    • We will get into the tournament.  11 seed.  Last four in.  We will lose a competitive, heart-breaking game.  Played in the 60s.  We will shoot 39.7% from the floor.  Nine blocked shots.  And I’ll still be watching.  Even though I’ve seen it before.
    • Even after these revelations, after it was confirmed that the driver was not a terrorist and had not been armed, CNN did not dial down the fear and panic. Instead, many of its on-air personalities continued to play to their viewers’ anxiety—and applaud the actions of the police. Dana Bash, CNN’s chief congressional correspondent, told viewers that the Capitol Police “got a standing ovation on the House floor, and they deserved that and much, much more.”

    • remaining defiant against Hermle’s rhetorical tricks like ending questions with an accusatory “didn’t you Ms. Pao?” or adding a deferential “Thank you for correcting me, Ms. Pao,” every time the plaintiff pointed out something she didn’t know.
    • But at each turn, Hermle countered, never missing a chance to point out an email that didn’t ask for a copy of Kleiner’s policy. Hermle stressed that Pao had “a very close relationship with John Doerr.” If she wanted help, she could have asked.
