Night regurgitates day in images that ride their REM waves, waves that slap the hard beach repetitively, incessantly, omnipresent in the fog of sleep and in the spaces between the incidental, accidental thoughts that drift by during timeouts in the day. Like now.
Endless road ahead
Moonlight summons old spirits
The Earth a cocoon
Alas, poor car, you did me no wrong.
If we forged a spiritual bond,
I broke it that February day.
Was I wool gathering or were his lights
out? No mind. Spilt milk. Misdeed done.
I never knew the freedom you brought
me until the day we parted on
Route 7. Oh my Toyota Matrix
2003, how I miss you! I’m sorry.
Out of juice, I have to say
this thirsty page before me lay.
The manhole cover is doing its job;
life underground remains in a fog.
I’ve got an itty bitty
Just under my arm—
but it’s pritty gritty!

Most municipalities have a line citizens can call if they have info on a suspect without giving the caller’s name. When callers contact the FBI perhaps they should notify their local hotline that they have just contacted the FBI about a local concern, giving the locals a “heads up.” Is there a flaw in my thinking?
Sorry for old news (2017), but it was new to me:
Meredith Corp., a magazine publisher and broadcast company, will acquire Time Inc. in a deal totaling $2.8 billion, the company announced Sunday. The all-cash transaction is backed by an affiliate of Koch Industries, headed by the controversial billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch….
The Koch brothers have become controversial figures for their lavish spending to back political candidates and causes, most of them conservative. By some estimates the pair spent nearly $1 billion during the 2016 federal election cycle. There is speculation that the brothers are diversifying their investments into media to have greater influence in culture and shaping popular opinion on issues such as tax policy and climate change.
