Till the End of the Day

Sorry about light posting this week. Been busy, blah blah blah. Anyways, here’s some good things you can read elsewhere instead:

Must read: America is not for black people.

Excellent reporting on the intense and brutal gang violence in El Salvador that is pushing families to try anything to escape.

In one day (today), Long Island broke its monthly record for rainfall (while also breaking New York’s daily record set during Hurricane Irene). These massive rainstorms are yet another consequence of climate change, which promises storms with significantly more rain.

Brazilian presidential candidate Eduardo Campos was killed in a plane crash Wednesday.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond refused to stay its opinion striking down Virginia’s ban on same sex marriage, meaning that same-sex couples could begin marrying soon.

As if Fox News weren’t enough (heh), the National Republican Congressional Committee is launching fake news sites that look like legitimate local news sources.

You may have suspected or knew this already, but turns out that New York Times Magazine cover story about how all the youths are libertarians now was in fact a piece of steaming garbage.

I have to agree: a President Hilary Clinton would not have prevented the rise of the Tea Party, (although it’s hard not to lose the racial element of it).

The Federalist rationale for no term limits.

Ayn Rand’s The Devil Wears Prada.

Slate’s David Weigel opens up about his own experience with depression.

The downsides of cheap corn.

You have to admit, the acting in this is a little too real:
