How many work related emails do you get over the course of a day?

I get, on average, 500 emails per day.

I'm going to turn on Fox News now.

Will let you know what they're saying.

--Update 1--
1. Yes, they're covering it. Kind of a pleasant surprise.
2. Bemoaning that the investigation has gone far afield. Um, Ken Starr?
3. Parsing out who the candidate was that instructed Cohen. Yeah, it was Jill Stein.

--Update 2--
1. Undocumented suspect arrested in the murder of the Iowa woman. Changing topic.

--Update 3--
1. The left loves Manafort. Respected his style.

--Update 4--
1. If Americans feel financially secure, then they will forget all about this. Using Clinton/Starr as an example.

Summary:

They're walking a narrow line. They are covering it, but they're spinning it at the same time.

Did we get Trump? Have we got him? Is it over??

Just finished watching "The Young Pope". Maybe the best TV show or movie I've seen in years.

Jude Law. Diane Keaton. The direction. Breath-taking.

Best scene:

Great personal speech by Peter Dinklage!!!!

Adorable story about a woman and her beaver



Any of you old NYC club hoppers remember the Limelight nightclub?

It use to be a church. Then it was a notorious nightclub. Then it was a Marketplace. Now? It's a gym.



The New York Limelight originally started as a disco and rock club. In the 1990s, it became a prominent place to hear techno, goth, and industrial music. It earned the media's attention in 1996, when club kid and party promoter Michael Alig was arrested and later convicted for the killing and dismemberment of Angel Melendez, a fellow member of the Club Kids and a drug dealer who frequented the club.[9] The 2003 biopic Party Monster, starring Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green, was based on this event. The Limelight was closed by the police, and subsequently reopened several times during the 1990s. In September 2003, it reopened under the name "Avalon"; however, it closed its doors permanently in 2007.[10] Since May, 2010, the building has been in use as the Limelight Marketplace, but in 2014 it was converted into an outlet of the David Barton Gym chain. On December 21, 2016, this location as well as all four other David Barton Gym locations in NYC abruptly closed their door for business. In June 2017 it Reopened as Limelight Fitness.

Trump's use of "low IQ" individuals when referring to AA is a nod to Charles Murray's "Bell Curve"

The Bell Curve supposedly provides scientific evidence that African Americans are genetically less intelligent than White people based on IO test scores. Published in the mid-90s, the book has seen a resurgence among the alt-right and "outside of the mainstream", so-called academics and intellectuals.

Vox did a whole thing about it back in April:

This is what Congressional Democrats need to run on. Not over-reacting to Nancy Pelosi

Sick and tired of Democrats over-reacting to Republican boogeypeople. Talk about wages and healthcare, not who will be the speaker. Stop falling for the bait and call out the fucking media when they make it an issue.
