"The Truth Is Paywalled But The Lies Are Free"
so around a century ago, there was a comic strip called The Outbursts of Everett True, where the titular character saw people being rude jackasses and decided to deal with this harshly and folks a lot of these still hold up perfectly in modern times
but i am delighted to announce
somebody's found the comics about mask-wearing
and They're Good, Folks
(uncaptioned, feel free to help out with descriptions here, i'd appreciate it)
Seriously, I hope people stop referring to the things they create as "content". You're not just making generic stuff to fill up space on a website owned by people who don't care about it. Your work deserves more respect than that. You deserve more respect than that.
Well, today I've written 2200 words of analysis of the videos of last weekend's fighter practice. Which was still only two of us.

Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston finally took action to cancel the Texas Republican Convention, which they intended to hold in a convention center in downtown Houston next week. The city owns the center.
Turner referred to a clause in the contract that allows either party to cancel any event for occurrences out of its control, SPECIFICALLY INCLUDING "epidemics in the City of Houston."
The chairman of the Texas GOP has vowed to fight the cancellation in court.

There's a Long Dark special event running this month, where the temperature inside and out has been dropped 10C and blizzards are longer and more frequent. To compensate, you can now find maple syrup and ketchup chips @alpine_thistle - this sounds like your preferred play style, IIRC?
with reduced restrictions in place, I was able to drive to my serjeant's house on Sunday. For the first time in months, we were able to suit up and get some helmet time in. (With distancing, of course, except during actual combat.)
The good is that without having fought for months, my defense is still solid, and my offense is pretty good - some of the new shots I've been working on the pell are also good.
The bad is that my stamina is way down.

Donate to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund:
Don't just decry America, help support and bring about its future
