@Notgnnatakeit Afraid I don't know anything about this. It just seems to be part of the massive Trump efforts to discourage absentee voting. The Brennan Center, where I am just a Fellow rather than a day-to-day staffer, has written about the larger topic many times. — PolitiTweet.org

@dcg1114 @kkondik Quayle in 1988 was too late. Bush kept the secret until the second day of the New Orleans convention. Most delegates knew nothing about him other than he was from Indiana and he played a lot of golf. As a result, it was a disastrous rollout. — PolitiTweet.org

@ArgoJournal @fordm @YAppelbaum Thank you for this. But I do think that maybe 2013 (the date of the episode) may be a little late to learn Yosemite Sam's ethnic background, since he has been in show business since 1944. — PolitiTweet.org

@Francis_Lam Not sure that's the cause on the Upper West Side, since most storefronts are on the ground floor of residential buildings. And this is even true when the vacant storefronts are in the middle of a crosstown block, which means no banks or drug stores — PolitiTweet.org

This has long been a big mystery. Even before the pandemic, dozens of small businesses and restaurants on the Upper West Side were forced out by usurious rent increases. Then the storefronts sit vacant for 5 years. Is it banks that won't let over-leveraged landlords lower rents? — PolitiTweet.org

Joe Nocera @opinion_joe

@powellnyt @EaterNY Somebody needs to explain the economics of tossing out businesses when there is no hope of renting to someone else.
