|Amy Widdowson||May 7, 2020|
IT’S A QUICK ONE because my calls start at 7 and I missed yesterday’s Missive and sharing internet stuff with y’all is one of my favorite parts of my day and I’m racing to send before my computer runs out of battery and fyi here’s the aforementioned Latch cover should you also need to get down this morning. Which you absolutely should.
Just gonna drop this right here and back away slowly: Nearly Half of Men Say They Do Most of the Home Schooling. 3 Percent of Women Agree.
The WeWork saga: Still… insane? WeWork co-founder Adam Neumann sues SoftBank over $3bn deal.
Danny Crichton of TechCrunch, I salute you for this headline: Competing with Disney+ and Quibi, Supreme Court launches streaming service.
A reminder - the current occupant of the Oval Office surrounds himself with very scary men and women: Before Covid-19, Trump Aide Sought to Use Disease to Close Borders (thanks Mum for this soul-crushing article.)
OMG here’s a brain cleanser after that last one: watch this slow-mo video of a hummingbird and tell me nature isn’t the absolute coolest.
And finally, in 1847, the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma sent $170 to Ireland to help during the Great Famine. Now, Irish people have raised $2 million and counting for the Navajo Nation, which is one of the hardest-hit communities by the novel coronavirus (“The Navajo Nation reported more than 2,700 coronavirus cases and 70 deaths as of Monday, a rate of infection that makes it one of the worst outbreaks in the United States.”) BTW, you can personally donate to the official Navajo Nation COVID-19 relief fund.
Y’all are lovely. Be kind to each other.
