I’m so relieved Ji-ah lived. Everything else in the finale went pretty much as expected (although I hated Diana becoming a killer in such a young age but I’m all for the adventures of a Cyborg Girl and Black Shoggoth). But Ji-ah dying was my biggest fear about the finale. I was afraid of them using a trope that Read more

In this version Dexter is a lumberjack who only cuts down other lumberjacks...with his sharp wit!

But the follow-up to that is Pence can’t pardon him for state crimes. SDNY is hot on his trail.

There is just something so very wrong with our system in that the best way to get way with crimes is to hold the highest office in the country. And the thing is, it’s not even a law that a president can’t be prosecuted, just a “policy.” Why is no one willing to break the policy?

Sniveling hobgoblin and treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin admitted that nearly $4 million earmarked for 9/11 first responders has been withheld by the department since 2004. Read more

I think that makes sense, though I think most of it has to do with the election and giving dems leeway, both with undecideds who may swing some of the closer races down the ballot and with general electorate. Read more

I cannot explain how hard Biden winning the rating war against Trump made me laugh. Especially because normally I don’t think that really matters that much, but Trump has made his ratings such a source of pride that this has to hurt him so bad. What probably makes it even worse is that the general consensus on Biden’s Read more

Strapped for cash as a university student, I figured I nailed the economical-but-fun genre by deciding to go as a bag of leaves. It was seasonal and appropriate! I would be cute! The maples behind my residence provided the required foliage, garbage bags were around for the taking and I added newspaper for stuffing. I Read more

I grew up poor so our Halloween costumes were always homemade. When I was in 3rd grade, I wanted to be a ninja, but the best we could pull off was red sweatpants, a red sweatshirt, and a red t-shirt somehow wrapped around my head with the neck hole over my face to make the ninja mask. Read more

Another illustration that cancel culture is definitely a very common, very prevalent thing, but just not in the way the people who never shut up about it think.

I agree. Given his health issues and the fact that He never struck me as completely dumb (just cruel and ruthless), I’m sure Christie did know that COVID was dangerous before he got it. But the influence of peer pressure does not end in high school, and the public’s adoption of mask (or sometimes lack there of) weari Read more
