Obituary - A. Daniel Feldman, Intrepid Legal Soldier in the Battles for the #FirstAmendment | Chicago Tribune via @LegacyObits
RIP A. Daniel Feldman

#freespeech #journalism #oldschool
I met him and we talked about his career and our First Amendment lawyering experiences when his granddaughter married my son.

He didn't let on how accomplished he really was.

Every bit as much a gentleman as he is, today, a scholar: I give you LaWreNCe TRIbE
And this leads me to the Coleman Unified Political Field theory: that the Left's entire appeal now is premised on the appeal to (purported) authority.

Forget substance. Trust (our now wholly-owned) institutions and brands. The FBI. The judiciary. Carl Bernstein. The AP. Etc.
None of these great institutions - associated with stability, fundamentally conservative values - these legacies of supposed trustworthiness - would lead us astray!

Not the Times. Not the CIA. Not the Bushes. Not Science.

We (the Left) literally occupied the Flag. Now, salute!

In which I foolishly entertain a total stranger in my DM's and am nonetheless found wanting for failing sufficiently to distance myself from ultra-rightists like @Cernovich and @SethAMandel: 1 of 2
Part 2: DM stands for "demented meltdown"
If my reputation is "taking a bashing" from people with that level of reasoning ability, it's the best thing that ever happened to me.

Just ate in a pizza shop that I've been coming to for at least 30 years.

It starts to add up. The years, and the pizza.
To clarify: I didn't come here every day for 30 years. They're closed on Saturdays.
Every observant Jewish community that reaches a critical mass sufficient to have a restaurant has a kosher pizza shop. That's your default.

And the first one is always named "Jerusalem," for what other name evokes strictly meatless tomato pies? Never not.

I don't think you personally have to have working class cred to have an opinion about work. But it sure helps in that department if you've ever had to wear steel-toed shoes to do your job.
Also not for nothing if you've ever lugged cartons of tube socks to a flea market on the weekend to help your parents pay for your college education.

Three for $2.75. *Like the sign says* (damn it)
Working the counter at Carvel was much more fun but it only paid minimum wage. I still miss that job.

Average guy explains lack of personality of famously popular and effectual person he's never met for us
Hilarious. Before he became the GOP nominee for POTUS, Trump was known as a louche reality TV star, relentless self-promoter and entrepreneur of various degrees of success who, still, had undeniably had been a significant real estate developer. In other words, a personality.
But it's utterly unremarkable (except by strange people such as myself) for an utterly unremarkable guy on Twitter to just assert, regarding an historic figure with such exceptional achievements in social space, that he has "no tangible relationship to human nature."

The problem is there's #noaccountability.

Not for prosecutors.
Not for law enforcement.
Not for *anyone in government.*

Knowing this, why would we expect better outcomes?

And this is what makes Never Trumpers so contemptible.

They're not only seeking to tolerate #noaccountability. They live it.
