I was annoyed at first that Roger wasn’t in focus. Actually liked that the shadow ended up being in focus more.
I am cheered, Ag, ‘cause you picked up so much of what I was trying to do here.

cropped edit so pretty and sparkly *applauds*
It wouldn’t be the first time they’d done it either — “adjusted” the draw to accommodate a particular superstar, regardless of all the caterwauling about “butbutbut the draw is AUTOMATIC (no it isn’t)“ but this mished-mashed mess they’ve made of the seeding is particularly egregious (and you know I had a few things to…

Vets and Congressional Vets clap back:
The really high road would’ve been to stay and fight and subvert and expose the utter and complete and rotten corruption - extremely prevalent on this topic in particular given repeated attempts at the school-to-prison pipeline - from the inside.
