I would buy a Johnny Lawrence cookbook.

Me and @candacejackson were just talking about that time when MTV played Informer by Snow while the lyrics scrolled down the screen and everyone was talking about it on the schoolyard the next day.

Breaking my Twitter fast to say how excited I am that my favorite sports columnist @GrantBrisbee is now, apparently, my colleague. https://t.co/7ICMZh6K0T

This is 100% pure and uncut gnarliness. https://t.co/d5xAHdM61H

The perfect way to end 2021: A drink with @maxdubler, who serves on the planning commission of both #SkateTwitter and #HousingTwitter.

It wouldn't be California if it wasn't collapsing! https://t.co/LGarUbXpL5

Seems like a good time to remind everyone that the greatest audiobook ever produced is @Diane_Keaton's reading of Slouching Towards Bethlehem. https://t.co/dlJwJ3Gofq

Had to come out of Twitter sobriety to say RIP to one of the best to ever do it. Joan became an American icon, but she was a California writer. https://t.co/7yabw5JooT

The Jackson-Dougherty household is holding down the housing stories in today's @nytimes Sunday Business section. @candacejackson

ICYMI my story on how the country's biggest supply of affordable housing is illegal housing. https://t.co/fV2JTqLyRK

Real estate love letters – those sweet, family-centric notes that homebuyers use to try and compel an offer-deluged seller to pick them – are booming w/ the housing market. But do they promote discrimination? Super interesting story by @candacejackson. https://t.co/Kr339mQY6L

California is in the midst of a backyard housing boom, but guess what, a lot of them were already there illegally. My story: https://t.co/X4vGI3EnR1

Last year I did a dry social media January and afterwards felt so refreshed and focused that I've decided to try again, only earlier this time. So: See you all next year. Until then, @candacejackson has my password and has vowed not to let me rescue it.

Why is a homeowner who sells their home for profit any less bad than a landlord? Both realized profit by doing nothing other than providing a home that people needed. The only difference is the higher rate of liquid transactions for landlords.

I know urging haters to read doesn't accomplish anything but for anyone unsure about YIMBYs, I always recommend @ConorDougherty's book Golden Gates - the origin of YIMBY is some Millennials realizing well into adulthood that homeownership is not a reality for our generation. https://t.co/bqUioJdU4T

I think Betty White would enjoy having made one last epic joke.

How Joan Didion's Sacramento childhood shaped her life, and her take on California. W/ @sleavenworth who doesn’t get to write as often as he should! https://t.co/ANE5oXfB6W

Like many people, I woke this morning to sad news. Here's the obit I just wrote for next week's @NewYorker. https://t.co/9eFaHpqPRT

“It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends.” Joan Didion changed journalism (and writing) in this country. Her sentences! Her paragraphs! We all owe her, or I do, anyway. https://t.co/K6csqIN5oz

I was born in California and my father's family was Californian but we were estranged from them for a while and to this day I don't really know how much of my intense sense of California as a place and a psychology was passed down and how much just came from Joan Didion.

“Nobody writes better English prose than Joan Didion,” critic John Leonard once wrote. “Try to rearrange one of her sentences, and you’ve realized that the sentence was inevitable, a hologram.” https://t.co/Mb0MEIdrb7

While Joan was a ‘New Journalist’ (and without question the best of that cohort) she was also California's greatest postwar essayist, a ruthless master of sentences and self-interrogation. She made me want to be a writer. https://t.co/4TL2nRnoZV

This was a very absorbing & informative read. ⬇️ Conor’s book “Golden Gates” is A++ and this (like many of his articles) feels like the continuation of a smart and nuanced conversation. https://t.co/nbaGNysTbF
