Minnesota law enforcement, at its based level exhibits some intersectional issues often represented in fictional culture products like Fargo. Their police forces haven’t learned very much since the death of George Floyd. So many examples of bad faith below:

The week has started badly and tragically. Even the Suez Canal got blocked. but we should at least think about Spring Cleaning, even if we never get it completed. It’s enough to make you nuke a space hurricane, eat a pie under the covers, or buy a QAnon Sudoku decoder...

Everybody’s favorite cultural caricatures came out from beneath their rocks because they have nothing to contribute while we wait for the final chapter in the Trump era.

Full circle has been achieved, the re-manufacturing of misinformation using hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19 treatment, framing it as a “cure”, again. Trump fortunately has yet to return to suggesting household disinfectant injection, fleeing his presser before it got worse. x This is the best comment I’ve read so far about #TrumpPressConference #TrumpleThinSkin...
