Old Bailey Online May 23
We'd like to remind everyone that the website has an extensive guide to the *limitations* of the Old Bailey Proceedings as a historical source. Not least: 1) the reports are not verbatim transcripts; 2) they do not include the *final* outcomes of cases.

Curious how many 19th century Britain social history phds currently working as adjuncts at state school satellite campuses died of schadenfreude over this incident.

All of this insanity could be brought to a halt if four GOP senators chose to caucus with the Democrats. That's it. All it takes is four people to do what virtually every Republican in DC knows should be done. But they will never do it.

DOJ, Mueller, Congress, intelligence agencies, social platforms, media. It's like the lowest moments of the first campaign all over again, except he has all the powers of the presidency now.

Three things happened in quick succession today: 1) DOJ criminalized core journalistic activities as espionage 2) Trump made his AG the fact-finder where independent ones had found nothing 3) Trump started tweeting obvious fakes abt his adversaries

We’ve created an entire generation of politician whose number one (or number two) objective is creating and maintaining Internet celebrity. And none of us are better for it.
