Sen. Richard Blumenthal Tag

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced another round of questioning in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. A few moments stuck out to me: Sen. Da Nang Dick Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) told Zuckerberg to ban Steve Bannon and Dorsey admitted it was a mistake for the platform to ban The New York Post's story on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) had a close call with a train on Friday while at a news conference with Milford Mayor Ben Blake about railway safety. From WGGB/ABC40:
It was a close call at a Friday event for U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut. Ironically, he was holding a press conference about increasing railway safety across the state. That’s when a passing train sped by, just inches away from Blumenthal’s back. [...] The event was aimed at decreasing safety violations on the railways. Blumenthal says there were 139 violations since 2004. He says per 100 miles of track, Metro-North had five times the number of safety defects than any other commuter railroad in the country.
It was just as Mayor Blake said, "Safety, as you know, is paramount," when the train whipped by and temporarily disrupted the news conference. As news reports and other sites reporting on this story have pointed out, that yellow safety line is there for a reason.  It's a good idea to stand behind it.
