Stop the Presses: Kennedy Ate Bacon on a Friday

Posted By on Tue, Jan 20, 2009 at 11:50 AM

As we just learned from George Stephanopoulos while watching the Inauguration (and listening to the endless stream of factoids issuing forth from the lips of well-paid commentators essential to such occasions), John F. Kennedy breakfasted on bacon on the morning of his Inauguration, even though it was a Friday -- by special dispensation from the Church. "The Pope said, we're going to celebrate today; Catholics can eat meat." 

Even He knew that things go better with bacon.

  • 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.'"
