I’m not usually a petition signer, but where do I sign?

Also, sorry, blasting this everywhere:

Media outlets have played a crucial role during the COVID-19 crisis to educate the public and provide needed emergency information. To ensure the legitimacy of this year’s elections, they should go a step further and offer regular, timely instructions about how to vote during this national emergency. And they should start right away, every day and in every publication, perhaps with a “democracy box” on their front page or home page with details about how to register and cast a ballot.

I vaguely recall a sci-fi TV movie from the 70s. Plot: Conflicts in a large space station (a city in orbit), and with Earth. The station’s citizens held an election, and as the televised station-wide debates proceeded, fact-checked information would scroll across the bottom of TV screens in real-time. Interesting concept.

TRUMP MELTS DOWN

He was literally melting: his upper lip was so saturated with sweat, I’m amazed he didn’t wipe his suit sleeve on it. Reminded me of Nixon in August '74.
