Observations from my trip: – life is better when you assume positive intent The most interesting aspect of Vegas for me was the openness of the sex trade and that the abolitionists representing I believe Shared Hope International were holding up signs talking about the shame of Vegas, selling her daughters to sin, but having […]
So it’s been busy times for me. Lots of physio, and adjusting to a new environment. Trying not to pay too much attention to Trump and the Russians; it’s not like any of this is news to me, right? The Chinese recently put quantum encrypted satellites in orbit; I can’t help but wonder if the […]

This week has brought us, among other things, the promise that if we vote for the Conservative Party, that it will lead to the development of a a “Barbaric cultural […]
Well this is turning out to be a very interesting election. For me, the whole election nonsense actually began last fall at about this point in time, well before it was actually called. For me it really began with the mefloquine issue becoming a regular mental gnat. I spoke to one of the loudest voice […]
I swear sometimes that administration bullshit was specifically designed with the sole purpose of making people whose lives are already complicated with ridiculous amounts of unnecessary drama more difficult.
