Very glad you liked it and hear you 1000% on self-centering, self-dramatizing discovery narratives (which I tried to critique in the story) 💚

En l'interviewant vendredi, j'ai croisé en tous les cas deux cadres du RN au Bristol qui venaient de s'entretenir avec lui.

Veiled mothers are perfectly free to do all of the things I just mentioned. They do them. In my kid's school, in France.

So a mother wearing a veil can drop her kids off at school in the morning, hang out in the classroom, run the crepe stand at the Saturday morning carnival–but she can't join the class on a field trip?

Actually it's not. But don't take it from me, take it from the president.

To be fair, the vote was 186 for, 100 against, and 159 abstentions; the president and several ministers have said that they think mothers, as citizens, should be free to wear what they want. But, yes, it's a worrying sign and would be an unjust law.

I didn't say that it would be (and, in fact, the Assemblée already rejected it). Its approval in the Senate is still a worrying sign.

Reading on Kindle, so no idea how many pages into "Furious Hours" by , but it's so transfixing–and so obviously an immediate classic–that I'm slogging across town today to buy it in hardcover

The French Senate voted "yes" on an amendment that would ban a hijab-wearing woman from accompanying her child on a school field trip. Racist, random, and counterproductive as ****. If you want people to participate in civic life, then WELCOME them.

Oh god. Was on a panel with him during the 2016 election and he became *enraged* when he said there were "30 million undocumented immigrants in America" (or somesuch number) and I said, "If they're undocumented, then how do you know?"
