• In Queensland, Australia, a horse named Party Till Dawn tested positive for methamphetamine. That makes the aptly-named mare “the only other horse in the state to test positive for methamphetamine was Island Tang in Mackay in October last year.” 

• Cuba has found a curious way of paying off its debt to the Czech Republic: rum—specifically 276 million dollars worth. Of course, as the BBC notes, “Prague said it preferred to get at least some of the money in cash.” For the life of us, we don’t understand why. That said, please don’t try and pay for your Baffler subscription with booze—we only accept that form of currency for donations.

• Meet the asshole white nationalist who’s considering a Congressional run after getting in trouble over . . . hosting a conference that featured Nazi salutes.

• This “old clown” looks nice and spiffy after its makeover.
