Oh wow…I am thrilled!

Kamala Harris is Biden’s choice for VP…

I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate. Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.

Joe Biden is a leader who can unify the American people, because he's spent his life fighting for the American people. And as president, he will build an America that lives up to our ideals. I'm honored to join him as our party's nominee for Vice President, and do everything it takes to make @JoeBiden our next Commander-in-Chief.

I feel terrible for the young men and women who worked their whole lives to get good enough to play their sport on a national level but no game is worth their health. No shocker that Trump wants them out on the field. • #bigtenfootball #collegefootball #ncaa #ncaafootball #collegesports #ncaasports @bigten #bigten #coronavirus #covid19 #quarantine #lockdown #trumpvirus #trumprecession #votehimout #politicalcartoon #nocollegesports

Today I've been wondering how some monks living in Winchester 1000 years ago got their nicknames, including: Stephen the Decrepit Godeman the Stammerer Ælfric the Human Ælfwig the Woodpecker 🐦 Leofric the Fat Byrhtric the Black Osulf the Dwarf Wulfsige Pikel (young pike 🐟) Godeman the Old Lyfinge the Bald Byrhstan the White Wulfgar the Lamb 🐑 Ælfstan the Lame Æthelric the Hairy (@BritishLibrary Stowe MS 944, ff. 18v-21v)

I think y’all can guess which nickname I fancy the most…

I wanted to end this on a powerful note:

    Happy Wednesday JJ. At least the news has some good bits – and really good ones! I heard on teevee Auntie Kamala will have Karine Jean-Pierre for campaign manager? I think that’s what I heard but can’t find any stories. She’s bad-ass!!!
