That whole narrative where people believe that John Krasinksi is a cop because he starred in 13 Hours and Jack Ryan and says that he loves the CIA? He doesn’t care for that “narrative.” (Well, maybe don’t encourage that narrative, Jim). (Esquire)

Amazon is crawling with fake products. (Wirecutter)

So much el-oh-eye-roll-el at these: Goop held a “makeup-free” party because of course, she did. And Tom Brady is such a pud. (Yes, I know that’s Dustin’s word for Buttigieg, but it also works here so I’m stealing it. Sorry, boss.) (Lainey Gossip)

Roger Stone was sentenced to serve 40 months in prison. I have several questions, but mostly, how soon will he be pardoned and also, why do we talk of prison sentences and the age of babies in month increments? This is weird, no? (Buzzfeed)

Tiny_bookbot is teaching the poetry of Robert Graves. That prompted her to watch the movie 1917, which in turn prompted her to review Graves’ Selected Poems. "In this regard, these poems…are suited to the uncertainty of the present day, and our own yearnings for certainty and meaning in a world that we suspect is corrupt." Are you familiar with the poets of the First World War? (Cannonball Read 12)

Just in case you haven’t seen this yet. MERCY.
