AP. Crime makes you stupid.
(PDF) Capitol Forum
Leeham News. Important. “[T]he 737 MAX no longer has the docile pitch characteristics of the 737NG at high Angles Of Attack (AOA). This is caused by the larger engine nacelles covering the higher bypass LEAP-1B engines.” Speculating freely: I have often wondered if the civilian aircraft industry is reaching some sort of limit or tipping point: The gigantism of the A380, the Rolls-Royce Trent engines that are so troublesome, the on-going deterioration of outsourced maintenance and atrophy of flying skills…. Perhaps pilots and other airline personnel would care to comment?
The Atlantic (RM). Anti-fungal resistance.
Weather Underground. As OregonCharles remarked of Paradise’s road system: “It’s a trap!”
San Francisco Chronicle
NYT (Re Silc).
Los Angeles Times
Martin Wolf, FT. Quite the headline.
Guardian. Yves: “EU may retrade the draft deal. As I warned….”
Independent. Could be taken as the IMF rushing to May’s rescue, undercutting the (directionally accurate) message.
Los Angeles Times
Haaretz. The headline could be seen as inflammatory, but the article is useful.
World Economic Forum
South China Morning Post. Community leaders called for calm.
Gillian Tett, FT
BBC. Next up, Henry Kissinger!
New Cold War
Foreign Policy. The Atlantic Council appear in paragraph nine.
Democrats in Disarray
Politico. Like that’s a bad thing!
David Sirota, Guardian
FT. In other words, the post-2018 Democrat Party will become more like the party anatomized in Thomas Frank’s Listen, Liberal!, not less. That’s not a bug. It’s a feature.
The Hill. The centrist “Problem Solvers” caucus, an offshoot of (“National Leader: Joe Lieberman”).
Credit Slips. All power to the blogosphere!
Tampa Bay Times. Only of undervotes and overvotes, and not for the Governor’s race.
Modern Healthcare. “In a speech supported by the Hatch Foundation for Civility and Solutions and Intermountain Healthcare in Washington, Azar said Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation officials are looking to move beyond existing efforts to partner with social services groups and try to manage social determinants of health as they see appropriate.”
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, CDC
Imperial Collapse Watch
(PDF) Neta Crawford, Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs (Re Silc). Q: “How ya gonna pay for it?” A: “Print money, like we do for the Pentagon.”
War on the Rocks
ACLU. “CIA doctors decided that waterboarding actually ‘provided periodic relief’ to a prisoner because it was a break from days of standing sleep deprivation.” Somebody should ask Spanberger, et al., about all this.
The Atlantic (FluffytheObeseCat).
New York Magazine
Eric Foner, LRB. “From the mid-1830s to the outbreak of war in 1861, Freeman counts more than seventy violent incidents – duels, fistfights, stabbings – in the halls of Congress and the surrounding streets.” Civility problems, eh?
