Earlier today I posted about ETRM and SIGA, in case you own either.
This is tomorrow’s post a day early to give you extra time to read something great that everyone else is reading and talking about: New Yorker editor David Remnick’s profile of the President.
My friend Peggy Noonan found a way to be . . . troubled . . . by it. But I guess one’s view depends on one’s lenses. Through mine, our President is amazing. Brilliant, steady, far-sighted, loving, decent, disciplined, and completely dedicated to making things better. As I see it, he has accomplished a tremendous amount in the face of unprecedented opposition.
Only 40% or so of those polled these days approve of the job he’s doing. But that’s roughly the same number who believe humans are causing climate change.
Well — spoiler alert! — humans are causing climate change. (And as Nick Kristof points out in this other must-read, we’d really, really, really better start paying attention.) So I think history will ultimately come down on the side of the 40%, not the side of Rush Limbaugh, Roger Ailes, Donald Trump, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin (the list goes on and on) . . . or the various climate-change deniers who chair the House “Science” Committee and its subcommittees.
I hope that between today’s holiday and tomorrow you get a chance to read both. There will be no quiz, but you can be sure they’ll both show up on the final.
See you Wednesday.
