The Kerner Report, from 1967, named white racism—no euphemisms—as the root cause of unrest in the United States. It called for sweeping changes and investments in jobs, housing, policing, and more. Then it was shelved.

Sarah gave an example that was something like tweeting "Here are my 3 favorite kinds of bagels" and someone replies "You forgot poppy seed" and that seems like such an inane thing, but it is hard to describe how the sheer VOLUME of that can start to break you.

Texas’ radical abortion ban blocks pregnant people from accessing care. The law is unconstitutional. It must be stopped.

Magpie's snoring was weirdly soothing throughout today's writing session. This cubby is right next to my desk. (I'd have to lean closer to record the actual sound, and he's a light sleeper.)

My mom fought like hell to get mental healthcare for me when I was a teenager. Her efforts saved my life. I understand now, a decade after her passing, that she needed that healthcare too, desperately. But could only afford to pay for one of us. And that’s America.

A man who suffered a cardiac emergency died after being turned away from 43 ICUs in 3 states — all at capacity from COVID. His obit includes this plea: "In honor of Ray, please get vaccinated if you have not, in an effort to free up resources for non COVID related emergencies."
