@cedsaidso No. I can see using that definition. But we were focused on men missing from their communities.@MichaelRStrain @JustinWolfers @KevinQ Thanks a lot, Michael.
@peterwayner @JustinWolfers We're looking at the non-imprisoned population.What distinguishes the places with the largest number of missing men?

Retweeted by David Leonhardt@EdAsante77 Thanks a lot, on all counts.@EdAsante77 Oh, yes, and article says so. But mortality disparity is not all homicide.What U.S. city has the highest share of missing black men (mostly from imprisonment and death)? Ferguson, Missouri. http://t.co/JOJeNYWLBv@EdAsante77 Not exclusively. Also heart disease, accidents, lung disease...Outside of jail, black women aged 25 to 54 outnumber black men by 1.5 million - or 21%. http://t.co/JOJeNYWLBv http://t.co/tQdxKf5eVz1.5 million black men - more than 20%, stunningly - are missing, mostly because of incarceration and early deaths. http://t.co/JOJeNYWLBvEvangelicals still play a big role in the Republican primary race, and they like Huckabee. http://t.co/3eu7Kp06g7 http://t.co/9EVsPWYv6w

@wagesofwins @Nate_Cohn We do actually have a water-cooler! But once we're away from our desks and over there, we tend to talk Mariners.@lophus89 It's pretty hard for anyone to be the McCain given the strength of Bush and Walker.Hot off the virtual press: back-of-the-envelope @UpshotNYT GOP odds, from @Nate_Cohn... Bush 37% Walker 30% Rubio 18% The field 15%A favorite bit of Upshot water-cooler conversation is talking Rubio with @Nate_Cohn. We decided to do it in writing, http://t.co/bHeRSmagF9@morningmoneyben @samsteinhp On the plus side for Yankee fans, they're rooting for a likable and plucky group of young players on the rise.@samsteinhp Yes, but their roster is not fear-inducing.Are the Yankees now so mediocre that Red Sox fans should be rooting for them against other AL East teams? I still don't think I can...
Rubio's chance depends on using his advantages over Bush and Walker - like inspiration - to catch up.The next few months may matter more for Rubio than anyone. He's a credible potential nominee. But he's behind Walker and Bush today.On the one hand, this is the precise moment when people will wildly exaggerate the importance of a speech. On the other ...@Metsfanapk They weren't. You can be president without it. But it's harder.Good speech with some good lines, esp. generational contrast with Hillary. On policy, a speech a Republican could have given in 1999.

Nor Obama, nor Reagan, nor ...The only recent nominee who's come from as far back in the pack as Marco Rubio now is: Bill Clinton, in 1992. http://t.co/rB7zGtOZec"Economist at LinkedIn" job sounds cool. @DLeonhardt, maybe for one of your buddies? https://t.co/jTsJgv8u5s

Retweeted by David Leonhardt@TomLevenson @UpshotNYT That article gives it to you even if my tweet didn't!@TomLevenson Bush is distrusted by many, Walker unproven. Rubio is a strong speaker with a good bio and broadly acceptable.I consider Rubio a top-tier - arguably underrated - candidate. But there are real reasons for skepticism. http://t.co/vADTREzY9R@mattyglesias Fair q.
