Here’s the corrupt part of what Ron DeSantis is doing with Disney

Maryland Democrats in 2010 tried to impose a “rain tax” before Republican Larry Hogan won the governorship and killed the idea. A rain tax is a tax on paved surfaces that cause stormwater runoff.

Did Twitter break us or merely reveal our brokenness?

About a month ago, I left the D.C. area for a weekend and visited a small town in southwestern Iowa. I had ended up in that small town almost by accident in late 2019 and wrote a big magazine piece about what I found — tiny Imogene, Iowa, beating the odds and hanging on thanks to great community institutions, including a church and an Irish pub. → Read More

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat, is worried that too many groups are expressing political views without providing a list of all their supporters to the government they may be criticizing. So he’s put out a video about it, and it’s deeply misleading in some key ways. → Read More
