ON THIS DAY IN 1929, the stock market crashed; the beginning of the Great Depression. How did we get out of it? We elected a Democrat. When FDR ran for president, he seemed an unlikely savior: a rich dilettante with a funny accent, a withered body, and cigarettes he smoked from a holder. But Roosevelt had a message and a cause: the "forgotten man" — the broken farmer in the West, the apple vendor hawking his wares for a nickel in in Manhattan, the Chicago and St. ...

Upbeat Garden Writing in August? A False Positive!

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne, Through our ongoing letters and because of the few times we’ve hung out, I must admit I have become rather fond of you. Despite having a few lingering concerns caused mainly by your fixation on all things British, I pretty much consider you a friend. Nevertheless, I was surprised by how angry I got when I read in your letter about the woman (who will be from now on referred to as “Clueless Critic Lady”) who had reacted to a recent post on your website by stating t...

Visiting DC Gardens and Memorials in Covid Times

Almost no traffic on Pennsylvania Avenue. I hadn’t been downtown DC since last year, so with glorious September weather upon us, I was determined to go. But I’m not using public transportation unless I absolutely have to, so taking the usual subway right is not an option – until further notice. Then a friend who’d driven downtown for a BLM rally told me how easy it is to pay and reserve a parking spot. Driving is actually faster from my house – just under 30 minutes, off-rush, which barely ex...

Trump hints at stopping “powerful” big tech in latest ‘get out the vote’ tweet

If there was any doubt that yesterday’s flogging of big tech CEOs by Senate republicans was anything other than an electioneering stunt, president Trump has thumped the point home by tweeting a video message to voters in which he bashes “big tech” as (maybe) too powerful but certainly in need of being “spoken to” and (maybe) more. The not-so-subtle suggestion being that a vote for Trump is a vote to break up the likes of Facebook, Google and Twitter . — Donald J...

USC special teams coming together under new coordinator Sean Snyder

If ever there was a year to get creative with how to hone your craft, it’s 2020. Sometimes that means getting chased off of neighborhood fields while working on kicking, as USC’s Chase McGrath did this summer. Other times, it’s Damon Johnson and his father tying a tire to a tree as a target for long snapping. That extends to coaches, too, as USC special teams coordinator Sean Snyder has discovered in training camp. “I’ve been able to challenge myself in creativity, which I haven’t had to do like...

2020 US House Elections: Democrats go on the offense to expand their majority in the House of Representatives

Business Insider Democrats are seeking to expand their majority in the House of Representatives after decisively flipping control of the chamber in the 2018 midterms.  All 435 seats in the chamber are up for grabs. The House is currently composed of 232 Democrats, 197 Republicans, one Libertarian, and five vacancies.  Election analysts say that Republicans have little to no chance of winning back the chamber altogether, with Democrats positioned to gain anywhere from five to 15 seats.

2020 Senate Elections: Democrats are in a high-stakes battle to regain full control of Congress

Business Insider Democrats are making a strong play to win back control of the US Senate, which has been in Republican hands since 2015.  The US Senate is made up of 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats, and two independents that caucus with Democrats, meaning Democrats need to win back four to five seats.  The Senate seats most likely to flip parties are in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Maine, and North Carolina, but seats in Georgia, Iowa, Montana, and more are also very much in play for Democrat...

Republicans are on the verge of a spectacular upside-down achievement

President Trump and congressional Republicans could be headed to a stinging, possibly historic defeat on November 3. With the president down nearly 10 points in national polling averages and looking up at Democratic nominee Joe Biden in every critical battleground state, five incumbent Republican senators trailing their Democratic challengers, another handful tied or barely ahead, and Republicans likely to lose at least a few seats in the House, too, it looks as though the verdict voters hand do...

How a mid-size construction firm used political influence, litigation, and media stunts — and secured $2 billion in Trump border wall contracts

Tommy Fisher appearing on "The Ingraham Angle" in March 2018 as part of a media blitz to promote his wall design. Fox News/YouTube Fisher Sand & Gravel has secured almost $2 billion worth of contracts to build parts of President Donald Trump's planned southern border wall. The company's prototype was publicly rejected in 2018, but after a mix of lobbying, media appearances, and pressure from Trump himself, it got the contracts anyway. Business Insider analysed Fisher's track record, and fo...

13 terrifying books to haunt your dreams as Halloween approaches

When my wife was a child, the author of “The Exorcist,” William Peter Blatty, was invited to dinner at her family’s New England home, which sat across the lane from an old graveyard. You may be imagining this event like the famous poster for the movie based on the book — an unsettling image of a man lingering ominously outside a home — and that would be understandable, but the truth is that Blatty and his wife did not cross her threshold that night. The terrifying idea of the man who made that b...
