Thank you to everyone who reached out about my grandfather's passing. I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, and grateful to all of you for the kind words and sympathy. I wanted to share my eulogy, which, I hope, captures at least a bit of what made him so extraordinary.

I literally own stuff Wirecutter staffers have recommended to me. Yet they get paid less than the editorial fellows that @nytimes brings into its newsroom. That’s why I support the @wirecutterunion strike and won’t cross their picket line on Black Friday. nymag.com/intelligencer/2021…

The first prosecutor recused herself because one of the killers worked in her office. The second blamed Arbery for his own death, accusing him of an "aggressive nature." The third waited ages to arrest the killers. DAs did not want to prosecute these men. slate.com/news-and-politics/…
The correct verdict in a trial that might not have even occurred had a viral video not drawn national attention to the conduct of local authorities. washingtonpost.com/video/nat…

No wonder the defense framed Arbery's killers as *the real victims* here. That's obviously how Georgia prosecutors saw them—before the horrific viral video sparked nationwide backlash. From @Nikki_Lew: slate.com/news-and-politics/…

The Supreme Court will decide whether Republican leaders of the North Carolina legislature can intervene to defend the state's voter ID law. This is the second case this term that may give Republican state officials greater power to defend laws that Democratic officials oppose.
#SCOTUS adds one new case to its merits docket this morning: Berger v. NC Conference of NAACP, in which the justices will weigh in on an effort by Republican legislators in the state to intervene to defend the state’s voter-ID law. Here's the order: supremecourt.gov/orders/cour…

Note that Democratic state officials *are already defending* North Carolina's voter ID law. Republican legislators just don't think Democrats are defending the law vigorously enough.
Supreme Court somewhat randomly just announced it is hearing a new case: bid by GOP lawmakers to intervene in defense of NC voter ID law that Democratic officials are already defending

The first and only Supreme Court opinion of the day is in Mississippi v. Tennessee, an interstate water dispute. No action on Texas abortion. supremecourt.gov/opinions/21…

If you’d like to learn more about my grandfather’s extraordinary life, I encourage you to listen to this oral history recorded 14 years ago.
Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. In 2007, my grandfather gave an oral history of his experience surviving the Łódź Ghetto, Auschwitz, and the Ahlem concentration camp. As far as we know, it's the only time he ever told this story. You can listen here: collections.ushmm.org/search…

As @mjs_DC shows, stolen federal courts = Democrats essentially cannot govern even when they win elections = we are *already* effectively living under single party rule. slate.com/news-and-politics/…

The Fifth Circuit's decision blocking Biden's vaccine mandate gave courts a roadmap to throw out an endless array of laws by recasting any challenged regulation as "regulating inactivity." We should be alarmed. slate.com/news-and-politics/…

In some police forces, a small number of officers are responsible for the vast majority of dog shootings. A vital @cjciaramella investigation found that just *two* Detroit officers had shot more than 100 dogs. reason.com/2016/11/15/the-de…

Recently, officers in Prince George’s County invaded a woman's house and brutally tortured her dog for no reason.
The Prince George’s County police barged into a woman's apartment without a warrant with their weapons drawn, then tortured her dog by repeatedly shooting and tasing it. She had to pay $800 to have it euthanized. washingtonpost.com/local/pub…

The 8th Circuit panel in this case is quite conservative—all Republican nominees. It found that officers who shoot non-threatening dogs violate a "clearly established" right. Good to see courts moving away from broad deference toward dog-shooting cops. ecf.ca8.uscourts.gov/opndir/…
