Ought to explore Harris' problems with the black vote, eg African-Americans who dislike her lack of US slave descent and her having a white husband. Touchy subjects, but it doesn't pay to ignore them.

So nothing about her record as a prosecutor who jailed black and brown children and their parents? Maybe that's why people don't like her!

Thank you for this little nugget! Leo you saved me at dinner last night. I so rarely remember to seek the answers to the deluge of questions I have on a daily basis, one of them being the meaning of quid pro quo. I understood the gist of it but I've wanted to know the literal translation and never made the time. I remembered Leo casually answering the question and was impressed by his presence enough to stop what I was doing and listen. When it came up at dinner that most Americans probably don't know what it means I answered just as casually as Leo had and kept shoveling potatoes into my mouth like it was nothing, all the while being so grateful for Leo and The Daily. 🙏🏼

To both Mike S. and Mike B., as you were probably called when you were in third grade, congratulations on your interview with Leo. You treated him with dignity and respect. That was classy! Congratulations to Leo, of course, and to his wise mother who brilliantly has guided her gifted child. I applaud her decision to kept his last name private.

U probably didn't expect another school shooting when u were typing a few days ago. I will NEVER understand why American citizens need semi or automatic weapons. So ĺlinclude machine guns. ie: AR15's, ect. My prayers go out to the families whose children were gunned down & those 100's traumatized in CA this morning. I have no idea what kind of gun was used, doesn't matter. We need to fix what we can, & work harder on the rest! peace. claire https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b2oM8F_bUhDa3WhTAD76dePcj4ygSbQl/view?usp=drivesdk
