Re: “Tuesday: An open line and murderous headlines

CBPP: How Medicaid Work Requirements Harm People with Mental Health Conditions

"The new guidance largely tries to justify Medicaid work requirements by citing research showing that people with jobs have better health and higher incomes than people without jobs. But that research doesnt show whether employment causes improved health or rather, as is likely for many people, the causal relationship is in the other direction namely, that healthy people are likelier to have jobs than those in poor health."

Re: “Revealed: More 'rehabilitation' work camps

Hey JJ - Reveal is asking for more stories of rehab work camps, so if you want to report in (especially if you know someone who has been in one of these places):

Re: “Wednesday: The open line and the day's news and comment

Late night updates on that CAAIRehab/Simmons chicken plant slavery story: Oklahoma lawmaker who sat on CAAIR's board of directors amends bill that would have made them subject to regulation. This story just keeps giving.


And from earlier this week, a second federal suit against CAAIR and Simmons:

Quote the FFRF: "A more religiously coercive environment is scarcely imaginable"

Meanwhile, Simmons is still set to open another plant in Gentry, some kind of glad handing meet and greet happening on Monday.

Re: “Lawsuit filed over unpaid labor by drug defendants for Arkansas poultry company

Hey Thomas, the site that published the original article (Reveal) is looking for more stories and I am sure they would love to hear from you: https://www.revealnews.org/blog/whats-your…

If you can, I encourage you to keep telling your story and maybe even try to join in on that lawsuit. Also, if you know of anyone else who has been in there, spread the word! I'm sorry that happened to you.

(But FYI, probably best not to put your phone number out on the internet for anyone to find.)

Re: “Monday, Monday

ProPublica is now looking into Governors blocking constituents on FB and Twitter. Asking for screenshots, so if this is you maybe think about sending them an email.

(Wonder what kind of response it'd generate if this were extended to include state legislators...)

Re: “NEH grant goes to state archives for newspaper digitization

Interesting. Will be curious to see what makes the cut. Generally I believe this is done as a whole page at a time scan, so if there's news, editorial, ads, etc. it's all there (much more time [and $$$$$] consuming if you've gotta stop and read everything to select a few articles). That said, I suspect small town papers will get cut out early, and the priority will be anything from Little Rock - that's usually the way.
