Good morning, so…the end of Fat Bear Week at fatbearweek.org is coming up Tuesday. Have you checked out the competition?
I kept hearing about Fat Bear Week and thought it was a celebration of body positivity within a gay subculture. It turns out it is about actual bears! Either way, I am here for it. 🐻🏳️🌈 pic.twitter.com/1hMFrCXm8w— Lynda Carter (@RealLyndaCarter) October 2, 2021
I don’t know about you all, but I need a little diversion from the rest of the crap going on this week.

About 400-450 people at the #womensmarch2021 Reproductive Rights rally/march in Fargo, ND, today. Great turnout given we're in such a horribly deep-red, holier-than-thou state. Proud to be part of it. pic.twitter.com/qP71tkh3Gs— IV Words 🌎 (@IV_Words) October 2, 2021

I live in Missouri. We only have ONE Planned Parenthood location in the entire State. It happens to be in my town. I drive by it nearly every time I’m out. A bunch of Evangelicals perch outside it everyday. We have to protect the ability of Women to choose. #WomensMarch2021 pic.twitter.com/SAgOrbojas— Julie(Jules)Lamb🇺🇸🏴💉 (@JulieJulesLamb) October 2, 2021

The #WomensMarch2021 #Philadelphia was organized by two 17 year olds. I'm so impressed! It was very well attended, and well organized.They aren't even old enough to vote. We can not become complacent.#StandupFightBack pic.twitter.com/RTQwAnjvO7— Kay_luv (@LuvKlp212229) October 2, 2021

"Almost 4 of 10 pieces of first-class mail will see slower delivery, according to Paul Steidler, … an expert on the postal service. That "means mail delivery will be slower than in the 1970s," he said, calling DeJoy's plan "disastrous.""https://t.co/FklW9YC2L7— Maddow Blog (@MaddowBlog) October 1, 2021

This is an open thread.
So , when the news dropped that trump fired his ass for the sexual harassment…I knew there had to be more than just the average predatory requirement usually seen in trump employees.
Well, try and have a nice day.
Oh and I missed this:
Not “romantic overtures” — Predatory, bullying man who who doesn’t comprehend that ‘no’ means ‘no’ and who continued to demand sexual services.
Corey Lewandowski is from Lowell, not Boston.
You would expect David Corn to get it wrong…right?
Loved the images, cartoons and photos today! I especially relished the signs from the women’s marches and seeing people show up for those!
Fat bears and flying duck orchids – THANK YOU JJ!!!!!!
That orchid is especially wonderful!
Spectacular flying duck orchid. That particular kind of orchid was one of my research topics in the high and far off times. Mine were also duck-like, but a bit less so. I mean, this one has eyes!
