Patient readers, today is a travel day for me, and so I am altogether unable to post. –lambert
Talk amongst yourselves! In politics, I’d be especially interested to hear about:
1) Election news in New York, especially how the Establishment weighed in on the sides of Rising Stars™ Cynthia Nixon and Zephyr Teachout
2) Election news in California. Did the Sanders forces really take over the state? Somehow I doubt it.
And let’s not forget the “economy” part of “political economy.” Here’s a time exposure of a volanic eruption:
A long exposure of an extremely violent volcano eruption can result in stunning results. This large electrical storm during the first hours of the Calbuco eruption, was obtained by Francisco Negroni in April 2015 https://t.co/RpRNi19Fhs pic.twitter.com/sJuBXwYNUD

Lovely in itself, at least as in image but perhaps not if you’re from Hawaii, but I wonder if we visualized the economy….
Readers, feel free to contact me at lambert [UNDERSCORE] strether [DOT] corrente [AT] yahoo [DOT] com, with (a) links, and even better (b) sources I should curate regularly, (c) how to send me a check if you are allergic to PayPal, and (d) to find out how to send me images of plants. Vegetables are fine! Fungi are deemed to be honorary plants! If you want your handle to appear as a credit, please place it at the start of your mail in parentheses: (thus). Otherwise, I will anonymize by using your initials. See the previous Water Cooler (with plant) here. Today’s plant (KS):
KS: “Flower photos i took in the yard today.” I love columbines. They have a lovely, old-fashioned look, and they’re (at least moderately) invasive. I always have a new crop, and often the color of the flowers changes.
Readers: Water Cooler is a standalone entity not covered by the annual NC fundraiser. So do feel free to make a contribution today or any day. Here is why: Regular positive feedback both makes me feel good and lets me know I’m on the right track with coverage. When I get no donations for five or ten days I get worried. More tangibly, a constant trickle of small donations helps me with expenses, and I factor that trickle in when setting fundraising goals. So if you see something you especially appreciate, do feel free to click the hat!
If you hate PayPal — even though you can use a credit card or debit card on PayPal — you can email me at lambert [UNDERSCORE] strether [DOT] corrente [AT] yahoo [DOT] com, and I will give you directions on how to send a check.
