Thursday without Warren.

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

Well, she’s still around…just not running for president any more.

In fact, I commend to you an interview she just did (live, tonight, Thursday, and you can catch it again at midnight, and then I suspect it will be chopped up and distibuted a la care throughout our worldwide series of tubes.) It’s a conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in the sun room of her Cambridge house. It’s remarkable in so many facets, but in the last large segment near the end, she extemporaneously explains how all the current bad stuff—starting with the increasingly concentrated wealth of big banks, through the insanity of Donald Trump, and on to how the fragile economic house we’ve built is now being asked to withstand a global pandemic with a leadership team that believes in lies and magic.

It’s not a pretty picture, but it’s a brilliant analysis. I do so like it when smart people run for high office and then are willing to put up with so much crap. So much.

Thanks for your service to us, Senator Warren, past, present, and I sure hope, in the not too distant future.
