Between 1993 & 2017, total freeway lane-miles in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas increased by 42% (31% more than the population growth of 32%). So, free-flow on highways resulted, right, DOTs? Wrong: congestion skyrocketed by 144% (4.5X higher than the population growth).

2/7
And yes: 42% is 31% higher than 32%. Errors with percentages, especially regarding #elections, are made constantly. OK, back to crushing the “building your way out of congestion” logic: #Nashville’s traffic delay increased by 329%, or ~5.5X the % increase in lane-miles added. 3/7

1-A lot of friends have asked me what they should be supporting w/ 💵& ⏰. Even if you have a favorite candidate or 2, for every $ you give to them, you should also give $1 to an org working to build the long-term infrastructure that will ensure no more Trumps for the long haul
2- these are orgs that register ppl of color & youth to expand the electorate in places like Texas & Florida. They are orgs that organize with communities often overlooked, to build power & recruit candidates so our bench is more representive of the party we SAY we want to be
3- Going to slowly add to the list of orgs & local candidates on this thread. Encourage others to tag in the ones I end up inevitably leaving out. I’ll start with state-based long term organizing. There are SO MANY good ones.

UPDATE- THREAD #Mississippi
Ok folks, I have decided to update as best I can on Mississippi because there is (sadly) a lot of bad information out there. I have spent all day (literally) on the phone with prisoners, family members and media as well as messaging back and forth
I will say this- MDOC is NOT being even close to transparent with the media and MS Govt. In all my years of advocacy/activism I have NEVER not had a govt rep respond. Mississippi state reps do not respond.
With that being said, these prisoners can use positive thoughts, prayers and good vibes- what ever you got- send it on to them, please.

🗣Fair Vote for Mississippi!
Hester Jackson-McCray won the #HD40 election. Her Republican opponent Ashley Henley has now asked the GOP-controlled Mississippi House to overturn the election results.

Thread 1/9
#StandWithHester #DemCastMS
Representative-Elect Jackson-McCray recently responded to Henley's petition:
“I won the election fair and square. The citizens voted, the county certified the election and the Secretary of State accepted it and forwarded it.“

“I think if people read this notice she’s putting out, it looks like she’s arguing that her own party didn’t manage the election right. The election was run by Republicans. The DeSoto County election commissioners and the SOS are Republicans.”

This is Cynthia (9), Diego (6) and Esau (5). Their Mom, and only parent, was detained in Wednesday’s #ICERaids #ICERaidsMs. They’re staying with their Aunt (whose husband was also detained and has 6 kids of her own). They don’t know where their Mom is or if she’s ever coming back
Meet Stephanie (18)and her sister Ingrid(3). Their Dad and Aunt were taken right in front of Ingrid, who was sitting in the back seat of the car. She sat outside the car for two hrs until a friend could pick her up. Stephanie says Ingrid keeps asking “where’s Daddy?” #ICEraidsMS

A few more thoughts on James O. Eastland, the Senator from Mississippi of whom Joe Biden (in an effort to highlight political "civility") said, “He never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me ‘son.’”...
Photo: @nytimes
Eastland was literally born on a plantation in Sunflower County. His family employed sharecroppers, the economically exploitative system that took over after the abolition of slavery (Happy be-lated #Juneteenth).
Photo: James O. Eastland Collection, Univ. of Mississippi
He entered the Senate in 1942 and, yes, he was a Democrat. But a southern one--a Dixiecrat. There were intra-party differences, mainly along regional lines and Eastland represented the segregationist section.

Interesting outcome of the DePalma et al #PNAS paper will be implications for study & interpretation of K-Pg 'Event Deposits' close to the #Chicxulub crater. These are fascinating outcrops which *could* record the same processes as 'Tanis' but have proved controversial.. (1/)
Many marine K-Pg boundary sites around the Gulf of Mexico contain evidence for high-energy deposition by processes linked to the immediate aftermath of the impact event such as earthquakes, tsunamis/seiches. But a 'catastrophist' vs. 'non-catastrophist' debate has raged.. (2/)
The 'non-catastrophist' argument has centered on biostratigraphic evidence - i.e. that diagnostic Cretaceous #fossils are found stratigraphically *above* these deposits - and suggestions they are sequence boundaries/lags/hiatuses linked simply to sea level change. (3/)
