What to Doc: Baseball is supposedly coming back next month. I still find that hard to believe. But just in case, let’s get warmed up with a great baseball doc that takes place far from the majors: The Battered Bastards of Baseball.

+ What to Read: “As the new President’s actions set off alarm bells, the two began corresponding. They realized that there was no single organization doing what they were talking about: safeguarding basic principles, like checks and balances, and the idea that no one is above the law, against a perceived threat to democracy itself.” Time with a great look at a great organization called Protect Democracy. Trench Lawfare: Inside the Battles to Save Democracy From the Trump Administration. Early on, these folks saw the threats we all see now, and they started doing something about it. I’m a proud supporter of Protect Democracy.

+ What to Watch: This is a great time to watch “Anna Deavere Smith’s powerful one-woman theater piece about the 1991 Rodney King beating, the violent aftermath of the 1992 verdict, and the lasting impact of the L.A. riots on America’s conscience.” Twilight. And the only version I could find isn’t the highest quality, but it’s worth watching Smith’s other amazing one woman show, Fires in the Mirror, about the Crown Heights Riots. (I taught high school in that neighborhood during this era.)
