Hello, Friends. How are you? How has your week been? Since the kids are out of school this week, we have been using our mornings to explore off-the-beaten-path Normandy — and doing a lot of baking. This weekend, maybe we’ll visit a couple of brocantes we haven’t been to before, maybe do some bike riding, and Olive will head back to Paris (sad face). How about you? Any plans?
I’ve got a great link list for you this week. Here are a few things I’ve wanted to share:
-‘Nobody came, nobody helped’: From San Francisco to New York, violent attacks against Asian Americans have left the community reeling.
-Lindsey Boylan wrote about sexual harassment from Andrew Cuomo.
-The growing evidence that the Covid-19 vaccines can reduce transmission. (This is good news!)
-“Not all Southerners believe the lies about climate change trotted out by Republican politicians enslaved to the fossil-fuel industry.”
-The Prices on Your Monopoly Board Hold a Dark Secret.
-A profile of Sylvia Federici, the socialist feminist theorist of housework.
-Grandma and Grandpa sent a microscope set for Christmas and the kids love it so much.
Here are some tweets I saved for you:
-I wish the Democrats would push through as much as possible while they have power.
-An interesting thread about the idea of a “pandemic tax” we’ve all been paying. Click to read the whole thing.
–The country supports the Equality Act. Republican elected officials should not be fighting this.
-Have you seen coverage about this? This seems to have a typo — they’ve found the parent of 105 kids so far. Which is great news! I wish they would shout it from the rooftops so that hopefully it will go even faster for the rest.
–Double standards for women — especially women of color.
-A perspective I hadn’t heard before.
-A thread on the different agencies covering immigration.
I hope you have such a good weekend! I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.

I did see this article about the family separation. Wish it was already 500…
Oh man, Gabby. You nailed the subtle art of these weekly round-ups. Ending with that rolling stone headline, added the perfect cherry on top. The right touch of levity to all kinds of important and beautiful items. I almost missed it, but was cry-laughing as I read it out loud. Keep up the great work!
FYI the Lindsey Boylan link is going to the equality act Twitter thread instead.
I appreciate the heads up. All fixed now.
