    "Barack Obama won 52.9 percent of the popular vote in 2008 and 365 electoral votes, 95 more than he needed. Many naturally concluded that prejudice was not a major factor against a black presidential candidate in modern America. My research, a comparison of Americans’ Google searches and their voting patterns, found otherwise. If my results are correct, racial animus cost Mr. Obama many more votes than we may have realized. Quantifying the effects of racial prejudice on voting is notoriously problematic. Few people admit bias in surveys. So I used a new tool, Google Insights, which tells researchers how often words are searched in different parts of the United States. Can we really quantify racial prejudice in different parts of the country based solely on how often certain words are used on Google? Not perfectly, but remarkably well."

    Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, from his “How Racist Are We? Ask Google.”

    "The house is in need of repair, but is—
    for now, she says—still hers. After the storm,
    she laid hands on what she could reclaim:
    the iron table and chairs etched with rust,
    the dresser laced with mold. Four years gone,
    she’s still rebuilding the shed out back
    and sorting through boxes in the kitchen—
    a lifetime of bills and receipts, deeds
    and warranties, notices spread out
    on the table, a barrage of red ink: past due."

    Excerpt from “Believer” (—for Tamara Jones), by Natasha Trethewey, our newly-minted Poet Laureate. Get to know her work, folks.
