Vin Igliozzi gave me an education in political grass roots and political loyalty. He loved our country and state; he loved the democratic process and the Democratic Party; and my heart goes out to his sons John and David in their time of grief.

Good piece. This is what happens when you do foreign policy (a) by tantrum and whim, (b) to impress a domestic audience with your muscularity, and (c) to cater to defense contractors. Also, (d) when you barely even know where these countries are.

“It would be great if we could make solar work, but the experts tell us that because of our cloud cover we are not nearly as efficient as most of the States farther west to have clear sunshine, and it is not very effective.” – Senator Sessions

Could be worse. Could be Alabama where the sunshine doesn’t work for solar.

The reported to begin today aren’t about protecting national security, they’re about politics and power. Consider “Palmer Raids” one hundred years ago, and famous response of one legendary lawyer: Zechariah Chafee.

Yet another mass corporate failure on climate. Corporations aren’t people, which is why they make amoral and flawed decisions involving the interests of others.

True. So pass a carbon fee and get things rolling! You’re one of the world’s ten biggest economies. Get us started.

Secretary Reich is right. Ditto on calling Republican judges “conservative.” They are not appointed to be conservative, & they are not conservative in any judicial sense. They are appointed to deliver wins for big Republican donor interests.

Glad to meet with members of the African Community Leadership Forum. RI is a better place because of the contributions of our immigrant communities.

Once upon a time, American Nobel Prize winners gathered at the White House (in the greatest assembly of talent “since Thomas Jefferson dined alone”). Now this.

Alexander Acosta ultimately had no choice but to resign. His sweetheart prosecution deal for a billionaire serial sex offender had failed even to unearth the full extent of the offenses. Taxpayers deserve better.

How sincere is ’s political effort on climate? It supports climate denial group’s gala event, “support of the gala did not necessarily mean it supports climate denial.” With friends like that…

His work on new ways to pay for health care while improving quality, like Primary Care First and the recently-announced kidney care models, are important steps toward paying for value instead of volume and improving the health of Americans.
