“Left unanswered in all the plot twists: What drove a suburban engineer and his schoolteacher wife to apparently try to sell secrets to a still-unidentified country?” https://t.co/rDiJBAQ9CX

“The accused spy knew stealth was crucial from his work on submarines. He surfaced anyway.” https://t.co/rDiJBAQ9CX

“It was a cancellation. It’s something you dread. The child in you dreads it. The ostracization.” https://t.co/w4IXMPsXMU

“Deep-blue America will have to decide, in a world that’s postpandemic but not post-Covid, whether it wants to become the safety-above-all caricature that deep-red America has made of it” https://t.co/Tz9Rgj9UN1

Overlooked from Monmouth #VAGOV poll: Youngkin now leads — by a point — on the question of which candidate would do a better job on education. Can’t remember the last time a Republican led on the education question. Typically a sizable D advantage.

"There is no question that these controversies will have a negative impact on my scientific career. But I don’t want to live in a country where instead of discussing something difficult we go and silence debate." https://t.co/rQMuXih4JN

"Fraught arguments over speech & academic freedom on campuses have moved as a flood tide into the sciences. Biology, physics, math: All have seen fierce debates over courses, hiring & objectivity, & some on the academic left have silenced who disagree" https://t.co/rQMuXih4JN

“The Senate Majority PAC (D) showed Biden’s approval rating across the Senate battlegrounds at 41 percent, with 52 percent disapproving — numbers that are roughly in line with recent national polls.” https://t.co/vZfoEcB7gR

Netflix will be perfectly fine. The real story here is the decision of news outlets -- especially PBS and NPR -- to treat the absurdly overwrought complaints of a tiny number of people as morally authoritative. They are not. https://t.co/WrWoQBC3Ut

So Bob Huggins is really proposing ruining March Madness ? What a dumb idea. If majors split off and have their own tournament, you gut the fun of people doing brackets + having an interest in every game. That creates billions in revenue and interest. The whole fun of March

Why is the big education fad to declare stuff like intellectual rigor, objectivity, the scientific method problematic or just "white"? Because it's a way to rationalize the failures at many levels of society and governance.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has emerged as one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, with her concerns about the size and funding for Democrats’ social-policy and climate package dictating what the party will be able to pass https://t.co/TZbVogmpWY

Astros ace Lance McCullers is seen as not likely to be able to pitch in the World Series should Houston get there. The good news is his forearm injury is seen as muscular in nature so he should be fine, just not in time for the WS. McCullers had a 0.84 ERA in ALDS. @MLBNetwork

@HotlineJosh Hard to imagine this kind of shot today, with major figures of each party, from all across the political spectrum, celebrating major, bipartisan legislation

Biden just said if you build vehicle charging stations, "communities build up around them." I hope they are actually planning to put them where the communities already exist.

Still probably the best correction ever

@JonahDispatch Biden did not *win* on whatever progressive policies he may have promised. Biden won on the implicit promise of a return to normalcy and decency.

Plugged into DRA and get...2 districts carried by Biden in 2020 and 6 districts carried by Trump, despite Biden winning the state by 0.6 percent, same as last time. CD-3 gets a little worse for Dems on this map but otherwise it's pretty status quo re:partisanship. https://t.co/plDCF9daZr

Biden says his legislation has been called dead since the day it was introduced. “I think we’re going to surprise them. Because I think people are beginning to figure out what is at stake.”

Kanter tends to take on issues that could actually imperil his career which I respect. https://t.co/eKXxS0okIj

The Q I actually heard from some Tribune staffers/alumni was broader: Where were the philanthropists/business community/civic class? Other Tribune Co. papers attracted interest from local buyers—why not in Chicago, where there’s a lot more money? (I’ve heard plenty of theories.)

ADL’s issues with Al-Marayati are a matter of public record and have not changed. https://t.co/vbXTI4Qk1h
