#Novel coronavirus- a cautionary tale: the thread  

Heavens to Dickens, look at that data! You may have noticed a bit of Twist, Oliver. As we opened a new chapter into stage 3 with hope, the COVID case counts have been fast and furious the past few days. (1/5)
So, what can explain this #TaleOfTwoCities?   Not to be a #MobyDick, it seems that during stage 2, not everyone had their #SenseAndSensibility. Many of the recent cases can be traced back to gatherings and parties during stage 2. (2/5)
As we step forward in this #BraveNewWorld of stage 3, we must keep up the good work that has allowed us to get here. Try to limit your contacts, especially for indoor gatherings. Stick to your exclusive circle of 10 or less people. (3/5)

As Confederate statues come down, I'm reminded of what still needs to go up. Encourage @Reagan_Airport & @Amazon to memorialize those enslaved at Abingdon: "The Virginia portion of Amazon’s HQ2 should acknowledge what lies beneath" washingtonpost.com/opinions/2018/… #slaveryarchive #DC
If you visit Abingdon ruins today, you will be transported to the past - but not to the era of slavery -- to the 1990s. At this site of a former plantation, there is no mention of the enslaved, slavery, or enslavement. Signage is entirely about enslavers. #AbingdonEasyFix 2/10
Inside the old terminal's exhibit hall, at the bottom corner of one display case, you can find the only reference to slavery. #AbingdonEasyFix 3/10

1. This was a good find on the BLM DC’s own site. But what really caught my attention was their use of the word “Pods”.
“Transformative Pods... becoming stronger together.”
Want to know what else a “Pod” is? ...

2. “Pods” 👉🏻An egg case of certain insects ESPECIALLY A LOCUST or other orthopteran.

(There’s also Pea Pod, Pea = [P] deep state comms I’m not doing that now. Just tagging word for adding that later).

Locusts...
3. Revelation 9 you will find Locusts. Out of the bottomless pit.
Verse 11: they had a king over them which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew tongue is Abaddon... Greek tongue his name Apollyon.”
Brimstone = sulfur = acidic = symbol S = 19 = destruction..

On removing #GoneWithTheWind from HBO: a thread

I'm black and I'm 37 and one of my favorite books is Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I first read it in 8th grade when I was 13, and I re-read it every 2-3 years. I own the movie on DVD. I'm also very liberal. But . . .

removing #GWTW from HBO is the wrong move. It does not help the current movement, which is targeting police brutality. And this is coming from someone who is staunchly in favor of removing ALL Civil War monuments that celebrate the Confederacy, & banning the Confederate flag.
2/
So what's the difference? Confederate statues and flags seek to actively glorify a bunch of rebels and traitors. #GWTW has many elements of that too, but it mostly serves to tell a story of one woman's journey and how she lived through this unique era in history.

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.
