Dante, a friend of ours from college has jumped off another cliff, err run for Congress. He needs money to get on the ballot. He's running for the Nebraska Greens. I guess that's how I like my Greens, all cute and local, and not egomaniacal/national.
If my wife had a blog, she'd be writing something frantic about Bob Herbert's item about suspicious investigations in Orlando. I'm afraid I don't have the energy to get that exercised. Still, the creepy part is where Herbert links the current police activity with historical patterns of black vote suppression. But hey, it's the police. They can get away with that sort of thing, right? Otherwise we'd have anarchy, right?
