Superspreaders of Asininity

I read somewhere—Field and Stream, Juggs, I can’t quite remember—that Winston Churchill had a rule: Always resist the temptation to say, “I told you so,” but if you have to, do it only if you can prove you said it before, preferably in writing—or perhaps in a podcast. Man, that guy was prescient.

​If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that I’m no Winston Churchill. So I don’t have to resist the temptation too forcefully. But I will try to follow the second part of his advice and stick to stuff I’ve been a broken record about.

​A new nationwide poll of Hispanics finds—yet again—that “Latinx” is a very dumb term. From Politico:
