If the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, we still haven't figured out what to do about all the mediocre guys with guns. They're a problem too, you know.

It's 0.1 percent oligarchs. The other 0.9 percent just think they are.

Sure. It's not a solution for all of higher education's ills. We will still need tuition-free public higher education and other changes. But it rights a wrong, and it helps the economy.

Hideous, but unsurprising. I found it hilarious when Al said, "I just get along with people better." He didn't get along well with me when I said his stereotyping of the left meant that he was a white man trying to render a lot of people of color invisible. In fact, he lost it

Never tweet late at night! Here they are: two other TIME covers that explicitly link Putin to the communists. (One places him in the pose of an iconic Lenin statue.)
