  • These tweets present a coherent argument -- that the availability of less efficient but cheaper cars will produce a larger reduction in emissions -- but the White House has not presented any evidence for that claim. Evidence is good. It helps us make better decisions. https://t.co/md7NBF0SZh

  • Seriously though imagine being famous for lying. That’s Spicer’s claim to fame: He lied, a lot, while serving as a government spokesperson. He lied about things that couldn’t possibly be true. Then he lied about lying. And now he’s dressed as a cocktail garnish.

  • A paradox of the current moment in America is that big companies like Walmart may be more concerned than the Republican Party about the wishes of a majority of the population. Link
    Binyamin Appelbaum Tue 17 Sep 2019 00:43

    After recent mass shootings, including one in a Walmart in El Paso, Walmart’s chief executive, Doug McMillon, announced that his company would stop selling ammunition for military-style assault rifles, remove handguns from stores in Alaska — the only Walmarts still carrying them — and ask armed people in open-carry states to stay out of its stores.

    “It’s clear to us that the status quo is unacceptable,” Mr. McMillon said in a statement.

    The leaders of 145 other big American companies, including Levi Strauss, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Bain Capital, published an open letter to the Senate last week pressing for new gun laws, including background checks on all firearms sales and a “red flag” law to keep guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous individuals.

    “Doing nothing about America’s gun violence crisis,” they said, “is simply unacceptable, and it is time to stand with the American public on gun safety.”

    On a wide range of issues, including gun...

    FLEMING-NEON, Ky. — In the pre-dawn hours when all is dark and quiet, Amanda Lucas leaves her house and begins the long drive to her job at a hospital an hour away.

    In years past, it was the men who would empty out of the hollows of Letcher County before sunrise. All day long they would be underground, digging out coal as their fathers and often their grandfathers had done. Ms. Lucas’s husband, Denley, had a job with one of the big mining companies, with good benefits and an income approaching six figures when all the overtime was added. She stayed at home to raise their four children.

    “We had a good life,” she said.

    Then everything changed.

    It has been a hot and mean summer in Letcher County, with a rash of coal mine bankruptcies and layoffs even crueler than the ones that came before. From the barstools at the American Legion post to the parking lot of the unemployment office, there was little debate: The coal business around here is going under. The...
