1. A couple of people sent me @meghan_daum's latest (h/t @kittypurrzog). It's a 28 minute read but I finally got through it and although I haven't been through a divorce in the past few years, so much of what she wrote is familiar.

1. I attended a panel a few years ago that I found out when I arrived was “closed to media”. I was there in my capacity as a blogger and as a community member. I had actually declined a spot on the panel in part so I could cover it.…

3. Testimony of Dr. Allison Stanger (Professor of International Politics and Economics, @Middlebury) before the House Oversight Committee @ 28:38.……
