I think at least one (1) conservative who pretended to be outraged by Hillary's email practices should at least feign some concern about this too. "I support Trump, but this was an error in judgment and..." Something like that.

The fundamental problem here is the New York Times' evolution from the stodgy paper of record into a juicy collection of great narratives.

Was in the neighborhood yesterday so I finally got to check out the only block of row houses in LA. These got banned in the 1930s when LA passed an ordinance mandating that all new homes have lawns. (NB not my picture.)
