It's Monday. Here we go again. Is anyone else thankful for the spring recess? Maybe this crazy news train will slow down for a few weeks. If you are able, use the extra time to get out and be seen by your member of Congress or senators (Thanks Sen. Klubuchar!). Enjoy a march or meet for your friends for a learning session (or beers). I will try to list some options for you here.
Our first Call to Action is brought to you by Mariah. Thanks for the reminder to stay on task!

Just yesterday, a Russian programmer was arrested in Spain. Could he be another thread in the cloth?
Whoops! Jared Kushner met with an Russian bank and forgot to disclose it to the White House There are a lot of forgetful people in this administration.
