@TonyStark This NYT piece is cherry-picking results. It mentions a Sister District study that says that postcards to voters had a negative effect. I looked up this study. It actually looked at THREE races, not one. Yes, in one of the studied districts, voters who received postcards had lower turnout. But in one of the others, there was no effect. In the third, voters who received postcards had greater turnout. Sister District discusses in the article what types of races might benefit from postcarding, which is exactly what the other linked article suggests studying further, as it was only a study of one race. Any scientist, be they a social scientist, biologist, chemist, or whatever, will tell you that experiments aren’t much good unless they can be replicated.

I have no argument with the suggestion that retail politics are most important. But if you want people to believe what you say, don’t start by misrepresenting things that are easy for people to look up.

PURE ORGANIC UNMITIGATED RAGE

New single, out now!!

https://eruers.bandcamp.com/track/pure-organic-unmitigated-rage

This single came about due to @lorenlepton [singer/songwriter/musician] experiencing a ridiculous amount of abuse, harassment & other such awful things of a physical, verbal & sexual nature over the past 2 months. They have had abuse for most of their life, but recently it has been overboard.
So they felt they needed to get it off of their chest & let rip.
So we did!!

EMIT, the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation instrument, shared its first view of Earth after being installed outside of the @Space_Station. The milestone, called "first light," happened on July 27 as the station passed over Western Australia. go.nasa.gov/3JgIkeM pic.twitter.com/B5ATyMVqhc twitter.com/NASAJPL/status/155

Republicans are getting rightfully panned for voting against covering veteran healthcare from being exposed to burn pits in the Iraq War (if we had universal healthcare it of course would be a nonissue in 1st place), but why does George W. Bush get a free pass for the burn pits in the first place?
