Tis rigor and not law

Yes indeed, Donald Trump can win this election

Not saying he will, just saying that it’s perfectly feasible. Evidence below, link here.

Professor: flight was delayed because my equations raised terror fears
American Airlines says woman expressed suspicion about University of Pennsylvania economics professor, who was solving a differential equation
“…Menzio recounted the “unbelievable” experience in the present
tense. “The passenger sitting next to me calls the stewardess, passes
her a note.”

The plane, ready to take off, then returned to the gate and the
passenger left. Menzio was then asked to disembark the plane and “met by
some FBI looking man-in-black”.

“They ask me about my neighbor,” he wrote. “I tell them I noticed nothing strange. They tell
me she thought I was a terrorist because I was writing strange things
on a pad of paper. I laugh. I bring them back to the plane. I showed
them my math.”

Menzio told the Washington Post
that he was “treated respectfully throughout” the process but remains
perturbed by a system that “relies on the input of people who may be
completely clueless”.”

UPDATE: Reader ‘PW’ mails in this apt Mencken quote:

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents,
more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great
and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their
heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a
downright moron.”
— H. L. Mencken
