The Pittsburgh killings targeted Jews — and America’s soul:

The mass killing at a Pittsburgh synagogue, likely the worst anti-Semitic incident in US history, has Jewish Americans questioning whether they are now fated to live with the fear and threats at home that their community has long endured around the world.

The attack represents a flagrant challenge to America’s core values — that people of every race or religion are endowed with the same inalienable rights. Suddenly, these fundamental beliefs are being tested in a divisive new political era that targets a shadowy concept of The Other: Muslims, Mexicans, Middle Easterners.

On Saturday morning — the Jewish Sabbath — a gunman shattered the sense of belonging for Jews in America, too.

An aggrieved Trump digs in after pipe bomb scares:

President Donald Trump believes he is being unfairly linked to the pipe bombs delivered to frequent targets of his acrimonious rhetoric and has watched with disdain as the national conversation has shifted to his role in shaping the divisive political environment.

Rather than cooling off his tone, he is digging in, two people who spoke to him on Thursday said. Trump has no plans to claim any personal responsibility that he has contributed to the divisive climate surrounding the attempted attacks, the two people said. And his advisers have no plans to urge him to dial back his attacks on the media, a senior White House official said.
The President on Wednesday condemned the attempted bombings and called for Americans to “unify” and strive for civility before stressing that the media “has a responsibility to set a civil tone.”

Red Sox Beat Dodgers to Win 9th World Series Title Behind Dominant David Price:

The Boston Red Sox captured their ninth World Series title Sunday night, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 at Dodger Stadium.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora unexpectedly called on David Price instead of Chris Sale to start the fifth game of the Fall Classic, and the gambit paid off, as Price pitched seven-plus innings, allowing one earned run and striking out five batters.

Boston hitters roughed up Clayton Kershaw en route to an 8-4 win in Game 1, and they had Kershaw’s number again. The three-time National League Cy Young Award winner surrendered four earned runs in seven innings.

What early voting numbers do (and don’t) tell us:

Voting is well underway in most of 2018’s major battlegrounds, and campaigns, parties and reporters are all closely watching key states’ daily updates of how many people are voting and where.

How much does that data actually tell us about who’s winning and who’s losing? Harry Enten is a skeptic. Eric Bradner is a believer. So we decided to put our conversation about it online.
One thing we agree on: The Nevada Independent’s Jon Ralston and Florida Democratic strategist Steve Schale are running blogs with some of the most useful early voting coverage you’ll find. to read story
