***July 18, 2018: "Government Failures Still Hurting Puerto Rican Recovery" in LaborPress by Robert Weiner, Chris Edwards and Ben Lasky: “The wide media coverage of the President’s throwing paper towels as a symbol of helping in a news conference, during his October trip to Puerto Rico, was only a half told story. One person in the room told us, “We wanted to show we need more than paper towels. We actually wanted to throw them back.”

***June 26, 2018: “Nation-leading OSU cancer researchers worry: will Biden’s moonshot continue?” in The Lantern (Ohio State University home paper) by Chris Edwards, Patricia Berg and Robert Weiner: “Cancer research received an uptick in funding of $2.5 billion dollars since 2016. However, the President, chastened by conservatives, said he would ‘never again’ sign appropriations like this year’s and has now proposed ‘rescissions’—cuts after the fact—to the recently passed bill by roughly $15 billion in domestic programs. The fight remains on.”
