  • 05/17 14:51:32 Beula: Stand their ground!
  • 05/20 22:18:30 Leeanne: https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2...

  • 05/20 22:30:51 Leeanne: this took a vaguely troubling amount of time to find, given the number of major outlets’ headlines _alluding_ to it: https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/11298316...
  • 05/20 22:34:46 Leeanne: > In fact, obstruction of justice does not require the prosecution of an underlying crime, and there is a logical reason for that. Prosecutors might not charge a crime precisely *because* obstruction of justice denied them timely access to evidence that could lead to a prosecution.

  • 05/21 10:48:54 Kyra: And indeed he does.
  • 05/21 11:14:47 Percy: I agree in principal. In practice, power is a tentative agreement between powerful people. When a handful of people who are nominally powerful on their own decide share that power between themselves, their power can grow to reach an astonishing scale.
