Feeling helpless reading messages from my family about rising flood waters in Houston. Praying this storm doesn't turn into a #Harvey  level catastrophe.

Still don’t know who I will vote for, but I am inspired by the personal stories of these candidates. #DemDebate 

@JoyAnnReid  just said exactly what I was thinking re: Beto. He did so much better in this debate bc he doesn't seem like he's trying to win anymore. He's just being who he is & his ideas add value to the conversation. #DemDebate

I have never liked Justin Bieber as much as when he cites his mama's disapproval of ex-gf as a red flag. Yes!

It's a pretty bad #PresidentsDay  for POTUS when historians & scholars rank him dead last among all presidents, as in the worst of all time AND #TrumpColluded  is trending on his fav social media. Sad!

A local newspaper -- a tireless local journalist -- brought down Jeffrey Epstein, which led to Labor Secretary Alex Acosta resigning. Thank you, Miami Herald and Julie K. Brown, on behalf of every victim who was denied justice. Subscribe to your local paper.
