Why there’s no post today


Apologies for that, but I—like much of the rest of the country—was transfixed by Dr. Christine Blaisey Ford’s testimony yesterday, and couldn’t quite get any work done. She was so inspiring and brave, and the other guy just so damn awful— everything you wouldn’t want in a Supreme Court justice. But I’m curious to know how you feel about all of this: will Kavanaugh go down? And—if so—will our president replace him with somebody even worse?

Should we have another week of requests?


I’m in the mood. Bring me your best.

Right now I’m deep into the second season of Claws, a TNT dramedy executive-produced by the ever-cool Rashida Jones about the (often criminal) goings-on at a Palmetto, Florida nail salon. It is the perfect kind of trashy-but-still-smart TV that summer demands, and I will be sad when it’s over. Which leads me to my question: what are you watching and loving?
