Harris Wofford, the 20th Century's Most Serendipitous Man

Harris Wofford, the 20th Century's Most Serendipitous Man
newrepublic.com — He became the first white student to enroll at Howard University Law School since female suffragists had attended in the 1910s-a decision that so upset his grandmother she beseeched him, "You can go there to teach them, to help them, but you can't go and be a student with them."

Rutgers’ Play for the Big Leagues

Rutgers’ Play for the Big Leagues
nymag.com — On the last Thursday of August, Rutgers lost its first football game of the season, falling to Fresno State 52-51 in overtime. But there were two saving graces to this particular Rutgers athletic defeat: It was close, and it occurred on the field of play.

What’s Really Going On Inside Trump’s Political Operation?

What’s Really Going On Inside Trump’s Political Operation?
gq.com — Are they leaking dirt to the Enquirer? Preparing for a riot in Cleveland? Trump political pal Roger Stone on how Team Trump is waging war.

What Was Marco Rubio's Deal, Anyway?

What Was Marco Rubio's Deal, Anyway?
gq.com — Let's dispel with this fiction that the Rubio campaign knew what it was doing "We won! Again! Four-and-oh!" It was early November, and Terry Sullivan, Marco Rubio's campaign manager, was celebrating. His candidate had just wiped the floor with his opponents in a Republican presidential debate-just as he'd done the three previous times the GOP White House wannabes had faced off.

Why Rubio vs. Jeb Will Become the GOP Title Fight

Why Rubio vs. Jeb Will Become the GOP Title Fight
gq.com — Earlier this year, as Jeb Bush hopscotched across the country from one big-dollar fundraiser to the next, his aides gave a name to his strategy. They called it "shock and awe"-the goal being, as they explained to The Wall Street Journal at the time, to essentially cow the rest of the GOP presidential field into submission by hoovering up all the available campaign cash and locking down all of the major donors.

Whoa, Why Is Obama Trying to End This Guy’s Career?

Whoa, Why Is Obama Trying to End This Guy’s Career?
gq.com — Why the most powerful man on the planet is hell-bent on defeating a small-time politician in Chicago. On Tuesday, Democrats in Illinois go to the polls to choose between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders-and while the current president hasn't picked sides in that contest, he is wading into a race much, much further down the ballot.

Clinton’s Campaign Sure Isn’t Sweating Last Night’s Shocking Loss

Clinton’s Campaign Sure Isn’t Sweating Last Night’s Shocking Loss
gq.com — At this point, in a campaign that's on the verge of giving us Republican Party presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, it's hard to imagine anything being a surprise. But Bernie Sanders's win last night in the Michigan primary was truly shocking.

Trump Is Making Your State’s Governor Powerless

Trump Is Making Your State’s Governor Powerless
gq.com — Let's face it: Even if Rick Snyder wanted to offer an endorsement in the GOP presidential primary, no one would take it. The Michigan governor has become the villainous face of the Flint water crisis that, thanks to his administration's tragic incompetence and/or callous indifference, has led to the possible lead poisoning of as many as 8,000 children.

Inside the GOP’s Last-Ditch Effort to Destroy Trump

Inside the GOP’s Last-Ditch Effort to Destroy Trump
gq.com — Last Thursday at the GOP debate, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz finally decided to take the battle to Donald Trump. They've only intensified their attacks since then-with Cruz suggesting the business mogul has mafia ties and Rubio insinuating that the man famous for building skyscrapers is overcompensating for other, uh, shortcomings.

South Carolina's Extreme Politicians

South Carolina's Extreme Politicians
newrepublic.com — South Carolina whackadoodle, an exegesis. It's a Saturday morning in mid-September and a reporter, cameraman, and soundwoman from Japan's NHK TV are in Lexington, South Carolina. The town of 10,000 in the state's Midlands region is hosting its first annual Oktoberfest parade, but the inaugural brats, beers, and oompah bands are not what have lured the trio to Lexington's quaint Main Street.

I feel like Dan Dakich is missing a golden opportunity here. "Donald Trump will shut down the border like I shut down Michael Jordan."

@jessezwick #ThisIs30. Give it 10 more years and then you'll think the Jayhawks' "Sound of Lies" is the most profound album of all time.

I haven't kept up w/ Wilco discussion for, oh, a decade, so please tell me there's now consensus that "A Ghost Is Born" is their masterpiece
