    Care about education? Care about everyone having access to the Web – not just poorly educated kids? Make broadband access a public utility.

    Then, get ready for all the whining about protecting the profits of Comcast and AT&T.

    Trump Is Now Feuding With the U.S. Women’s National Team https://slate.com/culture/2019/06/uswnt-players-trump-white-house-visit.html ” The U.S. Women’s National Team drew President Donald Trump’s ire this week when co-captain Megan Rapinoe expressed her intention to decline a potential White House invitation if the team wins the World Cup.
    The episode began on Tuesday, when Rapinoe, who on Monday scored both of the team’s goals in a win over Spain, was seen in a viral video published by soccer magazine Eight by Eight. “I’m not going to the fucking White House,” Rapinoe said. “No, I’m not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited.”
    Rapinoe had also made her stance clear in an interview with Sports Illustrated. “I am not going to fake it, hobnob with the president, who is clearly against so many of the things that I am [for] and so many of the things that I actually am. I have no interest in extending our platform to him.” [https://www.si.com/soccer/2019/05/29/megan-rapinoe-usa-womens-world-cup-uswnt-voice ] But it wasn’t until the sound bite reached the president’s favorite medium that the story blew up.
