I’m sure many of you on the left already have your favorite candidate. I know I do. Still, I am 1000% behind the sentiment on this bumper sticker.

Deactivated my Facebook account. Twitter tomorrow.

[Jeff Goldblum voice] Hey, Mr. Davis, I forgot my instance.

I see that Amazon is in the running to buy Landmark Theaters. Which raises the question, is it OK to yell "Fire Phone!" in a crowded movie house.
