    Memento 2: The U.S. News Media

    Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans.

I hate to come like the Church Lady. But, Jesus, this made me angry. Really angry. To get to school, my kid walks down a little country lane and crosses a pasture along a trail. The trail ends at a busy country road that feeds a couple of rural neighbourhoods. […]
