Juanita Jean’s: Texas church has a “Glocks for the Flock Gun Club” because Jesus.

Education Week: “Knowingly violate” state law with discussions about systemic racism, white privilege, and sexism in a Tennessee classroom and you could face a $5 million fine.

Speaking of which, your quotes of the day
"I’d rather have the people stay. I would rather because I like the numbers being where they are. I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn't our fault.” (Donald Trump, on whether 3,500 cruise ship passengers including 14 with COVID should disembark in the United States, March 6, 2020)
