Two completely unrelated thoughts...

...on a rainy Tuesday morning just so you all know I'm still alive (if not very talkative lately).

The first is that your biggest takeaway from the recent events in Baltimore says a lot about you. If it's that mom slapping her son, above, you're probably a (white) Republican who watches Fox. For everyone else, it was that a 25-year-old black man died while in custody of the Baltimore Police.

Second, here's an interesting statistic on the (almost) eve of the British election: the Conservative Party hasn’t won more than 36 percent of the national vote since 1992.

P. S. Ed Miliband is still a (very) slight favorite on PredictWise and Paddy Power to be the next prime minister of Great Britain.
