Thanks! So much of the back and forth in Texas (but also, everywhere) is about which sector has a funding advantage. There's much less discussion of which charter districts tend to benefit and which are hurt by state funding policies.

Wow. Wondering why we don't have enough masks or testing equipment and can't scale up quickly? Susan Collins killed almost $1B in spending for pandemic flu preparedness. Personally. All by herself.

Super interesting paper on institutional responses to the 2016 presidential election. I'm hoping this work's relevance doesn't spike in 8.5 months (though I'm sure it will remain relevant regardless of the 2020 outcome). Nice work and

This graph was laughable even when it was first made. But given the number of times this graph in particular (and the less ridiculous variations of it) have been publicly ridiculed, it's rather surprising anyone would try to use this graph to make a point?
