Okay, I have a question about Sirius in a rental car

Not sure if this is in right place, but here goes.
I plan to rent a car in Wash. State in October. I asked the rental company if I can use my Sirius account in their car. They said yes; also confirmed by Sirius.
However, I have Sirius app on my phone. Can't I use that, if I connect phone to sound system in car?

This is why we can't have nice things

Here in Los Angeles we have a new multi million dollar bridge, the 6th Street Bridge. It's only 2 weeks old but already has graffiti, loud racing, racing marks on asphalt. What the hell people??!

So Malcolm Nance is appearing locally tonight

Through a virtual appearance associated with a local bookstore. I've been trying to get a ticket on their website but have not been successful, it takes you through a loop. I left email for them, called to no satisfaction. Maybe others reading this can figure it out. Go to vromansbooks.com. It's the oldest bookstore in the Pasadena, CA area.

Anyway, I got his new book. I've read three others by him and I trust he knows what he's talking about.

I go through bouts of fear, anger and disgust. We have seen the attacks and bombing attempts he lists and it just gets worse. The attacks on a peaceful transition of power. I feel powerless. Yes, I vote, but with all the voter suppression, gerrymandering, etc., will the next election be fair and accurate? And YES I realize this is the very attitude and doubt they are promoting! Granted, it's not because of something progressives are doing, but it's what the other side is doing. And yet the outcome is the same.

An interesting entry in our local July 4th parade

I was in our local parade marching with our community garden entry yesterday. Our group came to the end of the route and I was walking back where my mother and her caregiver were sitting. A group in the parade came by that got a lot of cheering: abortionfinder.org! I was stunned. How awesome is that, but how ridiculous that we now have to resort to this kind of thing. I'm in the greater Los Angeles area so not in a hotbed red state. But we can't be too complacent.

Can't even go to the vet without seeing these assholes

Took my cat to the vet, and a customer at the counter had a black facemask on with this message, "This mask is as useless as JOE BIDEN". Dumbass.
