Spam ships, passing in the night: After asking whether I take credit cards, 'Mark Hamill' closed w/"Kindly get back to me here or on phone so that we will work together as one panther." I'd love to be one panther with Luke Skywalker, but he didn't include his phone number. <sigh>

The thing about the Parkland students isn't that they're always spot-on—they've had better and worse moments as communicators. But they're at least as effective at politics as most professional pundits who have done it for years. Naturally, that's very threatening to the pundits.

Yes yes yes! The first time my mother saw Saturn through my telescope, she actually didn't believe it. She thought something was broken. And yeah, one hypothesis is that it's a bunch of broken moons…
