    Morning…I feel like every day is the same day as before.

      Yeah. It would have been such a relief if the country could have put out some of the fires — mended the Court, passed voting rights, passed BBB — and we could all exhale for a bit.

      But no. Let’s all just keep sitting in the flames with the little dog saying, “This is fine.”

      Manchin & Sinema have been an infuriating surprise, but there’s also the insane lack of urgency I can’t understand.

    I’ve been tested repeatedly to determine whether I had strep or tonsillitis, whether I had the flu and if so which strain, etc. Getting tested to determine what you have so it can be properly treated so you don’t get much much sicker is a thing. DeSantis is an idiot and he makes people around him dumber from having to listen to him.

      Just a routine exam involves testing your blood pressure and giving a blood sample for testing. I actually have not been tested for covid, but I sure as heck have two vaccinations and a booster plus a stash of N95 masks.

        Getting blood drawn from a vein is much more painful than getting a vaccination. Just look at the needle size! I suspect a lot of the anti-vax rhetoric arises from fear of needles, especially in men who are too embarrassed to admit it.

    JJ I’m ecstatic about the JWST deployment and have been watching NASA’s tracking stats on YouTube (gosh their PR is trrble) since the launch which I got up early to watch. Waiting for the results will be hard but I’m stoked beyond measure!

      As a teacher, our byword was always that ‘there are no stupid questions.’ So Monsieur Cole couldn’t stand it and set out to prove me wrong. 🙄

      Christ on a bike, bozo. One little internet search would have given you about 10,000 answers, all the same. WE WANT POCKETS.

      (Historical note: medieval women had pockets. Then in the late Middle Ages / early Renaissance, 1500s?, when there was also a lot of witchburning, some men made the point that the conniving little so-and-sos could be carrying anything, anything!, in those pockets. They decreed women’s clothes should not have pockets. I am not making this up. Pockets are political.)
