MUST READ
I was invited to give an MLK speech today and a small number of members of the group hosting me wrote and then leaked emails opposing my giving this speech, as it dishonored Dr. King for me to do so. They called me a "discredited activist" "unworthy of such association with King"

A lot of people are quoting Dr. King today to justify actions that are an insult to his legacy. If he were alive today, these same hypocrites would be vilifying him on Fox News.

As you honor my father today, please remember and honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded two months after Daddy was assassinated. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK

🧵 Family, Tomorrow, there will be people tweeting about my father and #MLKDay who are complicit in, complacent about and/or a part of cultivating some form of injustice. That’s to be expected, and not just regarding voting legislation.

Seems like a good reason to send a pediatrician and gun violence prevention researcher to Congress.
Firearms are now THE leading cause of death for children and teens in America. Not cancer, not car accidents—gun violence. When will enough be enough?

Soft cookies, lollipops and fruity gummies: Marijuana edibles often look just like regular foods, and children are accidentally ingesting them. But as states pass laws on packaging these foods, unintentional exposures have continued to climb. nyti.ms/3tnfjZ0

Omicron is causing a TSUNAMI, not a wave, of infections in the US. No one knows what will come next with Covid, but we can make a big difference now by taking simple actions to shield the vulnerable & protect health care. Here's where we are—and where we might be headed. 1/thread

Highest yearly number of flu deaths in the U.S. in the last 100 years: 80,000 Covid deaths in the U.S. in the last 21 months: 869,212 It’s not “just like the flu”.

Dear @SenatorSinema: The best way to honor Uncle John is to help stop the suppressive #voting legislation that many states are passing. Ideally, this would be a bipartisan effort, but we can’t severely damage democracy to maintain a kind of “false peace.” Get into #GoodTrouble.
My hero. Rest in power, my friend.

My kid was a nightmare at school yesterday. Really awful. And yet, on our way out her teacher stops her & wraps her into a hug- “You know I still love you, right? Tomorrow is a new day.” 😭❤️ #SpEd #TeachersAreHeroes #Autism

As would the tennis-covering media.
Let me say this, if Naomi Osaka, or Serena Williams acted in the way Novak Djokovic has acted in the past couple weeks- the tennis association would be sharpening their knives. They hung Osaka out to dry because she missed a couple pressers, meanwhile on Djokovic...(crickets).

Fantastic, so at the same time that all of our relief is ending, student loans are restarting, etc……prices are going up. What could go wrong? 🙄

What matters, to be clear, is that WE HAVE NO SPACE in our ERs or ICUs, and that COVID causes badness. Our ER waits are 6-12 hours, even for really sick patients. I love data and support accuracy. But let's fix the system.
Data news: @GovDanMcKee says RI is working to differentiate between hospitalizations *for* COVID versus for other reasons but testing positive (as other states are doing) Lots of interest in that data, tho docs/nurses warn they're overstretched either way wpri.com/health/coronavirus/…

“Texas has the worst Senators!” Florida- “Hold my beer.” South Carolina- “No, hold MY beer.” Kentucky walks in… Game over.
