From Chile to the United States, 9/11 and #UNFTR Unf*cking the Republic


Everything below was shamelessly copied and pasted exactly from UNFTR EPISODE SHOW NOTES. Subscribe, rate and support them.

Today’s episode is a departure from our normal format. We were tempted to let the 20th anniversary of 9/11 pass given it will be oversaturated with remembrances and armchair punditry as well as the usual tragedy porn imagery. But the impact of 9/11 remains so widespread that it’s impossible to ignore. So, we wanted to add something honest, critical and ultimately hopeful to the mix. This episode contains none of our typical irreverence or profanity, nor do we traffic in speculation or conspiracy. Rather, this is a story of a consequential date in history told in three parts and beginning nearly 50 years ago.

HISD 2021-2022 Back to School Plan

The new 2021-2022 HISD safety “plan” is not a plan. It’s a lazy, paint all children of all ages with the same brush approach to a complicated public health crisis.
For starters, why would they have the same policy in place at high schools where essentially all children can be vaccinated that they have at middle and elementary schools?
