    That is precisely what happens when your brain is small and limits you to either/or thinking. It is possible to respect law enforcement and detest/speak out against their bad apples simultaneously....

    What I don't understand is what DHS was trying to accomplish by setting up a fake university. Did they assume radical islamists would enroll in droves--but didn't?

    I am excited and feel really good about it. The research has been exhausting, and 5 million things can go wrong. But, hopefully, it will be fun. :)

    But see? #WakeUp is inherently dismissive. It's not helpful at all. It just disenfranchises people even more by accusing them of being "asleep"... That's not gonna change anyone's mind.

    What we have in some of the most recent posts are great examples of the depth and breadth of sociopolitical exclusion that kept many people from voting in 2016. It's valid, and I wish more...

    Nicholas Kristof's column for today in the NY Times has this headline: Venezuela Kids are Dying. But it's behind a paywall. Does anyone have a subscription? I can't find a bootlegged copy anywhere.

    Roger was simply pitiful on break points--1 of 12. What 1 of 12 doesn't tell you was that Roger had 0-40 on Stefano's serve at least twice that I saw and only converted 1 of those.
