Re: Vermont US Senate 2018; Primary August 14

Good reason to hate Sanders. He cannot have both the support of organized Democrats and the latitude of an independent.

Re: 2018 Connecticut Governor; Primary August 14

Dannell Malloy was not a bad Governor for Connecticut, but he certainly is unpopular. That is partly because he is a poor communicator. He was a technocrat Governor, and much of his administration was technocrat as well.

There may be a cautionary tale for Democrats here.

Re: Stolen plane in Seattleght have have been to other BYC residents.

I remember the lights of Aif Force jets over NYC as I returned home from Denver in September 2001 on my way to BDL. This was a comfort, as I think it might have been to other NYC-area residents. The fire still burned. The CT governor had scrambled CT Air National Guard jets over the Millstone nuclea...

Re: Stolen plane in Seattle

What is needed for Seattle? IMO, Air support from PDX does not suffice. It is not as if American aircraft of the world’s skies are made there in Portland.

Who and when decided this?

Unemployment benefits were never intended for striking workers. Unions should cover that. This hurts unions in the end.

Re: Pedestrian bridge collapse at Florida International University FIU Miami

An ideological commitment to Accejerated Bridge Cinstructiion coupled with low safety standards explains why the street was not closed ABC also explains the silence from thst part of the FIU community. It failed.

FIU was committed to Accelerated Bridge Construction. It may have forgotten a simple rule: universities do not kill people. Even if there is good theoretical reason to think you are not doing so. Caution rules. FIU seems to have missed that.

Re: What are you reading lately?

I love the historical fiction of Laura Joh Rowland, set in Japan’s medieval period of rule by the Tokugawa dictators. She has a good character in Sano-san. Much of it is not historical; some is. The villains are real.
