An aide from a rival campaign not affected by impeachment noted that in addition to the obvious downside that candidates would not be able to campaign in the state, it would also make it more difficult for them to get local news coverage. The aide argued that “it gets a lot more important to be on local news in Des Moines or Cedar Rapids rather than being on CNN or MSNBC” in the weeks before the caucus. … [Read more...] about ‘It Hurts’: How the Impeachment Trial Affects Sanders, Warren, and Klobuchar in Iowa

Stairs can be social spaces. The architects of the Metropolitan Museum and the New York Public Library lifted those institutions above Fifth Avenue by means of imposing, processional staircases, but the city’s democratic culture eventually appropriated them as hangouts. Visitors use them to roost and recover. Even in winter there’s always a scattering of hardy types flaunting their endurance by seeing how long they can relax.

“The film’s vicious falsehoods against providers could incite hatred and violence against them, including here in Canada,” she said. “But the film also aims to challenge abortion rights. That’s a non-starter in Canada, where women and transgender people have a Charter right to abortion based on their rights to bodily autonomy and equality.” … [Read more...] about ‘Unplanned’ Opens Strong in Theaters Across Canada, Despite Being Labelled ‘Hate Propaganda’
