Tim sent me this picture. it has nothing to do with the entry -- I just like it. Re. the weather, it's a warm and thickly humid day (around 80F air temp, dew point 71F) with showers and thunderstorms associated with a ostensibly cold frontal passage with drier air filtering in.
So, tomorrow, the Northern Virginia D.C. suburbs go to "phase 2" reopening from the Covid-19 media pandemic.
Does this mean that we're done "sheltering in place"? Or does the Madam Mayor Muriel -- in between street riots and painting those same streets with big yellow letters -- and her phalanxes of medically and critical social justice theory WOKE base want us to remain burrowed done like mole-people?
I said OBESITY.
Where's Big Y'Eyemah?? There she is feeding ...
Oh, and I hear that a portion of Seattle -- a lovely city that I have always loved and where, in fact, I once lived a long time ago and have visited several times since -- has been taken over by destructive Antifa anarchists and related lunatics who have already appointed a Rapper-turned-Warlord of the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" (CHAZ).
Yeah, this'll turn out real well.

If it works like it does in Mogadishu, they'll be 19 more in the next 18 days. What a "TEACHABLE MOMENT" it is. I'm sure Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor will be towed in, if she hasn't already been, to hold racial consciousness-raising seminars for the fully and not-yet-fully WOKE indoctrinated.
As it is, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan couldn't be more WOKELY happy. As for Governor Inslee, he hears, sees, and says no evil. I hear that Robin DiAngelo is flying in to appointed the YEAR ZERO christening of the Ministry of WOKE Reeducation.
It's funny in an awful sort of why how three cities I've always loved -- Minneapolis, Seattle, and probably Portland --- have been quickly knocked out of consideration for me of where I want to go when I finally leave D.C. in 5 to 10 years.

In keeping with my two previous entries (see here and here), and because he's been so excellent on this, I'd like to feature another Tucker Carlson commentary -- this one from his show last night:
He's spot on correct about the vile hypocrisy of CNN and the rest of the WOKE illiberal Left media when it came to their mau-mauing the country into economically, socially, and psychologically devastating but, ultimately, mostly unnecessary open-ended social distancing lockdowns versus celebrating the WOKE Maoist Cultural Revolution of the past two weeks.
End of Update and of Entry.
