If you're having trouble voting or sense something is amiss, the @washingtonpost wants to hear about it to shine a light on the problems voters are encountering. Many options to get in touch here: https://t.co/FNumePH6nz

what’s often positioned as wise universal advice is only a viable option for a select group of people. I wrote about some of the problems with “get an IUD”: https://t.co/NqHWHSDOGx

Judith Butler casually but precisely ethering the interviewer who claims that "some people" think TERF is a slur is a thing of beauty and a joy forever https://t.co/SDhbFhHKMx

A startup hiring gig workers to carry out evictions. What an encapsulation of where we are. https://t.co/hxcCM0sxsH

Quoted @katiezavadski

hello hello have you read my child's brilliant article: https://t.co/cwHY7oOgdS

Learned A LOT about TikTok from hanging out with @_sofiabarnett this summer--and now the whole world can too!!!! https://t.co/fgg4l7yqnO

"At Emerson College, part-time professors, who constitute slightly more than half the total faculty, [adjuncts] were told that if they contract COVID-19 at the outset of the semester and cannot return, their salary will be cut off." https://t.co/MmKWiuJ8Ek

Quoted @namwalien

I didn’t think I had the capacity to feel betrayed anymore. “less than 10 percent of plastic has ever been recycled.” https://t.co/rwSir9wnvs

The campaign to mislead the public outlined in this piece is staggering. https://t.co/qjPqxpE4qe

David Graeber’s concise, elegant Gawker essay “Ferguson and the Criminalization of American Life” is a text I teach, reread, cite and just think about often. A gem example of the work of the public intellectual.  https://t.co/uCOXyHuLqh https://t.co/jEkt6udlR5

Today we're calling on all print and digital publications to instate graduated payment schedules and rapid reimbursement policies to help freelancers during the pandemic. Here's what that means: https://t.co/XXUmq2KFqg https://t.co/8guxV9QFul

Quoted @stephanie_murr

Vicki Kennedy reacts to Markey’s viral ad that flipped the famous JFK quote: “It’s not been about what somebody can do for us — ever,” she told the Herald. “If you can figure out what it means to ask what your country can do for you, let me know.” https://t.co/S0ohIxk0GK

perhaps I can help: it means that the government can and should fund robust universal social goods through progressive taxation, thereby significantly reducing inequality and guaranteeing the material foundations of a dignified life to all residents https://t.co/ibKPfuOSlL

Quoted @mer__edith

Gig companies will stop at nothing to protect their exploitative biz model. Shocking piece shows @uber, @lyft, et al backed a targeted harassment campaign that doxxed and threatened @veenadubal and other opponents of prop 22 #ISupportVeena #NoOnProp22 https://t.co/haclaA8Vn2

Uber & Lyft are engaging in a targeted campaign of harassment against one of their most effective critics, a disgusting and anti-democratic abuse of power. https://t.co/jcVLUOBIAd

Missing for a week, police found Toyin only “by accident" when they went looking for Victoria Sims, a white woman. Shattering, infuriating story of misogynoir in police utter disregard for Black girls' lives. BLM means no more of this, too. https://t.co/yEPZMgwbx3 via @jezebel

Also, for more about Catherine Bauer, there's this terrific piece by @NCaplanBricker from last month: https://t.co/1Kivrq3lMd

The 1939 documentary The City, the brainchild of the urbanist Catherine Bauer, is a fascinating work of principled advocacy and a historical reproach to the decadent version of cinéma vérité, the merely observational: https://t.co/j5ykIrBFD7

"Every room has a view" ... so that "residents might look onto the river and dream a while." Loved this essay on June Jordan and environmental design by @23cschwartz https://t.co/DIiMqZ5Efi

Ugh, back to never tweeting

While I'm here, I may as well say that my own warmongering, antiabortion Massachusetts Congressman, Stephen Lynch, who literally *voted against Obamacare*, also has a progressive primary challenger. https://t.co/RMYesVyIFV
