I love this Hungry Gerald requiem for a certain type of Jewish waiter that has nearly vanished. Old-school NYers will relate.

It's not too late to decide to stay home for Thanksgiving. Saving the lives and health of loved ones is worth the awkward conversation or email, the abrupt change of plans, even the anger of those who refuse to believe #COVID19  is real. Help ensure we're all alive for Christmas.

How one of the most influential psychologists in research on human happiness ended up committing suicide. A haunting, nuanced, and brilliantly written exploration by @JenSeniorNY . One of the best pieces I've ever read in @nytimes . [Trigger warnings]

One of the most gorgeous photographs of Yosemite Valley I've ever seen, by Kelly Isaacs White. An instant classic.

The incredibly trippy-looking ocellated turkey, a relative of American wild turkeys that lives in Central America. "Ocellated" basically means "with eyes," referring to the eye-like patterns in the tail feathers. They've been listed as an endangered species.

I know we're all numb, but it is ASTONISHING to me that a President who hobbled both the CDC and the FDA in the midst of a global pandemic that has killed nearly 190,000 Americans is still in a contender in this election, instead of being perp-walked out of the Oval Office.

Now that it looks like Deutsche Bank disappeared Trump’s tax returns and scrubbed its servers, it seems like an appropriate moment to mention that Trump’s “special banker” at Deutsche was Justice Kennedy’s son (not mentioned in this recent news).

This is wonderful. [I fact-checked it and it's legit.]

If you ever wondered how the Germans simply went about their business, now you know.

This Mike Pence "prayer" of thanks to Trump is excruciatingly, stomach-churningly uncomfortable to watch. The ritual submission and exaltation is nearly pornographic. This is not America.

We're all reading a ton of #coronavirus  stuff, but each day I read a post or two that utterly stop me in my tracks. This was today's, from a doctor at Brooklyn's Maimonides Medical Center, via @avitalrachel .
