I won’t be at the solidarity rally tomorrow after all because I got snowed in up here in fly-over country. So I thought I’d do a post of two unrelated items lacking the sturm und drang of most of the week’s topics.
“I was really hoping to talk directly to Scott,” I said. He said that could be arranged and that I should just leave my number. I explained to Gilkes, “My goddamn maid, Maria, put my phone in the washer. I’d have her deported, but she works for next to nothing.” Gilkes found this amusing. “I’m calling from the VOID—with the VOID, or whatever it’s called. You know, the Snype!”

What else not-so-serious is going on?
