When enough Republicans are willing to bite the bullet and admit that maybe, just maybe, a Democrat might have been right about something, once.

Which is to say, never.
It's looking more likely: "Sources close to Trump say he has ‘early stages of dementia’".

Re: Net Neutrality

Interesting side of net neutrality . The telcos pretty much acknowledge that this is blackmail. Under “net neutrality” rules in the European Union and the US, telecoms companies are forced to treat all data that flow through their networks equally. But even within those markets, it would be feasibl...

I was reading "How NBC ‘Killed’ Ronan Farrow’s Weinstein Exposé" and the thought occurred to me — could the "Jackie" Rolling Stone story collapse and subsequent lawsuits have anything to do with NBC killing the Weinstein story?

The Georgia berry farmer quoted in that one article said he estimates he's lost $750K worth of crop already.
