Economist: How to use superpowers


The status quo has been blown up.

It would be less terrifying if the next Chief Executive weren’t so…random.

We are being asked – nay, told – “Trust me” by an individual whom has shown no behavior worthy of said trust nor exhibited the characteristics of a good leader.

NewYorker: Intellectuals for Trump


amplified_voiceI’m posting this having read it but needing time to consider it. As we know, Trump shook the world with his win.

I’m personally appalled by the man and believe the dignity of the office of the President has just taken a tremendous blow.

This is a man who has mocked a disabled man, disparaged minorities and women and is generally a bombastic, ill tempered and self centered human being.

An interesting site: Letters of note

…an interesting take on sports as an American identity. I’ve never been one to enjoy organized sports on TV or care who passed for how many yards in 1968…but this is an interesting perspective. The jist of this article is that sports in America is the closest thing to the truth our society can collectively embrace? Politics…too divided. Religion…too divided. But sports seems, according to this article, to be a ‘put up or shut up’ kind of truth.
