‪In honor of 4/20 I will say that marijuana should be 100% legal, and also that my never smoking pot again should also be a law.‬

I wore a Belle & Sebastian shirt to a kid’s birthday party and found myself challenged to describe them to another parent. I stumbled on “contemplative, multi-instrumental poetry.”

Calling for impeachment is the right thing to do for our country, and is good PR and marketing for a Presidential candidate. I can see how it’s a PR gamble in general for Democrats, though.

The systemic problem that unites Republicans and Democrats is favoring electability over fulfilling their pledge of public service.

I sincerely hope Robert Mueller is enjoying a margarita, beer, tea, or another relaxing beverage of his choice.

If impeachment + removal from office meant negation of all judicial appointments, we’d have a much hungrier impeachment process.

Attention kids studying Geometry: today I had to recall the equation of a line, and how to calculate discrete points on a line, for my high-paying programmer job. So … “will you ever really use this”? Yes, If you’re lucky.

Some might say “why are we supporting France’s downtrodden?”, and that would be a very interesting conversation.

A power play for French politicians would be to demand that all Notre Dame reconstruction benefactors double their contribution with support for France’s downtrodden.

The last thing I want is for my kids to mindlessly follow my lead. I want them to think through and understand things much better than I have.

I took pains to explain things abstractly first, attributing to the workers and to management what each desires. Then I explained that the public has to choose whether to respect the union or not. Finally, I confessed that I generally respect the union.

Had a long drive with my family today, and the subject of Stop & Shop’s strike came up. My kids were genuinely interested, so I rejoiced in the opportunity to explain the power of the union. 💪

The Trump name is cursed for generations. People closest to him are either aligned with his agenda, or too oblivious to recognize the damage. They should speak out and probably change their surnames.

It’s 70F+ in Boston and this graybeard hipster is stretching the selfie distance to make sure you can see the Belle & Sebastian shirt.

The news frames “sending migrants to sanctuary cities” as a punishment. It’s a gift. It’s why we declare our cities/towns as sanctuary, because we are compassionate and because we recognize the value of immigrants. Go ahead, buy their bus tickets!

It’s Red Sweater Friday here in my new “kinda working for a living” house, and I don’t know how much I got done for myself but I did file three bugs to Apple so …

Workers at my local supermarket Stop & Shop went on strike today.

I stand with union workers on strike and will not shop again until the strike is over.

‪My “New England Spring” look is a mix of Layers and Daring Fireball. The only thing missing is Marzipan!‬
