On Black & White In Mayberry

@stuffisthings What I see as mitigating factors:

- The first episode features Sisko witnessing his wife's horrible, violent death. So five seasons isn't actually a weird amount of time to address it, considering he is still grieving.

- Sisko's deceased wife is a light-skinned black woman. So maybe people are intuiting he has a type, as opposed to thinking black men can only date black women.

- There are interracial couples going on all around him. There's Keiko/Miles, obviously; there is also Jadzia and Ezri Dax/Worf; Jake/that white dabo girl; and not-Kira/not-Julian in the 50's episode.

- Sisko definitely has sex w/ Jadzia in the Mirror Universe. Does that count?

On Time to Bone Up on Mike Pence

Matthew Yglesias has actually made it a habit to write about this box of hair. Here's a taste:

Perhaps I'm naive, but I feel that Mike Pence will strike most voters as alarmingly dumb, regardless of the hijinks GOP brass might pull in his defense.

On Understudies! The American Musical and Life After "Cabaret"

Also, I was wondering what people thought about "The American Astronaut," if they thought about it at all? That felt to me like a very good and brave work interested in taking the movie-musical to a new place! But I very rarely see it brought up in the larger conversation and am not sure why.
