If you can afford it: to those renting property, cancel rent. Pay housecleaner, hair stylist, facialist, etc, on Venmo & tell them to stay home. Appreciate their talents as your roots grow in and your pores clog and your surfaces grow dusty. Pay them and pay them now.

"Why in the hell should any Detroit resident have concerns about their water service being interrupted...? Shouldn’t clean water be the absolute base level of service delivered by a city to its residents?" Must-read on COVID contradictions  @Slate  @Dan Kois https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/03/coronavirus-tsa-liquid-purell-paid-leave-rules.html?fbcl...

Service workers and anyone living off the tip economy are going to suffer over the next few weeks. If you have the means and happen to be out, try to leave double your usual tip--or 50% of the bill, if you can swing it.  #covid50  #solidarity  #labor  #tipyourserver  #tipyourbartender

With current crisis it's easy to overlook how most of us have legitimate access to our loved ones, especially if they live with or near us. For over 30k men and women over the next month in Missouri, this is not the case. https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/MODOC/bulletins/280c794

Really liked Stéphane Batut’s debut film BURNING GHOST—strange, dreamy, yet suddenly moving  @UniFrance  @Film at Lincoln Center  #frenchcinema

"In portraying people and communities who are subject to violence in systematic ways, do we do them justice, do we respect the dignity of their struggle, if we summarize them as “the vulnerable”?

Warren looked neither mean NOR particularly angry. I should know. That’s *my* look!

Mean and angry Warren is not a good look

"It was very hard for [women]... there was no way to be free: you either became an outlaw or became pathologized." A delight to unpack the patriarchy with Brazilian filmmaker  @Karim Aïnouz for  @LA Review of Books (LARB).

On the walk home, I cut through the Biomedical Engineering building and it smelled just like Spaghetti-Os. This is not at all a complaint.  #stemstarch

Pumped that  @Jennifer S. Hirsch was here at  @Washington University in St. Louis to discuss her "Sexual Citizens" study, the subject of a  @The New Yorker piece  @Jia Tolentino that I shared with first-year students in 2018, leading to conversation about sex/power that I remember two years later. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/02/12/is-there-a-smarter-way-to-think-about-sexual-assault-o...
