‘Look at the campaign he ran’: Charlottesville mayor is becoming one of Trump’s strongest critics
For Signer, Trump’s repeated failure to “condone, denounce, silence, put to bed” the white supremacist voices that invoked his name during the campaign and after he won the White House is why Charlottesville was besieged with violence on Saturday. The president’s statement after the violence, which fell short of directly calling out extremist groups — even after a car allegedly driven by a Nazi sympathizer plowed into counterprotesters — is another example of that, Signer said.

Question for LaTeX users : emacs
I keep seeing software like Mendeley, Zotero, and Docear mentioned as very useful, including for handling BibTeX entries and indexing pdf files etc.
I've used LaTeX for a while and have either edited BibTeX by hand, put it in manually with Jabref or emacs bib-tex mode.
Are there Emacs-AUCTeX users who find any of the above "scholar" applications useful?
