• “We will elect a whole platoon of empty, defeated men to the Senate on Tuesday, and then, two years from now, we will search out another company of hollow heroes to champion our righteous rage.” – On the eve of election day, Thomas Frank returns home to rediscover what’s the matter with Kansas.

• Meaningless Forbes headline of the day: “Why Purpose-Driven Innovation Trumps All.”
