Dinosaurs were doing well and could have continued to dominate Planet Earth if they had not been wiped out by an asteroid, new research finds. https://t.co/yB4yVZnIYc

Ah, the role of the unexpected in history! People think we are the masters of our destiny until the cosmic gambler taps us on the shoulder, his hand on the roulette wheel. https://t.co/YFkwY3UObt

The kind of girl you'd like to bring home to mother. Assuming, of course, that mother is Norman Bates. https://t.co/LFSe0SJGaV

This boy’s reaction when he met his hero. What an amazing moment! https://t.co/WhXu4Cio2s

This is hilarious https://t.co/l0dlDVzWsc

A really great segment! The ol' Obama charm never fails. https://t.co/fMBedgBQRp

Quoted @CNN

#FareedsTake on Pres. Obama's memoir: He devotes little time to the "obstructionist" opposition to his presidency and to himself personally. That may be because it would take him into deep dark waters that are different from the hopeful optimistic country he wants to believe in https://t.co/Phs7M2v4Re

Fareed Zakaria's assessment here is brimming with insight. Obama's basic decency--his desire to be liked, to see things from multiple angles, to believe that every problem has a solution based in reasoned discourse--blinds him to the irrational, vindictive fury of his enemies. https://t.co/K0w7SuZZQn

I know it's Italy, but it could be the Obersalzberg in Bavaria. Gorgeous photography. https://t.co/KiQZFsAJbA

Quoted @NPR

Donald Trump is already the subject of investigations by New York officials — and there's a chance federal authorities may implicate him. One thing is certain: As a private citizen, he'll no longer enjoy de facto immunity. https://t.co/vwcusp1M2h

Could it be this is why the orange monster is clinging so tenaciously to the presidency? https://t.co/mii5kzX1zL

Quoted @nytimes

Kyle Rittenhouse has been released from jail after posting $2 million bail. He was captured on video shooting three people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August and was charged with killing two. https://t.co/tEkIbYyiTW

One of the most dumbfounding things I have ever seen. Appalling beyond belief. https://t.co/BkCw9zpi0V

Against those who claim Trump's supporters are not demented fascists, I offer this video as Exhibit A in my argument that they are. https://t.co/f4XzxEPIxk

Quoted @MMFlint

People ask how will we turn 70M Trumpers around? We may not. But there’ll always be more of us than them. AND if we ensure their kids go to great schools & have great libraries & make college free, those kids’ll learn their parents have sadly been telling them lies & truth’ll win https://t.co/ySSe4c94g3

I agree wholeheartedly with Michael here. The current generation of Trump supporters is largely lost to their maniacal ideology. The goal should be to educate a new generation of Americans and prepare them for participating in democratic government. https://t.co/p0EaSqoVBh

van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”, Saint Rémy de Provence, France [Museum of Modern Art, NYC] Analysis of the crescent Moon and Venus, reveals that the painting captures the early morning hours near the Summer Solstice 1889 — just before sunrise. So for me, it’s “The Starry Dawn” https://t.co/3JJJdZZSmO

Awesome, Neil, thanks for posting this! I saw the original years ago and was struck by the three-dimensional nature of Van Gogh's Starry Night. It is more of a paint sculpture than a single dimensional painting. https://t.co/GdH5njGcql

Quoted @nytimes

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito told a conservative legal group on Thursday that government responses to the coronavirus pandemic have led to “previously unimaginable restrictions on individual liberty.” https://t.co/iPJChGmdbZ

Aren't Alito's comments the equivalent of agonizing over the arrangement of the deck chairs as the Titanic slips quietly into the icy waters of the North Atlantic? https://t.co/rB3gBUMwce

Quoted @washingtonpost

Opinion: Republicans never gave Obama a chance. I fear it’ll be the same with Biden. https://t.co/jdp8cADYZ2

When the President-elect's detractors are part of an insurgent fascist movement, there's no possibility of unity. Be prepared for more dysfunction and oppositionalism. The Republicans will do everything in their power to ensure Biden's failure, even if it harms the country. https://t.co/nk54o6eWkz

Quoted @Bill_Maxwell_

According to Trump's inner circle, he is depressed, out of money, and afraid of going to jail.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. https://t.co/U6Z9r5jZRO

Quoted @nytimes

When President Trump leaves office, he will lose the constitutional protection from prosecution afforded to a sitting president, making him more vulnerable than ever to an investigation into his business practices and taxes. https://t.co/0ZoKaRuY9k

Might this be the reason for his dogged clinging to his fading power as the sun sets on his dreadful presidency? https://t.co/lav8bZ7g5F
