"Is that shirt supposed to be funny?" she asked motioning to my satirical "Caucasians" T-shirt. And then she said, "I'll f*cking cut you." This is the part you don't really see in its full glory on the segment.

For half a century beginning with Franklin Roosevelt, there was a direct connection between the problems that afflicted American society and the remedies on offer from our democratic system. High unemployment? The New Deal, the World War II mobilization, and the postwar boom took care of that. Stagnant wages? With unions, growing productivity, minimum wage laws, and other regulation of labor standards -- American real wages tripled. Education? The G.I. bill, massive investment in public universities, community colleges, and later in public elementary and secondary education produced a better educated and more productive population. The exclusion of blacks from the American dream? A mass movement and a revolution in civil rights law made a big down-payment on redeeming the promise of Lincoln. I could go on, but you get the point. In the last century, democratic politics addressed real problems.

Once again there has been a breach of security at the White House, and this one could have been serious.
Why should city planning matter to people who aren't urban designer types? How can you make the case as briefly and simply as possible?
Regardless of what one thinks about J Street's conduct during the war, the promulgation of this line is a threat to any future pragmatic effort to move U.S. policy on Israel-Palestine in a progressive direction in any future that we can see.
