Re: “The Trolley Stop Market

Had a great Saturday morning breakfast here. Fresh home-made bread/toast, real hash browns, fresh veggies in my omelet. We'll be back.

Re: “Good Morning, America. How Are You?

The Dems flipped 35 House seats (and counting), the most since 1974, not to mention seven new governorships and more than 300 state-level legislative seats. That's pretty wave-ish, given that the Senate math was stacked against them. They also won the overall popular vote by 7 percentage points. I'll take it.

Re: “Blow Up the Vote!

Is everyone under 40 a millennial? I didn't even use that phrase. And I addressed the concerns about the youth vote being depressed by poverty and lack of education. But, as I also pointed out, most people under 40 aren't kids. Tens of thousands of educated people people in their 20s and 30s don't and didn't vote. It has nothing to do with some mythical, media-created generational attitude, i.e. "millennials" or "GenX" or whatever. It's apathy.

Re: “Faith-based Democracy

Nope, nope, and nope. Receipts/paper ballots are standard in many states. A paper trail is the only proof a voter has that his or her vote was cast properly.

Re: “Welcome to It City

Actually, Fitz, I can name-check several young lawyers with kids in Peabody Elementary and Idlewild Elementary. But your other points are on target.
