Popped in because I saw this in SoHo and they're even better wishes for the day

Oh, and as we say in my hometown of New York: Chag sameach to all who observe Passover.

The fact that Elizabeth Warren was a Republican is probably *why* her policy proposals on the left are so thorough and so good: She's seen the failures of the thinking on the other side.

What a thing to wake up to, you absolutely cannot be f**king serious with this website.
I don't care if you have a PhD or you've been Irish for 100 generations and you have 1000 thoughts about borders, there is a time for that argument and this isn't it. Absolutely do not fucking try this again, I have no patience for this kind of barbaric social media flex. Zero.
A brilliant young woman died last night and I had to mute two (2) threads in my mentions of people bickering over "Derry" or "Londonderry," I say with much feeling: F**k everyone who can't focus on what matters, whatever nation you're a citizen of.
Good night. Here's to a tomorrow that's better for all of us, and our countries struggling with the past.
Early story on the death of Lyra McKee. She was so accomplished at such a young age, what a loss. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/skbaer/journalist-lyra-mckee-killed-derry-ireland-riots
I should note I'm not Irish (I am American) and didn't know of the political sensitivities in the use of Derry or Londonderry as the town's name. I just used what was in the Telegraph story.

I learned this from @Jake_Hanrahan's tweets, he's a journalist on the scene. I knew Lyra only as a sweet, funny presence on Twitter and it feels like a loss. She was only 29, just a kid really, but always seemed to be in the thick of a good story. https://twitter.com/jake_hanrahan/status/1119032532769619968?s=21
As opposed to incredible Nazis
In one tweet, tell me what you believe Twitter’s executive leadership needs to do to fix the fact that Twitter is a vector for various forms of abuse with very serious consequences. Like, let’s say, credible Nazi death threats for example. Keep it simple. But I’m curious. Go.

At night, too, Notre Dame presides over haunted little medieval streets
Some snapshots of Notre Dame over the years (all my own). It's impossible to overstate how that spire reigned over the center of the city.
 
beautiful, and now quite sad, pictures.
