I rarely say that political people or journalists should have private-sector experience. I don't believe that. But it would have helped them instantly recognize for who he is: a flashy salesman with no substance who pretends he has a real product to sell.

I saw the Beatles play Shea Stadium on my 13th birthday, along with thousands of other New York kids. I also got to see the Ronettes open for them. They made a considerable impression on 13-year old me.

Given the horrors and racism of mass incarceration in US, I can’t join in the fun here. There are a million genuinely funny ways to get a laugh at Trump’s expense. This isn’t just insensitive to prison violence — it’s an obvious bit.

Well, that's certainly the kind of group I want picking the next Democratic presidential nominee.

To say what should be obvious to everyone: People 65 and older have guaranteed health care through Medicare; everyone else is on their own. How about expanding Medicare to cover everyone? We could call it, just a thought, .

You don’t get an answer because they don’t believe their own arguments. They’re just saying whatever they have to say to intimidate and silence those who disagree with them.

Yes, sure, register. Then fight for a system without arcane rules, where human beings are entitled to medical care because they are human.

Not a valid response. She says we shouldn’t damage any potential Democratic NOMINEE - a category that clearly includes Bernie. Not to mention that what the centrists are trying to stop is any examination of the candidates’ positions or records — that is to say, democracy.

There is a non-trivial chance that Bernie Sanders will be the Democratic nominee in 2020. By Neera's (etc) logic, shouldn't any criticism of him -- or his policies -- also be off-limits until then?

I've been watching the centrists dog ., . & Bernie supporters and wondering: If it's a no-no to criticize one Democrat because "we have to beat Trump," why is it ok to attack legions of them -- and other voters too? Maybe Neera can help me with this one.

Remembering Otis Redding, gone 51 years today. On the day before the plane crash in Wisconsin, Otis appeared with The Bar-Kays on the Upbeat television show in Cleveland. Here’s the group performing “Respect” at that taping.
