Nunn leading in new poll

Apparently those attack ads aren't working.

August 23, 2014


According to the latest poll, released Friday evening, measuring support in the U.S. Senate race in Georgia, Democrat Michelle Nunn leads her Republican challenger David Perdue by seven points. The survey was conducted by the Landmark Communications firm for WSB-TV.

The results of the poll show Nunn with 47 percent of the vote, Perdue with 40 percent, and Libertarian Amanda Swafford with 3 percent. Just 10 percent were still undecided, according to the survey. The poll included 600 “active Georgia voters” and has a +/- 4 percent margin of error.

Ferguson. Sound canons. Flash grenades. Other strangeness.

OK, I'm familiar with tear gas, but reporting from Ferguson, MO., particularly last night, mentions "sound canons" and "flash grenades" used by the police. What are these? And are these part of the new police para-military arsenal? Also wondering by what authority/law the police insisted that the crowd could assemble but only if they kept moving?

Great NYT piece on writing, and failure

I found the comments instructive, too. http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/08/15/failure-writings-constant-companion/
