Events are happening faster than we can write articles on, so we’re switching to a summary format for some articles.
Some subjects may be too uncomfortable to read. We ask you to use discernment in your choice.
Skirting the meme war does not affect the subjects we cover; only the sources we use to cover them.
We may judge some information from a biased source as good and credible and post an extract (only) from that article.
