Внезапно

tmz.com -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren is going scorched earth over Jeff Bezos leaving Earth -- she's pissed about his trip to space, and says everyone who pays their taxes should be too.
Не вижу тут никакой разницы с Гагариным или Армстронгом, но вообще согласен, конечно.

Chloé Zhao, Nomadland (2020)



Удивительное попурри. Первая новелла "Астенического синдрома" с милиционершей из "Фарго" и тарелками из "Фаворитов Луны", но всё это по сценарию "Nickel and Dimed". Пока я сфокусировал взгляд и понял, куда смотреть, успело кончится. ОК, один раз посмотреть можно.

Победа Гуриева и Венедиктова оказалась неокончательной и не повсеместной

NPR (сообщает с видимым сожалением) -- A new federal program created by the Biden administration to reverse years of economic discrimination against U.S. farmers of color has ground to a halt. On Thursday, a federal judge in Wisconsin ordered the U.S. Department of Agriculture to stop forgiving loans on the basis of race under a novel effort included in the American Rescue Plan relief package.
"The government has created a program that distributes government benefits based solely on the race of the farmer, and Supreme Court precedent is very clear the government can't do that without a very good reason," Luke Berg, deputy counsel with the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, told NPR.
