As Constantine the Great and Alexander the Great showed us, just name cities after yourself and they will forever stand as your legacy.

Totally unrelated note, but man airport codes are weird. Was looking to fly to Constantinople this summer and the airport code is IST. How did they come up with that one?

Istanbul is formerly known as Constantinople. And Byzantium, I guess.

They are all afraid of the invisible moderates who vote in the general election. If a moderate has a choice between Trump and of the people running for the Democratic nomination and chooses Trump the person is not a moderate. When are the Democrats going to figure this horsefeathers out?

Just give Bernie the nod. He's old as dirt, but he's the only one with (relatively) any guts, and he's actually popular.

I have now fully embraced that it’ll either be Trump or Bernie in ‘20. I don’t have any faith in the people of this country to vote for anyone else.

Julian Assange arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Metropolitan Police said in a statement that he was "further arrested" on his arrival at a London police station on behalf of United States authorities, who have issued an extradition warrant.

Officers made the move after Ecuador withdrew Assange's asylum and invited authorities into the embassy, citing the Australian's bad behavior.
