Also, "Liz Warren can still pull the D" isn't exactly the worst campaign slogan.

If anything, it'll make her more popular with Republican men, especially in the Senate.

You can't tell me that Mitch McConnell isn't into financial domination.

2 dead and a graveyard hand-grenaded on an attack outside a synagogue in Halle, Germany. One suspect is in custody at this time, but other(s) are believed to be on the run.

No word on the motivations of the suspects, but it is Yom Kippur and one of the gunmen appeared to be dressed up in some kind of German military uniform. So...

I haven't seen it, but there's a 35 minute video of one of the Halle attackers where he rants about Jews being the source of all the world's evils just before carrying out the attack. Both SITE Intel and Spiegel are reporting the same thing, and while the former's ethics are often suspect, their information is always very credible.

I have said a million times, climate change isn't an event, it's a process.  There is no magic date.  Here is further proof.

The committee’s top Republican, Sam Graves of Missouri, said he wasn’t absolving Boeing of mistakes but suggested that foreign pilots were partly to blame.

Graves noted the safety record of U.S. aviation — no fatal crashes since 2009 — and a preliminary report on the second Max crash, which revealed that the Ethiopian Airlines pilots were flying so fast it might have hindered their ability to overcome an MCAS malfunction.

“I guess we’re going to have to start building airplanes to the lowest common denominator ... if we’re going to export” planes, Graves said.

I told everyone the problem is worse and more widespread than it looked.

MONTREAL (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have been unwittingly exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water, with contamination in several cities consistently higher than they ever were in Flint, Michigan, according to an investigation that tested drinking water in hundreds of homes and reviewed thousands more previously undisclosed results.

Residents in some homes in Montreal, a cosmopolitan city an hour north of the U.S.-Canada border, and Regina, in the flat western prairies, are among those drinking and cooking with tap water with lead levels that exceed Canada’s federal guidelines. The investigation found some schools and daycares had lead levels so high that researchers noted it could impact children’s health. Exacerbating the problem, many water providers aren’t testing at all.

I’ve just started uncritically believing whatever you say on stuff like that (public infrastructure). The disappointment is greatly diminished that way.

I mean, Burns, Cain, Faust and Roger (sorry if im missing someone) are good and reliable benchmarks for information, but we always need to rely on ourselves ultimately if its a topic we really care about.

Cain and Roger have the kind of track record that comes only from Holy Knowledge, and so I never doubt them. (Also they probably have put my entire life span into research of their respective fields, and I’m just not going to beat that. It’s the same thing as “I read about Quantum Physics on Wikipedia and now I can argue with the experts.”)

But I do my own research on a lot of things.
