I am in the media, on a deadline and writing about you. The deadline is tomorrow.

You published, "Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is on board with this take it or leave it approach." https://washingtonmonthly.com/2018/12/06/the-democrats-should-concede-nothing-on-border-wall/

That is gibberish. Who, if anyone, other than the writer, read that before it was published? Did Eric Cortellessa get my message? I said that it is very important and your voicemail system said, "Message sent with high importance."

What is the name of the editor (if any) who reviewed your sentence?

Is 'Senator Minority Leader' a new title in my country, The United States of America that I didn't hear about?

Do you have Eric Cortellessa's direct telephone number? If you do, what is it?

This is very important.

It's important that there is a typo that says Senator instead of Senate?

You published, "Back in 2007, then-MSNBC host Keith Olbermann described the right’s declaration of war against a 12-year-old advocate for health care protections: ... 'Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s office is reportedly collecting those lies and disseminating them to the media.'" [*]

What is the name of any person who read that article before it was published?

What is the writer D.R. Tucker's email address?

Mr. Cortellessa just called and we talked. That was hilarious! Please reply today. Falsity remains.

[* Olbermann did not say that]

[replying to Longman's question "It's important that there is a typo that says Senator instead of Senate?"]

Yes? No? You decide, Mr. Longman. You have the philosophy degree -- from Western Michigan! I'm not in charge of the word important (or typo). You work in an organization containing my capital's name: Washington Monthly! You are much more important than me. I am only in a flyover state and visit the capital as a tourist.

Something that might be important: What you call "Einstein's definition of insanity." What is that definition?

The exalted Norm Ornstein wrote: "Albert Einstein's famous definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. By the Einstein standard, I judge Senator Ron Johnson, Republican of Wisconsin, to be insane" in the New York Times, in his first sentence!

Ornstein, N. J. (2012, July 24). Where Is the Leadership on Gun Control? Retrieved February 2, 2019, from https://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2012/07/23/where-is-the-leadership-on-gun-control/we-need-brave-leaders-to-stand-up-to-gun-owners

Einstein never said that and employers do not use credit scores. What's important? How about overpopulation? The politics of contraction? Extirpation and extinctions of species?
