As California appears to be putting brakes on high-speed rail project, a reminder: US is completely outside of the norm on intercity rail investment, & its transportation system is less effective, less convenient, & less ecologically sensitive as a result.

I just published "lit-plugin": a vscode plugin that adds type checking, code completion and highlighting for lit-html. It automatically finds web components in your code and libraries! Please give it a try and tell me what you think :-)

The Green New Deal resolution out today isn’t so much a concrete plan to cut emissions so much as a manifesto for a restructuring of American society to thrive in the climate change era.

New Mexico's Democratic-run state House has passed a bill to join the National Popular Vote Compact, which would assign NM's 5 Electoral College votes to the popular vote winner if enough states with a 270 majority of EVs also sign up (currently 172 have)

Is negative partisanship observably higher in a two-party system? Seems to me that what we're seeing in the US today is what a zero-sum game looks like in its failure case. Not pretty.

HR1 is a nice gesture, but to really fix what's broken, Dems need to put country before party and push reforms to break the duopoly: get rid of partisan primaries, adopt proportional representation, neuter the Electoral College by getting National Popular Vote across the line...

1) Agree an independent run by Schultz in 2020 is a terrible idea. 2) Strongly resent that our political system makes this true.
