9.21.21- No Takeaways

In Which We Discuss:

1. 9/11 is over, but you can still buy Lila’s book, Some Kids Left Behind.

4. Losing statewide office once is one of the ways to get yourself onto a ballot for statewide office in Texas.

5. Infrastructure season update: lol.

6. Joe Biden, just like last time he was in the Executive Branch, is not afraid to deport you.
