Do yard signs matter?  I was totally going to write this post (parties have seized on to a couple of RCT that show they help by only a couple ppt and aren’t necessarily the best use of money, but how externally valid are those studies?), but Texas Tribune beat me to it!

    Thank you for making my weekend more interesting and expanding my horizons. Not all the expansion was ‘happy talk’ (this week in Fas* and CK news) but that is important. It was lovely to see my senators did not take and easy out, and to hear that some races are currently closer than historic records would expect. Thank you for the time and effort you put into this every week.

    I’m saving that Captain Awkward letter for whenever my youngest sister starts questioning her abusive marriage (so in about another three or four years, probably). It’s an excellent description and call-out of the whole “But he’s great MOST of the time, what is wrong with ME” that happens in abusive relationships.
