Minneapolis and Denmark

My friend Fresca is, as a correspondent of hers wrote, “RIGHT THERE,” living and working not far from where police killed George Floyd. (Active voice, not passive: They killed him.) Fresca’s most recent blog posts are devoted to events in Minneapolis.

This is a good morning to look once again at Timothy Snyder’s On Tyranny. Snyder closes by quoting Shakespeare:

“The time is out of joint. O cursed spite, / That ever I was born to set it right!” Thus Hamlet. Yet he concludes: “Nay, come, let’s go together.”

"Let's go together": LOVE IT!
Thanks, Michael.
It's overwhelming, but I try to say some little something every day.

Elaine and I are going (together) to a march this afternoon.
