Good morning! Pour yourself a strong cuppa Joe because it's Infrastructure Week —we mean that in a good way— and The Former Guy attacked the GOP at [checks notes] a RNC-Donor Meeting, and our bloggers tell us in so many ways that the world has gone wacko and it is only Monday! We are not being half-hearted.

The Carpentariat presents a new target in our (cancel) culture wars!

Bonus Track: Because we're all about culture, The Louvre Museum has digitized the entire collection and put it on line for our quarantine viewing pleasure.

Can you help us out?
