Eagled it two days running. Wordle 372 2/6 🟩⬜⬜⬜🟨 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩

“Nothing I see can be taken from me” ❤️ 🐠 🐠 🐠 ❤️

The last time the @Yankees  got a hit, Grover Cleveland was president. #RepBX 

That thing of where your teenage kiddos totally ignore your texts but react to your social media posts. 😂🤣

Drives me nuts even hearing talk of @TheJudge44  taking a giant offer (possibly closer to his west coast roots) and leaving the #Yankees  in the off season. Can’t let it happen. He is the next captain in waiting (first since Jeter) and face of the franchise. Can’t let it happen.

Great Morning Money top from @KateDavidson  on the impact of the abortion ruling on corporate America and the economy. It’s very significant and problematic.

New @politico  @MorningConsult  poll: 49% strongly or somewhat disapprove of SCOTUS abortion ruling while 40% strongly or somewhat approve. On prospect of nationwide abortion ban it's an even bigger blowout. 29% approve while 59% disapprove.

Happiest of birthdays to this dude, Father@martinsvillemar , who has put up with 𝐓𝐎𝐍𝐒 of crap from his little bro. And look for his book on his fight with the Catholic Church over the sex abuse scandal coming soon.

Managed to catch up on today's testimony and the not-really-all-that-veiled invocation of potential witness tampering charges at the end and ... well it's all pretty hard to even comprehend or process.

So our friends lost their sweet setter Pete today. He and some other dogs surprised a black bear while on a hike. Pete bravely protected the rest of the crew who got to safety. Pete later succumbed to his injuries. He was an older guy and went out a true hero. RIP PETE THE HERO!

Pretty incredible that we've gone from "hoax" and "totally under control" to a best case scenario of 100K to 200K dead from the #coronavirus . We lost 115K in World War I.

Give us your Norwegians, your Swedes, your Danes, your well-dressed skiers, yearning to give up free health care and mandatory paid leave...

This is true if you don't include 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1948, 1950, 1951, 1953, 1955, 1959, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1992, 1994, 1996-2000, 04, 05

Stop pretending you know what day of the week it is. Because you don’t. Nobody does.

INBOX: Goldman Sachs to give employees half day of full paid leave on Election Day. First time they have done that.

If you think America isn’t great you can leave but also America isn’t great and needs to be made great again.
