      Solid. This is a good reminder that everything, always, is related.

      I, for one, have accidentally internalized these stories as distinct. It's hard not to. For example, on some recent phone calls with family and friends, I have literally asked: "What should we talk about first: protests or COVID?" as though they aren't part of the same story.

      Plus, some really powerful/wild/disturbing details that I didn't know, like this:

      It was later reported that Floyd and Chauvin had once worked security shifts at the same nightclub.
