Author #ToniMorrison died Monday in New York at the age of 88. Morrison was one of two American women to win the #NobelPrize in #Literature, and the only African American to do so. "When I think of Morrison's legacy," writes Culture Critic Jeva Lange, "I think of what she described in her 1993 Nobel laureate speech as 'the measure of our lives' — language. ... Morrison's abilities transcended the sort of stylistic language that can be palely mimicked. Her novels cut with urgency because of the content driving the style to begin with, content that is often dark and reckoning, and that most writers aren't brave enough to look at straight on."

After a mass shooting, "the instinct to 'do something' to stop the suffering and fear, and prevent yet another trauma, is very powerful. But that doesn't mean that these initial thoughts make a lot of sense," writes senior correspondent Damon Linker.

“While #women are the majority in #America — 51 percent percent of the population is female — historically, the presidential debate stage has been reserved for men. The fact that so many women are running for president right now is not only unprecedented, it's inspiring: Finally, the #gender that makes up the majority of Americans, but whose rights have for so long been squandered, might be represented by the person occupying the #OvalOffice,” writes Marisa Kabas. But this landmark went unacknowledged during this week’s Democratic debates, and that’s a shame.

Anyone else feeling that #SummertimeSadness? Our Culture Critic Jeva Lange put into words the bluesy feeling that seems to come around this time of year. But Lange argues there is no better time than the summer to feel melancholic: "It is the best season to be moody because you aren't trapped inside to stew with your thoughts. There are more places to cry without being noticed thanks to the tolerable outdoors; there are also more ways to practice #selfcare, from going on an evening run to taking longer, more meandering walks with the dog."

Ole, ole, ole! For many, watching the U.S. women’s National Soccer Team sweep the #WomensWorldCup is intoxicating. With a good chance of beating England in the semifinals this afternoon, the team is the heavy favorite to win what would be its fourth title in eight World Cup tournaments. “But as invigorating as it’s been to root for the U.S. women’s team on a national stage, the USWNT’s domination isn’t a sign of health for the sport,” writes Culture Critic Jeva Lange. “Instead, it’s a sign that women’s soccer still has so far to go.” While the U.S. women’s soccer team faces infuriating and widely-publicized hurdles, compared to other countries, the league has a much better# infrastructure. Women were outright banned from playing #soccer for decades in Brazil, England, and Germany, and now they’re playing catch-up. Even worse, several South American and African women’s national clubs remain unpaid, while Thailand is almost single-handedly supported by an insurance company CEO. So, as exciting as it is to watch an #American women’s sport dynasty in the making, we need to root for women’s soccer as a whole.

𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐯𝐬. 𝐖𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧: 𝐖𝐡𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐛𝐭 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫?⠀ This week, Sen. Bernie Sanders announced his latest big #policy idea: He wants to wipe out ALL $1.6 trillion of Americans' student debt. A few weeks ago, Sen. Elizabeth Warren proposed a plan that, while it didn't go that far, is still estimated to eliminate all #studentdebt for 75 percent of the 45 million people who owe it, and reduce at least some of the debt for 95 percent. Their proposed plans are definitely the ones to beat in the #Democratic field, so let's take a look at how they stack up against each other:⠀ ⠀ 𝐖𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧⠀ • Aims to make two- and four-year public colleges tuition-free for everyone by instituting a big new federal funding program to cover the money that colleges and universities rake in from tuition and fees now. ⠀ • Wants to bulk up funding for historically black colleges and programs like Pell Grants to give minority and low-income students an extra boost.⠀ • Wants to set up a more limited debt relief offering, on an income-based sliding scale. All households that make $100,000 or less a year would get $50,000 of debt wiped out. For households making above that threshold, the debt cancellation would slowly decrease in size until it hit zero at $250,000 a year. Her total spending package would be around $1.2 trillion.⠀ ⠀ 𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬⠀ • Aims to make two- and four-year public colleges tuition-free for everyone by instituting a big new federal funding program to cover the money that colleges and universities rake in from tuition and fees now. ⠀ • Wants to bulk up funding for historically black colleges and programs like Pell Grants to give minority and low-income students an extra boost.⠀ • Wants to cancel all student debt, so that will require spending a total spending package of $2.2 trillion over 10 years.⠀ ⠀ Although both approaches are pretty similar, Business and Economic Correspondent Jeff Spross thinks one is better for the overall #health of society.

Prepare yourself, because the upcoming #Trump campaign events of 2020 are going to look and sound a lot like the ones of 2016. From the looks of Tuesday night, when the president launched his re-election #campaign with a "garish, interminable, and morally appalling rally" in Orlando, Florida, nothing has changed. Our Senior Correspondent Damon Linker calls it textbook right-wing #populism in his latest column, recounting last night's event where #Trump mocked, belittled, provoked, condescended, and ridiculed his opponents just as he demonized those he considers outsiders. None of it was surprising and if it worked for him in 2016, who's to say it won't in 2020. But, there are reasons to be skeptical about the #electoral potency of #Trumpism in 2020. Trump ran against the ideal opponent in 2016 and he barely won — it's not very likely that he significantly increases his vote share in 2020 with an identical, sharply polarizing and antagonizing message, writes Linker.

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) doesn't want to anything more about #reparations. McConnell was asked about the matter during his weekly mews conference on Tuesday, to which he responded, "I don't think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible, is a good idea." He also stated that it would be too difficult to figure out whom to compensate and the U.S. has already made several efforts to reconcile with its "original sin." Those efforts apparently include fighting the Civil War, passing civil rights #legislation, and electing former President Barack #Obama ... 📸: @gettyimages

Amazon, which doubled its profits and made more than $11 billion in 2018, won't pay any #federal income taxes for the second year in a row. The company will not be required to pay the standard 21 percent income #tax rate on its 2018 profits, and is claiming a tax rebate of $129 million, which the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy describes as a "a tax rate of negative 1 percent." Last year was the first time #Amazon paid no federal income tax whatsoever; from 2011 to 2016, the company payed federal income tax at a rate of 11.4 percent — less than half of the #national rate of 35 percent.

President Trump seemed to be very interested in Beto O'Rourke's evidently larger crowd during his El Paso rally. He started comparing crowd sizes even before he took the stage at the El Paso County Coliseum on Monday night. "I understand our competition's got a line, too, but it's a tiny, little line," said Trump. The "competition" would be an anti-wall march organized by more than 40 local civic and human rights groups, headlined by El Paso native and potential #2020 candidate O'Rourke. Turns out a tiny, little line was more like 7,000 people. The #president said 10,000 people were inside the stadium for his #rally, but the El Paso Fire Department said it was at capacity at 6,500 with the people outside maybe making up the difference. Either way, looks like we're playing another game of numbers going into 2020. 📸: Christ Chavez / @gettyimages

The Republican tax cut is the gift that keeps on giving ... to Democrats. The 2017 law was supposed to boost workers' wages, create jobs, and drive more investment — and as we've known for awhile, it's done none of that. But now we can add two more failures to the creatively-named Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA): It hasn't encouraged corporations to return their profits from overseas, and it's probably hiding a nasty surprise for many Americans come tax season. Tax day isn't until April, but the average refund is already down more than 8 percent compared to last year. Anecdotal evidence is also rolling in that people who expected refunds are getting hit with extra tax bills instead. Business and Economics Correspondent Jeff Spross has some thoughts on this: "The Republicans, supposedly the green-eyeshade party that Americans trust to handle the economy, are at best a pack of incompetents and at worst a gang of swindlers. Their landmark tax overhaul, supposedly the pinnacle of their efforts, is an incoherent and contradictory mess. And its results keep getting worse and worse."

Remember a thing called Snapchat? You know, the platform that gained the attention of tech-hungry teens with its "story" format? Don't feel bad if you don't, it's easy to forget about when the company is a sad shell of what it used to be. Snapchat has been usurped in the public consciousness by its competitors — and by competitors, we mostly mean Facebook. The format that used to define Snapchat was co-opted by Instagram in 2016, and just two and a half years later, Instagram Stories has 500 million daily active users. And now, Facebook Messenger also includes a story feature. Snapchat is hemmed in — overwhelmed by Facebook users and undercut by Facebook for advertising dollars, says Contributing Writer Navneet Alang. "At present, our digital revolution is overwhelmingly dominated by a few key players with far too much power — ones who can, like a movie villain, simply snap their fingers and make their competitors fade away."

"Layoffs are immoral. To deprive someone of a wage not because he is failing to earn it or because you can no longer afford to pay it but because you have decided that you would prefer not to pay him is robbery. The fact that it has been a widely accepted and almost universally recommended business practice for more than 30 years tells us one thing: Corporations do not exist to deliver goods and services to people. Nor are they there to provide employment to workers. They are a nihilistic engine for the accumulation of wealth." — Matthew Walther on the immorality of layoffs.

On Monday, officials announced that the death toll from California's devastating #CampFire has risen to 42. This makes it the deadliest #wildfire ever in a state that has routinely seen big blazes. This horrific death toll is just one more piece of evidence that #climatechange is here and the consequences of a warming #planet won't be felt in some far-off future — it's being felt now, and it is a full-fledged emergency, writes Joel Mathis in his latest column. We can measure the changes: In #California, the days and nights are getting warmer and the rainy season is declining. In #Florida, coastal properties are at risk because of rising sea levels. In #Alaska, residents are being forced to move to higher ground as rising sea levels and melting permafrost erodes their #coastal habitat. So, if climate change increases the chance that your home will burn or be flooded, shouldn't more people support action that might avoid that fate? Aggressive action on the #climate should be at the top of the House of Representative's agenda, says Mathis. "It is no longer history that will judge today's officials for their inaction, but the survivors among their living, breathing constituents. The emergency is here, and it is killing people. It's time to do something about it." To read more from his piece on climate change, click the 🔗 in our bio. ⠀ 📸: Matthew Simmons / @gettyimages

The single most striking result in any of last week's #midterm elections came out of Ohio, says National Correspondent Matthew Walther, where two-term Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown was re-elected again, carrying nine counties won by #Trump in 2016. This is one of the reasons why Walther believes Brown would be the Democratic politician most likely to win a presidential #election in two years. Unlike many progressives, he has openly praised Trump's #tariffs on Chinese goods, which are popular in #Ohio and with private sector union #voters everywhere. Meanwhile he has opposed comprehensive #immigration reform and guest worker programs and supported the construction of a border wall. Of course, many #Democratic voters in places like California and New York would prefer to have a nominee more "woke" than Brown, but at this point, it's about flipping #states and winning elections. "Brown's amiable, folksy style and practical, bread-and-butter approach to issues make him an ideal candidate for reversing Trump's narrow but all-important 2016 margins in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and his home state," writes Walther.

Politicians are self-important creatures, says Columnist Shikha Dalmia. Many have a savior complex and tend to overplay the importance of elections — especially the ones they are contesting. Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Richard Nixon, and many more have been guilty of this: Coaxing voter to schlep to the polls by declaring their presidential runs the "most important election of our lifetime." This is usually not the case, but this Tuesday's election is different. "The 2018 midterm elections are a referendum on Trumpism, the noxious brand of restrictionism, protectionism, and race-baiting that President Trump represents. And unless the electorate roundly defeats Trumpism, it will fester and infect the body politic for a very long time," writes Dalmia.

President Trump has long seized on Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's past claims of Cherokee #ancestry to mock her. He has repeatedly referred to her as "Pocahontas" and in July he even offered to give $1 million to her favorite charity if a #DNA test proved she had Cherokee ancestry. While his teasing is wholly unnecessary, National Correspondent Matthew Walther believes Warren's mini-documentary about her #Cherokee ancestry in response was definitely not needed — in fact, it's kind of embarrassing. "Warren is wasting her own time, that of her supporters, and that of the American people, to say nothing of making a mockery of the suffering of Native Americans, in an attempt to respond to a silly jibe," writes Walther. All her response does is harken back to the era of the so-called "one-drop rule," according to which a man or a woman would be considered black under law if he or she had even a single remote ancestor of African descent. At a time when "scientific" #racism seems to be making a comeback in certain #right-wing circles, Walther believes "the last thing this country needs is a national conversation about race that hinges upon the binary question of whether a person with one untraceable antecedent who was not Caucasian should really be considered white or something — anything — else."

To be honest, National Correspondent Matthew Walther is a little disappointed Hillary Clinton isn't going to try for another presidential #campaign. A Hillary Clinton-Donald Trump rematch in #2020 would definitely be the most hyped #political fight of all time and would give #Clinton the opportunity to run her campaign "right." Walther full-heartedly believes Clinton could walk away with the victory ... she would just have to change a few things. "Instead of allowing her campaign to be run like a Refinery29 editorial meeting, Clinton could argue that the Democrats cannot just be the party of avocado IPA-sipping 20-something brocialist layabouts. She could employ against her primary opponents the same talking points she used against Obama in 2007 — namely that he lacked support among 'hard-working Americans, white Americans,'" writes Walther. Like former attorney general Eric Holder said, "When they go low, we kick them," and considering Clinton knows a thing or two about giving low blows, there is no one better suited for the job.
