I'm starting a new Boomer thread for Champions of this Crisis Era not specifically connected to the COVID-19 pandemic (there's another thread for that). I'm going to initiate it with a hat tip and bow to this particular Boomer, going after that despicable gang of mobsters currently trying to take over the country. Let's hear it for New York's Attorney General, Letitia James, nemesis of the NRA and the Trump Organization. She'd go after Putin too if he were in her jurisdiction.
