United Kingdom: Their package delivery man is named Tim. He’s deaf. Tallulah and Tim developed quite the friendship over the lockdown. Tallulah’s mom taught her to sign. She made Tim a “thank you” that he displays on his truck proudly. Humanity.🌎❤️pic.twitter.com/ADGk6pcjp2

I feel like you could get away with just relabeling a lot of the Confederate statues, because the likenesses aren’t that great. Just say Stonewall Jackson is Dave Grohl now, who cares.

Any organization that justifies bringing workers back into offices by touting their hand sanitizer and desk spacing is completely unserious. Show me your HEPA filters and ventilation system diagrams. Is your AC recirculated? Where is the air flow? What CO2 levels do you reach?

@betogilardino Anthony J.: “Engineers designed new sides for the sidewalk to help with wind resistance but didn’t take into account the EXTREME sound it creates when wind passes through it. The bridge sings crazy songs now it’s so trippy. It hurts the ears and unbearable it’s that loud.” pic.twitter.com/GWdVia1GNS

Scholars have warned Congress for years that we need to impose more aggressive checks on the president — to no avail, writes @steve_vladeck. Trump's George Floyd protest threats raise legal questions. Here's what he can (and can't) do: nbcnews.com/think/opinion/…
