7. I have an iPad...

And have no trouble copying and pasting. Have only used an iPad for about 5 years, on my second one my wife uses the mini pad, her second, also has no problem. If you have trouble copying from the “original” web page, put the browser in “Reader” mode by tapping on the lines that are in front of the url up in the address bar. It enlarges the text, takes out some breaks and makes copying a ton easier.

9. I have an iPad too, and have no problem copying. I deliberately did not post any excerpts.

I wanted people to read the whole article. Is that wrong in DU world?

10. Not wrong, but most DU members will not follow a blind link.

If you really want people to read the article, the best way to do that is to post a snippet.

Posting a link = virtually no one follows the link
Posting a link + snippet = most will still just read the snippet (most DU members are still reluctant to do more than read the paragraph posted and jump to conclusions. That said, a well-chosen snippet is your best bet to entice some people to follow the link to read more.

12. Not wrong at all...

Ms.Toad explained it very well. And if you peruse down thread you’ll see when the article is really hard hitting other DUers will post more paragraphs from the story so even if some don’t click the link if they read the entire thread more of the article is there.

Plus I was posting to True Blue American about their inability to post excerpts from their iPad. No problem, Welcome to DU!

4. Excellent journalist -

who also happens to be the wife of Sherrod Brown (potential presidential candidate)

If there is a commonly held image of how a political spouse should behave—seen and heard but not too much, not exactly muzzled but certainly measured, ever aware of some nebulous, help-or-hurt calculus—Connie Schultz is not it. And only Sherrod Brown—no other person who might run for president—has a her. She’s not just a spouse who’s a journalist. She’s a spouse who’s a journalist who’s a liberal feminist columnist who’s won a Pulitzer Prize and teaches journalism at her alma mater, Kent State University. She’s a spouse who’s a journalist who’s a liberal feminist columnist who’s won a Pulitzer Prize and who is a Christian who actually practices her faith. She’s a spouse who’s a journalist who’s a liberal feminist columnist who’s won a Pulitzer Prize who is a Christian and who also packs a blue-collar backstory as the Ashtabula-born-and-bred-daughter of a maintenance mechanic and a nurse’s aide. She has working-class cred, a powerful platform and opinions she is utterly unafraid to express. And she’s all these things at a moment when the current president is unceasing with his anti-press invective.

“I am the woman he hates,” Schultz said, getting water from the fridge

6. Here is a paragraph from the article

>>>

In the past three and a half years, since Trump descended on his escalator and announced he was running, her criticism of him has been withering and unremitting. On Twitter (where she has more than 54,000 followers), on Facebook (183,000 and counting), and in her columns, she has accused him of “spewing racism and xenophobia to cheering crowds of white people.” She has called him “the most dangerous man running for president in our lifetimes.” She has ripped him as “a chronic and unapologetic liar.” She has called his anti-democratic media-denigrating “venom” “toxic” and “contagious.” Earlier this month, when Trump said the closing of a GM plant in eastern Ohio “doesn’t really matter,” Schultz seethed. “Come to Lordstown and say that,” she tweeted at the president. “Tell all those Ohio families now facing potential ruin that what they’re going through ‘doesn’t really matter.’”

8. I have been reading her columns for years

You can find her on Creators.com

Every column an absolute gem. I just love her writing.

She grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio, about 50 minutes away from me. She went to Kent State the same time I was there. We share just about every opinion there is to share. I would definitely encourage all you DUers to start reading her columns.

15. Fantastic person.

She and Sherrod are great people to have on our side. And may I say, she would be very refreshing as a First Lady!
