Today’s (late) Morning Buzz is going to be brief. I’m sure by now everyone has seen the news reports about last night’s police shootings. I encourage you to read the ELGL post here, and take part in the #BlackLivesELGL twitter conversation this afternoon at 4 pm Eastern. That being said, it is my hope that some “oddly satisfying” gifs will bring a smile to your face.
