That cover is BEAUTIFUL!!! Wow.
In Vogue’s September issue, @serenawilliams prepares to say farewell to tennis on her own terms and in her own words. “It’s the hardest thing that I could ever imagine,” she says. “I don’t want it to be over, but at the same time I’m ready for what’s next” vogue.cm/g773XK3

Wow. This makes me think of Louise Erdrich's recent novel Future Home of the Living God, in which women are abducted, imprisoned, and forced to bear the leftover embryos from fertility clinics.
Overturning Roe didn't just impact abortion; it may also threaten the ability of people to have babies using fertility treatments. My latest for @BW, part of a broader must-read issue on the scaling back of women's rights in the US. bloomberg.com/news/features/…

I appreciate his optimism, but I don't think it's likely.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger on CNN: In 10 years, "you're not going to be able to find a single person that admits to supporting or voting for Donald Trump."

Don’t tell us “both parties are the same” when one party unanimously votes to report white supremacists in the military, and the other unanimously votes that we shouldn’t.

Ok let’s talk about climate change and farm workers because today it was 91 out and 70% humidity in Rochester and our crew was loopy (dangerously so) by 11:30 am. One casualty of climate change is that A LOT OF FARM WORKERS ARE GOING TO DIE

Up to 20 million people are at risk of starvation in the Horn of Africa by the end of this year as a result of severe droughts. 13-year-olds like Fardhosa in Somalia are amongst some of the most vulnerable.

It's also a massive climate signal: nights are warming faster than days but people pay less attention to record high lows because it's less intuitive

Things are dire in libraries right now. I cannot emphasize enough how CRITICALLY important it is that you as a citizen and patron leave positive comments at your local library about how much you appreciate seeing LGBTQ+ diverse books in the collection, so we can combat this. 1/2
A library in Iowa has closed after nearly all of its employees quit due to anti-LGBTQ harassment against-staff, complaints about LGBTQ titles, and whipped up controversies. The town now has no library. iowastartingline.com/2022/07…

GOP is embracing Steve Bannon's "Precinct Strategy”, according to Politico. They are preparing to sow chaos in the 2022 election by creating an “army” of poll workers and Republican lawyers to challenge voters in Democratic precincts. #DemVoice1 #Fresh vanityfair.com/news/2022/06/…
