I can tell how exhausted I’m getting by my reaction to the news from Montana: So now we’ll have outrage from the left, scoffing at pussy reporters in glasses from the right, a lecture on the historical perspective from some egghead, and then the attacker wins the election.
Hope it doesn’t go that way.
I have to hit the phones today, so here’s this: A look at a California couple who believe, deeply, in “chemtrails.” A sympathetic Guardian reporter (like the guy who got roughed up) tries to understand where this brand of crazy comes from. He’s not entirely successful. As in vaccine panic, much is based on what people say they feel is true.
On edit: And here’s a really good, data-packed but still human story about the fading American dream in Michigan, by my colleague Ron.
So, a dustup in Montana, dust in the wind in California, and the CBO score for the tax-cut bill — that should be enough for you guys to talk about.
