Thrilling home opener win. I was grinning like a fool during the ring and banner ceremony. I've got a new rally towel for my collection. MAN, I missed basketball season. :)

Basically, what Jeff said.
 
We've now given the plutocrats unlimited power to purchase compliant politicians. In exchange, those politicians have rigged the economy so they get richer and richer. But it's not enough. Now they complain bitterly that Americans dislike them. They really think they're owed not just wealth and power, but love and respect, too.

"Using Best Buy as a showcase for emerging tech trends like home automation, robotics and wearable tech. The stores would have been terrific places to feature experimental but brimming-with-potential products from Kickstarter and Quirky.com, he said."

Now that would actually be interesting. Until then, meh.

So much in here, it's not really excerpt-able. Ta-nehisi Coates is excellent, as usual.

Totally fascinated by Primary Colors.
Chris Cillizza makes an important point about Primary Colors in his write-up that I want to amplify and elaborate on: It's hard not to see the Primary Colors effort as a reaction -- and a smart one -- to what has happened within Republican primaries,...

The deck from my masters thesis research presentation.

My research question: Did the use of the ranked choice voting electoral system in the Minneapolis 2013 municipal elections achieve its purported benefits by functioning as a more inclusive electoral system and by inspiring more inclusive campaigns?

Cool :) so my dad was the person who ran the process to change the NYC school board elections to PR in the early 70s. He was a protege of George Hallett, who was an early proponent of PR. I believe I have a written report and/or his testimony to the NY City Council (or some other body) assessing the first election under PR.

"[H]er departure isn’t the final page of a failed story; it’s a drop-the-mic moment for an official who got the last laugh after some early stumbles."

That's a really generous interpretation. I expect the real truth is somewhere in between there and the "Sebelius Resigns After Troubles With Health Law Website" version (which is not untrue, technically, but implies causation which may not be there).

Just watched the Cadillac ad since y’all are talking about the Ford ad, and… gross. Also, WELL PLAYED, FORD.

See both here.

Yeah, I am a workaholic ("I'm addicted to workahol!") and the caddy ad was still yucky.

I listen to just enough +Planet Money to kind of get this (and I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night…).

The takeaway +The Guardian is presenting is that the Bank of England has conceded that austerity doesn't work.

My chief takeaway is that the vast majority of people don't get how non-consumer banking works, how a central bank works, or how public finance works. Also, we have next to no direct influence on any of it. Also also, the concept of money is socially constructed.
