One of my Facebook friends is featured in this image from the Maskachusetts State House (source of more than 50 governor’s orders this year):
My favorite part of this is the Statue of Liberty wearing a mask while holding a sign that reads “yearning to breathe free”.
These handmaids remind me to ask… What’s happening with the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation?
(Separately, the image contains RBG’s dying wish: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Does that wish, following an 87-year life, remind anyone of (the awesome) Sandra Bullock’s response to “What is the one most important thing our society needs?” in Miss Congeniality? “That would be… harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan.”)
- How will Amy Coney Barrett rule on the big question for 2021?
- Amy Coney Barrett will inspire Americans to get fit?
- RBG worked to maximize government while her husband worked to minimize tax payments
- Regarding governors issuing orders: “There is a little-known codicil in the Faber College constitution which gives the dean unlimited power to preserve order in time of campus emergency.”
- “Amy Coney Barrett’s Rise Is a Threat to Families Like Mine” (NYT, from an author who lives in California): It’s not often that I get gay married. The week I did it a second time was the same week we heard about the anti-gay proclivities of the Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, and some current justices called into question the very ruling that allowed me to get married in the first place. … You can see why the Obergefell decision was such a keystone for us, extending the same rights and protections to all when it comes to marriage. That even includes the right to divorce, which I did in 2017. … In 2018, I unexpectedly fell deeply in love again. Within a year, I was engaged, and we had a baby in late 2019, adding a daughter to my two sons. … A few weeks ago, we married in a tiny, socially distanced, masks-on event in an outdoor venue.
