Has there been a criminal verdict in the last 10 years with as much riding on it as this one? I'm not sure if I can remember a verdict this important in recent memory...

“Staying in bed the whole day is my pleasure and my hobby. I like to watch TV or just doze, not thinking about anything. I'm sorry to say I’m really enjoying quarantine. I don't have to see anybody. I can just stay home 24 hours a day in bed, my favorite place.” - Yuh-Jung Youn https://t.co/WD1xtndZkc

The vaunting of trauma and the rise of "trauma"-related deference norms has led to an avalanche of induced feelings of trauma and bad-faith assertions of trauma. It is, to borrow a term, "exhausting." https://t.co/GgnVVhqIxJ

The Police Chief of Brooklyn Center, MN just said he believes his officer meant to draw his taser but drew his handgun instead and accidentally shot Daunte Wright. The body camera footage was tough to watch. #DaunteWright

My journalism advice: always pick up the phone except when doing so means you're doing an interview while @CharlotteAlter eats ALL OF the leftover pizza you were planning on splitting for lunch. Also never write in the CMS
