I'm certainly more inclined to support Silicon Valley Bank "bailout" for greedy idiot startup CEOs due to "the Fed did it" (clearly am going to have to read many more splainers) than any of the other possible reasons, but anyway cool job "the Fed."

Feel like they kind of buried the lede on this story about the adjudged mentally incompetent man arrested for threatening to kill all the gays and transes and also Joe Biden, Gretchen Whitmer, and the FBI:

What is a "tradwife"? It's this gross fundamentalist Catholic (or other) cosplay of Nazi Volk homemaking. (Vice)

If you're too old to know who the Red Scare girls are — putative, unconvincing leftists — you're not alone, but they're just cold throwing parties with Roger Stone now, for freedom. (Daily Beast)

For the opposite of shitty antifeminists, I love this story very much: Hollywood and Judy Blume, together at last. — Gift link New York Times

"Gannett: We're better than Alden!" is not a terrific motto, and it's almost not even true anymore, because woof. Joshua Benton eats its face off at Nieman Lab.

Samuel Gompers licks my face. Science says I am very tasty and also full of cat germs. (Scientific American)
