But first: might you want this app, called Jumbo, to increase your privacy? Or to sanitize some of your social media history now that you’re out looking for a job? Check it out.

But first, my classmate Dan writes: “Octopi are amazing. For example, each arm has its own personality. I’ve stopped consuming them.”
This is troubling, because I sure do like grilled octopus. Now if I keep ordering it I’ll have to wonder whether I’m eating […]
The Patriotic Millionaires held a half-day conference in DC yesterday morning.
Fox News’ Stuart Varney hated it.
Not that he attended, but he didn’t need to.
He hates socialism — and apparently believes that America in the 1950’s under Eisenhower (when the marginal rate on the best off was 90%) was a socialist country […]
Picking up from yesterday . . .
(“According to a new poll, 55% of Americans favor abolishing the Electoral College. Unfortunately, because of the Electoral College, 55% is less than half.” — Seth Myers)

I don’t know whether he’s underestimating the risks in MNKD shares (on a lark, I bought a few when they dipped to $1.01 a while back; Guru counseled against it).
I do know he’s not overestimating […]
By focusing on corporate tax cuts that have widened inequality yet further instead of on critically needed infrastructure revitalization that would have put people to work at good jobs, Trump has given us the largest budget deficit in history and, with his trade wars and threatened Mexican border shutdown, a possible end to the long […]
Quote of the Day
To the BELOVED REPUBLIC under whose equal laws I am made the peer of any man, although denied political equality by my native land, I dedicate this book with an intensity of gratitude and admiration which the native-born citizen can neither feel nor understand.~Dedication to Andrew Carnegie's Triumphant Democracy (Scribner's, 1886)
