What happened on July 11 from On This Day.

On this day in 1804, The Burr-Hamilton duel was fought between prominent American politicians Aaron Burr, the sitting Vice President of the United States, and Alexander Hamilton, the former Secretary of the Treasury, at Weehawken, New Jersey on July 11, 1804. The duel was the culmination of a long and bitter rivalry between the two men. Burr shot and mortally wounded Hamilton, who was carried to the home of William Bayard, where he died the next day. Burr fled to Saint Simons Island, Georgia. He stayed at the plantation of Pierce Butler at Hampton Point, but soon returned to Washington, D.C. to complete his term of service as Vice President.

Quote of the day:

"Television hangs on the questionable theory that whatever happens anywhere should be sensed everywhere. If everyone is going to be able to see everything, in the long run all sights may lose whatever rarity value they once possessed, and it may well turn out that people, being able to see and hear practically everything, will be specially interested in almost nothing."
-E.B. White (July 11, 1899 - October 1, 1985)

Controversial studies suggest coffee drinkers live longer. The researchers weren't able to identify a causal relationship, nor were they able to explain why coffee appears to confer these health benefits. And importantly, some experts are challenging the conclusions reached in these two studies, saying the results were misleading, and that blanket statements about coffee consumption ignore the fact that, for some, caffeine is dangerous.

Trump Dump:

Read 'em and weep... Trump's Twitter archive.

(As of midnight...)

The latest Trump/Russia leaks came from inside the White House.

Trump aides: Russia flap proves Don Jr. is the 'Fredo. of the First Family. Gee. I would have thought it would have been Eric.

Donald Trump is dragging down America. "So what did we learn? We learned that Donald Trump has pressed fast forward on the decline of the United States as a global leader."

Walter Shaub's brave, quixotic ethics battle with Trump. "Public service is a public trust,” Shaub wrote in his resignation letter, one requiring “employees to place loyalty to the Constitution, the laws and ethical principles above private gain."

So that's why Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants the cameras off. She has no earthly idea what's going on in the White House she purports to represent.
