This is quite a powerful statement.

The right to vote is a fundamental part of citizenship. I don't even agree with denying the vote to convicts serving prison sentences. But to continue to deny the vote to citizens who have served their time is unconscionable.

But no, Terry McAuliffe is signing 200,000 clemency grants.

That's just pretty damned awesome.

So, they're struggling a bit; they closed the back half of the motel. Here's some economic damage from climate change.

This is what the Democratic Platform Committee looks like when it's considering a climate change plank.

So, the interesting thing here is that Pittsburgh City and it's neighbors are buying 25% carbon-free power. That's a huge step forward, done with little fanfare.

All eyes were on the real-time price graph projected before the large conference table in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. A group of local officials were crowded around. As the online bids trickled in — the best offers from retail suppliers of electricity — the officials saw the graph begin to form what auctioneers call a “hockey stick” because of its sharp drop at the beginning and slow decline thereafter.

So, the forces of rationality seem to have had some success in improving the Democratic platform in the#climatechange area.

Tasty food, comfortable place, but not too much in the way of vegetarian options.

World's best elevators, spectacular lobby. And, best of all, they provide little envelopes so the cleaning staff can beg for tips. It would be nicer if Marriott paid them a living wage.
