A Washington Post report on the frugal nature of the Hillary Clinton campaign notes that, in addition to Hillary, campaign manager John Podesta is the only staffer eligible for senior citizens discounts on Amtrak trains. Both will likely be spending a fair amount of time on the road in the coming months, but if they’re ever back at campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, here are five senior discounts in the area Clinton and Podesta can take advantage of:
A Washington Post article on the Center for American Progress revealing its top donors overlooked John Podesta’s association with a controversial Swiss billionaire who “conducted illegal human experiments that resulted in the deaths of three elderly patients,” according to the Mark Tapscott of the Washington Examiner.

S Street Rising by Ruben Castaneda is at least five different books, all for the price of one. It is a score-settling D.C. memoir by a veteran Washington Post reporter; a well-reported account of a particular corner of the Washington neighborhood of Shaw; an urban noir thriller with betrayal and high-level criminality; a love letter to the reporter’s favorite source, a Metropolitan Police Department officer who commanded the city’s homicide unit during the drug wars; and—most marketably—it is the memoir of a crack addict, complete with rock-bottom-to-redemption narrative arc.
