32 Politics & Government "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" ripped into Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin's executive order that bans the use of critical race theory. Mark Hand , Patch Staff Posted | Updated Replies VIRGINIA — "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday night ripped into Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s executive order issued Saturday that bans the use of critical race theory or related "inherently divisive concepts" in the state's public schools, with a spoof on a Time Life collection of books called the “Glenn Youngkin Collection.” The satirized advertisement for the Time Life Books Collection states that each week, readers will receive a “Youngkin-approved text that avoids addressing racial inequality” such as a “Raisin in the Fun” and “To Thrill a Rocking Bird” and “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Karaoke.” The spoof goes on to say that “you and your children will love to learn that racism is … [Read more...] about Youngkin Mocked Over Critical Race Theory Ban, Use Of MLK Quote

As public health experts prepare for 1 million COVID-19 deaths, journalists and Boston University collaborated for a USA Today series that disclosed some counties in the South and the West that underreported the number of people dying from the coronavirus.

Democrats’ push to make permanent the voting rules put in place during the pandemic is a near last-ditch effort to keep their 2024 hopes alive. Should the Democrats not be able to preserve COVID-related, “emergency” voting measures by passing the Freedom to Vote Act, many voters who only came out because of automatic or early balloting in 2020 will be less likely to cast ballots in 2024. The combination of reversion to pre-pandemic voting measures and shifting demographics means that without a thumb on the scale in the next elections, they lose. Pandemic emergency voting measures such as mass mail-in voting, often involving unrequested ballots sent by states and ballot drop boxes, fundamentally transformed the electoral landscape in 2020. Such efforts are key to Democrats’ hopes in 2024 — last election, 58 percent of Joe Biden voters voted by mail; this was almost double the rate of Donald Trump Donald Trump Sanders calls out Manchin, Sinema ahead of filibuster showdown … [Read more...] about Democrats would rip up election law under the guise of a COVID emergency

LAMMEFJORDEN, Denmark WHEN a cook is said to be in the weeds, it usually means he is tangled up in too many orders coming at him too fast. But on a recent afternoon on the seashore here about an hour’s drive from Copenhagen, the Danish chef René Redzepi was, quite literally, in the weeds. Up to his knees. And what he was doing was snacking. Browsing. Like a rabbit, albeit a rabbit in charge of a restaurant that has set the culinary world abuzz. Treating the windswept brush as an unkempt salad bar, he plucked a thin green blade. “This is how the Vikings got their vitamin C,” he said. “It’s called scurvy grass. It has a horseradish tone.” So it did, and the wild garden sorrel that he found seconds later tasted every bit as sharp and lemony as he had promised. For 15 minutes he and a companion nibbled on various petals, leaves and shoots, attracting stares from onlookers in a campground nearby, who no doubt wondered at their sanity and zest for roughage. “So much of what … [Read more...] about Nordic Chef Explores Backyard
Several West Virginia sports leaders are urging Sen. Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., to support federal voting rights legislation, as he remains steadfast in his refusal to change Senate rules that would make passing such legislation possible. In a letter sent to Manchin last week, five sports leaders - most with ties to West Virginia - said they "strongly support urgently needed legislation that will protect both the rights of voters and the integrity of outcomes in all Federal elections." The Freedom to Vote Act, one of two bills that Democrats are trying to advance to protect voting rights, "effectively addressed these goals," they added. The letter was signed by former Los Angeles Laker and NBA executive Jerry West; Nick Saban, the head football coach at the University of Alabama; former Houston Oiler and XFL commissioner Oliver Luck; former NFL linebacker Darryl Talley; and former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue. "We come from some of our Nation's most popular sports leagues, … [Read more...] about Nick Saban, Jerry West urge Manchin to support voting rights legislation

What Facebook faces The Federal Trade Commission and more than 40 states sued Facebook yesterday, saying its acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp unfairly eliminated competition. They called for Facebook to be split apart and restricted in making future deals, “some of the most severe penalties regulators can demand,” write The Times’s Cecilia Kang and Mike Isaac . Breaking up is hard to do. Few high-profile antitrust cases have centered on mergers years earlier. “No American antitrust enforcer has ever brought a case like this before, and for good reason,” Jennifer Newstead, Facebook’s general counsel, wrote in the company’s initial retort . You have to go back to the breakup of AT&T in the 1980s for a major case that unwound consummated mergers; “Courts historically have expressed anxiety about doing it,” William Kovacic, a former chairman of the F.T.C., told The Times . The F.T.C. faced criticism for the $5 billion fine it levied last year against Facebook … [Read more...] about Who Wants to Undo Facebook?
