  1. On the platform in Wilmington Joe Biden showcased the conductor of 36 years whose son is also a conductor. Biden’s son Beau may soon be Senator from Delaware. So many things run in a rut. I’m so thankful you are not a dry cleaner, Taylor Branch. Thanks for your histories. Thanks for peeking over the side of a deeply worn path of shallow scholarship.
