A few tweets:
This thread📌 about Eric Whitehead epitomizes the peril we are in from the anti-maskers. The link this nurse makes to other egregious behavior is not hyperbolic. These cops watched their colleague abuse several women and said nothing. That's the wrong side of the thin blue line. https://t.co/WAOdKTvic7

Be sure to check out that thread here…
I'm an ER Nurse in Seattle. Last night @SeattlePD officers came to the ER to obtain a statement from an assault patient. One officer, Eric Whitehead, blatantly refused to put a mask on while standing in a high-traffic hallway. There were covid positive pts in nearby rooms. 1/

The Post obtained hours of video footage, some exclusively, and placed it within a digital 3-D model of the building to map the rioters’ movements and assess the peril that lawmakers faced. https://t.co/jFIUU6hN36 pic.twitter.com/qr8JsLogbl

Under pressure from Trump White House, Acting Secretary of Defense has ordered NSA to “immediately” install Republican party ex-operative (and Devin Nunes ex-aide) as NSA general counsel, reports Washington Post.
With less than four days to go of Trump’s Presidency? Why?

On encrypted app Telegram, white supremacist groups are reacting to the arrival of conservatives from Parler with “playbooks” teaching members “how to recruit and radicalise Trump supporters” who are newly on Telegram “into violent white supremacists.” https://t.co/XTzF61q494

Please stay home and stay safe the next few days…especially.
One more link, in connection to that last tweet about the telegram app…
The cartoons are stellar today!! Here’s one for you!
Yep – sums it up nicely. We’ve got a huge entitled-white-men and women anger problem in this country. Directed mostly at POC and validated by a grotesque intensely stupid psycho minor celebrity who made it all the way to the White House thanks to our racist election system.
I’m tired of watching the videos of the riot. So far looks like the riots they planned for today are fizzling out.
This is the best thing:
Incredible! What a beautiful person Prince was as well as a musical genius. We lost him too soon.
Thanks for this – really good info. I’ve been limiting grocery visits to quick as possible in and out – never more than 15 minutes, but I should switch to curbside. I double-mask as well. Still fuming about the lack of N95 – why on earth can we not produce those? Ready and willing to take the vaccine, but worried I might not be able to get the second dose…..sigh. SMH – Cannot WAIT for the Biden admin to take control of this.
I resisted at first but online groceries and curbside pick up is the only way during this pandemic. Safer for you and for the grocery workers. I leave a tip under a rock in the car where the groceries go for the delivery person.
Great cartoons, JJ! “Sold my conscience years ago.” And the “Special food”/don’t tread on me. LOL!
