Have you seen the Trump vs. Sanders debate on Comedy Central? More than 4 million people have.
Have you seen “Kids React to Donald Trump“? Nearly 10 million people have.
Have you seen that Donald ducks releasing his tax returns?
(Actually, a friend notes — thanks, Paul! — he ducks almost any detailed […]
The cover of The Economist:
. . . [I]t is now clear that Republicans will be led into the presidential election by a candidate who said he would kill the families of terrorists, has encouraged violence by his supporters, has a weakness for wild conspiracy theories and subscribes […]
Paul Lerman: “Re Friday’s one minute of Republicans on their presumptive nominee, I wanted to be sure you saw these — Colbert is just too funny! A Brief History Of Laughing At Trump — only a minute, not to be missed. Why Would God Let Trump Happen? — six minutes.”

Sorry yesterday’s post was late. I assume you dropped everything when it arrived and spent three-plus hours watching those two Trump movies.
You deserve a little breather today, so it’s just a minute that should bring a smile to the face of anyone who likes the work Vincent Van Gogh . . . […]

Maybe not entirely, but this display is still pretty amazing. (Thanks, Ross!)
Watch Intel’s Drone 100, a magical and elaborate airborne music and light experience created by a fleet of 100 unmanned aerial vehicles. The team created an outdoor flying drone light show synched to a live orchestra.
When all 100 light-equipped drones danced […]
