Still tracking #coronavirus. Here's the #Midwest as of this morning on the New York Times' #COVID19 tracking site, sorted by infection rate. For comparison, on the right you'll see the Midwest 7 and 14 days ago. ImageImageImage
Again, this morning (left) but with 21 days ago (right). Oh, how #Wisconsin has fallen. By which I mean risen. Gone up. Got worse. Whatever. You know what I mean. ImageImage
21 days ago would be right after the WI Supreme Court ruling ending "Safer at Home." In that time, we have doubled the number and rate of cases; 200 more people have died (a 50% increase); and we have lost our position as best in the region for controlling spread of the disease.

The #Rittenhouse case goes to the jury today. It probably won't come back today; regardless, I just want to put some of my thoughts out there for the world today anyhow. A small thread.
2/ I did not watch every second of every day of the trial. But I tried to follow along with good reporters and smart commentators. Most of what I see is skepticism that Rittenhouse will spend even one more day in jail.
3/ We can argue--and people have!--about whether that is the fault of the ADA pushing back against pre-trial rulings, a possibly-racist judge who doesn't know how any technology newer than a slide rule works, the general zeitgeist, whatever.

1/ Today, the #Wisconsin Republican legislature proposed eliminating the Constitutional offices of State Superintendent, Secretary of State, & Treasurer. What follows is a longish 🧵 I've meant to write for some time, addressing the utter contempt today's @wisgop has for voters.
2/ What sparks it is this piece of flaming-hot horseshit from @shaesortwell, from the @jsonline story today by @mollybeck:…
3/ The short version of the thread is, the GOP has spent a decade doing things like weakening SoState, Treasurer, and Superintendent. Then Sortwell has the gall to use the lack of responsibility and authority those officers have as a reason to amend the constitution.

1/24 Two reminders as we head into today. 1, the @wisgop attempt to do @WsconsinMC's bidding is based on a faulty premise and general dislike of The Poors, and 2, the GOP education budget is flat-out racist.
2/ We know the GOP is doing WMC's bidding, because WMC announced the agenda for today even before the Assembly leadership did. Great work here by @mellconklin:…
3/ Further, the attempt to override @GovEvers's veto on the $300 pandemic UI extension is based not on the realities of the Wisconsin job market, but on a desire to punish people who have lost good-paying jobs. @MikeBradleyMKE had a good thread yesterday:
