Stay angry. | The Washington Post (A note on this link: It's from Blendle, a service that collects the best journalism around and puts it in a newsletter, and asks you pay around $0.20 for each read. There's a money back guarantee. And if you're like, meh. don't want to pay, let me tell you something. Journalism is crucial for the next for years. Without good journalism, Trump and his cronies will do whatever they want. So if you care about supporting the environment, religious freedom, minorities, and women, sign up for Blendle and pay the $0.20. Thanks.
