On it’s up to Clinton to win supporters
There’s one key element that you’ve missed… A whole lot of [Bernie] Sanders supporters were #NeverHillary long before we were for #BernieOrJill … Blame whoever you want, but blaming those of us who refuse to vote for a criminal is counter-productive, and stupid …
— Alexias Jump Taylor
That’s all fine and good, but please don’t tell us that withholding a vote from [Hillary] Clinton is not a vote for Trump: That’s simply not true. [Green Party candidate Jill] Stein will lose in every state…

on amp apartments, positively urban
Settling for formulaic anarchitecture is nearly as bad as letting the site sit. This pour-and-bore approach can have all these words thrown at it, but at the end of the day, it’s just the SOS … I am tired of going to endless meetings seeking “input” when not a single suggestion is taken, and we deem this good enough to combat sprawl. It fills a hole … The back looks like Motel 6 . AMP that.

on erica rucker: white america must
Great piece, Erica. The degree of denial that has been going on in this country borders on mass delusion … [A] vocal minority (in this case, conservative white America) uses the explosion of the pressure cooker to lash out in anger. Not to lash out at the circumstances that have been leading to this for generations, but at the result (in this case, police being assassinated) of ignoring this problem. That allows them to go from ignorant bliss, skipping over a response to institutional racism entirely, to a new round of blaming black America in general, and in particular persecuting anyone willing to speak up. I don’t know how to fix this problem that runs so deep, but talking and writing about it is at the very least a good start.

“That’s Entertainment!” | By Keith Welch
Now the last Trump has sounded, and Cleveland breathes a sigh
relieved from being baffled by a hurricane of lies
The circus of the GOP was better than a wreck
of half a dozen locomotives and the movie Shrek
What can a clever Democratic candidate provide
to entertain a nation of the intellectually fried?
Mrs. Clinton has charisma that could cure insomnia
And her husband is a victim of erotomania
No one thinks her VP choices are the very best
unless she gets Beyoncé, no one’s going to be impressed.
