Morning Reads — August 22nd

Happy Monday, everyone! On a personal note, I discovered it’s possible to burn a microwaveable mac n cheese bowl in less than 30 seconds. The smoke damage is rough. The more you know.

Disdain for Hillary is a powerful thing. And Trump is in some measure breaking it even as he heads toward defeat. “The only way we can lose, in my opinion, I really mean this, Pennsylvania, is if cheating goes on.” Just kidding.
