SMART: In a fundraising appeal, @TheProspect estimates that it costs $1,965.58 to produce an average story, not including "insurance & legal fees, rent or printing costs, or anything other than the hours members of our staff worked so that our readers can get it for free."

"Today’s low-wage workers, shattered by collective trauma, have similarly been punched once too often, after being exalted all too briefly as America’s backbone." For #LongreadsTop5, @provenself highlights @ddayen's piece on why workers have had enough: longreads.com/2021/12/03/the…

We've spent nearly a decade building a bipartisan, filibuster-proof coalition to reform the military justice system. It's absurd to me that four men—in a back room with the door closed—could try to subvert the will of so many other members to deny justice. time.com/6125194/defense-bil…

I'd put this issue up against anything released by a U.S. magazine this year. And there's more to come. This work isn't possible without your support. Thousands of you have become members, and we want to get another 800 or so by the end of the year. prospect.org/membership

Great piece - lots of specific actions and policies in here that the administration could be pursuing since they don’t require legislation
Pete Buttigieg is definitely getting himself on TV, but he's not doing much of value to ease the supply chain crisis, says @revolvingdoorDC's @DRBoguslaw and Dylan Gyauch-Lewis. He isn't using the Transportation Department's tools to fix the problems: prospect.org/infrastructure/…

"Walsh and Buttigieg have ties to ride-hail companies: Walsh’s former labor adviser is now a registered lobbyist actively lobbying DOL for Uber, while Buttigieg made headlines for marching with Uber drivers on a picket line before fundraising with an Uber executive weeks later."

A lot to disaggregate with Omicron: raw transmissibility, immune escape, and potential for reinfection. In early data, the first seems below Delta, the second perhaps partial and very relevant, and the third pretty high: wsj.com/articles/scientists-…

And then you have to add potential for symptoms, deadliness, effect on people without antibodies, etc. on top of that
