RIP RBGAs long as we're talking about this, let's remember this crap. When it seemed like Hillary Clinton was going to win in 2016, Senate Republicans (including ones considered respectable like John McCain) openly said they would obstruct any vote on anyone she nominated for Scalia's seat or any other judicial position, for the entirety of her presidency.

HarrisI was hoping for Tammy Duckworth above all; I've admired her for years. Someone suggested that if he's elected, Biden should make her director of the VA, but I wonder, why not Secretary of Defense? Go »
CoronavirusYeah. Part of the cause is false myths. For so long, America has told itself a myth that it's the best country in the world, the richest and smartest and most powerful and certainly most favored by God, that we're bound to become fractured by our collective cognitive dissonance as our inevitable decline continues (and lately, accelerates).

Failure to DeliverYeah, Kelly and I get weird substitutions too when we order groceries online. They can't find product A so they substitute product B, then they can't find product C so they substitute product A, in the same order -- huh? Go »
Changing LabelsSomebody put the whole movie on YouTube. I can't help but notice the comments debating whether or not the alternate-universe events portrayed in the movie could have plausibly happened, completely missing the point. Go »
George Floyd, Minneapolis, and BeyondI confess some guilt over not saying or doing more during this movement. This is huge, and hugely important, and I've let myself be distracted by stuff going on in my professional and personal life rather than pay closer attention or take action. Go »
Secret SuccessesI got into a conversation recently with some friends that I wonder if you can expand upon: Albums that are least-loved by the public that you think are secretly the artist's best work. Go »
Hitch's HustleI saw a short documentary about Alfred Hitchcock the other night. It showed some of his many cameo roles on-screen in his films, and clips from when he hosted his own long-running TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and assorted other media appearances like TV commercials that he made and many broadcast interviews that he gave.

Office HoursI'm discontinuing the office hours on Sunday night. There's no need for it at this time, nobody's taking advantage of it because there's no point (although I'm surprised no one used it to get ahead during the last RB tournament), and although I still had the time set aside in my calendar until now, I'm mostly working on non-Funeratic projects during that block of time.

Buffets of DoomYears ago, I trashed the salad buffet chain Sweet Tomatoes on this website, after misinterpreting a staffer's mildly insensitive attempt to make conversation as some kind of corporate psychological manipulation. Go »
Annoying Media TropesLori, I'm no fan of the "it was all a dream" trope either. It has been used as such a cheap gimmick by so many writers, as either a retcon to fix poor plotting or a lazy shock to the audience, that it has been ruined. Go »
