–As empowering as that story is, a Muslim-American journalist who identifies as liberal published this research on the women’s march on Washington. If it seemed inauthentic that many people coalesced in a grand act of civil disobedience, it may have been. As always, follow the money.…/billionaire-george-soros-has-…/

–Charles Blow from the NY Times opines about Trump and concludes there is a good chance the new president has done something neither Hillary, nor Obama could. Reunited the left. I disagree, but his logic is interesting even if controverted by the demographics of Trump supporters.…/we-are-dissidents-we-are-legio…

–Using pencil and paper to write cursive notes appears to be a rising hipster trend. Most non-working days, I have paper folded in 8ths in my pocket, with a pencil. This blog often grows from it. This is the most affirming trend since I went to that music festival and realized nearly everyone else was wearing Hawaiian shirts with bandanas around their neck, too.…/20170120-why-paper-is-the-real-killer-…

–So you want to be an astronaut? Try living even 48 hours on such a tight, demanding schedule, monitoring all your activity and living on prepacked dehydrated food. Ughhh.…/20170117-how-living-like-an-astronaut-…

–Art Voice had more people pay attention than ever would have otherwise thanks to its choice to publish Carl Paladino’s ill-humor. Tony Farina uses the First Amendment to put it in context.…

–The receivers coach credited with a large portion of Tyreek Hill’s success, David Culley, is joining the Bills as quarterbacks coach. Culley has spent his whole career with Andy Reed.…/kansas-ci…/article128354399.html

–Interesting read about the growing parallels between basketball and NFL passing games. It’s the reason Brady* is still excelling. The game has become more cerebral, with presnap reads and quick ball delivery.…
