Notes:
May 30: There was talk about a MAGA rally at the White House which I presume could be identified by the hats and lack of masks, and which would eventually turn into a MALA (Make America Lynch Again) protest. Realistically, when there are no public bathrooms available, hanging out waiting for a...

Lee from the newly-renamed Emancipation Park in downtown Charlottesville. Protesters...
