Stuff I like:

Taking a break from my usual complainy-pants ways to post about things that are going on in the world that I actually like. Here goes: Patton Oswalt is engaged. This makes me very happy. HBO leads the Emmy nominations, and Netflix is next.This bodes well for people who enjoy quality television, if any. Free drones. H and I (well, they’re mine, but H is better at flying them) have gotten a total of four free drones for review. The most…

Racism: More than pointy hats and N-words

Like many of you, I have a family. And within that family, there are a wide range of people who believe things I think are patently batshit. My favorite Aunt told me she’d never vote Bernie because “he’s a socialist.” I have a cousin who swears the min wage shouldn’t be raised because it mostly applies to kids working part time, and that Citizens United is a “free speech” issue. I enjoy spirited debates when I encounter beliefs like that,…
