Hey Goddess, this is farewell. Jezebel has canceled me - not merely into “the grays”, but actually disappeared (evidently for criticizing an offensive post yesterday). Read more

Dejoy has agreed to stop further erosion of the postal service - but those 600 sorting machines that were disappeared in the past 6 weeks? No commitment to return them (some have been destroyed already). There’s a crime in tampering with even a single piece of mail; tampering with 31,000 pieces of mail per hour times Read more

About half an hour after the performance shown at the end of the DNC came this pretty terrific discussion between Brian Williams (whose description of the look of the video matches yours: “was it like being alone in a studio performing the recording of a Broadway cast album, but alone with a green screen?”) and Billy Read more

It’s all the same family, of course, but check the spelling. Felipe VI, as sitting King of Spain is the highest ranking extant monarch of the bunch (there are lesser cousins and various dubious relatives holding real and vestigial duchies, principalities, and such) but the French spell it Bourbon and the Spanish spell Read more

I’ve been around the kinjasphere for well over a decade and I DON’T WANT IT TO DIE. I want them to clean up their act and turn things around. My comment above is a suicide intervention!

Ashley: I knew nothing of this, so I did a quick search. The one that jumped out at me - and SHOULD HAVE DONE YOU - was George Conway’s plea (more specifically, “desist”) to the media to stop covering his minor teenage daughter.
