How to minimize coronavirus risk while protesting.
[Epidemiologist Ellie] Murray clarified her position: "Yes, I condemned the anti-lockdown protests," she wrote. "Yes, I support the #BlackLivesMatter protests. No, those aren't contradictory views. COVID is a public health emergency. So is racism. We need to fight both."
The Minnesota Bail Fund raised $20 million this weekend. Wonkette threw a hundred in the kitty. (Haha, kitty!) You? (New York Times)
