In the News

Here is some stuff in the news today...

[Content Note: Bombing; stabbing; injury; death] This is about as good (by which I mean as non-alarmist and non-presumptuous) an article as you'll find offering details on the spate of attacks in the NY-NJ area over the weekend. (Originally, it also contained details about the incident in Minnesota; then it didn't; then some information was back. The story keeps getting updated at the link.)

[CN: Bombs; guns; incitement] Meanwhile, without a trace of damn irony, Donald Trump says that people who incite violence "should be arrested immediately."

[CN: Privilege] Do you have someone in your life who keeps trying to tell you how awesome Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is? Well, here is a handy primer to show them why you disagree!

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton writes: "Here's What Millennials Have Taught Me." I love the opening line: "We hear a lot of things about the millennial generation. But too often, the people who are busy trying to define you are the ones who have spent the least time listening to you."

This this this: "This is why I get so angry when you insult Hillary Clinton." Hell yes.

[CN: Harassment] "This Fifth Grade Girl Should Teach a Class on Boundaries." Accurate. But more importantly: The boy to whom she was obliged to write that list of rules should get a lesson on boundaries.
