I was almost done interviewing Weinstein’s defense attorney when I decided to ask one more question: had she ever been sexually assaulted? “I have not,” she said at 23:50. “Because I would never put myself in that position.” Then things really heated up. nyti.ms/39hghZy

The window is closing for evacuations from Kabul. @kim_barker & I have been trying to get our former Afghan employees from our Chicago Tribune days on a flight but it is looking grim. I spoke to one of them today, he is terrified. Can anyone suggest a way to help? 🙏🙏🙏

THIS:
1. Twenty years ago today, a girl named Dasani was born in Brooklyn. When we met, she was a spunky 11-year-old with big dreams and no home. I spent the next eight years of my life following hers. This book is her story: penguinrandomhouse.com/books…

It feels nice to be tweeting some good news for a change. Since the arrival of vaccines, nursing homes deaths have dropped. This winter, even as fatalities spiked in the general population, nursing home deaths fell by more than 65% nytimes.com/interactive/2021… @mathisonian @smervosh

The @nytimes journalists in the Capitol have firsthand accounts of what happened. The most harrowing is from @erinschaff, who was trying to photograph what was happening.
