New York is always a high-stress venue, and the early 1970s was one of the rougher eras. Lots of natives fled for quieter climes — I was one of them! (And not ashamed I did, although I should not have persuaded my sweet freshman roommate from Iron Mountain that NYC had a secret lottery system requiring a certain percentage of city-born high school graduates to leave, in order to make room for all the Midwesterners who wanted to move into the Big Apple.)
Just a few years earlier, Bernie Sanders was another escapee, who went on to make a good life for himself in a
whiter quieter place. But, one way and another, things have changed back in the nabe — and Bernie Is Back, Beyotches!…
Klobuchar opens up in Minnesota in a snow storm and Bernie goes “Well I can announce even whiter than that, Jane, get that white reggae band and Talculm X on the phone!”

Here is another crowd shot from another angle. Still overwhelmingly male, largely white. pic.twitter.com/r9yWbYKqWO

Wait, I missed this – Sanders had a Stein voter introduce him? ?? https://t.co/2JB0O1V0KX

Jane Sanders at Bernie’s campaign launch: “I know it may not be politically correct to identify myself as a wife, but it’s one of the great honors of my life.”
We’re not at CPAC anymore.

But you just might be at Mirror-World CPAC, on the other leg of the political horseshoe. Different True Believers, same fevered enthusiasm for The Narrative!
