The bad news is that an entire wing of our politics will have no use for data, continuing to peddle their toxic mix of tycoon-worship and minority scapegoating. Still, the trend is favorable, and one hopes, inevitable.

    I support a sort of a ‘weak’ version of Socialism, as opposed to the armed rebellion of Communism, which failed so badly in the erstwhile USSR and elsewhere.
