We visited a good friend who lives in the path of totality for the eclipse. It was great; the birds stopped singing and the crickets and frogs piped up.

I'm getting tired of my job. Too much travel to get there, too little money for lots of responsibility.

I'm going to find something better.

Safe and sound in the East Village after another marvelous weekend in the Catskills.

I haven't been here much lately. While we were on vacation in RI, Meccalopolis proposed and I accepted. So now, we're not just living together. We're engaged.

Yearly reminder that April Fool's day is a gigantic nightmare for loads of people, in particular Neurodiverse folks, and people with anxiety issues. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that you have a temporary excuse for being a dick to people. You don't.

While railroads spent more on stock buybacks than rail safety, Warren Buffett became $42 billion richer & is worth $106 billion. On Friday, Buffett became $435 million richer, enough to provide 7 paid sick days to every rail worker in America for an entire year. Ban the buybacks. twitter.com/CNBC/status/162948

America doesn’t have a labor shortage. There is a living wage shortage, a hazard pay shortage, a child care shortage, a paid sick leave shortage, and a health care shortage.

Transphobia, genocide 

Michael Knowles, a commentator at Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire website, has called for the criminalization of all trans people. I sure hope all the people "just asking questions" about trans people who *toooootally* aren't transphobic will pause from concern-trolling about kids to actually pushing back on calls for genocide against trans people. mediamatters.org/daily-wire/da

As DeSantis signs a law today stripping Disney of control of its Orlando district, he criticizes what he considers to be "woke" policies. "We want our kids to be kids. We want them to be able to enjoy entertainment... without having an agenda imposed upon them."

In 1977, NASA began looking for women astronauts.

Sally Ride spotted an ad about it in the Stanford school newspaper & applied. She was one of six women chosen.

In 1983, Ride became the first American woman to travel into space. Her role as a mission specialist was to work a robotic arm to put satellites into space.

Ride went on to teach at UC San Diego & worked to promote women & girls in STEM. She also wrote children’s books about exploring #space. nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/ #HistoryRemix

Tennessee's clownservative governor Bill Lee, who's about to sign a bill making it illegal to dress in drag, is seen here... dressed in drag.

Of course, the unspoken excuse is "Oh, c'mon, it's different when STRAIGHT guys dress in drag," but try writing that into law.
