I guess calling out sexual harassment isn't ok with David here. Image
I liked Al Franken as a Senator but I was disappointed in his behavior. I don't think it's acceptable. He can reenter society when he acknowledges what he did was wrong and understands why his actions made those women uncomfortable. I haven't seen that from him.
Franken has not demonstrated to me that he's willing to take responsibility and it's very disappointing.

I assume the people calling for this will be the first in line to sign up, right?
tell that to my Dad who died of lung cancer stemming from exposure to agent orange in Vietnam. Image
Vietnam veterans didn't get any sense of community. The government abandoned them. Vietnam veterans have spent years fighting a patchwork system designed to deny them the benefits they deserve

In a sign of just how inelastic North Carolina is, Auditor Beth Wood only won reelection in 2020 by under 2%. She faced an opponent with no qualifications and a history of stalking. She lost a number of rural counties that she carried fairly easily four years earlier.
You can see the drop in support among minorities downballot. Look at Charlotte.
Wood carried Robeson by 17% in 2016 but lost it by five points in 2020.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper won reelection by 4.5% last year. Looking at what changed from Obama's 2% loss here in 2012, Cooper lost ground in the Black Belt and parts of the Sandhills. Cooper's 21% improvement in Wake County overpowered much of his rural losses. Image
Here are the top five counties that swung the most towards Cooper and the ones that swung the most towards Forest. Image
Wake (big urban/suburban county)
Cabarrus (suburb of Charlottte)
Watauga (Home to App State)
Henderson (Asheville suburbs)

Utterly unfathomable what is going on in Brazil. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
Yesterday Brazil reported about 27,000 more cases than the US.
Deep within the Amazon, there still exists several (mostly) uncontacted tribes. I do worry about how they're dealing with this.

You can buy a period accurate Blunderbuss for under $700. What is a Blunderbuss? It was basically a proto shotgun for the black powder era. Remained in use for about 200 years.
modern guns don't interest me. antiques are where it's at. Love the black powder era in particular.
black powder era guns were wildly inaccurate, heavy, and required lengthy reloads.
