I got something to say,” lead singer Dave Grohl told the none too pleased audience. “Because you know what, I love you. The way I look at it is, I love everybody. Isn’t that what you are supposed to do? Shouldn’t you just love everybody? You shouldn’t be hating. You know what you should be doing? You should be dancing!”

Arkansas hospital exec says health care workers are walking off the job amid spike in COVID-19 cases

Health care workers in Arkansas are starting to walk off the job as instances of short staffing and burnout continue to increase in the state.

Cam Patterson, chancellor of University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, told CNN that several staff members have left their post in the middle of a shifts and some are considering retiring early as they struggle to cope with the demands that the coronavirus and its variants are placing on them.

"Teams are stretched thin. People are frustrated. People are very tired," Patterson said, noting that morale among health care workers has been low. "We are down a significant number of positions here because we just don't have enough nurses that we can recruit to come here and help us to take care of patients."

According to Patterson, nearly 360 health care provider positions are currently vacant within UAMS. About 230 of those vacancies are for nurses, CNN reported.

Patterson said that UAMS has offered to pay signing bonuses of up to $25,000, but even that has had little effect on nurses who say that their mental health and wellbeing has taken a toll.
