Great read in the New Yorker.


Familiar echoes in the candidacy of Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress.

It's a long article, but the very best part comes the the final paragraph.

A little more than a year before she dies alone, in a retirement home in Carmel, California, Rankin tells a journalist that “if she had her life to relive, she’d do it all again.” She adds, “But this time, I’d be nastier.”

Trump to Rebrand new hotels

The announcement by the Trump Organization comes as marketing and travel experts have suggested that the Republican presidential nominee’s bombastic rhetoric and polarizing presidential campaign has tarnished his businesses.


Bookings at Trump’s hotels were down 59 percent during the first half of 2016, according to the travel site Hipmunk. Meanwhile, foot traffic to Trump-branded hotels, casinos and golf courses has slipped up to 24 percent since the businessman announced his bid for the presidency in June 2015, according to newly released data from the location-based app Foursquare.




I'm not heartbroken at all.

Willie Geist

I always thought you were a lightweight. But you calmly took down goolianie this morning.

I would have gone off on him, but calm took down crazy. Easily and with grace.

Thank you Willie.

Link to Obama speech?

After this speech. They have already started.

Since I can't watch multiple sources at one time, post what you are seeing right now on tv or online.

Good thing he held himself up as a martyr. They just might grant his wish.
