Yes, you’re right. I’m going to ask you to be a paying subscriber of the Editorial Board. But before I do want to gush a little over Adam Schiff a bit.

He’s been doing a great job presiding over impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives. But he’s done something else—provided drama with powerful political substance.

Just as Marie Yovanovich was recounting the experience of being bullied by the administration, the president tweeted remarks that were, well, bullying. Schiff capitalized on Trump’s impulse to create the most memorable moment yet.

This is brilliant on so many levels but it’s also good, as in virtuous.

That matters.

And now …

Please consider becoming paying subscriber to the Editorial Board. For the cost of two Starbucks lattes, you get more than 20 editions a month, more than 200 editions a year, access to a growing community of thoughtful Americans who care about the common good, and the warm feeling of helping a nice guy with something to say.

If everyone who reads the Editorial Board helped pay for it, I wouldn’t ask anymore! So please do your part, and support independent thought to thrive in the future. If you subscribe for the year, you get a discount valued at two months free! Can’t beat that!

Many thanks. —John Stoehr
