Perhaps the background would be a wall topped with barbed wire, bearing a sign reading "Location shooting: Mulan. Trespassers will be re-educated."

My (hopefully final) take on the Australian government and news media vs Google and Facebook saga.
I'm sure Garland knows that he would have no case for prosecuting Trump for criminal incitement on January 6. The question is whether he'll promise to do it anyway in order to please the Senate. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/02/21/attorney-general-hearing-merrick-garland-trump-too/6781444002/

Reparations to descendants of slaves can't possibly be done justly after a century and a half. How many people can establish their ancestry?
