β€œNice and close, grab her leg, perfect! Next!

Yeah, rub your arse on his thigh, lean back into him. Great, next.

Right…ride him like a sexy little pony. Dry hump that leg! Yes! Next!

Ok, I’m gonna need clear fucking daylight between you two. Barely notice each other. Cool.”

I'm curious, maybe I'm missing some news somewhere, but I don't know that Amazon has been setting up to make company towns anywhere. What'd I miss?

So we all know that Amazon wants to make company cities.

And the news keeps treating this as a good idea. Or at least not a horrifying one.

For that reason I’m providing you with a history lesson on the Coal Warsβ€”a tale of a company town.

Helen and I are in Chicago, her for the second time and me for the first since COVID-19 became a thing. Every part of this trip has been that modern mixture of weird and prosaic.

Well, there we have it, folks. New phone inbound.

God damn, this is a harrowing read about domestic abuse, college and NFL football, and the many ways systems protect powerful men from the consequences of their abuse.

I wonder how many more settlements like this are going to come down before cities start requiring them to come from police union pension funds?

This thread is a novel and it’s really intense. It definitely leaves a bad taste in my mouth re: Pathfinder

Welp, Paizo just fired their two most senior customer service people (one a woman, one a POC) for apparently being too willing to push back on abusive management.

Of course, this also means that the last person they might retaliate against for me airing dirty laundry is gone.

"The night they got the bikes back, they had little reason to believe justice would be served. It was their own detective work that had succeeded when the system failed them."

The cops come off as systematically indifferent to delivery bikers here. Shocking.

2020 and 2021 have been the year of the delivery worker in every way except safety and stability. This is a long read about NYC's gig economy workers' safety and organization. It's worth the time it'll take you to read.

Of course she's a partisan hack. More so even than Brett "Beer Me" Kavanaugh is. She's an ostentatiously anti-choice pro-theocracy judge, and about as good for the country as COVID-19.
