Good God. “It's not just the binary (did Biden win or lose a state) that is increasingly predictive of vaccination rates, but how much Biden won the state by…. the correlation is +0.85 between Biden's 2020 margin in a state and the adult vaccination rate in a state.” https://t.co/6SSlbrNMcP

The real measure of Japan as an industrial power in WW2 wasn't it's battleships, so much as it's lack of bulldozers. A single field in England in the summer of 1944 held more Allied earthmoving bulldozer capability than the Japanese built from 1937 - 1945. /End https://t.co/eGPF2vA9OG

@kairyssdal It’s because Navy ships don’t really say “US Navy” on the side, isn’t it?

If I were a media reporter, I would be working on a feature about how much major media outlets are spending for the privilege of a minimum of press access at the G7. Like, who does the cost-benefit analysis on that?

China just finished 435km of railway line, through Himalayas half under tunnels, at altitudes close to Everest base camp (5000m), speeds up to 163kph as part of its infrastructure incorporation of Tibet. Now, what was that about the Jobs Plan and Amtrak? https://t.co/jy4WsCsVTA https://t.co/xZjOT3W1yv

Was talking tonight about how @NPR often gets erased. For example : @NPR won its first Pulitzer and yet no mention … @MorningEdition and @npratc have massive audiences - more than most cable and many newspapers. Just saying. https://t.co/XzTh4s3hUq

The most stressful part about a radio interview is when they want to do a sound check and ask me to say "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers." I have never in my life said that tongue twister correctly
