STOP, LOOK, LISTEN! by Kathy Sherretts
I have been volunteering in an albergue on the Camino De Santiago for the past week. I’ve met several Americans who have been on the road, and disconnected from current events to an enviable degree. One guy pointedly said he didn’t want to know what was going on back in the States. He’ll find out soon enough, I guess. As long as he’s home before Election Day.

Vox: Every time Ford and Kavanaugh dodged a question, in one chart by Alvin Chang.
You can see the graphic below.
Alvin Chang from Vox went "through the transcript of the hearing and noted every single time a question was asked of Ford and Kavanaugh. (...) Then [he] noted every instance in which they answered the question or said they didn’t know the answer — and [he] also noted every time they either refused to answer or gave an answer that didn’t address the question." The results are shown above; blue means answered the question, red means did not answer the question.
