Not clear if he’s been hacked yet, […]

There was an enormous turnout in city after city for the March for Women today. WNBC is saying that NY saw 400,000 demonstrators. I was there and have been at ‘big’ NY demonstrations since the late 80’s, and I can tell you that this was orders of magnitude bigger than the big anti-war demos predating the […]
