.. isn't that fishy? If, after all of that, a few rich people have all of that money and nobody else does, is that right? Did that experiment work? Let me predict something for you, and if I am wrong, shame on me, but if I am right, shame on the oligarchs: There is a pot of gold in Kansas which may be found at the end of the rainbow, and almost every ounce of that gold will soon find its way into the pockets of a handful of vastly wealthy families, leaving everybody else holding a swirling handful of dust. Brownback is putting the finishing touches on regressive economic policies which have been effectively leveraged upon the entire country by conservatives for decades. What if those economic policies do not actually work in practice? What if conservative economic policies just never work - not in Kansas, not anywhere? What if those policies, though they sound plausible, are in fact mistakes, errors of judgement, or even lies? Wouldn't that produce economic inequality? Wouldn't that result in frustrated, angry masses of people? Trump has risen because people are furious about becoming poor and left out, they want to puff their chests, point their fingers, and shout, "You're fired!" at their government which has failed them, and so they have become an unruly mob filled with heart and courage, but bereft of brains.

Yes, there were key contributions from role players like Quincy Enunwa and Kenbrell Thompkins , who caught a 43-yard rainbow from Fitzpatrick to set up Randy Bullock's game-winning kick. But had Bullock not missed a field goal and an extra point in the first half, those heroics would not have been necessary. And while Fitzpatrick lauded his team after the game, even he admitted to NFL Network sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson that the Jets didn't play especially well: We didn't play well in the first half. Their defense played a really good game, and we knew they were solid coming in, but we just had all kinds of guys stepping up. Enunwa with a huge third-down catch, and on the last drive Kenbrell steps up to make a huge catch catch down the sideline. So everybody's contributing and we've got a lot of confidence. Yes, an ugly win counts the same in the standings as a stylish one.

"Then God said to Noah ," it is written, "'Yes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth'" (Genesis 9:17). It's as if a love song after the storm appears in the sky, a statement of a kind of unconditional love between two entities -divine and human - that have taken each other to the brink. Even Randy Newman admits at the end of "God's Song" that there is a dependency between the two players in this all-stakes drama, one that is very difficult to shake. "You really need me," he sings. "That's why I love mankind." In sacred stories so thick with meaning, the mix of voices spanning time and space challenge our settling into any single meaning. Narratives and counter-narratives are built into Jewish tradition, which invites interpretation and reinterpretation in a constant dance - with both the destroying flood and the protecting ark, as well as love and despair, flowing together through the world of imagination where Randy Newman and Noah meet.

This is just TOO perfect. On Monday, one YouTube user made it clear he had a lot of strong feelings about Kim Davis ' refusal to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples. User Randy Rainbow took to the video streaming site to share a silly and perfect parody to Cell Block Tango from Chicago , and it's all about the Kentucky clerk! [ Video: Did Candace Cameron Skip The View To Avoid Kim Davis Topic? ] He sings about her bigotry, her biggest fan , Mike Huckabee , and her jail time , so its only fitting that he selected a song to spoof that's about being in prison! LOL! Now, even though it was uploaded before she was released , it's definitely still worth a watch! Ch-ch-check it out (below)! [ Image via Carter County Detention Center . ]

The moment it puts a price on software updates, it will make the goal of 1 billion users much harder to reach. Custom Cortana voices Choosing Cortana as the voice of its virtual assistant feature was an endearing nod to gamers. But even those who dig Halo might want something different every now and then. When I get bored with Siri's default voice, I like to turn her into a man with an Australian accent. You can do the same stuff with Cortana, but I'm looking for just a little more. How about a "Macho Man" Randy Savage voice? Yes, that'd be perfect. Imagine: a child who loves Reading Rainbow having a virtual assistant voiced by LeVar Burton. An avid sports fan having the weather read aloud by Dan Patrick. Oh, the possibilities. More Microsoft-made hardware Microsoft struck onto something with its Surface line, which first launched alongside Windows 8.

At times, he recalled Hopkins, Marvin Hamlisch, Dave Brubeck and Randy Newman, with echoes of Bach and George Gershwin. At show's end, he turned to my side of the audience for requests and I blurted out, "Watch Your Step," which features one of the most inspired piano breaks in the Costello oeuvre. (Frankly, I wish I had been able to request two more: "Clubland" and the Rolling Stones' "She's a Rainbow.") And sure enough, Nieve was kind enough to end with that track, playing it to perfection and doing a marvelous variation on the break. Like a dream, as the woman said.
