Definition of Second Gentleman: the husband or male partner of a vice president or second in command of a country or jurisdiction.
Merriam-Webster added this new word to its dictionary—all thanks to Kamala Harris. The Second Gentleman in question tweeted it out with pride, saying, “I might be the first, but I won't be the last.” Amen!
Editor’s note: We have two big stories today (thanks to the union budget)—though slightly abbreviated to preserve our sanity and yours:)
The great Indian blockade
The TLDR: On Monday, the government moved swiftly to block their critics, both on Twitter and at protest sites. The obvious result: An astonishing show of unilateral power. But Twitter reversed its decision by the evening, leaving us with the big question: What exactly is this supposed to achieve?
A big-spending budget
The TLDR: For months, experts have been urging the government to throw fiscal caution to the winds and spend big to revive the economy. The 2021 union budget delivered big on that advice. But a number of key sectors were left to fend for themselves. The good news for the tax-payer: no tax hikes to finance the big spend.
