OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa that drew thousands of people in late June, along with large protests that accompanied it, “likely contributed” to a dramatic surge in new coronavirus cases, Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart said Wednesday.

Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday.

My attitude towards her and others who pull stunts like this is: "you mess with the bull, you get the horns."

When I was a tiny babygay, I did gymnastics, and everybody, boys n girls, did balance beam. Ours was maybe 1 foot off the ground, like it had training wheels or something, but let me tell you, you get a serious respect for anyone who can do anything where their eyes leave the beam, and you get it REAL QUICK LIKE.

Ditto for the uneven bars. Those things are beyond terrifying.

San Francisco Supervisor Shamann Walton introduced the proposed ordinance on Tuesday, dubbing it the "Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies" Act, or the CAREN Act.

The ordinance's acronym, CAREN, appears to be a nod to the name "Karen," which has become a moniker for white women who call police on Black people for no justifiable reason.

I completely forgot about this!

I don't know if I'm making it up but maybe this was used in an episode of the Beatles cartoon? Or maybe it was a holiday special?
