It's Friday!!! (Does that have any meaning in the post-work plague era?)

Laughing at you: Upyernoz deflates another idiotic article of conservative belief.

Outside the Beltway, James Joyner examines all the facts about clearing Lafayette Square Park for Trump's photo op. Conclusion: Don't believe the headline hype!

Scottie sums up current events.

And Humanizing the Vacuum on teaching & that "Critical Race Theory" you've been hearing about.

Another freebie from M. Bouffant.
