Re: Calling 2020 for Entropy

Crap. Justice GInsburg is dead. I shudder to think who Trump will pick to replace her.

Re: Small joys and random good things

Oooh, sounds pretty! Can you post a photo of it? When I can't go secondhand-treasure hunting myself, I still get a vicarious thrill from seeing other peoples' scores.

Re: Fire

When Jeff was watching a weather forecast for our Atlanta suburb, they mentioned the possibility of shifting winds bringing some of that western wildfire smoke all the way over to us , almost 3,000 miles away. We've had wildfire smoke here for the past 3 days. It's way up at 30,000 feet, so it does...

I continue to be gobsmacked by Trump's handling of coronavirus, given that his own elderly demographic of supporters is most likely to be killed by it. Granted, earlier there was that revelation that he and Kushner decided to deliberately ignore it on the theory that it would hit blue states harder ...

Re: Rules, RVs, and a four-story phallus: the HOA thread

I kinda wish someone would spam Highway's HOA with lots and lots of "concerns" about the reptilian lizard-aliens who, according to David Icke, have control of all major world leaders. Including a certain HOA, ahem.

ICE chose to deport a key witness in an investigation into the sexual abuse of concentration-camp inmates. At least no tax money was spent on any social-welfare programs attempting to HELP people like her, though; THAT would make a travesty of freedom, human rights and all decent things this country...

Oh, and regarding the whole business of "What could an American president do, to make a pandemic better or worse" -- I'd say "holding maskless, shoulder-to-shoulder campaign rallies" goes in the "worse" category. He had one in Nevada last weekend.

Possible more disturbing than his third term commentary is his insistence that the only way he can lose is if the Democrats cheat. I do fear he will NOT accept the results of an election where he loses.
