Just Like in a Banana Republic What we saw last Wednesday was indeed a coup attempt. It was poorly planned and poorly executed. But it was a coup attempt. It likely won't be the last. We need to be ready for the next event.

Was the Decision to Let Manafort Go Home Political? The entire system is broken. The misguided "get tough on crime" attitude in Washington has made us a prison state unlike any other in the world. As Americans, we like to think that we're (usually) led by the best and brightest. Certainly the best and brightest can come up with a justice system where there's some actual "justice."
