We dive deep on the day’s biggest story and share links to everything you need to know.

When he’s not busy being the favorite target of desperate, confused GOP apparatchiks grasping for any non-issue that might help their candidate win a presidential election, Bill Ayers is a Chicago-based professor of education theory. If you’d like to talk to him about that—-and presumably other stuff he’s been involved with—-you can see him in person at Busboys & Poets on November 17 at 6:30 p.m. He’ll be plugging a new book which he co-edited, City Kids, City Schools.

Please leave semi-coherent, rambling accusations about the relationship between Ayers and Barack Obama in the comments.
