Get a new sponsor

Seriously? The best you can do for sponsorship is flogging dead meat???!!! Call me a veggie-snowflake but it’s just appallingly gross. I expect better, you can do better, tramp is gross enough, why add to it??? Sponsor Fail.

Just what I needed

I’ll always be grateful to Jacob weisberg for talking me through the early days of the Trump era, and Virginia has stepped in ably. Sober but light and smart and wit cracking, it was just what I needed, and still need. It always seems ahead of the news cycle and delivers that this-is-not-ok perspective that traditional news can’t. Hey, Slate pods, let’s hear more of weisberg now and then!
