Morning Grind 5.19.16
Absolutely no rain in sight for the duration of today with temperatures hitting 68 degrees.
My Throwback Thursday jam is Wu Tang Clan’s “Da Mystery of Chessboxin” from their 1993 album 36 Chambers. When Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Salt-n-Peppa and the one-hit-wonder Snow were killing it with songs we all still remember, here comes this album that sounds like raw NWA met melodic raps with a raw beat Dre would never mix. One of my favorite lines is when OBD comes in after Method Man with “Here I go, deep type flow. Jacque Cousteau could never get this low…”, it just puts a smile on your face. This high school pre-game pump up song is still just as relevant now before you enter a meeting, as it was before you went on the field. Maybe Hillary should listen to this before she has to face The Donald!

Legislating Can Be Hard Sometimes
We may not have seen the sun lately, but if we celebrate May Ray Day hard enough, maybe it will make an appearance today!
THIS DAY IN HISTORY
On this day in 1967 the world was made a little safer by ratifying the treaty that officially banned nuclear weapons from outer space.
Happy birthday, Andrew Shinn! You’re a gentleman and a scholar.
