      Be happy and be well. Please be careful about Covid. Viral load matters for infection, spending hours in a house with people is a great way to get infected.

I’m voting tomorrow

I received my ballot in the mail last week and filled it out immediately. My plan was to drop it off at the City-County building downtown but they are only open during working hours. From 9-4:30. I didn’t think I could make it.

Fortunately, Allegheny county is opening 4 collection locations starting tomorrow. So I’m planning to go to one located at a nearby park. It opens at 9am. From what I understand it is an election services location. I think you can register, get a ballot printed out, vote and hand it in. Sort of like early voting in other states but this is a first for Pennsylvania.

My ballot is all ready to go. I put it in my secrecy envelope and then signed the outer envelope. Although I have no idea what to expect, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is pent up demand to handing ballots over in person. Allegheny sent out 314,000 ballots. Let’s see who shows up.

Western PA breathes sigh of relief.

Mostly because we can still breathe.

Pittsburgh media can be harsh:

I’m surprised they didn’t call him a jagoff. Well, Election Day is 25 days away. There’s still time…

Forgot to mention that the overwhelming sentiment of commenters on the KDKA thread is running against infectious DC man from coming to the Pittsburgh area.

Death by GoT Distraction

BiFF sent me this today:

Which got us thinking, can we map the gruesome deaths of GoT characters to our public officials? Metaphorically speaking. Think of it like Arya reciting her list every night.

Stephen Miller should be strapped to a chair and eaten by starving immigrant toddlers.

Kellyanne goes ala Littlefinger, facing a tribunal of her children and dispatched by the neglected one who was forced to become a faceless man and earn her living by assassination.

Your turn.
