    • Who Goes To Prison For America’s Crimes? The Whistleblowers.
      There’s a joke about the CIA and torture, in that the only person who went to prison for torturing people was the guy who revealed the torture. Daniel Hale, the guy who revealed that drone bombing killed 90% innocents, is now off to his stint in jail.

Walk home: the world’s most expensive hair cut.

It’s a glorious day in downtown Pittsburgh today. The weather is sunny, dry and about 80°. So I ventured into the downtown office today. There still aren’t that many people in the buildings. We have the option to work from home and many want to keep that up. But I need the exercise and stimulation of trying to remember everything to and from work. Like a mask. So I don’t get thrown off the bus. It has happened. (It was in my pocket)

Uh oh.

The check made me gasp. I have to reason with myself that I didn’t spend any money on clothes in the past year. Or eating out. Soooo, there’s that. But still. Omg. That was painful.

But it’s not blindingly ultra platinum anymore. I don’t look like a ghost on Skype.

And I got a modified Joan Jett out of it. 😏

I love it.

So I walked to the bus stop singing this:
