RIP my darling boy. It's been 5 years. If you do one thing today, honor Aaron's memory by calling your Senators and Representatives in Congress and begging them to support 'sLaw to reform the CFAA (Computer Fraud and Abuse Act).

Saw John Lithgow’s one man show with last night. Completely agree with here, and don’t really get the mixed reviews elsewhere. It was delightful. A warm, sincere, very funny antedote for all the madness right now.

As with “grab em by the pussy,” there’s a bit too much middle-school tee-heeing over a crude term. The offensive thing isn’t the word “shithole.” It’s the idea being born in a poor place makes you a lesser human. Tainted. Unworthy. That’s offensive however delicately you say it.

1. Trump thinks immigrants from Africa aren’t capable of succeeding in the US. 2. He also thinks a guy born in Kenya got himself elected president. 3. If he could run again, that guy would trounce Trump.
