I have written to my senators, both of whom are Democrats, urging them to oppose Jefferson Sessions for Attorney General and Steven Mnuchin for Treasury. Sessions is, among other problems, an enthusiast for civil forfeiture, and Mnuchin is a crony capitalist who wants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to go back to making high-risk loans and letting the taxpayers bail them out if things go sour.
Ruth Graham has an article in Slate about Sigrid Undset and her Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy. I read the books a couple of years ago, so this was if some interest to me, and it might be of interest to some of my friends as well. Be warned, though, that the article contains spoilers.
