Did you know black people can only own certain kinds of dogs?

This one's a doozy. It's a long reddit post from a black woman about how a food delivery driver called the cops on her at her own home because she thought she stole her own dog. The deep suspicion?

The woman owns a golden retriever. Which is apparently a white people dog?


If you don't want to go through the whole post, let me relieve your mind a touch. The cops were not at all amused by the delivery driver.

Wondering how blood banks are handling the virus

The explosion in Beruit injured more than 3,000, and the hospitals are begging people for blood.

I was curious how the blood supply is being monitored with this pandemic. I assume it's all being screened for Covid?

If anyone here in the medical profession knows, I'd appreciate some knowledge.

Saw the most depressingly American thing today

I was down in Cupertino for various reasons, staying at a hotel across the street from Apple Park (their new $5 billion headquarters).

All along the perimeter of the giant circular building?

Homeless encampments.

A $1.3 trillion company with the homeless lined around outside. Positively dystopian.

A fun follow up for those wondering why California is becoming a Covid mess. Passed a huge flea market along 880 in either south Oakland or San Leandro. No social distancing. Maybe half without masks. Completely crowded.

It's a total mystery why cases are spiking here.
