Morning Coffee Link Roundup (12/8/22)

Good morning! Today is Thursday. You may notice that I have no links going to the New York Times today, which is fairly rare. It's because their union has requested that readers stand with their 24-hour work stoppage (this past midnight to this coming midnight). For more information on what's going on, just click the first link below. (Also I forgot to find a non-NYT link for this but Aaron Judge!!)
