Sophisticated readers know that a high volume of blustery Harder letters usually means the story is pretty great.

How city officials handed control of Rikers to the corrections union, which handed it over to gangs. A stunning and enraging investigation by @Jan_Ransom  for @NYTMetro 

Really interesting @Variety  story in the decline of China-Hollywood relations, and the absolute naïveté of the latter:

“I hate to say this, but if you’re not willing to go full retard in a Republican primary right now, it’s hard. The expectations are what they are,” said a MAGA operative involved in the Pennsylvania race. @Olivianuzzi ⁩ on Oz’s uphill battle.

NEW: A pushy Pennsylvania dentist. A former Apprentice star. A bogus deal for New York ventilators. And a dozen young, overwhelmed volunteers from Wall Street. Inside a chaotic -- and possibly fruitless --- Trumpworld quest for medical supplies.

Trump, about his then-newborn son, Don Jr: “What if he’s a loser?” Biden, to his troubled adult son, whose mistakes threatened to torpedo Biden’s highest political ambition: “Good morning my beautiful son.” Two very different men.

It's interesting to watch self-styled American populists get protective of the monarchy once a Black woman starts complaining about racism.

One caller told Adam Kinzinger to slit his wrists and “rot in hell.” Another hoped Don Bacon would fall down a staircase. Nicole Malliotakis has been inundated with angry messages tagging her as a “traitor.” Their crime? Voting for the infrastructure bill.
