After being laid off from @NJAdvanceMedia after winning several major journalism awards, I had a lot of offers to go programs and podcasts to talk about the state of local reporting. Here's one of them, to air this weekend.
@CoryBooker @AlisonMalee I've had similar experiences of stranger kindness, here and abroad. Most people are pretty great, I think. The haters are just louder. Tough balance - calling them out without giving them a megaphone.
The grand jurors, does he mean? twitter.com/HawleyMO/statu…
Jarring how George Soros is being blamed for a grand jury voting to indict. When I was posted in Budapest in the 90s, and Soros was doing things there like creating Central European University, the slam against Soros was that he was "cosmopolitan" - the code-slur for Jew.
Asa Hutchinson, the only potential '24 GOP candidate to say Trump's indictment disqualifies him to be POTUS again, could be playing the long game: usnews.com/news/elections…

Don't mess with the Mouse. While DeSantis was loudly crowing about his reining in of Disney, the cartoon corporation was quietly making sure he lost. Looking weak and outfoxed isn't a good campaign strategy. cnbc.com/2023/03/30/dis…

@ThomasTell Thanks! I've been mis-stating it for years!
Though in fairness, they did just want a block of flats. twitter.com/MilliganSusan/…
...with you color TVs and your Tony Blackman golf clubs. You wouldn't let me be a freemason, would you, you blackballing bastards. Well I wouldn't be a freemason now if you got down on your lousy stinking knees and begged me! (yep, it's one I remember verbatim...) twitter.com/ThomasTell/sta…

If Nixon had been held accountable for his crimes arising out of the Watergate Investigation, no one would now be saying an indictment of Trump is "unprecedented." bit.ly/3lHKHjm

@jamespmanley @MHealthFairview Oh, Jim. I'm so sorry. Even when your parent has lived a long and good life, even when it's somewhat expected, it's still a shock and leaves a hole in your heart. Thinking of you my friend.
Best part was that the simultaneous translator actually talked over him, saying "good afternoon, Canada," when he said "bonjour" twitter.com/mviser/status/…
Rep. Jim McGovern @RepMcGoverna week ago
43 years ago today, Archbishop Óscar Romero was assassinated while celebrating mass in El Salvador.
He’s been a hero of mine since college. He called for peace & uplifted the poor. During these chaotic times, his vision for a more peaceful, just world is an inspiration.

@dellavolpe @SocialSphere I'm not Gen Z, but that sounds like a great idea... how about maybe talking to people - even face to face?
"I like your teams - except the Leafs." - Biden, predictably getting both a standing ovation (from some) and hoots (from others) as he addresses Canadian Parliament. Biden explained it's because the Leafs, (FYI, known in Buffalo as the Laffs), beat Philly Flyers.

Powerful: Ranking Member @RepMcGovern just read an entire book into the record.
“It's called The Life of Rosa Parks by Kathleen Connors. It was pulled from second grade classrooms in the Duval County public school district in Florida. So let's just see what's so objectionable.”
I admit that I saw this thought, Prince Charles went to the Ukrainian border? Yeah, I'll adjust... twitter.com/BBCBreaking/st…
