I never thought I’d say this, but over the last couple of weeks, I’ve finally started to see what people liked about Pete Buttigieg.

(But I’ll still never vote for someone who cozied up to Zuckerberg for his own advantage.)

I, too, put the continuing existence of the biosphere ahead of “American jobs”

I just bought a collection of 20 Agatha Christie novels for Kindle for $1.99 so brace yourselves

SomeBODY once told me the ‘rona was a phony
I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed
I was lookin’ kinda dumb
With my mask hanging undone

Note: I live in metro New York and it’s freakin’ fantastic here. Covid testing is easy and free, and I got results in 26 hours. We’re not at normal but I feel *safe.*
