iPhone : #FallsChurch ballot drop box installed and ready for use. Ballots will be mailed soon. This box is bolted to concrete and under 24/7 surveillance. Safe and secure for casting your by-mail ballot in person to City Hall.

iPhone : On the first day of early voting, lines at the Fairfax County Government Center are out the door (but don’t worry, there are many more days left to vote early and more locations will open in October). #Election2020 #voteearly #vote2020 #vote

iPhone : No one should be intimidated while trying to cast their ballot.

Disrupting early voting is unacceptable.

If this happened in another country, what would you call it?

What happened in Fairfax yesterday should never happen anywhere in the United States.

iPhone : Most politicians do not publicly advertise that they engage in cynical acts of unquestionable hypocrisy.

That is what Lindsey Graham is doing here. twitter.com/lindseygrahams…

iPhone : Our friend Pamela just told us that “According to Jewish tradition, a person who dies on Rosh Hashanah, which began tonight, is a tzaddik, a person of great righteousness.” We found that very comforting. So strange to be eating these apples and honey with this sadness.

iPhone : “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.

iPhone : Mitch McConnell cited this quote as a “principle” in 2016:

“Once the political season is under way, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over.” That... “is what is fair to the nominee and is central to the process.” twitter.com/crampell/statu…

iPhone : To make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. Thats what I think a meaningful life is. One lives not just for oneself, but for ones community.

Hear some of the most memorable words from Ruth Bader Ginsburgs speeches over the years. cnn.it/2Eeva4P

iPhone : Days before her death, as her strength waned, #RBG dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a newPresident is installed." She knew what was to come. npr.org/2020/09/18/100…

iPhone : Last night Trump said he wants to use the federal courts to cheat in November by denying Americans’ lawfully-cast mail-in ballots.

This is an open admission that Trump hopes to use the Supreme Court to steal the election. twitter.com/atrupar/status…

iPhone : The Republican Senate needs to honor the nearly 200,000 lives we’ve lost & do everything in its power to prevent further losses. They need to pass the #HeroesAct, which we passed months ago, and they need to pass it now.

iPhone : Donald Trump was warned repeatedly by scientists, medical experts, and intelligence officials of the deadly danger of COVID-19.

Instead of sharing these facts with the country or using them to craft a strategy to keep people safe, he lied to us.

200,000 Americans have now died.

iPhone : Sometimes it seems that there is no hope, that it is impossible to stop injustice.

John Lewis was nearly beaten to death by people who denied his humanity.

He kept fighting, and he won.

If John Lewis can still say "be hopeful" after all he's been through, we can be hopeful. twitter.com/repjohnlewis/s…

iPhone : Appalling that on the night Justice Ginsburg died (Rosh Hoshanah!), Senate Majority Leader McConnell announces he will violate his own rule (and her express wishes) by rushing to replace her. A new low on a high holiday. twitter.com/politico/statu…

iPhone : Tragic news that unfortunately reconfirms the important fact that no one is immune to the effects of this awful virus. twitter.com/wusa9/status/1…

iPhone : Mitch McConnell’s hypocrisy is boundless.

He does not care about institutions or conventions or principles. He only cares about power — that’s all.

Whatever we do in the days to come, we must not underestimate Mitch McConnell’s cynicism.

iPhone : Ruth Bader Ginsburg devoted her life to the powerful premise that every person counts.

She was a warrior for justice, equality, and democracy.

Thanks to her, those who carry on these fights will have not only history, but also the law, on their side.

Rest in peace, RBG
