Did the author also look at voters who stayed away? Was voter suppression a factor here?

Hope Jahren
“No risk is more terrifying than that taken by the first root. A lucky root will eventually find water, but its first job is to anchor -- to anchor an embryo and forever end its mobile phase, however passive that mobility was. Once the first root is extended, the plant will never again enjoy any hope (however feeble) of relocating to a place less cold, less dry, less dangerous. Indeed, it will face frost, drought, and greedy jaws without any possibility of flight. The tiny rootlet has only once chance to guess what the future years, decades -- even centuries -- will bring to the patch of soil where it sits. It assesses the light and humidity of the moment, refers to its programming, and quite literally takes the plunge.”
Hope Jahren, Lab Girl

Caroline Kepnes
“It is possible to know people. They show you who they are. You just have to be looking.”
Caroline Kepnes, Hidden Bodies

Zaman Ali
“Books have the power to create, destroy or change civilizations.”
Zaman Ali, HUMANITY

Chris Kyle
“People ask me all the time, “How many people have you killed?” My standard response is, “Does the answer make me less, or more, of a man?”
Chris Kyle, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

Jay Spencer Green
“They forget that the CIA is all about collecting information. Information for other people to act on. If you join the CIA expecting a life of laser guns, ju-jitsu and exotic STDs, bear in mind that your only contact with them may come through the pages of The Lancet and Popular Mechanics.”
Jay Spencer Green, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's
