People have been asking about my Board of Estimate and Taxation endorsements now that Christa Moseng is no longer running. There are two seats, but after much consideration I will only attach my name to one candidate this year. Please get to know Pine Salica. @PineforBET@twitter.com

And: I'm not sure which comment from JaNaé Bates is being referenced here. But I do know some things about Charter Commissioner Jana Metge's deficiencies, so it's very possible she has no clue that the minimum staffing charter provision was won by the police union in 1961.

Minneapolis residents who got a mailer that implies Keith Ellison wants you to vote no on the amendment that reimagines community safety but does NOT defund police—you were lied to. The Vote No campaign admits it. Shame on them. Vote #Yes4Minneapolis

@WedgeLIVE@twitter.com Does Gov Walz know that his own state government has a Department of Public Safety with police being a sub-division under that? Sound familiar?

normalize showing up places having experienced the weather. it's okay to show up wet, hot, cold, whatever. it's valid to exist outdoors

July 2020: Charter Commission Chair Barry Clegg conceding that staffing minimums don't belong in the charter, but since it suits his politics (and takes power away from an elected body he disagrees with) we should just leave it in.

There's an element of anti-democratic sentiment running through this election year that amounts to "well, Minneapolis couldn't possibly elect a city council I agree with, so they shouldn't actually have any power."

Here's an election year scene from the heartland of the Wedge.

Listen, you can keep this mayor or you can seek out a strong mayor. You can't have both.

2017 campaign theme: the police department is "the mayor's job."

Mayor presides over the implosion of the police department.

2021 campaign theme: charter commission trying to make all the other non-police departments the mayor's job.

Well I spoke too soon. If Linea Palmisano wants to put this on Linea Palmisano. (I'm sorry for always protecting Linea Palmisano.)

Apparently Zoom straight up lied about conferences being E2E encrypted, and didn’t tell anyone that they were passing personally identifiable data to Facebook & Google for years.

They have just had their ass handed to them by the FTC, and members of a class action lawsuit will be receiving compensation. Also… maybe don’t use Zoom unless your employer makes you. 😬
