What is Dog Shirt Daily?

#DogShirtDaily is a collection of thought, links, reading, recommendations, and inanities I assemble over the course of each day and send out in the evening. It is the home of the Good Morning Image, which has turned into the Good Evening Image as it has matured, and the #BeastOfTheDay—both of whom are refugees from my Twitter feed.

Subscriber-only content includes the podcast “Read With Me,” as well other material still in development—in particular, the successor show to “In Lieu of Fun.”

Who the Heck Are You?

Honestly, I’m still not sure. But I’m working on it.

I am a Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. I am the editor in chief of Lawfare. I was the cofounder and was a cohost on the pandemic cult classic show, “In Lieu of Fun.” I’ve written a bunch of books and a bunch of essays. I used to write editorials but I stopped believing in opinions.

I tend to eat garnishes others regard as decorative. I am alone among my acquaintance for eating shrimp tails.
