3/4 of a bottle of Bordeaux so far.
Judge Jackson is a member of the Supreme Court now. I still have some revulsion at the racist treatment she got.
It was appalling but not surprising. The Republican party has doubled down on its racism time and again. It is racist, admits it, and acts on it through voter suppression.
Estimates for the hurricane are in the $50-70 billion range. Insurance companies in Florida that haven't already gone bankrupt or left have been dramatically raising premiums. Looks like they are about to go up again. One disaster expert I saw said that a house bought for $300K might cost $500K just to replace the building. A lot of people won't be able to swing that. On top of that, the increasing water damage means the expensive new regs are already obsolete...
Floridians? Fuck them. They elected that climate denier as governor. I hate Florida anyway. It is a mildewed backwater except for Miami which is just a hot-humid Baltimore.
Zelensky has asked for accelerated admission to NATO. He won't get it, but I like the idea. And yes, I do realise it's a dramatic escalation, but it would deliver the message I want to send..
From your mouth to God's ears.
If you add it all up, it looks like Putin will use the pipeline attack as an excuse to attack non-Russian energy. It fits a pattern that he has had since the beginning. So.. I'm thinking he did it, and that's why.
Remember when Trump threw towels in Puerto Rico? PR needs a lot, but at least Biden is trying.
I am so embarrassed about how the US handles PR. Shame on us. It ought to be a state or an independent country. Take a pick. Biden is much better than Trump when it comes to taking care of people. (Or just about anything else for that matter.)
The increased spending on kids is going to decline. Parts of it worked really well, and should be kept in a means tested form.
Don't know what you mean. Musing. The problem with our declining schools is not the amount of money spent. It is that they are undisciplined diploma mills.
That football player (American football) with the concussion, Tuo something, tells us the helmets need to be improved again. Or we could stop pretending football makes sense..

I make a pot blend that's about 90% CBD and 10% THC. My wife needs a hip replacement and is in a lot of pain. The prescription painkillers don't cut it, but with my pills she can get to sleep. It works.
Pot is a great drug for moderate to severe pain. Especially since we impale any doctor who writes a prescription for what actually works....opiates. Many years ago I suffered some severe burns. I shudder to think of what coping with that would have been like without appropriate opiates.
I hope your wife feels better. With a good Orthopod she will really like the results of the hip replacement I imagine.
I think everyone ought to own a cat. I am catless for the nonce as our cat died awhile ago. My wife is not ready for one yet. I want one a lot. Time spent with a cat on your lap does not count off of your life.
