    This morning's Twitter chatter: yet another "Uber, but for..." gets funded. This time, for making the house cleaning market "more efficient" by re-inserting the cash-skimming middleman. (But it might not be working out all that well.) Greg Dworkin reminds us…

    4 September 2014, 1:40 pm by: David Waldman

    Greg Dworkin notes the odd disparity in when the traditional media finds electoral questions "too close to call," and when it does not. WaPo explains its entirely routine (though somewhat silly) shift in Senate modeling. Big changes in KS-SEN. Mike Rogers…

    20 August 2014, 12:58 pm by: David Waldman

    Another day of protest in Ferguson gives us cause to compare, once again, the kid glove treatment open carry protesters get from cops. Is it the cameras? Because cameras don't solve everything.  Top Missouri Republican finds Ferguson voter registration drive…

    14 August 2014, 1:33 pm by: David Waldman

    Greg Dworkin's back, but it's all about Ferguson, police militarization and political theory today. Reporters are getting arrested. Once (presumably, generously) cautious libertarians are finally beginning to issue statements. And we awaited the same from MO's…

  • Kagro in the Morning - August 11, 2014

    11 August 2014, 1:00 pm by: David Waldman

    Gotta discuss the unrest in Ferguson, but the only part of it that's even close to being in my wheelhouse is the contrast between how police approach First Amendment protests versus Second Amendment ones. Which brings us back to the Ohio WalMart shooting,…

  • Kagro in the Morning - August 6, 2014

    6 August 2014, 1:29 pm by: David Waldman

    A 10th accidental child shooting in August here in the U.S. And they've got similar problems in South Africa. So similar, in fact, that they've got a street gang called the "Americans." The My Parents Open Carry flap reminds me of the real life story of open…
  • Kagro in the Morning - August 5, 2014

    5 August 2014, 2:02 pm by: David Waldman

    The 5-year-old mayor of Dorset, MN is ousted. (Be honest, you thought I was going to say he was accidentally shot, didn't you?) Politico also notes the gun rental suicide epidemic. There is a real book called My Parents Open Carry and The Onion didn't write…
