This is from earlier in the year, but fascinating and well worth reading.
 
Long read from @jamesfallows in the Atlantic on how smaller cities across the US are reinventing themselves https://goo.gl/4Blk2w

Most Americans believe the country is going to hell. They’re wrong. What a three-year journey by single-engine plane reveals about reinvention and renewal—and how the Second Gilded Age might end.

When you hate women, you hate them all the time.
In less time than a woman has to wait to have an abortion after seeing a doctor in Ohio, Republicans rammed through a surprise bill that is one of the most extreme in the nation, banning abortions as soon as a heartbeat is detected, which can happen at...

This is what is happening all over the U.S. The Republicans claim massive voter fraud makes laws restricting voting more necessary. But when anyone looks too closely at elections the Republicans won, suddenly there is no fraud at all and the elections were perfectly honest and free of fraud. The bottom line is that Republicans cannot prevail if they don't rig the elections, and they know it. And getting rid of voters they don't like is the key.

Story
Tagline
Project manager and Linux enthusiast
Introduction
After managing to avoid being sent to Vietnam, I somehow got connected with some political folks in the 1970s, and worked on a few campaigns. It was fun, but more important was that it got me interested in Economics. in 1979 I married the most wonderful woman in the world. Nothing else even comes close. In 1981 I started a doctoral program in Economics at the University of Michigan. I then taught for a few years at Concordia University, and wandered into computers. Eventually this got me into Project Management. I enjoy my job, and project management seems to suit me. In summer I spend every spare moment in the garden, and in the winter I work on my Web sites. I also sing in the church choir, and love music of most kinds.
