So Ruiz set about scavenging whatever domestic objects she could lay her hands on: dressers, tables, mirrors, chairs, lamps, an old TV and even a dildo. She enlisted the help of her mom and stepdad who run a handyman business and could help with installation. (“They are always there for me,” she says.) … [Read more...] about Breakout art star Gabriela Ruiz plays with body and identity in her first solo show
Since concluding her 2018 campaign to be Georgia’s governor — refusing to concede in a race marred by voter-suppression tactics and won by Republican Brian Kemp, Georgia’s former secretary of State, who’d held on to his job managing the election despite being a candidate in it — Abrams has been busier than ever. She and her team have filed a federal lawsuit and launched an organization called Fair Fight to challenge Georgia’s entire electoral system; Lauren Groh-Wargo, Abrams’s former campaign manager and the CEO of Fair Fight, has compared the suit to Brown v. Board of Education in the scope of the injustice it aims to remedy. Abrams has also recently published a widely circulated essay about identity politics for Foreign Affairs; shared a stage with Ava DuVernay in California; appeared in an ad touting Fair Fight during the Super Bowl; and been a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, BuzzFeed’s AM2DM, and NPR’s Wait Wait … … [Read more...] about Stacey Abrams for ….

But while they started to raise money, Lamont, who had no need to do so, courted party power brokers and convention delegates, until it began to seem as if there weren’t a credible path in the primary for anyone else. … [Read more...] about Establishment vs. Ex-con in Connecticut Democrats’s Gubernatorial Primary
The official explanations of the mission were just as vague and deferential the following day, when I went on the military’s first official tour of Camp Donna, a base that had sprung up almost overnight, 15 minutes outside McAllen, to house a contingent of roughly 600 soldiers. Our escorts repeatedly emphasized that the soldiers were unarmed. They could not agree on the question of whether the base constituted a deployment. I asked one officer whether the caravan was a national-security threat from the military’s perspective. He said that was a question for General James Mattis, who was then still the secretary of Defense. A group of engineers resting outside their tent explained that barbed wire can be spooled out in single, double, triple, or 11-roll strands. Eleven-roll can stop vehicles. “That’s for more of a combat-type scenario,” one told me. “We wouldn’t use that here. That’d be overkill.” Instead, they’d opted for … [Read more...] about ‘Come On Down to the Rio Grande Valley. I’ll Show You Around.’
