Lakers’ Quinn Cook keeps showing passion for his hoops roots

Quinn Cook’s online cul-de-sac is bursting with challengers. For the few weeks in April when Cook hosted a nightly marathon Instagram live feed, it drew all levels of players. He would air live feeds chatting with Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, All-Stars who hail from the same region in Maryland where Cook grew up. But he also would allow cameos from D.C.-area streetballers, whose names are known only in gyms and playgrounds, and who inevitably want a piece of him. It matters little that the L...

Relist Watch: Looking for the living among the dead

John Elwood reviews Friday’s relists. A funny thing happened on Friday: The Supreme Court relisted cases for the next week’s conference, only one day following its previous conference. That may not seem like a big deal, but it’s the biggest change in the court’s relisting procedures in years. Usually, the court relists cases after it releases orders from the previous conference — usually following a Monday order list (or Tuesday, for holiday weekends). Because the Supreme Court usually relists e...

Go read this fascinating interview with a woman who inherited Elon Musk's old cell phone number — and a constant barrage of texts and calls

NPR's Bobby Allyn broke a fascinating story on Thursday about a Sephora worker who receives texts and calls every day that are intended for Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Lyndsay Tucker, 25, had never heard of Musk until she asked her mom about the constant barrage of calls and texts she fields from people trying to contact the billionaire entrepreneur.   As it turns out, Tucker's phone number was a number previously held by Musk. Tucker often gets messages from engineers, journalists, and businessmen, ...

The Washington School of Cartooning, just about a century ago

Warren Bernard  wrote in, "When Maryland re-opened some stuff, my sister and I went out to an antiques mall in Hagerstown. She spotted this gem: "I had never seen a cartoon course diploma, no less one from 1924  from the only DC area cartoon school, run by Will Chandlee, who worked for the Evening Star in the 19th Century. The office for the cartoon school was on 15th St for a while and the most famous graduate was Frank Godwin. I also have a promo booklet from the schoo...

COVID 19 Commercial Building Liability

With all 50 states now in some stage of reopening from coronavirus pandemic closures, many commercial real estate owners are questioning if they can be liable for damages when someone, whether an employee of the business tenant or someone else, claims to have contracted COVID-19 at their building. Obviously courts have never addressed a situation like the coronavirus pandemic (.. there was not a mature plaintiff’s bar during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic), and this evolving and rapidly growing e...

Reopen lawsuits, and their mixed outcomes

Lawsuits have been filed in many states challenging governors’ and mayors’ public health orders arising from the COVID-19 outbreak. I’m in the Frederick News-Post with a guest opinion piece on a judge’s rejection of the (unusually weak) Reopen suit in Maryland. Excerpts: In some other states, challengers have won rulings striking down at least some portions of state stay-home orders. But this suit’s claims failed all down the line, and here’s why…. In Wisconsin, Oregon, and Ohio, challengers w...

New Imperial College Research Estimates Coronavirus Still Spreading Uncontrolled in 24 US States (slashdot)

New research from Imperial College London suggests the coronavirus "may still be spreading at epidemic rates" in 24 different states in America, reports the Washington Post: Some states have had little viral spread or "crushed the curve" to a great degree and have some wiggle room to reopen their economies without generating a new epidemic-level surge in cases. Others are nowhere near containing the virus. The model, which has not been peer reviewed, shows that in the majority of states, a sec...

Lately I’ve seen an uptick in gardening mentions in the news, and the one above has to be my favorite headline of all. Then the article begins: Home gardening solves everything. This is the finding of a Princeton study published in that media hotbed Landscape and Urban Planning. The study’s press release notes that home gardening is “largely overlooked by policymakers.” And the conclusion for planners? [The researcher] points out that home gardening contributes to livable city and quality...
