I hope Apollo Creed, the original “Master of Disaster,” isn’t upset at TIME referring to Chris Christie as the same.

A Big Storm Requires Big Government - NYTimes.com ↘

Over the last two years, Congressional Republicans have forced a 43 percent reduction in the primary FEMA grants that pay for disaster preparedness. Representatives Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor and other House Republicans have repeatedly tried to refuse FEMA’s budget requests when disasters are more expensive than predicted, or have demanded that other valuable programs be cut to pay for them. The Ryan budget, which Mr. Romney praised as “an excellent piece of work,” would result in severe cutbacks to the agency, as would the Republican-instigated sequester, which would cut disaster relief by 8.2 percent on top of earlier reductions.

James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa.

From an email written by former president JIMMY CARTER, congratulating his grandson, James, for helping to unearth Romney’s 47 Percent video.

TOO GOOD

I am not, have not been and never will be a Tampa Bay Rays fan but on Sept. 20th, when the team holds “Star Trek Night” and hands out these awesome t-shirts featuring a Borg-ified Joe Maddon, I might make an exception.  Because resistance is futile.

Photographers: Know Your Rights (ACLU) ↘

futurejournalismproject:

The ACLU’s published a photographer’s cheat sheet on their rights when shooting in the field (US only):

  • When in public spaces where you are lawfully present you have the right to photograph anything that is in plain view.
  • When you are on private property, the property owner may set rules about the taking of photographs.
  • Police officers may not generally confiscate or demand to view your photographs or video without a warrant.
  • Police may not delete your photographs or video under any circumstances.
  • Police officers may legitimately order citizens to cease activities that are truly interfering with legitimate law enforcement operations.
  • Note that the right to photograph does not give you a right to break any other laws.

Click through for explanations of each, advice on what to do if stopped or detained, exceptions for shooting around airports and special considerations for videography (eg., “With regards to videotaping, there is an important legal distinction between a visual photographic record (fully protected) and the audio portion of a videotape, which some states have tried to regulate under state wiretapping laws.”)
