Any chance of Morrison focusing on real crises rather than the #BigotBill ? FYI it IS a race Scott.
⚠️My godβ€”the new #B11259 variant being possibly ~500% more competitively infectious is the most staggering stat yet. Also, #NuVariant has more than >2x the number of bad spike mutations than Delta. Here’s an updated πŸ§΅πŸ‘‡ Model by @JPWeiland matches up with graph by @jburnmurdoch

Behind even celebrity teenage shooter there’s a selfless shooter mom, taking him to gun ranges, staying up late to drive him across state lines to regional protests. It takes a village to raise a murderer.

#4Corners is outstanding investigative journalism. Govts threatening to cut #ABC funding simply don't want dirty political skullduggery aired. #obeids

15. Rose Trellis Egg. This is what the Clover Leaf Egg should have been. I think it does a great job of combining orderly and natural forms, like a real rose garden might.

LONG THREAD on UK Covid situation... cases, hospitals, deaths, long covid, variants, global - all dealing with consistent themes. TLDR: "living with" with high cases is bad idea. Especially while boosters and teen vax is slow and new viral treatments are on the horizon! 1/25

1987 I wanted to buy a $60K house and had saved $20K as a deposit. The bank rejected my mortgage application because I was a single female. Employed but single. Restrictive lending. #4Corners
