Hundreds of baby boomers are taking classes at the University of Minnesota as part of its Senior Citizen Education Program — and all for just $10 per credit. “This is our opportunity to study those things we’ve spent a lifetime being curious about,” one student tells @KevTibs.
So we (millennials) are the problem and it’s okay for them b/c they deserve it right? 🤦🏻♀️ baby boomers sold out so hard y’all. I wish their younger selves (the anti-war protestors and hippies that Nixon despised) could come to 2019 and slap themselves.

Elizabeth Warren is every exuberant ally mom at #Pride after buying something rainbow from Target—and I’m here for it.
Damn. This makes me want to get a beer with Warren, and by "get a beer," I mean "put her in charge of everything." https://twitter.com/adamcbest/status/1134182150989914116 …
