Mommy, This Is Why the Chicago Tribune Can't Have Friends (Among Decent People)

So I was reading through an article in the Chicago Tribune titled "Chicago's AirBnB Home-sharing Rules Are 'Draconian,' Lawsuit Says" and I was wondering who in the world would be on the side of AirBnB -- who would be arguing, as the article relates, that restrictions on AirBnB are both "unconstitutional and punish responsible homeowners". Then I got to this sentence:

"Liberty Justice Center, a Chicago-based nonprofit litigation center representing the plaintiffs in the case, teamed up with a Phoenix-based think tank called the Goldwater Institute on the suit in hopes of blocking the regulations...."

It's the Turn-out Stupid

Nov
20

Enough with the crazy-talk. Clinton faced an extremely common problem after eight years of incombency, namely lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Dems:

In Wisconsin, overall turnout was lower than in the 2012 presidential election. Trump actually was a few hundred votes shy of 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney's total in the state, but Clinton was around 240,000 votes short of Obama's 2012 tally. She ended up around 24,000 votes behind Trump in the state.

Fear of a Donald Planet

Wow, I didn't expect this. In the course of just two days, two pretty well established media entities not especially known for political views, namely Scientific American and Wired Magazine, just came out and endorsed Hillary. Amazing.
