NYT: 12/20/16

Want a story on yesterday’s electoral college voting results, quite disappointing for Democrats? You’ll have to scour the bowels of today’s NYT stories to find anything.

However, this is right at the top (the crushed voting button is a real subtle flourish):

It’s only a founding concept of the notion of the United States of America, addressed early on in Article 2 of the United States Constitution, establishing (like the concept of the Senate) that we are a republic and not a pure democracy (i.e., tyranny of the majority), that’s all.
