Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

In America Money Is Literally Time | Visualizing The First Democratic Debate

The money various candidates have raised is here graphed against the speaking time allotted to them in the first Democratic presidential debate. 

 As in past years, there's a tight relationship that is nearly one to one. 

 What is anomalous is the 'lower tier candidate' effect of slightly less potential political bang for their hard lobbied buck. 

 Downright unusual, however,  is the amount of time given -- or should I say not given -- to Senator Bernie Sanders. 

Be seeing you.
