This is the school district whose superintendent, Marcus Chambers, is pals w/ Matt Gaetz (a DeSantis ally). Unlike some other Florida districts, Chambers “gave in” to DeSantis’s ban on mask mandates.

And with that, this is an open thread.
What a dynamite post. Great cartoons.
Sorry that the 29th is meh. :one of those tear-y faces: and a hug!
That monkey is adorbz. I bet he’s mimicking the humans he sees with masks.
And the weavers burial story is amazing, Sending to my sisters who knit and weave!
Yup …. far smarter than most of Mississippi
Happy 29th, JJ!
Great ‘toons. I especially like the one about the sheep. Lol! Sheep — and monkeys — are smarter than the MAGAts anytime.
Congrats on your anniversary, JJ!
Love the Joan Crawford graphic.
The spinner’s grave find is fascinating. I really like the star-shaped whorls. I have a few pewter spindle whorls which are replications of medieval styles, but none of the star-shaped pottery ones. Someone on Etsy used to make them. There are some lovely replica pewter whorls from the UK here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/NiddyNoddyUK?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=581087808§ion_id=24116536
I don’t know if it’s worse because we knew this was coming, or because we didn’t know for sure until they started again.
If most people could see that women are human, atrocities like these would lead to a global convulsion which ended them.
Instead? Cost of doing business.
