There were 3 children killed at Saugus HS

The author of this piece in the Washington Post keeps saying there were 2 victims. 2 children lost to gun violence. No, there were 3 children lost, the shooter himself was 16 years old. What lead this kid to this point, where he thought the solution to something was this?

3 kids. Not 2.

NYT: How the swing states view the impeachment process

The New York Times sent people to six of the swing states to get an idea of how these areas view the impeachment process and how it might affect the next election. In FL of the four people who they quoted two were white women in their 70s from The Villages. That area is about as pro-Trump as you can get. They couldn’t find anyone better in the whole state of Florida?

Hey “Anonymous” – tell us something we don’t know

Laughed this morning when I saw this headline for a Philip Rucker story on washingtonpost.com:

Book by ‘Anonymous’ official describes Trump as cruel, inept and a danger to the nation

Do we really need Anonymous to tell us this? It’s been pretty obvious since the day Trump took office.

Shocked that in 2019 not only are there businesses that don’t have their own domain name but are still using @hotmail.com for email.

Backlash on Gruber re: Stallman comments

Just read this on Daring Fireball where John is describing some emails he received about his comments on Richard Stallman in a recent episode of The Talk Show:

I know your shows are meant to be funny and ad-lib’d to a degree but resorting to a random character attack is not something I want to listen to.

I know you don’t like e-mail but I really feel strongly about keeping this kind of garbage off the air. Nerd/geek culture is about acceptance not snobbishness and if your show claims to be for nerds, I don’t think it has place for this low-brow bullying.

Almost had to do a double-take when I read that. First of all, Stallman is a disgusting pig with a terrible history of mistreatment of women. He’s fucking fair game on the “random character attack” in my book.

As to nerd/geek culture being about “acceptance, not snobbishness”…when? Certainly not since I can remember. Nerds/geeks can be some of the absolute worst when it comes to that stuff. Wow.

Better late than never! Never thought these Morning Glory blooms would ever come and almost pulled down the plant because it’s so late in the season!

Austin Mann says serious photographers should get an 11 Pro because the increase in cost is worth it. Of course he only seems to really do anything with his around Sept. The rest of the time he’s using real cameras 😉
