There are going to be entire organizations coming into existence whose sole function is providing support to COVID orphans πŸ˜•
We at least have some admittedly-not-great sort-of-scalable framework for accommodating disabilities at least

Less so for dealing with an explosion in orphans
The scale of humanitarian disaster here is... f*ckin' yikes

It was bad enough when COVID was crassly referred to as a "boomer remover" and the people dying were largely elderly

This here has dramatic follow-on effects lasting years, if not decades
What's bullsh*t about it? Do you think the dead parents are still alive? Or that they didn't have 5 kids?
There aren't "14,000 dead from the jab" πŸ˜‚

Bye now
Several ppl I'm connected to on Facebook are now dead, including a local attorney who died of COVID last week πŸ˜•

Over time the pages get changed into "In Memoriam" FB pages and it's sad / disturbing / idk what to call it
And even if we assumed either of those numbers was true, when taken against the # of vaccinated it would mean the ratio of vaccine deaths is still dramatically less than the ratio of COVID deaths
I beat you by 5 seconds πŸ˜‚ see the tweet above this one, we were on the same wavelength down to the minute
Idk if I'd say that either. Ppl are so disconnected that it's not unusual to see a "hey Bob how are you?" post out of the blue -- at least the page change makes it clear the person is gone

It's just very strange. The thought of a "digital me" being around after I die is strange
Urgent gibberish, that for inexplicable reasons you insist on spamming across multiple tweets despite saying thing intelligible

Bye now πŸ‘‹

So if my count is right, this means that UNC Chapel Hill's:

➑️ Media Relations Director
➑️ Media Relations Assoc Director
➑️ Internal Communications Director
➑️ Vice Chancellor of Communications

have all been shown the door in less than a month?
That's an awful lot of sacrificial lambs

The Board of Trustees must've been hopping mad over how bad they looked in the Nikole Hannah-Jones tenure scandal πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
Which Republican spokesminions do y'all think will fill these (lucrative) vacancies?

And is this housecleaning driven by Chancellor KGus to avoid being fired, or by Clayton Somers's paymasters to prep his arrival? πŸ€”

It's currently the #2 Twitter trend in the US, that ship has already sailed

It might get, what, 1? Maybe?
They've got about 2 months before anything they pass gets blocked by the courts on Purcell grounds anyway

All theater IMO, but we'll see

One of my clients paid his not-small invoice 2 weeks early O_o

Honestly not sure how to process this news
More likely the former than the latter tbqh πŸ˜‚

It definitely does bring "please let me know who you would like me to kneecap for you next" vibes
Not suspicious, just exceptionally rare. That's why so many attorneys collect a payment up front and then bill against it

Wait, someone claimed @PennyRed committed defamation for using the word "vile"?

Wtf sort of defamation standards do they have in Ireland?? O_o
What is the court standard for objectively determining "vile"ness?

I mean holy sh*tsnacks that's bizarre
Looks like @Glinner got themselves suspended (presumably for being a vile bigot?) so sadly I can't mock them directly

I don't post 9/11 remembrances for a variety of reasons, but a friend of mine from undergrad (@wolfpackjew) reminded me I'd shared something at the 15-year mark

Still true at the 20-year mark, so I may just make this my perpetual 9/11 remembrance tweet… Screenshot of Facebook post: "It's become something of Screenshot of Facebook post: "The reality is our politiScreenshot of Facebook post: "And a significant number Screenshot of Facebook post, followed by graph: "But as
I mean America was pretty divided right after 9/11 too
