    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    When Lindsay Graham was attacking Trump, his favorability among Republicans tanked. Once he started working with Trump, his favorability rose significantly. It's entirely possible that's all it took to buy his loyalty to country. Which tells you a lot about what a hollow man he truly is.

    network The Good Place Renewed For Season 4

    I also highly recommend The Good Place podcast (which now has about 50 episodes) that interviews key cast and crew members associated with each episode. The series is hosted by Marc Evan Jackson (who plays Shawn), who does a wonderful job of being both an insider and fanboy of the series.

    Cats are jerks

    Willow, our black-and-white cat, is super friendly whenever she finds me in the bathroom. She rubs up against my ankles, rolls on her back to be petted, stretches out in delight on the bathroom mat. The rest of the time and the rest of the house... not so much. So strange.

    Client/User: I want the text to wrap around the image on the page. Me: You can't do that on an O365 site. There's a web part for text, and there's another web part for an image. Client/User: But I used to have text wrapped around images on my page. Me: Yes, because your intranet used to be...

    The Future is Shocking

    Labor is devalued when there are too many people, more than are needed to perform essential work. That puts all the power on the side of the employers. One of the side effects of the plague pandemics that swept through Europe and removed half to 2/3 of the population was that the surviving...

    network The Good Place Renewed For Season 4

    That episode was brilliant. There are so many good episodes to choose from, but that one is my hands-down favorite of the series. During the hiatus I started binge-watching my way through Season 1 and 2 while I wait for the Season 4 conclusion. I just finished the Trolley Problem, which stands...

    network The Good Place Renewed For Season 4

    After Chidi's revival episode, the show is on break until January, then resumes with the final four episodes. I'm chewing my nails, thinking "Please, please, please don't fork this ending up." After the moderately unsatisfactory ending to Game of Thrones, I'm nervous about finales.

    Didn't take Twitter followers long to find the guy's name, Facebook page, Twitter account, and employer's name. Tommy Calloway is going to pay heavily for that fleeting but highly visible moment of White Male Entitlement.

    WTF Climate Change News

    I made the mistake of reading the Comments section of a newspaper article on a Michigan community's efforts to bolster their response to extreme climate. What a cluster fuck of competing perspectives. The deniers were in the majority, covering: get a grip, this is just natural variability and...

    We're at war with Russia, but they're winning without bombs and military forces. We've become so focused on military strength that even when our own intelligence services describe what Putin is doing, there doesn't appear to be any general alarm that we're under attack. We're still stuck in a...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    Yeah, I'm sure Putin would be absolutely delighted if the U.S. de-escalated the military. There's more than one kind of peace. Totalitarian regimes are very peaceful. As long as you behave.

    Jokes are never funny if you have to explain, and it obviously wasn't that funny to begin with. If we ever reached the point (extremely unlikely) that Gabbard was the Democratic nominee, we'd be under seige by Russia. Or Martians.

    His brain is melting and it's not front-page news. I just don't get it.

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    I can't see it ever being an issue, but yeah, I would not cast a vote for Tulsi Gabbard if she were the Democratic nominee for president. I don't trust her, and the more I read about her past history and her current history, the less I trust her. There's something deeply hinky about her, on a...
