Housekeeping: Happy Juneteenth
We're off Monday to celebrate Juneteenth.
The holiday commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans, so I'd like you to take some time Monday to reflect on how bad slavery, as an institution, was in this country. That's something that I'd like to think most of us would agree on, regardless of where we sit on the political spectrum (I know that there are some who downplay the horrors or even defend the idea, and that saddens me).
Speaking of politics, please keep any racism, hatred, bigotry, and the like out of the comments. While we're here -- I am aware that the comments have been a bit unruly lately. We're working through some things internally that will make it easier to discipline those who break our rules. Please, play nice -- it's a privilege, not a right, to be able to comment on a platform like this. Don't make us drop the banhammer.
As per usual, there might be a stray feature/weekend post or breaking news coverage. Otherwise, see you Tuesday.
