  • Me and my old friend @upstartcrow12 at Shakespeare’s tomb a few years ago. Happy birthday Will.  PS fun fact: Wolfe’s handle “upstart crow” is based on an early critic of Shakespeare, who called his writing that of an “upstart crow” among other things. So... more evidence proving the old proverb “haters gonna hate.”

  • How do you say it better? Mark’s words: ・・・ So many of us are involved with charity during this pandemic. That’s commendable and beautiful and right. What the pandemic has also shown us is that our charity is only a bandaid on a cancerous economic system. If this system was economically just. If we had universal healthcare, living wages, childcare, racial justice, and guaranteed food and shelter, we wouldn’t have this mad scramble to raise funds for the people in need. We wouldn’t have this level of death and suffering in the richest nation in world. We would be safe to weather out this storm more equally, together. Now, the inequality inherent in our economic system is laid bare. Brown people, and the poor, and working poor suffering the greatest losses. There is truly enough for all. But not when so much is hoarded by so few. The religious prophets we are honoring at this time knew this. They fought and died for it in one way or another. Let’s hope and pray there is a moral resurrection in this triple holy season brought on by the collapse and disruption of COVID-19. Funny that Jesus fought against an unjust empire. The virus itself is a crown. The virus is showing us how wrong we have it now morally, economically and spiritually. Happy Easter, Ramadan, and Passover to all.

  • I was in a sketch by my brilliantly funny friends @nickkocher and  @alexanfanger and dan Schimpf. It might be a welcome moment in your day. In any case it’s on @fxxnetwork on a cool show called Cake. Please don’t tell my agents that I did this. ・・・

  • This is from a food bank location in LA, showing just how great the need is. On this strange St Patrick’s day, I am having some Irish medicine in my house and then donating to @lafoodbank to help out kids and other folks in need during these trying times. Feel free to share other local organizations near you; look out for each other, stay healthy and inside, and try to have a relatively happy St Pats. @lafoodbank #stpatscoronavirusday

  • From @gretathunberg ・・・ This graph from @carbonbrief shows how fast we need to cut our emissions of CO2 to stay within the remaining carbon budget for 1,5°C of global temperature rise. It basically illustrates what I’ve been saying in all my speeches since this summer.  Its time to start asking our elected officials how they are going to achieve this... Or let them explain why we should give up on the 1,5°C target, and by doing so significantly increase the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.  And make sure they understand that this is for a 66% chance of staying below 1,5°C of average temperature rise, and that 66% does not include the global aspect of equity, most feedback loops, non-linear tipping points nor additional warming hidden by air pollution.  This can no longer be news among other news, an "important topic" among other topics, a "political issue" among other political issues or a crisis among other crises. This is not party politics or opinions.  This is a scientific fact. This is an existential emergency. And we must start treating it as such.  Because unless we start to focus everything on this, our targets will soon be out of reach.  I know it shouldn’t be up to you and me to make sure that the science from the IPCC reaches the public but unfortunately this is how it is. So please share!

  • Support Australia. From my great friend @jaicourtney ・・・ AUSTRALIA IS BURNING. And it’s getting worse. People have died. More are missing. Thousands of homes have been lost. Tens of thousands of people are displaced. 15million acres of land have been burned (23,000sq miles) killing and destroying the habitats of thousands of species of wildlife and wiping out a total area way bigger than New York City. For perspective - That’s 7 times larger than the Amazon fires and 3 times larger than the 2018 blazes in California. If you want to help, PLEASE do. Give anything. Links in my bio to @redcrossau bushfire appeal but it’s SO easy to get online and decide how you want to help. Thank you to brave souls battling this apocalyptic mayhem. Awe, respect, nothin but love. @nswrfs @cfavic @qldfire @sa_countryfireservice @dfes_wa @wireswildliferescue @wwf_australia @portmacquariekoalahospital @salvosau @redcrossau #fires #bushfires #australianfires #australia

  • Thanks old friend. ・・・@ericbilitch Happy Birthday @FinnWittrock. So glad you didn’t go into politics... but now that you’re 35, you can run for President. I hear this no longer requires any experience in the field.
