Yeah, but in defense of the AUMF, who could have predicted that the US invading Afghanistan would lead to a military superpower being sucked into an unwinnable quagmire that drags on for decades?

I’m also keenly aware of the division between the Times’s opinion desk and newsroom; which is why I will take great pains to never read the latter or allow my colleagues’ work to alter my opinions or worldview in any way.

We need to start a cultural push. Think anti-smoking ads, but with stats pertaining to the public health threat of guns.

I was “a little jumpy” when I came back from Afghanistan as a news reporter myself and I’ve never seen my own feelings expressed in so few words. I couldn’t go back to my desk next to the huge windows that overlooked a parking lot because you know what that flying glass will do to me? Well, let me tell you EXACTLY.

I had a similar experience myself two years ago in Penn Station, in April 2017. It was a Friday evening, and the trains to Jersey were backed up, so there were more people in the station than usual. I was just finished grabbing a slice near the Krispy Kreme when I see a mass of panicked people scrambling and screaming

This is the new normal. Those who have the power to do something do not care. This is what they want.

Those who sympathize with the white nationalist ideology but who deplore the violence should work closely with law enforcement to see that fellow travelers who may be prone to violence do not have access to firearms like semiautomatic assault-style weapons that are massively destructive.

I love that the ads I’m seeing on this page are for Truly

The only people who drink White Claw in my area are hipsters, yuppies, and middle-aged parents extolling the virtues of the beverage being “healthier than beer.”

In short, groups of people already known for offering unsolicited advice to others in inappropriate settings (such as at my favorite sports bar), who now WILL

Timothy Olyphant would be the only reason I’d watch! He wouldn’t even have to talk — just stand there and smile.

In Seattle, summer has been canceled due to lack of interest. It’s 63* at my house right now.

4:27 PM

Now imagine it with 40% more humidity. Our current condition in the South, your future in the Northeast according to climate scientists and this map which I believe I found on Earther. Counterintuitively the already hot places only get marginally warmer while the cooler climates experience much more significant change.

4:22 PM

There’s already a writer who is a moose, for God’s sake. What more does the commentariat want?

3:50 PM

Stay safe people. Because of some medical nonsense I’m hiding in a basement until the temperatures get a little cooler. Especially if you’re younger it’s easy to dismiss but heat can really mess with you. Before I got sick I worked on pools, and I worked some days that were definitely not safe for outdoor workers (my

The strike in, tight shoulders, and the fact that he needed an ENTIRE BAND to back him up probably says he doesn’t practice much these days. Bagpipes are not a “put it away for months at a time and pull it out and think it’ll be okay” type of instrument. Plus, I’d bet money that his drones were plugged and his reed
