Great piece, Jim, and a needed reminder that the fight is far from over.
I also want you to know that claps are f’d-up again. My Android phone got a Medium app update day before yesterday as evidenced by the rearrangement of the little clapping hands and other options. Since the my claps NEVER work the first time. They register but if I leave the post and return, the claps aren’t there. I’ve managed to get claps to register — sometimes — if I clap, leave, return, clap again, leave, return, clap again. However, if that doesn’t work. I’ve tried 4 times to clap for this piece. Each time the claps show up but when I leave the piece and return. If I look under Claps on my homepage, most of what I’ve over the last two days aren’t there. Can you reach out to your Medium Staff person who helped before. This is so unfair to those who get paid for their writing.
