Still suffering a bit of jet lag from my trip to San Diego in support of my book, Pizza for Good. We raised nearly $2,000 for San Diego Humane Society, and not all donations have been locked in. I’ll do a full recap on the book blog, too, over the weekend.
Vol. 72 will be a bit more abbreviated than normal, but watch for it tomorrow or at the latest Saturday.
Meantime here are some tweets to keep you tantalized:
The Mercer family funds far-right hate sites like Breitbart. Mercer's hedge fund makes millions from investors like @Columbia & @michiganstateu. Tell them to divest and stop funding hate: https://t.co/xHRGDjnEMM

Maybe one of the ways we dissuade shitty people from entering politics is, when they fuck over the entire country & then resign, we shun them instead of inviting them on awards shows & making them Visiting Fellows. https://t.co/8HeGoIJLrT

and the best tweet I’ve received all year:
I can vouch for this. @bywillpollock thinks exactly like a Yale Law professor.

I’m following many stories, but the one I’m chewing on most is how Trump is in violation of Article II of the U.S. Constitution—and nobody’s doing anything about it.
More to come.
