this was one of the most ethically, transparently conducted *& successful* projects in history, in an environment of abdication of responsibility by key parts of the govt ecosystem. I hope it will be studied by the whole public interest tech field twitter.com/COVID19Tracking/st

Inspired by praise for WC Fields.

How can one not get the Marx Brothers?

@mattzollerseitz@twitter.com While I love Fields, I taught a comedy class that included movies by Mae West, the Marx Brothers and Fields at UPenn about 10 years ago. Students loved loved loved West, didn't "get" the Marx Brothers and Fields' drunk jokes landed uncomfortably.

Last year at this time, 2% of the United States was in severe drought.

Now, it's 31%.

Snowpack in the California mountains is half of normal.
