We just never want to connect the dots between the Constitution and the threats to our national survival

Delaware Senator Chris Coons has an excellent column in the Washington Post warning us that the presidential election is not the only one we have to worry about in November.  If current polls are trustworthy, we may well know on November 4 who the next president will be because Biden will in fact smash the sociopath.  On the other hand, he points out, we might not know about the control of the Senate for weeks, given that a lot of the votes may turn out to be much closer (especially if, as I pre...

Baltimore suddenly a punching bag in justice-reform debates

When Grits thinks of Baltimore, three things come to mind: 1) soft-shell crabs in the summertime, 2) the musical "Hairspray" ("Good morning, Baltimore!") and 3) "The Wire," which the missus and I binge-watched this year for the first time since it originally aired. But in recent years, the city has also become a conservative punching bag over crime, suffering from high murder rates and an intractably corrupt city bureaucracy seemingly incapable of steering the ship. In recent NY Times op ed, co...
