chibi_nightowl - Stray and the Red Hood series
There was once a little boy named Stray who became best friends with the second Robin. Many years later, they meet again, but this time as Stray and the Red Hood.

part 1: Stray Cat Strut
"I doubt you arranged this little meeting to discuss the finer points of the fashion disasters that are Gotham's capes."

Another low laugh and Red Hood took a cautious step forward. "I wouldn't call that cat suit a disaster. You've certainly made the look your own."

Stray wanted to snarl and settled for baring his teeth. "You could say that. What do you want from me, Hood?"

Red Hood held his hands out in a placating gesture. "Nothing much. I just need you to get me into Arkham. I'm going to kill the Joker."

US recession
“These are cascades that, once they get going, are very hard to stop,” said Claudia Sahm, director of macroeconomic policy for the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, a progressive think tank. “You’re already seeing it.” "David Chang isn’t sure the restaurant industry will survive Covid-19."

COVID and the US safety net
"Most rich countries have universal health insurance and provide a minimum cash income for families with children. The United States has neither as well as higher rates of child poverty.

"And to a degree that casual observers may not understand, the Trump administration has tried both to shrink safety net programs and make eligibility for them dependent on having a job or joining a work program.

“Relative to other wealthy nations, we’ve always had a fragmented and weak safety net,” said Donald P. Moynihan of the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University, who is co-author of a book on administrative barriers to aid. “When the government really wants a program to succeed, it takes the simple and more direct approach — sending people checks.”

"But while Republicans have agreed to emergency checks, many did so reluctantly, thinking the safety net is already too large. The $2 trillion rescue package ran into last-minute delays last week when four Senate Republicans said the temporary increase in unemployment benefits was too high and would dissuade people from working."

Report outlines recommendations for action on caste and gender justice in Nepal (IDSN News)
A comprehensive report on the status of Dalit women in Nepal has been released by IDSN member the Feminist Dalit Organization Nepal (FEDO) with support from IDSN and Womankind.

The report details the situation, challenges and recommendations within poverty, education, health, safety, political participation, Dalit women in the media and Dalit girl children in Nepal.

It is clear from the report that while progress has been made, immediate and sustained action targeted at Dalit women in Nepal is crucial.

Sibilant Fricative: Evan Winter, "The Rage of Dragons" (2019)
«I understand, of course, the argument that says: this is neither a representation of, nor a call to, actual violence—it's cartoon violence, like Tom and Jerry. Still, Tom and Jerry used to be a five-minute interlude between Crackerjack and Blue Peter. Now it's the whole schedule. Sure, we chafe against the restrictions of Civilisation and Its Discontents, and (sure) those discontents stem from the way we must constrain our desires and aggressions in the face of the provocations of others. But the fantasy that acting out our violent instincts would free us from this bind is as fatuous as it is mendacious. Do it really need saying? Physical violence in facile books and films simplifies, frees, acts cathartically and manifests graceful physicality; but physical violence in real life is always ugly, always upsetting, always graceless, never effects any longer-term catharsis and always, always but always complexifies and degrades the situation into which it is inserted.»

The Electoral College is long past its sell-by date, and the people who run national campaigns know it.
“The first thing you do is eliminate states completely,” Jeremy Bird, a field director for both of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, told me. “Which states are so blue, which are so red — they’re not going to have an impact. You do that and, automatically, 100 million Americans are out of the conversation.” "Trump adorably admits the open secret: Republicans rely on lower turnout to win. Making it easier to vote, which should, in some fantasy world where democracy is more important than partisan advantage be a good thing, is bad for Republicans."

Why America Will Never Get Medicare for All
Our racist history, and our persisting blindness to it.

"Medicare and Medicaid, which became law in 1965, were the last major programs inspired by the New Deal. Since then, America has turned against welfare in favor of another, different tool of social management: prison. The same year Medicare and Medicaid passed, Johnson declared a war on crime; his successor, Richard Nixon, made crime fighting a central plank in his platform. In 1971 he declared a corollary war on drugs.

"Race was at the heart of Nixon’s vision. “You have to face the fact that the whole problem is really the blacks,” he declared in 1969, according to notes in the diary of his chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman. “The key is to devise a system that recognizes this while not appearing to.”"
