Fun Fact

31% of the average smartphone owner's Internet time is spent social networking – close to twice as much as email.

3+ weeks in, there remains more evidence for UFOs than there is for voter fraud

Hivemind: What are your going-out sweatpants? As in not "sitting on the couch" sweatpants but "walking in the park" sweatpants? IE, one step nicer but not constricting?

Read @mjchiusano's latest fiction in @GuernicaMag, about a gruff old politician on his last leg of the campaign in New Hampshire https://t.co/DCTiPlRzcX

Really happy to have this new short story in @GuernicaMag, about a cranky older lefty politician who realizes he’s gonna lose the nomination in New Hampshire and decides to let loose at the end... https://t.co/qYto2k9VH9

As @mjchiusano reports, there's "a wide — and potentially dangerous — gap between the way things look in the hospitals and in the outside world." Here's what it's like in Long Island hospitals and ICUs: https://t.co/DH1m3bKO3a

I absolutely love this @tcberenson story about RBG's iconic collars, but my favorite thing is that one of her most famous collars is from Banana Republic and another is from Anthropologie! Also she got one of them from a swag bag lol RBG, just like us https://t.co/Uxnfaod9up

A striking part of visiting LI hospitals over the last few weeks was the sight of COVID patients flipped on stomachs to increase oxygen flow, unconscious "Proning" is effective but startling, and one way ppl might be surprised at the dire scenes in ICUs https://t.co/eIsqqFYeLs

It's important to not lose sight of the ICU. @mjchiusano takes us right up to the bedside as COVID-19 ravages Long Island. I'd never even heard of "proning" before. https://t.co/DIz7aQETTc

Many people in ICUs can get better, thanks to new treatments and expertise and more staffing-power (when there's fewer patients). But the optimism is tempered. "I am so happy," one doctor said as she left the room of a patient who had been on a vent for 15 days but was improving

At one point I watched a new ICU patient get wheeled in, already intubated, and learned that the patient's son thought his father would be on the vent for just a few days. I saw other patients who had been intubated for weeks.

These descriptions of patients being "proned" are shocking and disturbing... you do not want to get Covid https://t.co/qDHzOYn3Ah

Most of us don't get to see these images of patients lying on the brink of death, often half-falling off their hospital beds, their gowns disheveled from flipping. 

That's part of the problem, per @mjchiusano

.@mjchiusano spent weeks traveling through Covid ICUs across NY. Read his haunting dispatch about patients who are "proned"-- laid on their stomachs to coax more air into their lungs-- for days or weeks, just lying there waiting to get better or die. https://t.co/yx0L3hJLGO

She was at LSU at the same time as David Duke. She grew up seeing crosses burning on lawns in her town. She went to segregated schools until college, where she regularly heard racial slurs. A pretty amazing story: https://t.co/swf4Z5oYeX

If confirmed as UN Ambassador, she'll be representing us all at the UN. What a life story. https://t.co/R70KAVScH6
