-- Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are X-factors. It’s hard to know how resilient these third-party contenders will be in the fall.
-- Trump has with white women, including Republicans, which he continues to ignore at his own peril. Clinton led by three points among white women with college degrees last month. Now she leads by 19 points. Among white women overall, the two are essentially tied (47-46). But exit polls showed that Romney won white women by 14 points.
-- The American Psychiatric Association sent a warning to physicians to be more careful when psychoanalyzing Trump. "The unique atmosphere of this year’s election cycle may lead some to want to psychoanalyze the candidates," Maria A. Oquendo, president of the APA, wrote, "but to do so would not only be unethical, it would be irresponsible."
-- Bob BarnesMarc Elias, who has been fighting (and winning) voter ID battles across the country. "Elias, a go-to lawyer for Democrats in recount fights and redistricting battles, has now taken a prominent and somewhat controversial place among the coalition of groups challenging a wave of state election laws that were rewritten in recent years. With a multimillion-dollar commitment from liberal mega-donor George Soros, Elias is challenging laws that, he argues, diminish the impact of important Democratic Party constituencies of African Americans, Latinos and young people. 'I don’t think people should think we’re done filing lawsuits for this election cycle,' Elias said in a taxicab interview after two flights and a two-hour weather delay delivered him to Phoenix."

I've had every issue of Flypast since edition 1, I've always taken Aeroplane as well (used to be Aeroplane Monthly when I was a lad.......), cost of each is getting high and I am starting to think I need to decide between one or the other...........
Over the last few years I think I've seen a distinct decrease in quality of the articles in Flypast - is it me or does it seem like a comic nowadays with articles having little depth, some almost appear to be repeats of earlier (equally poor) articles ??
Aeroplane on the other hand, has retained its quality, and if anything, seems to have improved.
What do other people feel ??
