Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

Re: What are you reading?

Impish, have you tried Libby or Overdrive? You may be able to get audio books from your library.

Re: World News Thread

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

The Democrats have lost *me* over their failure to respond meaningfully to last June's and this January's riots, so I can only imagine the effect that's had on *real* moderates.

Re: What are you reading?

I picked up something called Peaces. Two men go on a honeymoon train trip in a sort of a moving Wonderland. I was still deciding if it was whimsical or pretentious when Fugitive Telemetry dropped in the queue and I decided I didn't care. Fugitive Telemetry is great, though. Murderbot is my favorite ...

Yes, and he did well for himself in some of his lives.
