1. Texas to open everything to 100% capacity while feds warn not to ease restrictions
Texas and Mississippi said they're lifting COVID-19 restrictions, including mask mandates, a day after CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky warned states that "now is not the time" to do so. https://t.co/pjBNkoAUCp pic.twitter.com/d8wojyXIIE

2. As our societies become increasingly fascist in the original, Mussolini sense, we can expect to see more things like this.

(How are people enjoying communism so far?)
Suddenly on Tuesday, after the company that publishes Dr. Seuss books announced it would stop selling six of his titles — “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer” — those books could not be found on Amazon.com for their normal prices, and any editions for sale had astronomical prices.
For example, when searching for “If I Ran The Zoo,” the Amazon site listed “1 new,” “1 used,” and “1 collectible,” but when clicking on the links for “new” or “used,” a message popped up reading, “Currently there are no other sellers matching your location and/or item specification.” Yet a “collectible” link showed the book available for $1,500.
“McElligot’s Poll” listed only two collectible books, each selling for $2,500. The description of the book stated:
Imagination runs wild in this Caldecott Honor-winning tale featuring Dr. Seuss’s inimitable voice and hysterical illustrations. The first Seuss title to feature full-color art on every other page, this adventurous picture book tells of Marco-who first imagined an extraordinary parade in And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street-as he daydreams of all the possibilities that await him while he fishes in McElligot’s Pool. Optimistic and exciting, this tale is the perfect bait, and readers young and old will be hooked on this fish-tastic favorite.

5. Ontario: Vaccine Passport a great idea!
(Its the inversion that is the issue. Instead of a yellow star on the unwashed, the Najis, you have a special symbol for those who accept the authority of the state. As an aside, things go from paranoid right-wing conspiracy theories to policy in record time these days, don’t they?)
Thank you M., Wrath of Khan, Yucki, KoJo, ML., EB., Sassy, ET., and all who can tell a hawk from a handsaw.
