Mother Jones:

Roem admits her gender has come up occasionally on the campaign trail, but she says most people who have brought it up have been curious, not hostile, and she’s happy to answer their questions.

It feels like we are experiencing a watershed moment in political engagement and empowerment. I\’m thrilled to see more women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented groups getting involved in politics and taking ownership of their own representation. More like this please.

Reese Roper, writing for the Five Iron Frenzy blog about “To Start a Fire”:

Scott and I used to be the greatest of friends. And do you know what ruined it? Me pushing Jesus on him when he needed me to just be his friend.

Things like this are why Five Iron continues to be my favorite band. I feel like I’ve grown up with them.

Richard Greenfield:

The content originates from Time Warner Cable’s digital center in Denver and is transported only over TWC infrastructure — it never touches the public internet. It is not removing bandwidth from the Internet service that TWC delivers to me, it is a separate pathway — essentially a fast lane that never gets congested… which I think is exactly what was envisioned in the last rulemaking. There is no cost to the consumer.

If Comcast, AT&T, Verizon or any other ISP has the choice between putting their resources into a “separate pathway” to handle big traffic from the likes of Netflix, which they can charge millions of dollars for, and improving the infrastructure to get better bandwidth to individual consumers, who are generally cost conscious, which will they choose?

Everything has a cost.
