What a week, Crooks and Liars! We witnessed history being made as maybe for the fourth-time ever a president was the subject of an impeachment hearing. We won't know how it will turn out for a while yet, but for right now things are moving in the correct direction. Thank you for letting me be a part of your week, and thank you to the 28 or so bloggers who kept cool heads and yet gave us hot takes all week.

Green Eagle has a plan. Why didn't I think of that?!

Open Culture has the very profound speech that Sacha Baron Cohen gave at an ADL conference in which he emphasizes social media. Absolutely required reading and/or listening!

Shower Cap's Blog sums up the week as only he can!

Bonus Track: tywkiwdbi reminds us we live in an amazing world.
