Gardening TikToks. “New natural” furniture. Bingeing “Survivorman.” American culture is coming to grips with an emergency that is as intimate as it is immense. @megangarber on a new sort of environmentalism:

For most of American history, the vice presidency was an insignificant office famously described as a “bucket of warm piss,” @realcpaz wrote last summer. That changed in 1976 with Walter Mondale:

Donald Trump wants Ron Johnson, one of his top allies, to run again. Democrats are eager for the chance to beat the senator from Wisconsin at the polls. But he is keeping people guessing, @IsaacDovere reports:

YouTube’s content for young kids is a largely unregulated, data-driven grab for toddlers’ attention, and, as we’ve seen with the rest of social media, its ramifications may be deeper and wider than you’d initially think, Alexis Madrigal wrote in 2018.

Chris Christie is reportedly considering a 2024 presidential run. In 2012, @jeffreygoldberg attended a Bruce Springsteen concert with Christie, a superfan of the Boss. This is a tale of the ex-governor and the musician he loves—who refused to speak to him.

The best crime shows rely on their setting for dramatic impact. But HBO’s “Mare of Easttown” uses its Delco location to tell a truly specific story, @sophieGG writes:

I wrote about how to many people George Floyd became a symbol, but before that he was a father. And in so many ways, the latter is far more important.

The pandemic has surely contributed to some deaths by suicide -- but, also, it almost certainly has prevented some. There's no evidence of an increase overall, says @tebartl. So why has that idea persisted?

“The part of it that bothers me the most is the fact that suicides were politicized as a tool to argue for particular outcomes," a suicidologist tells @tebartl:

"Vaccination is changing the landscape of COVID risk by age. Hospital admissions have fallen dramatically for adults over 70 ... By dint of our vaccine order, COVID-19 will start looking like a disease of the young." Great piece by @sarahzhang

I wrote about this weird period where parents are vaccinated but kids are still waiting...and waiting... possibly until 2022. The pandemic will start looking very different

“It’s a very strange relationship to feel protected when your kids are still not."... But some 30 million households have children still too young to be vaccinated.

.@AdamSerwer on yesterday's verdict, and the heartbreaking reality that until the actual system is fixed, there will be more Derek Chauvins. And more George Floyds. And more Breonna Taylors. And more Daunte Wrights. And more Adam Toledos ...

"When Chauvin’s defense attorney said Chauvin was merely following his training, he may not have been strictly correct... But he was probably right that Chauvin was doing what he believed he was both allowed and expected to do."

"This confusing period of vaccinated adults and unvaccinated kids will not be over soon. And the pandemic will start to look quite different." As always, @sarahzhang nails it.

The institutional, cultural, and legal factors that led Chauvin to believe he could get away with kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes remain unchanged, and as long as that is the case, such deaths will continue to be a regular part of American life.
