If you're trying to understand the bizarre Arizona "audit," here's the guy to follow. Just scroll his feed. Outstanding reporting and analysis.
While true, this also implies that the hand count was more accurate than the canvass. Which is not an angle that should be taken either.

For months now, I've received more emails than I could count from people saying, "Just wait for the Arizona recount." Ohhhh, "It will change EVERYTHING," I was told. Turns it changed 360 votes. I suspect the emails will now read, "Sorry I was so wrong about all that."
The GOP’s recount of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million votes has Biden’s lead GROWING by 360 votes (Biden +99, Trump -261) over the official tally kjzz.org/content/1719314/ari…

I agree! I also think Melissa DeRosa has questions to answer.

Try Facebook Marketplace, you said! CL is too scammy, you said! I posted a couch today on Facebook MP. In ten minutes, I was contacted. "Sara" wanted to buy it. In broken English, she claimed to live nearby, but had an out-of-state area code. She asked for my personal details.

I tell her I want to verify this is a real buyer, and I've had some bad experiences on Craigslist. She writes back, "Okay part of post is fake, but I want to check for safety." Sends me a google voice code "so she can verify." What, in the world, is this about?

Are all Craigslist offers just scams? I’m selling a few things there for the first time. It seems… sketchy.

A five-week national campaign? Doesn't that sound like heaven? We break down all things Canadia at 1pm on Connections.

I do not believe, for a single second, that "Tom" is a real person and not some ham-fisted actor who went a little too far with those glasses.
"Hang Time" restaurant in Texas kicked out a family for wearing masks even though they have an immunocompromised child.

All of the opprobrium about masking, all of the intensity... that all goes away when kids can get vaccinated, right? We can have parades heralding the end of the culture wars! Exciting times.
I am celebrating the (yes very early) test results that say the Pfizer vaccine is safe for young kids - by purchasing new shoes - the kind one wears out in the actual world - where I intend to spend more time when my kids are vaxxed.

"Making young women hate themselves has always been a highly lucrative business — and the only new thing here is the technology they’re using to do it." Powerful counterpoint to the emerging concern about Instagram and social media. From @katrosenfield spectatorworld.com/topic/mor…

ROC tweeps: some local restaurant owners predicted that many workers would come back to their previous jobs when federal benefits expired in September. I'd love to hear about what people are deciding to do, and whether their wages / benefits have changed.

This is awesome.
Just had a young man come in before practice and quit, and I couldn’t be happier!

ROC tweeps: what are you seeing in the housing market? There are *some* early indications that a slowdown might finally happen. But it's still... wild.

Honest question: is there a difference between the protective immunity we gain from recovering from COVID 1.0, versus recovering from Delta variant COVID? More communication is needed on this.
Seems like one of those clips from a school board meeting
