    And here are New Yorker and NPR articles about it.

    These songs, along with hundreds of others, were collected for an archive of lyrics by amateur Jewish authors in the Soviet Union during World War II and documented by a team of researchers from the Cabinet of Jewish Culture from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, which operated under the auspices of the Soviet government. They describe the Jewish wartime experience, telling tales not just of Holocaust survivors but of Jewish soldiers in the Red Army, women working in factories on the home front and Polish refugees building new lives in far-flung corners of the Soviet empire.

    As a voice of support:

    It seems like people are using "news" as shorthand for "important." There is such a thing as fashion news. The First Lady is a former fashion model, so presumably what she wears is something she gives more thought to than most. And whatever the intended message, there clearly is one. Whether people here think it's worth paying attention to is obviously up to them, but the presidency is part pageantry and plenty would disagree that the study of political fashion is vapid.

    Even if it were, in isolation, fluff, the mere fact that people care about it makes it less than fluff, as much as it may pain some.

    Can’t recall. I installed quantum a while ago and I didn’t like that the blocking settings weren’t granular.

    DAE have the experience that Firefox’s tracker blocking is just too blunt? It broke so many sites that I had to switch to a third party tool.

    I just noticed you can't comment if you don't subscribe to a group, so that's another deterrent to the situation you described.
