Tuesday Tabs and Takes
- Via The Atlantic: Gen Z Never Learned to Read Cursive. Maybe it is because I have always had bad handwriting (my first bad grade was in the 4th grade and it was in handwriting and I did not want to explain that grade to my father) or because I pretty much shifted to mostly printing after taking drafting and architecture in high school or simply because technology moves one, but I simply cannot get spun up about cursive.
- The headline amused me (Via the Daily Beast): Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Relegated to Second Row at Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral. Oh Noes!
- Via the NYT: Trump’s Former Accounting Firm Begins Turning Over Documents to Congress
- Via the NYT: Majority of Latino Voters Out of G.O.P.’s Reach, New Poll Shows
- Score one for (or is it against?) migrant dumping stunts (via the NYT): After Texas Sent Him to Washington, One Migrant Launches a New Life.
- While we may take segregation by sex in sports too far, having had high school boys who played sports makes me think that this piece is off the mark. Via The Atlantic: Separating Sports by Sex Doesn’t Make Sense.
- Not a good look via WLBT: Gov. Reeves tells Hattiesburg audience it’s ‘great day to not be in Jackson’.
- Via the NYT: ‘A Crisis Coming’: The Twin Threats to American Democracy. Where have I heard this before?
Two of the past four presidents have taken office despite losing the popular vote. Senators representing a majority of Americans are often unable to pass bills, partly because of the increasing use of the filibuster. Even the House, intended as the branch of the government that most reflects the popular will, does not always do so, because of the way districts are drawn.
