Camera Ready? dressing for Zoom

If you’re like most working Americans, you’ve spent a lot of time the past few months on Zoom or other video conference calls. I know I have. And while I spend most of my workdays in sweats and a T-shirt, that won’t do for a Zoom call. Going without makeup doesn’t cut it either (at least not for me) on Zoom days. Apparently I’m not alone—The New York Times just published an article about people and their “Zoom shirts”. What’s a Zoom shirt? The Times defines it as “a top, typically kept on the ba...

"Both The Washington Post and The New York Times have front-page articles touting Chief Justice John Roberts as the new 'swing vote.'"

That's a post of mine from 2 years ago... in case you want to act surprised at the Roberts vote in yesterday's abortion case.Back then, I said:The center position is so powerful. Having seen the attention and (faux) adulation given to Justice Kennedy over the years, the Justices must be eyeing the vacancy. Some new person will get Kennedy's seat, but he is likely to be a staunch conservative like Gorsuch. The real vacancy we're seeing is in the "swing vote" position, and any Justice could feel p...
