On the power of currency versus POLITICAL currency: Alessandra Biaggi spent 10 times LESS than NYS Sen Jeffrey Klein and kicked his butt. I imagine new metrics (e.g. social) will be bigger part of political reporting repertoire as old metrics fail.

Many of us are listening, enthralled, to Bob Woodward make the rounds on his new Trump book. This Joan Didion essay about his style of journalism is a MUST-READ. She's basically saying: the emperor has no clothes. She bases this charge on a close read of several of his books.

Nearly a third of the American work force — ONE IN THREE - earn less than $12/hour. Almost none of their employers offer health insurance. So yes, poverty is absolutely the product of immorality -- just not the immorality of the working poor.

"[Umpire] Ramos made himself the chief player in the women’s final. He marred Osaka’s first Grand Slam title and one of Williams’s last bids for all-time greatness. Over what? A tone of voice."

This profile sent shivers down my spine. Osaka's dad, Haitian by birth, was in Japan watching the French Open when he saw teenage Venus and Serena playing. That inspired him to train his daughters years later. Naomi Osaka’s Breakthrough Game

A new poll from NALEO/Latino Decisions finds that about 60% of Latino voters say they've not been contacted by a campaign/political party etc... Nothing - no mail, text, email, or door knocks.
