Dan told me that story. "My friend" Rebecca Goldstein is Pinker's wife, and a very good novelist. When I met her at a secularism conference she didn't mention the title. Classy.

I've read your proposal. Will be writing an extended comment/critique soon, hopefully. But in my read the model is fundamentally similar.

(Obviously I get that a "local paper's take" won't be of interest to someone at Harvard Law School!)

So ... Barrett makes a majority of 5 to rehear Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar and hold that state legislatures have exclusive authority to appoint electors, and then legislatures in PA, MI, WI, AZ, FL etc say vote is hopeless tainted and just appoint GOP slates?

We were initially thinking blended. But the teachers at our son's school made ac collective statement that they did not believe the school was safe working environment and strongly asked parents to choose online if they could. At that point it's a matter of labor solidarity.

The risks aren't to the kids. They're to the people who work in the schools, and to the older people who come into contact with them, and the older people who come in contact with people who come into contact with them, and so on.

We had a big family shelter open in an empty apartment building around the corner from us in Brooklyn about 5 years ago. There were some protests but the counter-protests in support were bigger. I haven't been aware of any issues since.

How come? We chose all-remote for our older kid. (The younger is still in daycare.) We were thinking of switching to blended in spring if cases stay low, but latest DOE move will keep us online all year. If goal is to bully people back into classroom I suspect it will backfire.

70 percent of NYCers think that opening schools for in-person learning was a mistake.
