I caught COVID last Friday. I’m vaxed, boosted, and I don’t go unmasked indoors. My best contact tracing puts me getting it at the bodega from an unmasked patron or employee. I woke up Saturday morning with a painful sore throat, and immediately took a home test that turned positive […]

Coming Distractions


There was an unveiling ceremony for a new Nancy Reagan stamp at the White House this week. Combined with Biden’s claims of McConnell and other Republicans being reasonable, I’m not too confident that tonight’s insurrection hearing will have much effect on stopping our slide into fascism.

Forever Stamping Out Democracy



Usually the news cycle moves on a week after a tragedy, but since Congress is still on vacation, there’s not much new news. The Uvalde police continue to look guilty of dereliction of duty as they refuse to cooperate with investigators. Which puts everybody who kissed cop butt over the […]

Claiming these spontaneous, harmless protests are “protoviolence” and beyond the scope of the First Amendment is the first step to normalize the looming crackdowns when the (illegitimate) […]

Susan Collins’s Concerns



The repealing of Roe v. Wade was inevitable when Anthony Kennedy mysteriously retired. I’d love for the reason for that, or the identity of Kavanaugh’s debt-absolving benefactors to be leaked, too. Leaving Merrick Garland’s nomination to die on the vine and RBG dying for real were just gravy for the […]

Quick Fixes for the Supreme Court


The housing market is insane everywhere. We (as in my community and my family personally) need a lot more of the affordable options built in Boston, where Boomers are squatting on properties they snatched up in the ’80s and are fighting every new building proposal, despite being on a major […]
