How to Close Tech Industry’s Gender Gap
Lydia DePillis, The New Republic
Every week, it seems, there’s another gender-related dustup in the technology world. The leader of a hacker movement quits over misogyny. A person in charge of recruiting Web developers is fired after publicly calling out sexual comments at a conference. Silicon Valley gets outed, once again, as a haven for bros. Each time, outrage and calls for reform ensue.By the time these things happen, of course, it's too late to do much about them.

Just like it was yesterday. And the day before that, when we rescued two orphaned lambs from the frozen fields. Which isn't something you normally expect in March, is it?

Republicans Could Hold House, Senate, Presidency by ’16
Matt Lewis, DC
As bleak as things look for the GOP in the short-term (and they do look bleak), it’s stunning to consider the entirely possible scenario whereby Republicans could control the presidency and both houses of Congress in the very near future.Consider this: As Romney learned, history says it’s difficult to defeat a sitting president in the modern era. But it is arguably even harder for a political party to win three consecutive presidential elections.Only George H.W. Bush (who was essentially awarded Reagan’s third term) has pulled it off in the last fifty, or so,…
