But first, Susan Collins.
I don’t care who replaces her, I just want her OUT.
If that’s all you care about too, click here to give to the anybody but Collins fund.
Now deeply in Trump’s pocket and seeking her fifth term — having initially pledged not to serve more than two — she’s […]
Feedback often doesn’t connect.
Here, in four minutes, a simple 4-step formula to address that.
(I’m not saying you give ineffective feedback . . . but if I were saying that, these four steps might enable me to say it to you better.)
And here’s a little feedback for the Supreme Court, which […]
But first, the virus:
From the New York Times: can you boost your immune system?
Here’s a real-time world map of Covid-19 cases, deaths, and recoveries. Vast numbers of cases have surely never been reported, so the number of recoveries must also be much higher; but this is the data currently available.
Let’s allow ourselves just a short paragraph of spilt milk, then on to your money.
SPILT MILK: If Nader had endorsed Gore or the Florida votes had been counted fairly, there would have been no war in Iraq, no right-wing Supreme Court, no Citizens United, no Trump; we’d have made far more progress on […]
Don’t forget that your digital devices will automatically jump forward from 2AM to 3AM Sunday morning.

You know who has what must be one of the hardest jobs in the world? The chair of the Democratic National Committee. […]
Have you ever listened to his 2009 farewell speech? It’s not short — he was saying good-bye after 36 years to assume the Vice Presidency! […]
Conservative columnist Max boot: This is how democracy dies — in full view of a public that doesn’t care.
He’s talking to you, Carl and Peter and Tom . . . and so many other good people. I think you do care; you’ve just become so invested in your team’s view — the view […]
Really? The stock market’s fallen 12% in a week (versus 22.6% in a day, October 19, 1987) and you’re going to write about ham???
Well, no. It turns out that Westphalian sovereignty has nothing to do with ham. And I’m not writing about it, merely learning from what one of you wrote.
