“We have to engage even if we’re uncomfortable." Teachers in Minneapolis are grappling with how to discuss Derek Chauvin's trial with their students. But many say the court proceedings are too important to ignore, even if they raise difficult questions. https://t.co/OxXcuMR6V4

New Orleans is known for its Fat Tuesday celebrations: parades, parties. But a year after the festivities turned Bourbon Street into an early hot spot for the coronavirus, it’s a more subdued affair. Photos from New Orleans: https://t.co/U2VvA7aiwS

Can New Orleans Celebrate Mardi Gras Without Reckless Abandon? The annual Carnival celebration has been subdued by pandemic restrictions. “We’re trying to be responsible and feel like New Orleans, but it’s a struggle,” a bar employee told me. https://t.co/EE0gguJ56C

This is Monica Smith, a 45-year-old Indiana woman who was in a serious car wreck in 2016. She had health insurance. The hospital refused to bill it, instead pursuing her for $12,856. How'd that happen? Her story is the wildest medical bill saga I've seen in months. (1/13) https://t.co/K8K3SNlFsS

So many people I interviewed for this piece described elders as living libraries, walking dictionaries, breathing repositories of Native language and culture. The virus is destroying them. Tribes and activists are trying to stop it. https://t.co/e1uXIM3C0m

A grim picture in Southeast DC: children stuck inside for months to dodge Covid-19 but also gun violence and other risks. For low-income kids during the pandemic, “it’s not just the virus that is the problem,” one expert in child trauma tells @globaldan. https://t.co/J4PvVx13Rb

“It’s not just the virus that is the problem." While most children should bounce back from isolation and remote learning, those growing up amid other adversities, like domestic violence and poverty, face greater obstacles in recovering. @globaldan reports: https://t.co/UCCDMSNsie

I’ve written often on the mismanaged response to COVID-19. But for this story, I tried to get out of DC and show the collateral damage: how COVID surprised and then devastated a community of Pacific Islanders across the United States. https://t.co/DhF9gUbkvt (Thread.)
