That's a nice comb-over you've got there. Be a shame if something happened to it.

Thanks Nina!

A necessary article; I remember your discussion of the book at a Lucid Zoom meeting! On my list to read!

Thank you for this gem and for that book on T’s women I must read. Guys like that must not rule the world and we can stop them, if we stop playing the prescribed role. It is truly sickening. The positive is that T lives a miserable life of lawsuits, lies, junk food and pretty much fear in the place of love…some reward for all that money slipping through his fingers. He needs to be held accountable, but in truth his very life is a punishment…of course he’d look better in orange.

Nina, brilliantly written, as always. Thank you.

My wife and I have been discussing lately (well, endlessly, but quite a bit lately) the demise of small-town newspapers and other local sources of news, first; and then the consolidation of media among a few major corporations who just happen to be owned by right-wingers. Exhibit A would be Sinclair. Lack of local news leads to people feeling disconnected from their social networks—their community—with the attendant focus on national news which, on its face, isn’t necessarily a bad thing, except when the news feed is from Fox or Sinclair then all these people hear is right-wing propaganda. What could possibly go wrong?

I say this because your reporting and analysis is vital to the public’s understanding of the whole story; the background, history, intersecting threads of people, places, times, and circumstances. Maybe more than many can absorb, but for God’s sake give people a chance to connect the dots!! Most of the MSM (including not just Fox and Sinclair, but dare I say the New York Times) are doing a pretty awful job of it. So, we rely on people like you. Keep up the good work, and I hope more will come around to appreciating what you bring to the public square. Healthy debate is the lifeblood of democracy.

Republicans have been surprisingly cheap to buy for several decades.

Trump’s Leonard Leo Six is indisputably the best court money can buy!

Another brilliantly written piece Nina!!

P01135809 is a giant blood-sucking orange xenomorph! He should have been defenestrated upon birth, saved humanity a lot of unnecessary trouble when put to thought... Cohen was hardly a choir boy, now he plays a righteous tough-guy in media coverage, swinging his cuffed, or gloved fists which is annoying as hell. I’m thoroughly disgusted by the endless parade of peerless in vacuous idiocy, we’ve been forced to deal with since Trumps glissade(hah)down his golden escalator!

Thanks again for your astute writing here!

As Mary Trump would say “Too much but never enough”
