INFRASTRUCTURE. I’ve been writing about it forever. “Now let’s get it done” — 30 seconds.
FOOLS. “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves, yet wiser people so full of doubts.” — Bertrand Russell

FADERSMITH. I know about that site because my pal Henry sent it to me. Henry is Dan’s husband — Dan whose new album (streaming here free) I plugged yesterday. Great music to accompany water volleyball, or anything else fast-paced and exciting. (Not golf.)
When I say “yesterday,” I mean the column that hit your inbox Thursday. Today’s, like quite a few “Friday” posts, hit Saturday — and there is a reason for that: why should Friday have all the fun? Every other day gets 24 hours before the next post hits — and Friday gets 72? It doesn’t seem fair! So sometimes I post “Friday” on Saturday, to spread things out a little. Now you know.
SAVING THE WORLD. The DNC has begun organizing in nine target states — Virginia, New Jersey, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, and Pennsylvania — with more to follow. The Campaign Pipeline Project, as it’s called, will support recruitment and training of local organizers following the same model Biden-Harris used to mobilize the largest volunteer cohort in presidential campaign history.
Have a great weekend!
