Poem of the day

Alien
by Archibald MacLeish (1892-1982)

Here in this inland garden
      Unrumorous of surf,
Here where the willows warden
      Only the sunny turf,

Here in the windy weather,
      Here where the lake wind lulls,
Slowly on silver feather
      Drift overhead the gulls.

O heart estranged of grieving
      What is a sea-bird’s wing?
What beauty past believing
      Are you remembering?

Biden may (or may not) be losing ground with minorities

From the New Republic: “A closer examination of the polling indicates Biden is not in as much trouble with minority voters as the Trump campaign believes (or at least would have the public believe). The president indeed suffers from a dearth of enthusiasm from a cranky electorate, but that’s an across-the-board problem. It’s not particular to Black and Hispanic voters. And if historical trends hold, Biden has a solid chance of bringing those traditional Democratic voters back home come November.”

Yes, the president has work to do with Black and Hispanic voters, but no, they?re not flocking to Donald Trump.
