Hey everyone, I took last week off because of my terrible memory. So I’m back this week because of my improved memory!

  • Many people think Donald Trump is a narcissist, but you probably haven’t heard any psychiatrists saying so, because of something called the Goldwater rule. Maggie Koerth-Baker of FiveThirtyEight explains.
  • Blogger Point of Production has some perspectives on new media and online discourse. The piece explains how “new media” got to be in the situation they’re in, but it doesn’t really explain how this leads to “pundit war.” Maybe a reader can complete the theory.

Alright, that’s enough for now. See you next week. I might write up some thoughts on E3. Or not. We’ll see.
