Funding for COVID mitigation didn’t make it into the recently-passed spending bill. Pretty great timing, as we’re about to reach 1 million official COVID deaths in the United States, and the BA.2 omicron variant seems to be fueling another surge just as every level government is throwing mask-burning parties instead […]

Newly Diagnosed Ailments


Republican states are wilding out with anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-trans, and anti-everyone-who-isn’t-them bills.

All the hateful and dumb shit on his podcast precedes the pandemic and Spotify knew who they were giving […]

This marks twenty years of me making fake Valentine’s cards for cartoons. I might’ve missed several years when I was on the NYT grind, so don’t quote me on that. I had a cold this week that was surprisingly not COVID. While I don’t recommend getting sick, any excuse to […]

2022 Valentines
