The murder of the Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman this afternoon is shocking, and tragic, particularly during an election season that's seen such a rise in participation and enthusiasm. I'll just echo my Atlantic Media colleague Marc Ambinder:
In the United States, in our open republic, party offices and campaign offices are open offices, welcoming volunteers and supporters and enthusiasts. That's the way it should be.
Those of us in political journalism feel a kinship with anyone who makes their living in the world of politics.
W has a look at the new Comme des Garçons line for H&M, and while the commenters on New York's Cut blog don't so much love what they're seeing, I think everything with polka dots in the center, and the blue jacket are adorable. But more than that, I am psyched that Rei Kawakubo ($, sorry) is going to make her way into a lot of American wardrobes.
