“I remember lying in bed at night thinking, ‘I hope this isn’t real.’ I hope other data comes in that contradicts it. It took me several years to get my head around it and say, ‘Oh, God, it is real.’”

The son of a Miami-Dade police major is being sent to a jail boot camp program as punishment for dealing drugs while living at his father’s home.
The sentence was handed down Friday, four months after detectives arrested Tyler Palmer, 20. Detectives said they found stashes of marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines and psychedelic mushrooms inside his bedroom.
“Judge Eig obviously gave the defendant a big break,” said Miami-Dade prosecutor Adam Korn. “I hope he makes the most of it.”
via the New Yorker: Trump and the Truth. By David Remnick.
"Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President, does not so much struggle with the truth as strangle it altogether. He lies to avoid. He lies to inflame. He lies to promote and to preen. Sometimes he seems to lie just for the hell of it. He traffics in conspiracy theories that he cannot possibly believe and in grotesque promises that he cannot possibly fulfill. When found out, he changes the subject—or lies larger."
