“I never thought I’d get a phone call from my brother and he’s holding his baby and they just told him that her heart has stopped.

As some of you know, I’ve been obsessed with creating rat-proof, flower-bed-topped trash receptacles that double as a protected bike lane for some time now. Totally normal, I know.

NEW from me: Afro-Latino  @Ritchie Torres wants to be in the Hispanic Caucus and the Black Caucus but he can’t be in both: “It's an antiquated notion that you can be Black or Latino, but you can't be both.” https://www.newsweek.com/afro-latino-ritchie-torres-wants-future-congress-where-old-fashioned-rules-... via  @Newsweek
