Lengthy look at the Steelers coach. (Nothing drives journalists as crazy as someone who doesn't want to talk to them.)
Game 4 against Tampa was bad. How bad? This bad:
When the Washington Capitals lost Game 4 to Tampa Bay on Thursday night, nobody in the crowd booed. Not a one that I could hear, devastating as that loss was. As they poured up aisles to the exits, Capitals fans wore similar red garb and uniform expressions, too — not resignation, not dejection, not anything really. They didn’t even look upset or displeased. They might as well have been walking out of a revival of “Romeo and Juliet,” where the story ended just as they expected, as it always does: Everybody you love dies.
But after wins in games 6 and 7, the dream lives on! Starting Monday night, go Caps!
"Being famous and broke is a shitty combination." If this is even half true, it's an amazing story.

According to research, Gen Z breaks the mold of a gradual move toward leftism and seems to be surprisingly conservative. As a member of Gen Z (born 1998), I can attest that this is true.
Not completely convincing, but more so than I would have expected.

I think you're always going to have tension in the Middle East when there's people who want to kill the Jews and Jews who don't want to be killed and neither side is willing to compromise.

I'm not completely convinced. I always think that we should give the points and bet on Big Al. But, as noted here several times, quantum physics is as weird as weird gets.
Not something you see every day.
But the most dramatic negative effect of metric fixation is its propensity to incentivise gaming: that is, encouraging professionals to maximise the metrics in ways that are at odds with the larger purpose of the organisation.
This is something both political parties should work together to fix.
Sound like at least a few other states should try this.
This has got to be embarrassing.
Funny, they aren't, seemingly, miserable, deplorable bigots, either.
Do you want to understand what the deal is with the Clinton campaign, in league with the Deep State . . .
. . . planting a spy in the Trump campaign is all about, but you don't want to spend a huge amount of time on it? I recommend these two pieces:
Andrew McCarthy, NRO: "In Politicized Justice, Desperate Times Call for Disparate Measures".
(Note that the second one anticipates what may well be the Left's storyline: It was a Nixon/Reagan guy who did it! Don't blame us! And payback is a bitch!)
Totalitarians lie a lot. Who knew?
Wow: this should embarrass McKinsey. I recommend more economics for their employees.
Awwwww . . . another Leftie narrative goes down.
Not counting dopey administrators and regulations, they aren't.

I give thanks, again, for living in the U.S.
Not too complicated.
After Rivers left at the end of June 2013, the Celtics had to quickly assemble a roster of viable replacements. But one candidate emerged as an obvious frontrunner from the beginning.
“Danny put together a list,” Pagliuca said. “The first person on the list was Brad Stevens, and the second person on the list was Brad Stevens, and the third person on the list was Brad Stevens. There wasn’t really much beyond Brad Stevens.”
