There is some really interesting stuff happening on Twitter.

Louise Mensch has been riveted on the Russian connection.

Amy Siskind is keeping track of the "changes" or loss of freedom since Jan. 20.

Mike Farb is on the trail of voter fraud/hacking.

Adam Khan is tracking all the corruption in the trump organization/crime connections.

I know there are a lot more. Some others I follow: David Fahrentold, Michael Isakoff, Jester Actual, Caroline O., Malcolm Nance, Andrea Chalupa, Sarah Kendzior, and several more who are digging into all things trump.

Happy May Day!



Solidarity with the workers of the world!

It isn't being obstructionist to stand up for what is right.

So far, drumpf's proposals have been batsh*t wingnut and unconstitutional. Not hard to oppose that!

Endearing tweet about a deaf baby being able to hear for the first time:

Today's super-cute Google Doodle celebrates the invention of Camembert cheese:

(from the slide show)

On what would have been her 256th birthday, Friday's Google Doodle honors Marie Harel, the inventor of Camembert cheese.
The story of one of France's most popular cheeses goes back to 1791, when Harel was a 30-year-old dairymaid in Vimoutiers in Normandy, northern France.
Legend has it that a priest from the northern region of Brie fleeing the anti-clerical French Revolution that was sweeping the country, took shelter near Vimoutiers and taught Harel how to make the soft cheese famous in his home region.
Harel added her own twist on the recipe, making her Camembert cheese in smaller wheels and without added cream. She also packaged the finished product in thin, round, wooden containers that have become an international icon.

Cute Google Doodle today honors the Cassini Spacecraft.



Today's Google Doodle shows the Cassini spacecraft passing by Saturn, in a cheery picture. But it is perhaps one of the most beautifully tragic images ever featured on its homepage.

The Cassini spacecraft, pictured happily snapping photos of Saturn and its rings in the Doodle, is only doing so because it is approaching its grand finale. When that finally arrives, it will see the craft plummet into the atmosphere of Saturn and get entirely burnt up, destroying the craft and bringing an end to its 20 year mission.

But Nasa must destroy Cassini. That is in part because doing so furthers the work of planetary preservation, ensuring that the craft doesn't go on to drop its life on Saturn or elsewhere, helping plant life that could upset anything that already exists there and stop us seeing whether or not there is alien life in our universe.

Other! I ran for delegate to the DNC once.

Not really an "office." It was fun, but my candidate (Clark) dropped out and that was that.

I'm not very outgoing, so I would make lousy politician.
