NYT Spelling Bee 2-24-21 final

Hello from Day 32 of the reopening of California. Today Louis DeJoy was back in front of congressional committees. I had been unaware of this until late tonight. They say that he refused to step down, so we remain annoyed. OMG James Comer just invoked Adam Schiff in his quick-to-please-Trump opening statements, as DeJoy was elected by the board of governors with strong support by Trump, and DeJoy immediately dismantled all kinds of necessary equipment in advance of the election that was heavily vote-by-mail. Also it sure sounds like he called Congresswoman Maloney “Bologna.” Crazy. Jody Hice’s opening statements also included a quick appeal to Donald Trump. Gross.

Yesterday I missed RATTRAP as the only word I am really familiar with.
