β€œGiven the dam’s protected status, the decision to strike it would normally have been made high up the chain of command. But the former officials said the task force used a procedural shortcut reserved for emergencies, allowing it to launch the attack without clearance.” My god.

A Syrian dam was on a U.S. "no-strike" list. Some warned an attack could kill thousands. In 2017, a secret American force bombed it anyway.

This story is BONKERS and everyone should read it. This town should cease to exist. "In 2018 fines and forfeitures made up 14 percent of city revenue. That’s higher than some would want, but in the normal range. By 2020 it was 49 percent of the budget."

I really hope you guys will read this. I’ve been working on it a while. It really shows – in a sort of shocking microscopic way -- what inevitably happens when you incentivize criminalization of people for profit. (1/12)

Dr. King was a radical critic of racism, capitalism and militarism. He didn't die. He was assassinated. And many, including Regan, fought the national holiday we're not commemorating. If you haven't read, in entirety, his speeches, you've been miseducated & I hope that you will

Marriage is deeply meaningful and a social good, and every adult should have access to it. Thanks @jbarro , for both sharing your story and speaking so eloquently about marriage.

I’m straight and it took this gay man who loves his husband to express the true deep love I have for my husband. It’s become trendy to trash marriage for awhile now, and it’s always been gross. (Looking at you, Paltrow. β€œConscious uncoupling.” Please.) /2

β€œI not only love my husband; I do not hate him. Marrying him is the best decision I ever made, and it makes me so happy to wake up with him; to do exciting and mundane things together; and to build a shared life that I expect to continue for the rest of one of our lives.” YES.

Straights can badmouth their spouses in The New York Times and not worry it sends a sign they don’t deserve rights. We've only had marriage for a little while, so we’d better not. Never let anyone tell you respectability politics lacks upside.
