Outgoing Senator Claire McCaskill is a great American. Listen as she tells it like it is — including her straight talk to some on the left.
Things are a mess (obviously). And yet she tells us to buck up: the country will survive the current insanity.
I like to think she’s right . . . but a lot of the damage seems irreversible. (Just ask those two dead asylum-seeking Guatemalan children, as a small but poignant example.)
We have given away The American Century right on cue. You could argue our century began in 1917, when we entered World War I, and ended in 2017, when we inaugurated “a terrible human being” (in the words of his current chief of staff) and aligned ourselves with journalist-murderers Putin and Erdogan and Duterte and MBS.
I think the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal, among others, are not just mainstream, but deeply dedicated to accuracy. Far from enemies of the people, they are among the citiznery’s most valuable assets.

Quote of the Day
A penny saved may be a penny earned, but it's one boring penny. A penny invested, on the other hand, bounces around. It gets bigger one day, smaller the next. A bit player in the drama of global finance, that penny buys a guy a balcony seat in the theater of macroeconomics.~Susan Stewart
