Quote of the Day

Since 2001, a half million jobs in department stores across the country have disappeared.  That's many times more than were lost in coal mining.  Just between October 2016 and April 2017, about eighty-nine thousand Americans lost jobs in retail -- more than all the people who work in coal mining put together.  Yet coal continues to loom much larger in our politics and national imagination.

-- Hillary Rodham Clinton, What Happened, p. 283
