Heading into the final weeks of the year and threw together some unrelated news gags together to get ahead of schedule. AI art is this year’s NFTs. Everywhere at the moment, but its ubiquity will be its undoing. Or so I tell myself.
Patriot Front dipshits had a little fascist parade through Boston over the Fourth of July weekend. And unlike in Idaho where they were arrested in a U-Haul on their way to disrupt a Pride event, Boston’s worst gave them an escort throughout the city.
Kudos to the real patriots who counter-protested these goons.
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 last two years in a tricky spot.
Marches and protests against gun violence are planned across the country next weekend. Given what happened in 2020, I’m not expecting anything to happen, but the outrage at our leaders’ inaction is only growing.
A shoe’s not at the center of a culture war … yet. Give it a day or two.
I’ve been reading short story anthologies during quarantine to keep things light. I just finished an Asimov one, but the next book on my nightstand is “The Grapes of Wrath.” That should be some good escapist fun that has nothing to do with our current situation.
