On mental health lockdown from Twitter for the foreseeable. Stay safe, everyone, and keep a level head ✊

NICARians! If you're not too hungover/still drunk on Saturday afternoon, consider dropping in on my exploratory dataviz workshop! There'll be pandas and charts, which should be all you need to know ⚜️ ireapps.github.io/nicar-2020-s
