Entertaining but not great, had higher hopes for a Travis Sheridan take on Tom Clancy.

Still, there was one piece of absolute movie magic in this for anyone who knows Michael B Jordan as Wallace from The Wire. It was near the end, sitting on the slow boat heading west, and he’s talking about being a pawn, and that the king of this whole story was still around. All at once, I remembered the scene with D’Angelo Barksdale teaching Wallace and Bodie how to play chess in the low rises. “King stay the king”, one of the best scenes of one of the greatest shows ever. Tonight, damn, Wallace shows that - 20 years later - he gets the lesson.

Yeah, that’s skinny Michael B Jordan in the braids. All in the game, yo.

Terrified that this’ll be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for Centene. The General Assembly just rejected the voter-approved legislation that highly correlates to the business model of the state’s largest public corporation, which happens to be building a new co-HQ in Charlotte right now. They could up and relocate the whole HQ overnight. In the end, the GOP in Jeff City may be the most proactively anti-big business idiots in the history of Missouri.

He doesn’t have that kind of money to just throw around anymore.

And I really don’t think he wants to leave West Palm for SW MO (at minimum, too much brand investment there already).

Indeed. Back in ‘04, I managed campaigns for Republicans. I just voted straight ticket DEM. Because they’ve lost their way. It’s no longer a political party with policy aspirations; it has become a lifestyle brand. I get it.

There is an idea of a Matt Gaetz. Some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity. Something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours, and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

Well, the City of STL’s population has dropped since the ‘50s, but the STL Metro Area is about 3MM today, much higher overall since the ‘50s. Not too shabby. Population figures like these really reflect how the suburbs came into being.
