Exclusive! This Woman's Keurig Nightmare Is Going Viral! Tabs, Fri., Jan. 7, 2022
Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick and his partner were both Trumpers. After his death a year ago today, the day after Trump sicced his thugs on them, yeah, she's not such a fan anymore. Also she says Lindsey Graham was a dick. This writeup is rough. (MSN) Even worse, this Mike Fanone profile; all his cop colleagues think he's a plant.

Mike Lindell is a journalist, and also John the Baptist, and his religion forbids answering House January 6 Select Committee subpoenas. Liz lawsplains us at ATL, AND IT IS A LOT.

Sure, he lived and voted in New York (in 2020!) but former New York Times columnist Nick "Kristof’s attorneys say that his vision of Oregon as his home more than qualifies him under the state Constitution’s three-year residency requirement for its governors." (Politico)
Men surgeons are worse at their jobs, which is "cutting people open and not having them die," than are women surgeons, and they're even worse at their jobs when their patient's a woman, but HAHA women surgeons don't get promoted. BRB never having surgery again. (USA Today)
This is a pity but probably true for now: Travel writing is too synonymous with exoticism and othering and colonialism and whatnot for it to be anything other than suspect for the moment. Also, judging just by the description of the current Granta issue, it sounds like we may be living through a particularly sour and mordant era, in which things that are joyous are suspect or frivolous and Emma Goldman Herself gets shit on for being a flibbertigibbet. — The Critic
