House Democrats subpoena White House in impeachment inquiry
axios.com Oct 04， 2019
House committees leading the impeachment inquiry against President Trump subpoenaed acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Friday.
The big picture: This comes after nearly a month of White House refusals to comply with House investigations into whether Trump jeopardized national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 presidential election, and by withholding security assistance provided by Congress to help Ukraine, per the subpoena. The committees are demanding documents by Oct. 18.

Mike Pence Failed in His Most Important Duty
theatlantic.com Oct 04, 2018
The vice president is supposed to be prepared to step into the nation’s highest office if necessary.
For now, all we need to say is that Pence betrayed his most important duty as vice president: Be ready to step into the nation’s highest office should the need arise. He’s as much a part of the problem as Trump is, and Pence’s personal choices ensure that the scandal of the century will continue to rip apart U.S. politics even if the impeachment process somehow succeeds.

英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile
今天CNBC头版文章“Dow rallies more than 350 points after ‘Goldilocks’ jobs report”有两处语言亮点: Sweet Point 和 Goldilocks.
Sweet Point 和 Goldilocks 在文中都是要表达“”恰到好处” 、“刚刚好” 和“正正好”的意思。
Sweet point 原指球拍、球棒等上的最有效击打点，现引申为最佳点，恰到好处，最佳平衡点。
Goldilocks 是指英国童话故事 “ The Three Bears（金发女孩与三只小熊）中的金发女孩（故事省略），后来形成Goldilocks principle（金发女孩原则），即“刚刚好就是最适合的”。
在经济学中，Goldilocks economy 描述的经济状态不会太热导致通货膨胀；Goldilocks market代表的是牛市和熊市之间的刚刚好状态；Goldilocks pricing 则是一种正正好的市场定价......
Stocks closed higher on Friday as the latest U.S. jobs report hit the sweet spot with Wall Street traders.
“This sounds like a Goldilocks number to me,” Steve Grasso, director of institutional sales at Stuart Frankel, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “It still gives the Fed some room for cover to cut rates. This is as close to a not-too-hot, not-too-cold greeting for the market.”
