Heather Cox Richardson writes about America's remarkable jury system: Today, twelve ordinary Americans did what Republican senators refused to do. They protected the rule of law and held Trump accountable for his attempt to rig an election. Republicans would rather parrot Trump's claims of a witch hunt, and defend a convicted felon, than admit they were wrong. What a sad state of delusion. read more

This piece make a point that much of the electorate has a significant disconnect from reality. And it's not just Republicans. FTA:

One of the remarkable things about the 2024 presidential election is that for the first time since 1912 voters will have a choice between presidents who served back-to-back in the immediately preceding eight years. It offers them a chance to directly compare their experiences during two four-year periods under the leadership of two old and universally known politicians. No matter what you think of Donald Trump, there is zero doubt that two events during his presidency will forever leap off the pages of history books and dwarf anything else that happened: the outbreak of a pandemic that killed over a million Americans and a mob attack on the U.S. Capitol aimed at preventing Joe Biden's confirmation as president-elect.

Rather than allow tensions to fester and escalate, some college administrations agreed to"gasp"meet with students and hear them out. Some colleges have ongoing discussions and negotiations, while others have reached agreements and ended the encampments." read more

Matt Lewis: It's been years since I was involved in a good old-fashioned Twitter (X) spat. So imagine my surprise when I became embroiled in one on Holy Wednesday. This wasn't just some rando troll, either. My interlocutor was none other than Richard Grenell, former ambassador to Germany and former acting director of the United States National Intelligence -- a man that Donald Trump, Jr. calls a "top contender for secretary of state" in a second Trump administration. The impetus for his ire was a video of me interviewing The Atlantic's Tom Nichols, over which I tweeted the following words: "It's a GREAT time to be alive. So why are so many Americans depressed and convinced that things have never been worse ?!?" read more
