Donald Trump's criminality unleashed a bitter new phase of American politics.

People not from Jersey have this impression that it sucks, and people from Jersey love it.

I think it's bc the points of interest in the state are very diffuse. It doesn't have a stand-out center of cultural gravity for the mind to latch on to.

I feel like there's almost a level of glee about SVB going under. But as far as I can tell, it's a big loss for folks who like innovation.
