Saturday Six (pepperidge farm remembers edition)

It was again a weird stressful week at work. I didn’t start working on the Friday Five until later than usual on Thursday night. And then I realized I was too sleepy to finish.

Anyway, it’s time for another Saturday Six in which I bring you: one story about arrests that should happen more often, two about real assaults on religious liberty, the top six stories of the week, six stories of interest to queers and out allies, six stories about justice, and six stories about treason and terror. Plus some things I wrote.
