Below is the link to a New York Times article that I found interesting by Ezra Klein. “Why the Democrats Still have to Appeal to the Center, But Republicans Don’t.” I think it clarifies the challenges our Republic is up against.

Meantime, my brain thirsts for more than the stress and disbelief of daily politics. Reading. I miss it and am going to fit more of it into my life. If I can stay focussed. I’m finishing up Sacred Economics by Charles Eisenstein–it has only taken me two years to read it–and have begun The Wizard and the Prophet by Charles Mann. For fiction, I lean toward the oldies. I recently finished Can You Forgive Her by Anthony Trollope. And now must consider what to read next. Suggestions?
