President Trump is at his golf course again today, per pooler @mikememoli. No word on what he's doing there.

We've all long since surrendered agency (if it was ever to hand).

The light in the last series of photos - unreal, wretched with bad anticipation - catches something.

It probably wasn't -- but still. The forsaking so quick.

There are the marches, the protests, the demonstrations. Inside an echo chamber.

Worse still, I see Clinton has re-emerged.

We to whom everything has been given, continue to be taken to the cleaners by so few.

That part of East Baltimore, in those photos, so full of foreboding as you say -- one wouldn't wish to be wandering about there after dark.
