Today is a great day to take 5-15 minutes to advocate for emergency relief for artists and arts orgs in this unprecedented time of crisis (and hope!). Here are some places to start: https://t.co/2PW8vPZRdy #BeAnArtsHero

On Reiki and other "woo-woo" therapies: Of course these aren't substitutes for medical care. But the mind/body separation in Western medicine has never made much sense, and as the piece says, "being well isn’t only a matter of adjusting the body." https://t.co/v2q5U6xJSy

Remember, this, like the pandemic itself, is a GLOBAL problem. Anti-vaxx garbage is rampant in Lebanon, Pakistan, India, and other places. It circulates in languages that Facebook does not track and among people Facebook does not fear.

This sets up a situation where a lot of people who got checks from Trump won’t get them from Biden. An absurd, stupid decision. https://t.co/vzMk8yoGSf

Key testimony in 1/6 Senate hearing comes from DC Nat Guard Gen. Walker, who testifies he was restricted by Secretary of Army *the day before* to deploy any Quick Reaction Force (QRF) unless approved up the command chain. An "unusual" order, Walker says.

Joe Biden is the problem, not Manchin or Sinema. The tone being set from the top is one of cowardly leadership.

It's just really batshit insane that one of the guys on the call was the brother of the guy who incited a lot of the insurrectionists.

Throughout his career, John Roberts has worked fervently and passionately to dismantle voting rights protections. Curse George W. Bush for inflicting this man on the nation. https://t.co/Kn0zSo0d75

General Piatt says through DOD civilian that DC National Guard chief General Walker is effectively lying that Piatt worried how it would look to deploy Guardsmen to the Capitol on January 6. Walker: “there were people in the room with me on that call that heard what they heard.”

If you can't actually broadcast the Dr. Seuss drawings in the books in question because they are too offensive to air, maybe there's your answer.

Votes are still coming in but clearly many Republicans in the House would rather stop working for the day at 10:00 in the morning than pass a bill that strengthens Congress' ethics rules and reduces the influence of money in politics: https://t.co/79WP7ikbkc

@RonWyden @MikeCrapo .@SenBillCassidy argues that Becerra is "a very good Attorney General" and "very bright" but doesn't have experience running health programs or working in the health industry. "Being HHS Secretary should not be a learn-on-the-job position," he says.

Having a vaccinated governor decide to completely reopen Texas is like having a bunch of millionaire senators decide you don't need $15/hr. They can see the harm it would cause, it just won't affect them.

We are so close. We are so close I can almost taste it. With just a little longer doing the right thing, we could be there. But no. No. Some asshole in Texas is wrapping his slimy hand around everyone's ankle and dragging us all back down.
