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

I owe this quote to Your Bias Is, a site that helps us understand 24 ways we think unclearly . . . from Anchoring to the Spotlight Effect to the Dunning-Kruger Effect (whence the Bertrand Russell).

If the world is round not flat / Biden the rightfully-elected president not Trump, then reviewing these 24 impediments to rational thought can help explain why tens of millions believed / believe otherwise even after the evidence was indisputable.



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.

Be part of this?



Have a great weekend!
