I think my new policy for Twitter is gonna be: If your account is 100% politics, for either side, that's a block. Real people have slightly more interests and more going on in life, or should.

Absolutely ridiculous to red flag this race. Just handed the title to Verstappen. #SaudiArabianGP

Kind of wild that the entire #SaudiArabiaGP will happen while ESPN is talking about the CFP rankings and bowls.

With OSU's loss, I am forced to be an Alabama fan today. 😁 #RollTide

Congrats to the Big 12 for continuing the circle of suck and keeping the conference out of the CFP yet again.

congratulations, you’ve reinvented the Magdalene laundry. I give it two years, tops, before predatory evangelical adoption services get involved to “incentivise” single mothers giving up their kids and twenty before we find the first child bones in the gardens.

Here’s the list of books now banned from classroom libraries at Leander ISD, a suburban district outside Austin. The physical purge began Monday.
After a year of "review" Leander ISD in Texas has now banned 11 books from its optional book club reading lists -- and will be proceeding to ensure no student has access to them in classroom libraries. A profound shame. #FReadom

This is a must read.
How do I begin to unpack how deeply disturbed I was by yesterday’s Supreme Court arguments?   Justice Sotomayor spoke for so many of us with this question. She spoke for me. In September, I had a miscarriage requiring an emergency abortion procedure — (tw // miscarriage)

This is actually brilliant from the perspective of cybercriminals. People that would happily insert a random CD into their computer are out there. A lot of them.

I read this tweet and had to Google it to check. I am guessing affordability weighs heavier than the other factors on their list. (Unless you count the expense of heavy-handed speed enforcement on 121.) Still, a complete joke.
The New York Times listing Euless, Texas as the best place to live in the United States is incredibly funny to me. Have the folks at NYT ever been to Euless? I grew up on the border of Euless and avoided driving through the town because their cops love to pull people over.

Hope you all are ready for the discourse to somehow get even worse. #Yalliban
If there was ever any doubt as to “Is the Texas Public Policy Foundation a Christian nationalist org who wants to tear down public schools?”, well fundraising letter from CEO Kevin Roberts answers it.

Least surprising news I have heard today. But its early!
A North Texas man who is facing federal charges of assaulting police officers during the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol is running for office as a Republican. fox4news.com/news/north-texa…

Just back from Mexico, and frankly surprised by how many maskless people are in the arrivals area at Terminal D, @DFWAirport. #COVIDparty

Tate Myre was 1 of the 3 students killed yesterday at Oxford High School in Michigan and was shot while trying to disarm the shooter. A star running back and linebacker on the football team, this was him 4 days ago on a recruiting trip to Toledo. Just sickening.
Had a great time at the Toledo game yesterday. Thank you @RickyCicconeUT @ToledoFB for the invite! @ReggieWynns @TheD_Zone
