War of the Drones
Moscow comes under attack for the second time since Russia invaded Ukraine. Plus: Heroic acts by Target employees in support of Pride. And: The Blue Jays' Anthony Bass is wrong. Again.
This was the day in 1806 that a man who would become president of the United States committed murder. That man was Andrew Jackson.
And if you don’t already know the name Fred Korematsu, look him up here. It was on this day in 1942 that this Japanese American was arrested for objecting to internment by the U.S. Government, an act upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, until it was finally rescinded and reparations were made.

ONE IN 14 TRANS AMERICANS NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO THEIR GENDER-AFFIRMING MEDICATION: Zinnia Jones launched FloridaBan.com to get the word out, focusing primarily on her home state of Florida.
“SB 254, effective May 17, 2023, banned nearly all new HRT prescriptions and refills of existing prescriptions for trans adults, for up to 6 more weeks or until ‘emergency’ state-mandated consent forms are published by the Boards of Medicine,” Jones writes. “Trans care bans were never about ‘protecting children’ — they were about making all trans existence completely impossible.”
