How violent was Russia’s crackdown on protesters today? Take a look at the floor inside this police van in St. Petersburg, where detainees were held. via @OvdInfo

Pediatric cancer is horrifying, a lot of the fundraising appeals are smiling bald kids. But the real experience is so horrible. I am haunted by the images and it will always be with me. It makes so extremely angry at how little the government spends for pediatric brain cancer.

Researchers have to take whatever scraps they can get for adult cancer research. It makes so sad that among our priorities as society we spend so little to help these babies.

One of the most sad and disheartening things I learned during Francesca's illness is because childhood cancer drugs are not profitable almost all the funding for research for diseases like ATRT came from private foundations founded by parents who lost children.

A little JR history on this day: Then-1LT Jack Roosevelt Robinson was brought up before a court-martial for refusing to sit in the back of the bus. This was 1944 — 11 years before Rosa Parks. He was not convicted.

Trump's greatest border security success wasn't the wall. It was his safe-third-country deals with Northern Triangle nations that contributed to a 88% decrease in law enforcement encounters along our southern border. And now Biden wants to axe those deals. washingtonexaminer.com/opinion

The U.S. condemns the persistent use of harsh tactics against peaceful protesters and journalists by Russian authorities for a second week straight. We renew our call for Russia to release those detained for exercising their human rights, including Aleksey Navalny.

When Jackie Robinson faced down slurs, spiked cleats, and pitches aimed at his head—and stole home anyway—he didn't only change baseball. He changed the world and paved the way for others, including me. On his birthday, we’re called not only to honor that legacy but build on it.

Allegations became public this month in @amconmag and an open letter from @GarrettHerrin, one of the men Weaver messaged. My and @dannyhakim's reporting shows how widespread the harassment was — 21 men came forward within days — and how aggressive it got. nytimes.com/2021/01/31/us/poli
