Indiana doesn't make it in the news too often, and sadly, for the people of the Hoosier state, this is what happens when it does get its 15 minutes of fame.

Paranoid Republican Rep. Bob Morris reportedly accused the Girl Scouts of being a radical branch of Planned Parenthood. More specifically, he said the youngsters are out there promoting homosexuality and abortion, one cookie at a time.

Well, that sure is an interesting take on the "every cookie has a mission" mantra.

I don't know about you, but never once in the last 30 years of my cookie-buying career has a Girl Scout promoted abortions alongside Tagalongs, nor have I had unwanted thoughts of gay sex or considered fetuses while devouring boxes and boxes of Thin Mints.

But that's just me.

Morris, on the other hand ...

He's so damn convinced that the Girl Scouts are a bunch of radical lesbian feminists that he's taken his own daughters out of the all-American institution, which by the way is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. He's decided to put his girls in a safer, and undoubtedly, more sane alternative to Girl Scouts, the American Heritage Girls.

Enough of me; listen to Morris' crazy-talk yourself:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
