iPhone : That the headlines are "people are looting the richest districts of #Chicago" and not "police shot a child then militarized his block" says volumes. If you are mad about the first headline and not the second, we know volumes about you. #BlackLivesMatter #DefundCPD

Twitter for iPad : Facebook knows QAnon is a potential terrorist threat, including to its own employees. Its not a hard decision to ban them, yet Facebook is still struggling to decide and its employees dont think theyll get it right. nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news…

Twitter for iPad : Older women tend to live longer and live alone. For some, a pandemic that encourages sheltering in place leaves them feeling "entrapped" and "like a hermit." 19thnews.org/2020/08/how-th…

Twitter for iPad : Awful to read, but so brilliantly written. Standing with my colleagues of color across the public radio system. WE need to be the next line of station/network leadership. It’s time. twitter.com/marissanne2011…

Twitter for iPad : every person who relapses say's its "humiliating" to come back and count days, as someone who relapsed in 2015, I wish we could do away with that. relapse is the most normal thing about being an alcoholic/drug addict. it's the bravest thing to admit defeat and try again

iPhone : Trump has a personal henchman basically ripping the wheels off the postal service’s trucks to keep them from potentially carrying ballots to or from people’s homes, and Democrats’ public message is meet us in the middle.

iPhone : “It called to mind something the former CIA acting director Michael Morell said… ‘This is the only time in American history when we’ve been attacked by a foreign country and not come together as a nation. In fact, it split us further apart.’” nytimes.com/2020/08/08/mag…

iPhone : The Postal Service has informed states that they’ll need to pay first-class 55-cent postage to mail ballots to voters, rather than the normal 20-cent bulk rate. That nearly triples the per-ballot cost.

iPhone : BREAKING: Postmaster General Louis DeJoy displaces the two top executives overseeing day-to-day operations, and reassigns 23 more postal executives, centralizing power around himself as delays grow at USPS ahead of mostly vote-by-mail election.

Twitter for iPad : This is the most jaw dropping list of corrupt expenditures I have ever seen and I work in Hollywood twitter.com/igorvolsky/sta…
