I was struck by this post-primary note of thanks from @marchandsteve, so I'm posting it here. Important unity, important message. This is how you do it. #nhpolitics

The other big surprise. (GOP controlled state gov’t recently passed a law aiming to suppress the college vote. Durham is a college town.)
🚨Crazy high youth and Dem turnout is quickly becoming *the* story of yesterday's primary. This is B A N A N A S level good news for November. 🚨#nhpolitics

Are you even kidding me right now? #NH01 #NHpolitics…
You know who lost tough races in 2010 and 2014 because mid-term voters like Ms. Sullivan couldn't be bothered? Carol Shea-Porter. #NH01 #NHpolitics
Carol's former CoS and campaign chair @NaomiForNH brings some righteous 🔥🔥🔥 to this news:

2016 upended all my previous experience with political analysis, and so I no longer have faith in my election thoughts. So you'd be wise to stop reading this now.

Still, I am having thoughts, specifically about the #NHGov primary, on which I'm not yet decided. #nhpolitics
The Kelly gubernatorial campaign seems the latest iteration of the formula whose previous iterations were the Shaheen and Hassan campaigns. Lots of institutional support, take the pledge, broad themes.

It works!

More accurately: it has worked.
Marchand feels like Cilley in 2012 (disclosure: I worked social media for that). Wonky, specifics, no pledge, willing to take risks, little institutional support (and so fewer resources for field,) etc.

Always wondered why there would be these pointless Bolton PAC ads in NH. I figured he was vain enough to think he was viable to run for POTUS. #fitn
Cool. Let's see what my psychographic profile is, Cambridge Analytica. Not creepy at all, John Bolton. #fitn

File under: a thing we need to re-learn because our compromised president is trying to destroy it.

"Why was NATO founded?"…
NATO "commits the Allies to

democracy, individual liberty & the rule of law,

as well as to peaceful resolution of disputes. Importantly, the treaty sets out the idea of collective attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies."

I’m reading a book about #Shostakovich’s 7th, LENINGRAD: SEIGE & SYMPHONY, and a good portion of the opening chapters concerns Stalin’s myriad purges of his own people.

But this story of life battered by an unyielding autocracy really stands out among the others.
Here are (I presume) the 24 Preludes & Fugues Zaderatsky composed in a frozen logging camp on scraps of telegraph paper.
Most of the horrors in the book are much shorter and go something like:

1) Someone wants a nice apartment, so
2) another is falsely accused of conspiring against the state, and
3) is shot a few days later, then
4) his wife or child is also killed or ruined a little later.
