CoViD-19: Child Vaccinations Begin | Keeping An Eye On The UK | "Shoppers Broke The Supply Chain" | Senate Blocks Voting Rights...Again |

Runway Walk of the Pygmy Hippo (Taken 11.3.21)

I'm learning to be better about turning off the news. The punditry on the election was so awful leading up to Tuesday's elections and even worse after the fact. We have a ritual around the house of watching all the late night host monologues on YouTube when they publish between about 8-10pm PST and really sometimes that's all I can take, and even that is sometimes painful. I thought with TFG gone we'd be done with it, but it's like freaking whack-a-mole with who can be most outrageous, most absurd, the worst hot take, the most abhorrent. Today the Senate once again wouldn't even have discussions on the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and that tells you everything you need to know about the racists who are fighting all progress at any cost, appealing to the most ignorant and basest and racist among us. And with gerrymandering, party politics, infighting, voter disinformation and suppression, it works. And don't think for one second that OPEC isn't intentionally trying to fuck Biden in the ass to get their puppet back in office in three years. It sucks. So we just have to forge ahead and I guess rise above, even when it is really, really hard. 

We went to the San Diego Zoo today and it was nice and empty, but they'll start closing at 5pm next week after Daylight Saving Time comes to an end, so I'll have to get used to that. Beyond that, life around the abode is good so I'm gonna wrap and spend some time with my people.  

Stay safe out there.
