sorry for slow blogging. it's partly because i'm writing quite a bit for splice today and have finally acclimated to twitter (@crispinsartwell). so, i should have a debate piece tomorrow morning in splice, and i may tweet it some live as well.
twitter highlights: i am concerned about my likability numbers. and i don't think that colin powell's use of 'dicking' to mean 'fucking' or 'balling' is idiomatic. it's symptomatic of the terrible decline in our public discourse.

i live in south-central pa; it would be incomprehensible for someone to be for clinton out here; it's just assumed as a bottom-line obvious shared conversational assumption that you hatehate hillary. there ain't a clinton sign for twenty miles in any direction. a couple little gary johnson things have bloomed, though.
