Maria Ressa and the Freedom of the Press: 12/19/2018 Cartoon by Angelo Lopez
Maria Ressa exposed Duterte’s drug war in the Philippines. Now she faces a possible prison term – CNN
While the government has hardly been shy about its intention to go after both dealers and users, hard data on the number of killings has often been tough to come by. One indispensable source of information, both for the international media and readers in the Philippines has been the upstart news site Rappler, which is now facing a reckoning with the government it has been a dogged check upon.
Rappler CEO Maria Ressa and her company were formally indicted on multiple counts of tax evasion
last week, charges critics say are politically motivated and designed to silence independent media in the southeast Asian country.

Last night at practice, the mother of our youngest player was passing around an address book for everyone to add their information. Everyone except me. It was blatantly apparent that she purposely did not want to include me in her reindeer games. This mutha is a tRump supporter, and even though I put this fact behind me…it is obvious her true colors come through.
All the same, it made me feel like shit.
Anyway, this is an open thread.
