More good news. However appalling was Trump’s temper-tantrum barrage last night, he doubled down on his worst campaign blunder: be the center of attention and make the election about him.

March For Our Lives: A New Generation Sets Aside Tribalism for a Progressive Cause

WASHINGTON — Google the name “Tallulah Bankhead” and you will be regaled (or mortified if your mores tend to the Victorian) with tales of the actor’s libertine appetites, her breakout performance in the Hitchcock classic Lifeboat, or her half-camp, half-vamp villainess in the 1960s Batman television series.
