- The editorial board of WaPo is correct: Michael Fanone deserves the nation’s gratitude. That’s not what he has gotten.
More than 150 officers were hurt battling the insurrectionist mob on Jan. 6; nearly five months later, 17 remained so badly injured that they were still out of work. Others may have sustained undiagnosed long-term head injuries, according to a therapist who has counseled D.C. officers involved in the events.
The reality-denying Republicans who have said the rioters were harmless tourists, or antifa, add insult to those injuries. In refusing to recognize the heroism of Mr. Fanone and other officers who defended the Capitol, and who protected the integrity of the election results and democracy itself, those politicians have disgraced their party and the nation. Their indifference to the gravity of Jan. 6 is an affront to the Constitution, to patriotism and to law enforcement.

- Via the NYT: Last Known Slave Ship Is Remarkably Well Preserved, Researchers Say:
The Clotilda’s final voyage was undertaken illegally because Congress had banned the importation of enslaved people more than half a century earlier.
After the schooner arrived in Mobile and transferred the captives to a riverboat in July 1860, the Clotilda’s captain, William Foster, burned and scuttled the ship to hide evidence of his illicit trade, Dr. Delgado said. The ship has remained in the same spot in the Mobile River ever since, researchers said.
