Four in 10 Republicans: Mass shootings are something we just have to "accept." But you know, "unfortunately." They're real broken up about it. — Insider
Cry with me: The mariachis who came to help heal Uvalde. (Gift link New York Times)
Lots of very smart (and even more not-so-smart) people have tried, over the years, to answer the question of what cops are for—whether they exist to keep us safe, to fight crime, to protect property, to enforce racial hierarchies, etc. I pose a simpler question: What do cops do?
Having spent many years observing cop behavior, reading news about cops, and occasionally even asking them for help, I have come to a pretty simple but comprehensive answer: They do what is easy, and avoid what is difficult. Seen through that rubric, much cop behavior suddenly becomes much more explicable.

Your house not selling? That's weird. Anyway, key home features that could add to saleability! (My real estate agent wanted us to paint our bathroom from orange to "neutral," which I interpreted as "blue." "Neutral, Rebecca, neutral ," she said. Better Homes & Gardens had previously told me blue bathrooms sell houses, and I sold mine in a day. TAKE THAT, really lovely and kind and wonderful and I love her real estate agent, who was wrong about the bathroom.) ( Better Homes & Gardens) The study at Angi has a fun chart for the biggest draw in each metro area. (Angi)
