"Rational Republicans are losing the G.O.P. civil war."

Two Republicans — Miles Taylor, who wrote the “Anonymous” Op-Ed in 2018, and Christine Todd Whitman, the former governor of New Jersey —write about a plan to turn the tide. nyti.ms/3v3X8Gl
G.O.P. leaders in the House and in many states have "turned belief in conspiracy theories and lies about stolen elections into a litmus test for membership and running for office." nyti.ms/3v3X8Gl
"We cannot tolerate the continued hijacking of a major U.S. political party by those who seek to tear down our Republic’s guardrails or who are willing to put one man’s interests ahead of the country." nyti.ms/3v3X8Gl
This week a group of conservatives "are coming together around a political idea — the Renew America Movement — and will release a slate of nearly two dozen Democratic, independent and Republican candidates we will support in 2022." nyti.ms/3v3X8Gl
Democracy "is not a game, which is why when push comes to shove, patriotic conservatives should put country over party."

More than 700,000 people in Florida are barred from voting because they can’t afford the financial obligations stemming from a prior felony conviction. nyti.ms/3lkKmjO
How is this possible? In 2018, Floridians overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment restoring voting rights to nearly everyone with a criminal record, upon the completion of their sentence. nyti.ms/3lkKmjO
Within a year, Florida’s Republican-led Legislature gutted the reform, passing a law defining a criminal sentence as complete only after the person sentenced has paid all legal financial obligations connected to it. nyti.ms/3lkKmjO

“Nearly a year since the first shots were administered, world leaders have yet to put forth a bolder or more comprehensive plan,” notes @JInterlandi. nyti.ms/3EF43uk

"Having lost the White House and the Senate last year, Republicans appear intent on rigging the game in their favor before the midterms," writes the editorial board. nyti.ms/3zn7thd
Republicans have rejected measures to make voting fairer, more accessible and more secure. The party has been pushing laws that tighten ballot access — at least for certain groups. Now, there is a reform bill aimed at curbing the madness. nyti.ms/3zn7thd
“Put simply, if the new bill is enacted, more citizens will be able to register to vote, vote in person and by mail and have their votes counted,” asserted @marceelias, one of the Democrats’ top legal champions on voting rights. nyti.ms/3zn7thd

New from tennis champion @Venuseswilliams:

"It doesn’t matter who you are. You need support. You can’t divorce mental health from anything you do." nyti.ms/3liF0nK
"I am fortunate to have family and coaches who let me lean on them. For me, open and positive communication is essential," writes Venus Williams. nyti.ms/3liF0nK
"But it is incredibly frustrating to me that only an estimated half of the those who have mental illness get the treatment they need. As we confront the devastating impact of the pandemic, support for our mental health is more urgent than ever." nyti.ms/3liF0nK

Reflections on 9/11:

“America launched a bad-faith global crusade to instill democracy in the Muslim world and ended up with our own democracy in tatters,” writes @michelleinbklyn. “We thought we knew what had been lost on Sept. 11. We had no idea.” nyti.ms/3E4nWe1
"Time can attempt to heal all wounds, but 20 years later the tears still come unexpectedly and the smell of jet fuel lingers. Please do not forget what happened to America on that day and the people who were lost forever." #NYTLetters nyti.ms/3hoQ1CO
"People of my generation will never know again what my children’s generation only tasted: an innocence and obliviousness about threat and danger," writes @CharlesMBlow. "I am — we all are — covered forever with a bit of the ash from those towers." nyti.ms/38VKkYv

President Biden is right to order tighter vaccine rules, which he did for roughly two-thirds of the nation’s work force on Thursday. “We’ve been patient,” Mr. Biden said to holdouts. “But our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.” nyti.ms/2VxYKep
Vaccines have proved to be both incredibly safe and stunningly effective. Nearly two-thirds of eligible Americans have accepted these facts and done their part by getting fully vaccinated. nyti.ms/2VxYKep
Right now, the list of the very sick and the dead is made up almost entirely of the unvaccinated. nyti.ms/2VxYKep
