How many musical genres can you count in this one performance? Before Chuck Berry, Little Richard and definitely before Elvis Presley, there was Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Blazing trails and singing praises. Born this day in 1915 in Cotton Plant, Arkansas.
An eye-opener that I watched last year airs on @PBS tonight. CODED BIAS chronicles Joy Buolamwini, a Ghanaian-American computer scientist based at @MIT and founder of Algorithmic Justice League, as she fights bias in our decision-making software. So good.
If you believe in a power greater than you, please hold the family of Mr. George Floyd in prayer through the trial of his murderer, Police Officer Derek Chauvin. The family will hear character assassination and details of their loved one’s murder. Horrific. Hold them in light.
Tom, I loved writing NEW GODS with you. I’m upset that the saga of Barda, Scott, Granny, Highfather and The Furies ends this way. Diving into Kirby’s Fourth World was the adventure of a lifetime. That can’t be taken away. Thank you for your friendship. And remember... #DarkseidIs
One of my favorite performances in one of my favorite films was given by DMX. If you haven’t seen BELLY in a while or at all, gift yourself with his talent in that film this weekend. #RIPDMX

This needs to happen on EVERY lie. It's up to the press to do this EVERY time. Go hard, y'all. On EVERY lie.
A handy household tip for those who need to get zip ties off of your bread, bags of apples, Doritos and other everyday things that one might need to remove zip ties from.
