In what’s hopefully a sign of things to come for this Congress, the Republican majority tried to put on a big show today where they thought they’d berate former Twitter executives and get them to admit that Joe Biden is making them shadowban Lauren Boebert or whatever stupid bullsh*t Matt Taibbi laundered for Elon Musk in “The Twitter Files.” Instead, the whole thing blew up in the GOP’s face as it became clear that Republicans were making the most demands of Twitter, and at one point, Donald Trump got mad about Chrissy Teigen calling him a “p*ssy a** b*tch” and demanded the tweet be taken down. For those of you playing the home game, that’s a clear-cut violation of the First Amendment, and yet oddly, none of the “journalists” doing PR for Musk brought it up. Funny that. (Daily Beast)

Acrackedkettle loved the lyrical writing in Maggie O’Farrel’s Hamnet, a fictional account of the death of Shakespeare’s son. "It’s a novel about unbearable loss and terrible grief which feels deeply, vibrantly alive." Are you ready for a cathartic plague book? (Cannonball Read 15)
