It is worth remembering, however — in the wake of another high-profile domestic violence incident involving now-former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt that exploded over the weekend — that the idea that NFL players are prone to criminal behavior is decidedly, definitely not true. A 2014 FiveThirtyEight study showed NFL players, when compared to men aged 25–29 in the country on the whole, are dramatically less likely to commit crimes, particularly drug-related, DUI, burglary, and assault charges. NFL players commit crimes at 13 percent of the national average, and while certain crimes have a closer ratio, including domestic violence (which is still just 55 percent of the national average), still, across the board: NFL players aren’t criminals. They likely have a lower rate of criminal activity than people at your job do. Obviously, one incident of domestic violence is too many. But the idea that this is an epidemic is a matter of misperception rather than fact … [Read more...] about The NFL’s Real Problem Isn’t Kareem Hunt. It’s Roger Goodell.

Oh, I can’t give you nothing! Let me tell you, I really honestly watch the show as a fan. I do my scenes and I fucking leave. Because I don’t want see it. I barely read the outline.

Klobuchar doesn’t have the polished veneer and smooth delivery that comes from a lifetime spent in the national spotlight, and she has struggled to gain traction on the campaign trail. In Minnesota, however, she is enormously popular. She has won all three of her Senate elections by double digits. In 2016, Hillary Clinton carried nine of Minnesota’s 87 counties. Klobuchar carried 51 in 2018. And it’s far too early to count Klobuchar out — Sen. John Kerry, the eventual Democrat nominee in 2004, was also polling in the single digits at this point in the race. … [Read more...] about Editorial: Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren Are Democrats’ Top Choices for President
After the election, her family persuaded Abrams to go to Turks and Caicos, deputizing her old friend Camille Johnson, who accompanied her, to make sure she ventured outside the hotel.
