I have thought a lot about it and honestly, I think it’s about control. I think people feel so scared and out of control and angry right now, and for some people the only way to feel like they have any control/pretend things aren’t bad is to make a decision to not wear a mask. It’s absolutely an emotional decision Read more

Sure. But that’s just my read...I know there will be other views, and lots more people are better-informed than I am. We’ll have to see.

Hmm. Mark Joseph Stern seems to agree with me (I confined my review above to the New York case, Vance.):

(Edited briefly after posting)

The first paragraph of Roberts’ conclusion says “nobody is above the law,”; the second says that it goes back to the District Court (which the Second Circuit held had erred vis-a-vis the Younger claim): Read more

Two cities ago, I had a cat that was clearly approaching the end, but who wasn’t there yet. I asked what you did, how I’d know, and our vet told me, “Pets aren’t like us. They want to live and be happy until it isn’t comfortable anymore.” He said it more eloquently and it felt more meaningful.

I’ve euthanized two pets Read more

To me, she comes across as stunningly lacking in self-awareness. Over and over she claims one thing (I have no strategy) only to contradict herself (the strategy of choosing recipes for different media channels). That’s exactly what she does with Kondo and Teigen - snarls at them for doing exactly what she has said Read more

Oh, and I meant to share this important bit of information: if you are losing out on the tremendous experience of getting your stimulus check with our dear leader’s signature because you have direct deposit, never fear! You will get a signed letter from him, on White House stationary, through the IRS!!  I got mine Read more

Is anyone dealing with massive guilt? I’ve been trying to keep up my meditation but it’s gotten harder as this goes on, because a lot of my practice is gratitude based but when I focus on gratitude I feel SO GUILTY about not having it as badly as other people do. Instead of feeling reassured and positive when I try to Read more

I know I groused about this in the morning OT, but man, this homeschooling thing is... well, quite frankly, it sucks. I can’t stand over 3 teenagers all day long and constantly tell them to check in with teachers and do their work. They each managed to get only 1 or 2 things done and submitted today (out of, like, 5 Read more

Keep your distance from other people, don’t touch your face and wash your hands when you get home and wipe down the door handles once a day, are the guidelines I’ve been seeing. That’s it. Read more

If you enjoy some Characters with a capital C, I say watch. There's some upsetting animal abuse stuff, (not graphic really, but a lot is discussed). But the story is just so insane it's hard to look away.

Okay then...I’m having a bit of frustration with the new (outdoor) dress code, as in: to mask OR not to mask, that is the (current) question. Also what of full-face scarves and what about full-head covers, with perhaps special glasses OR swim-style goggles OR maybe even a plastic face shield(hood)? Read more

I totally hear you. My kids had our first week of remote learning this week. Yesterday we got a survey from the school asking for feedback. I was like, great, I can let them know that this is not working and the expectations are way too high. Wrong. The whole survey was BS like “What are you most proud of yourself for Read more

I think this weekend is bathroom and floor deep-clean day. Like, moving the furniture clean.
