It’s a gorgeous spring morning, and Sally Quinn—the hotshot journalist turned wife of legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee turned gatekeeper of Washington society turned religion columnist and about-to-turn evangelist for mysticism, magic, and the divine—is tucked into a wicker settee behind her Georgetown mansion, awaiting the arrival of an ABC News crew.
I'm glad my wife, children and dogs will not be influenced by this woman. I suppose Peggy Noonan knows her.

"Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that's no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy," Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in a letter to the FBI.
But it's ok for academic articles.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is raising speculation that Harriet Tubman's future on the $20 bill could be in jeopardy.
Personally, I don't think Jackson deserves to be celebrated. But taking him of the $20 would just encourage further iconoclasm.

Immigrants will face additional scrutiny to get permanent residency, Trump administration says | The Sacramento Bee
Citing President Trump’s Executive Order 13780, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry,” the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said Thursday that in-person interviews will be required for approximately 130,000 immigrants nationwide seeking green cards. In the past, immigrants already here on work visas could apply by mail or on line for permanent residency. The interviews will be required along with forms 140 and I-485.
This doesn't seem unreasonable on its face.
Nibiru, sometimes referred to as Planet X, is a hypothesized planet on the edge of our solar system. Nibiru has been predicted to end the world several times since 2003. Scientists have refused to acknowledge the existence of Nibiru, and NASA has repeatedly assured the public that nothing they know of will be smashing into the Earth anytime soon. “Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an internet hoax,” NASA says.
But Christian numerologist David Meade says otherwise. He claims that a star is driving Planet X, also known as Nibiru, towards our own planet. Meade says he uses passages from the Bible to back his claims about the wayward planet and it’s supposed collision with Earth.
This is the first I've heard of this. Actually I didn't even know Christian numerology was a thing, but I guess it stands to reason.
