Make It So, America
Given her general election opponent, Hillary Clinton has a historic opportunity to unite a grand, cross-party coalition.

Yes, we used to have a kid carrier, towed behind the bike. +Silvi Gaunt would take the kids to school in it.

this is me a couple of weeks ago playing with a free jazz band I haven't played with since 1975.
One player is in Brooklyn, skyping in

Be forewarned.

The Inexplicable Explained

It turns out the knack for selling “luxury” to people with no concept of value is the same as the one for selling “liberty” to people with no instinct for democracy. The key ingredient, in both salesmanship and demagogy, is authenticity, or the ability to be true to oneself without being the least bit truthful.

+Curtis Wenzel: Absolutely. "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" is getting pretty old, regardless of where on the political spectrum one falls.

Stephen Colbert Reads Ray Bradbury Classic Sci-Fi Story “The Veldt”
American elementary school, but when I do, I usually arrive at listening to a Ray Bradbury story — something about a faraway planet, something about monsoons, I can never remember which one — during read-aloud time.

I used to listen to Selected Shorts on NPR on the way home from work on Saturdays. Made the ride a pleasure. I'll listen to this soon.

Very Interesting

Nate Silver

The combination of this regression analysis with the national polls, however, provides a reasonably persuasive case that Sanders had gained ground on Clinton. The magnitude of the effect is about the same in both cases. According to the regression, Sanders underperformed his retrodiction by an average of 6 percentage points in states through March 1, but has beaten them by an average of 5 percentage points since. That would represent an 11-point net swing to Sanders, closely matching his gain in our national polling average.
We’re not big fans of national polls here at FiveThirtyEight. In the general election, they provide less information than state polls do, especially given that the presidency is determined by the E…

Bernie's "Deep South" Blinders

...the sort of wishful thinking Sanders is engaged in can cut both ways. Yes, Clinton’s lead would be considerably narrower (although she’d still be winning) without delegates from the Deep South. But what if you excluded delegates from caucuses, where Sanders has gained a net of 150 delegates on Clinton? Without those delegates, Sanders couldn’t even maintain the pretense of a competitive race. Not only are most of those caucus states extremely white and therefore poorly representative of Democrats’ national demographics — many of them (such as Idaho and Nebraska) are also quite red. Furthermore, caucuses tend to disenfranchise voters by making it harder to vote. Our demographic modeling suggests that this has hurt Clinton and that Sanders wouldn’t have won by the same enormous margins if those caucus states had held primaries instead.

But overall, the math is pretty simple. Sanders is winning states that are much whiter than the Democratic electorate as a whole, Clinton is winning states that are much blacker than the Democratic electorate as a whole, and Clinton is winning most of those states that are somewhere in the middle, whether they’re in the South (like Virginia) or elsewhere (like Ohio or Nevada). That’s why she’ll probably be the Democratic nominee.

“Secretary Clinton cleaned our clock in the Deep South, no question about it,” Bernie Sanders said during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Brooklyn. “That is the most conservative part of this…
