I went to Charlotte Motor Speedway to see race cars last night, not some 77-year-old political cosplayer swoop in for a pander-fest squeezed in between court dates...

I've never feared for my safety quite as much as I did when I realized I was literally surrounded by MAGA brain stew.

An educated populace, en masse, does not vote Republican. That's all there is to it.

“This is part of a larger campaign that we call the ‘ed scare,’ which is a broad effort to heighten intimidation and anxiety around what can and cannot be taught and discussed in public spaces,” said Kasey Meehan, the director of the Freedom to Read project at PEN America."

I love coffee for a myriad of reasons, but I don't think the aroma gets enough credit. There are few things in life as soothing as the smell of a freshly-brewed mug.

I saw a FB post several years back that boiled down to, "When we call Trump supporters stupid, trust us when we say that's the most charitable option. The other things we could call you are far worse."

Your greatest asset as a writer?

✨ Curiosity. ✨

No matter what you write, never lose your curiosity. Read everything you can. Find topics completely unrelated to your day-to-day interests. Study. Poke around. Research. Let yourself fall down the proverbial rabbit hole.

If it seems like I've been around less of late, it's because I have. I'm cutting way back on my political content consumption in an effort to protect my mental health. Rage with no outlet is not good for me.

Utah folks👇🏾
Peggy Stuart #FirstWave @PeggyStuart
Why support a Democrat for a seat in Utah? Reasons:
1) It forces the GOP to spend money to defend the seat
2) The candidate might win!
I know this candidate personally. He has been involved in Utah politics for a long time and is well-liked.
Please echo and/or donate, or support any way you can.

I remain convinced that, in a lot of ways, social media is the worst thing to happen to #NASCAR . So much complaining, it's gotten to the point where avoiding the internet is the only way I can enjoy the sport anymore.

What's a song that radicalized you in some way? This one is a non-obvious choice (there were others, earlier) but the video (& Aimee Mann's performance) is still a gut punch (trigger warning for DV, emotional abuse)

Reading 🤝 Writing

Stephen King had it right when he said, "If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write."

Overheard on a commercial: "The best of nature, with the best of science!"

Now, I'm no expert, but... isn't nature also science?

(I get what they likely meant, just found the wording a bit odd.)

I'm tired of this narrative of higher education as liberal indoctrination factory.

Students aren't learning about taxing the rich in biology lab. They're not being fed anti-war talking points in their engineering classes.

I don't anymore, but as a teenager, comic books were the only reading I could do for entertainment; anything else was too much like school (and I hated almost every book school made me read).

I was a *huge* X-Men fan back then.

For the sake of my TBR pile, I seldom, if ever, re-read a book. And often, those I do re-read are for a specific purpose (i.e., a book on writing).

Q3: Do you re-read books for enjoyment, or are you done when you've finished a book? #SpoutAbout #Books

All things being equal, I'm a physical book guy (hardcover and paperback). But given how much I used to travel, even I have to admit e-readers are damned convenient.
