My favorite Twitter trend right now is those scolding people for being too cautious as though those of us who spent the past year and change wearing a mask and stopping the spread should trust those who mocked us for wearing masks and tried to overthrow the government.

Idaho's Senate and House passed this bill (SB1211) that would allow hunters and hired contractors to kill the vast majority the state's wolves.

The bill is now officially on the desk of @GovernorLittle. To become law, it only needs his signature. https://t.co/NoLDuKh75S

Semi-regular reminder that many of the journalists weighing in on Biden's tax policy are unbelievably rich and stand to be materially impacted by a tax on the rich. Reporters who are not affluent will have a much smaller podium.

For those who think I’m being too harsh or exaggerating, parents, particularly moms, have been the genesis of anti-vaccine misinformation & advocacy since vaccines were invented over 200 years ago. The largest anti-vaccine org in the US was founded by a mom who joined other moms. https://t.co/wMPBgSghui pic.twitter.com/be402uh2vm

When people say that 500K a year isn't "rich" in NYC, what they are really saying is it's a struggle on that salary to afford a nice home, nice vacations, and if you have two kids to send them to private schools that cost 50k a year. God forbid you send your kids to public school

“Unexpected”? Have these @CNN reporters EVER reported on vaccines EVER in the history of vaccine hesitancy since the beginning of vaccines? This is what I’m talking about when I say journalists have to familiarize themselves w the landscape before writing about vaccine hesitancy. pic.twitter.com/I9fwlTA5Fm
