What I didn't read while preparing for Monday's demo Friday, 12 August 2016 16:53:43 CDT David-Braverman Chicago, General, Politics, Travel (0) Sometimes, when I'm really busy, I click on articles I want to read. Right now I have a lot tabs open: Business Insider cites a (dubious) study that says smart people are more likely to stay up late and take illegal drugs. The Washington Post thinks airline frequent-flyer programs are about to get regulated. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that O'Hare runway 9C/27C, which began construction this week and will open in 2020, is a tremendous win for the mayor. Josh Marshall does the math and shows that, with current polls, Hillary Clinton is likely to win states totaling 273 electoral votes by more than 10%. That's a hell of a landslide. James Fallows posts his 75th (!) Trump Time Capsule, this one about how Trump doesn't understand the 6th Amendment. Nuclear security expert Bruce Blair outlines scenarios in which you really don't want Donald Trump's finger on the button. And Mother Jones, on the same topic, points out "the stupidest thing ever said in presidential politics." So, altogether, not entirely about the election.
