112.01/ Week one-hundred and two, September 3-9, 2022, thread begins here.

Week 111 below.
112.02/ This is good news about new registrations.

We need to make them pay for the lawless, corrupt and cruel SCOTUS and it's theocratic minority rule.
112.03/ I joined twitter because I saw how good it was for *immediate* news and also live commentary for sports (which is why I still keep my sports teams hashtags in my bio. I want to remember a simpler time).
112.04/ Columbo on Amazon Prime's Freevee.
112.06/ At enormous risk to herself @keffals, along with many (necessarily anonymous) other activists, brought down the terror murder-site KF. Thank you for your courage and hard work!
112.07/ @atrupar puts in countless of painful hours cataloging and commenting on the abyss of MAGA filth for moments such as these: pulling a perfect contrary example in real time to head off a counter-narrative.
112.08/ I only learned about Rev. Wright recently and I'm glad the PTS just re-named their library after him. Maybe PU could also think of renaming one of the shameful buildings as well? [Signed, me, PU95]……
112.10/ The barest sliver of a silver lining to arise from the utter debasement of the judiciary under the GOP is to see the majority of the legal profession catch up to the rest of us in perceiving the courts as being dangerously compromised.
112.11/ I learned this from Dave Barry @rayadverb (how? as he said in his travel guide: "[Des Moines] means 'some of these Moines'.")…
112.12/ Thank goodness for the frum dress-code limiting my outdoorwear to pure Blues Brothers chic because otherwise I'd be wearing cargo shorts, fishing vests and - of course - sandals with big ol' dark socks.
112.14/ Good, this is an important precedent. Keep it going!…
112.15/ Thread by the Madam Secretary herself. Good in itself but also useful for blocking the trolls in the replies/QT
112.16/ This is correct and I will make sure I keep the right phrasing in mind.
112.17/ I'm an American so I literally do not have any emotional connection to the queen and the country I'm proud to have declared independence from; that said, I'm also a news junkie and I'm assuming every phone alert will be about her death. So, NYT/WP, take it easy, OK?
112.19/ OK, last word about today's news. When I hear the name "Camilla" I immediately & exclusively think about Gonzo the Great's consort.…
I can't help it.
Also, it's probably bad taste to play this, no?…
112.20/ Must admit, until the death of QE2 I didn't realize how deeply, viscerally, emotionally I am a small-r republican. Monarchies are bad, guys! And, yes, it's ironic that the big-R Republicans in America are outright monarchists (see also the monarchy in 'peoples republics')
112.21/ Science can be beautiful. Like inventing the word "sploot" as a technical term. (h.t. @acypess).
112.22/ I taught my kids how "wife and mother" is a dog-whistle to defend oppressive structures. Monarchists trying to deflect the antipathy towards QE2 by saying that phrase about her. C'mon, man. You defend her because she symbolizes England and, duh, that's why she's vilified!
112.23/ #NachasAlert: My son has a Dvar Torah in this week's parsha sheet from his HS.…
112.24/ You can't fool me, that's a lego minifigure!
112.25/ Mike Webster. For his hall of fame play but also because he basically gave his life for the team and his death opened the way to better safety.
112.27/ There were so many great comments/humor about QE2, here's one for now but because of bad computer craziness, I'll need to wait until motzei Shabbas to do more
112.28/ #ChochmatNashim for #KiTetze 5782, Torah articles by Orthodox women scholars
112.29/ So much computer trouble today. Gevalt. Please stay safe everyone and #ShabbatShalom
