This is a picture from 2009. It's Tim Lambert, Debby Borza, and me. This was the groundbreaking ceremony for the Flight 93 National Memorial outside Shanksville, PA.

"at a time of rising anti-Semitism, of callous comparisons between the Holocaust and Covid-19 vaccine mandates, a profound relief took over me when I saw Judiasm proudly celebrated by those at the highest levels of political power."

Really beautiful short piece about Judaism, symbolism, and milestones in the West Wing Playbook that just hit inboxes.

The number of people I know who’ve had to do 7 to 10 day quarantines with under-5 kids also sure fits this picture

My 2 biggest worries about the job market: 1. There are still 1.5 million women missing from the labor force (they dropped out and haven't returned). Many are women of color. 2. Daycare & education are among the **least** recovered jobs. Daycare -10% vs Feb 2020 Educ: -5.5%

Biden sounds pretty hoarse today but says he's "oK" and tested for Covid daily. "What I have is a 1.5 year old grandson who likes to kiss his pop," he says. "It's just a cold."

I worked on a lot of poetry pieces this year. Reviews, interviews, reporting. Both radio and web. I'm grateful for @npr. I'm grateful to Petra, my forever editor. Most importantly, I'm grateful to the poets. So as you wrap up 2021, may I suggest you pick up these books? A thread:

the jobs report is a monthly reminder that most people have no idea how the economy actually works and that nearly everyone in Washington masquerades pre-politicized claims as real interpretations of the data

I've said similar: 1) I don't believe we are as productive working from home; 2) for those who are vaccinated, health risks of COVID appear similar to other risks we accept; so, 3) we are coming back to the office in January (I'm already back). @ZaheerSri

The VP’s staff all suddenly moved to the front of the plane leaving us reporters alone and I thought for a moment, uh oh did some huge news thing happen?

The Vice President just sat down behind the wheel of an electric bus and honked the horn. A lot of money for electric vehicles and charging in the new infrastructure law.

Buttigieg asked on AF2 about 2024 speculation. “It’s 2021. And the whole point of campaigns and elections is when they go well you get to govern. And we are squarely focused on the job at hand. I am excited to be part of a team led by the President and the Vice President.”
