Supported by ByAlexander Burns Jan. 30, 2019 Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks chief executive contemplating an independent run for president, stated it as a plain matter of fact: For someone with his views — a distinctly white-collar blend of conservative fiscal instincts and liberal social values — there is no suitable political party. That would come as news to the eight or nine Democrats who may seek their party’s presidential nomination on versions of that very platform. They call themselves moderates and problem-solvers, consensus-builders and pragmatists. Monochrome and male, they do not embody social change or hold out the promise of making history. Among them are former mayors, like Michael R. Bloomberg of … [Read more...] about Is There Room in 2020 for a Centrist Democrat? Maybe One or Two.

David Leffler, The Washington Post Published 9:58 am PST, Tuesday, January 22, 2019 Pushed to the brink by mounting debt, compassion fatigue and social media attacks from angry pet owners, veterinarians are committing suicide at rates higher than the general population, often killing themselves with drugs meant for their patients. On a brisk fall evening in Elizabeth City, N.C., Robin Stamey sat in her bed and prepared to take her own life. To her side lay a stack of goodbye letters Stamey had written to her loved ones, including her parents who lived hundreds of miles away.

He was 94. His death, which was announced by his office, came less than eight months after that of his wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush.

But the specter of the field’s ignominious past, which includes support for the American eugenics movement, looms large for many geneticists in light of today’s white identity politics. They also worry about how new tools that are allowing them to home in on the … [Read more...] about Why White Supremacists Are Chugging Milk (and Why Geneticists Are Alarmed)
