From the Pages of Orlando Weekly: Impeachment Inquiry Hearing Theatrics and Quid Pro Quo


He did the thing. There’s no question he did the thing. Everything that’s happening now – the theatrics and distractions, the pundit nitpicking, and the blatant witness tampering – is noise, a spectacle that should only reinforce what any clear-eyed person who’s been paying attention already knows. President Trump held up $400 million in aid to Ukraine to force them to announce investigations into Joe Biden. This for that. Quid pro quo. To be sure, quid pro quos are the mother’s milk of foreign policy. When Biden, in 2016, threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine unless it removed a state prosecutor viewed as corrupt, that was also a quid pro quo. But Biden acted in furtherance …

From the Pages of Orlando Weekly: Senate Committee Approved Bill would block local regulation of all sunscreens


There’s a famous social science experiment, performed at Stanford in the 1960s, known as the marshmallow test. Researchers put one marshmallow in front of a kid, tell her that she can have two if she can go 15 minutes without eating the first one, and then leave the room to see what happens. It’s a simple test of short-term versus long-term thinking.
