So, I've been reading this piece in Washington Post today titled "Clinton’s impulse to ‘power through’ with pneumonia set off cascade of problems" by Philip Rucker and Anne Gearan. WaPo has been pro-Clinton all along, but this piece struck me as especially manufactured. Something felt very tacky. The way they described this whole sequence of events sounded off.

Then afternoon Politico explained it all: "Clinton surrogates" were given talking points on how to speak about this thing. If you read WaPo paper it's clear that they simply expanded on each of the points in mundane un-creative way. So it seems they simply became one of the army of Clinton surrogate now. It's quite sad, I was hoping that with Bezos' purchase they'll get back to journalism from political activism. I guess - no hope.

The memo was distributed a day after Hillary Clinton’s campaign officials assured voters that she had no undisclosed medical conditions.

I saw this art work in the subway train in NYC. The sheep are enormous in size. Compare them to the train

Apparently there is no air conditioning in NYC subway. It's like bikram yoga class here.

At least something is better in Washington metro system.

Because of the train derailment on silver line the shuttle buses are running from Arlington to McLean. This is actually better than metro lately. Metro was horrible past two weeks

The store itself is great, spacious. I had an unpleasant encounter with their lumber dept guys. They were clueless. I was looking for an item, and they couldn't find it, then tried to convince me that another item was the that I needed. It was pathetic.
