Last day of Inktober! This is the Kid's roommate, and also the roommate's cat, Banksy. An excellent portrait of both of them, by the way.

I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications forthe U.S. government’s support of Ukraine. I realized that if Ukraine pursued an investigation into the Bidens and Burisma, it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in Ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained. This would all undermine U.S. national security.

I no longer hate Hillary Clinton. In the beginning of my journey when I realized I was lied to by conservative media, I researched everything again which included Hillary. She was not the person Hannity made her out to be. I admire her a great deal now. https://t.co/O7Hkjy2E1P— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) October 5, 2019
...many here seem determined to get rid of the last institutions trying to help them, to keep people with educations out, and to retreat from community life and concentrate on taking care of themselves and their own families. It’s an attitude that is against taxes, immigrants and government, but also against helping your neighbor.
It's always a good day to be reminded that I got where I am because a great education was available for $50 a semester at the University of Houston (go Cougars!). We need to cancel student debt and make college free for everyone who wants it. pic.twitter.com/fHasLm0j9P— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) October 3, 2019
