Yeah, you get the feeling he buried a lot of his kinder, more humane feelings in his bon mots. I feel that gentleness the most in one of his other fairy tales, The Selfish Giant. The ending always makes me cry.

Not uncommon for justices to offer their so-called “dissents from denial,” usu to show why scotus should settle an imp Q w plausible arguments on both sides.
Here Alito & Thomas declare *certainty* as to how the case ought to come out. That’s unusual-and out of line w judicial modesty

BREAKING: Supreme Court declines to review decision involving race-conscious diversity-enhancing admissions procedure at Virginia magnet school. Alito and Thomas note their dissent.

Read that one in college as part of a collection of Wilde's works. Broke my heart as that one of the few times he didn't succumb to his ironic cynicism and just showed vulnerable sincerity. I'd put it right up there with The Giving Tree.

Have you ever wondered why Germans didn’t do anything about Hitler? Well, the rest of the world is wondering exactly that about Americans and Trump.

I just reported this bullshit to Gofundme. You should consider doing the same. The more reports, the higher the chance it gets taken down.

If you don't know what to say, say something to the effect of that it's not in Gofundme's best interest to allow people to collect funds for a known criminal.

I was 50 when I decided to get my Master’s degree in Library & Information Science and start a new career as a librarian. People questioned why and whether I could do it. I had to #forge on despite doubts, graduated with a 4.0 gpa and now love being a librarian.

Did you learn in school how Black activists during WWII went to the West Coast to protect Japanese Americans and their property when the U.S. government put them in interment camps and their biggest advocate was a gay Black man? I didn’t think so.

Judging someone for being a bigot is NOT equivalent to bigots' prejudice against marginalized groups. Not remotely. It's an absurd argument that at best shows one's ignorance...but more likely reveals one's bigoted views.

This might be completely mind-blowing to some of you, but there are plenty of people who attack Black people to keep them from being successful.

It's not going to work.

I have one thing to say about the recent data breach: I went to look and see how many times my email has been “pwned”. It’s 9 in the past 5 years. I’ve been told by the owner of the site in exactly one of them: Spoutible. @cbouzy ‘s transparency and integrity are unassailable and all I need to know.

If Biden wins (and he very likely will), & if he can flip the House (likely) & retain the Senate (🤞🤞🙏)...what's already started strong will go down as one of the greatest & most consequential presidencies ever.

Joe Biden: saved my pension and the pensions of hundreds of thousands of my fellow unionized employees

Trump: paid $20k to scabs to stage a fake union rally at a non union plant

Vote for Joe Biden

Friends, I started writing my book today. Although I've been indirectly working on it for many years, today I'm officially beginning the writing process. I look forward to sharing it with you once it's published.

Friends, I started writing my book today - YouTube

Two days ago, it was -45ºC/-49ºF in the wilderness around my cabin in the Yukon, with the wind chill making it feel like -55. Nature was stunningly beautiful...

‼️180 DEGREE TURN: My diehard-conservative neighbor in Orlando has gone from fuming that Biden needs to do something about the border to fuming that *Republicans* need to do something about the border. He’s furious about what he calls the House GOP’s “bullshit political games.”

When creating one of my earth-art mandalas, I'm never really sure how long it will #take . This one was made on my father's birthday a few years ago. I placed it in front of the headstone at my parents gravesite.❤️

President Biden: "Trump's $2T tax cut when he was president benefited the super wealthy. But was never paid for, and it completely blew up the Federal Deficit. We brought that deficit down. And all the progress we've made comes down to a simple proposition: Promises made and promises kept"

#DailyPictureTheme Most people who know me know that my goal as a photographer is to #take a perfect picture of a full or almost full moon. I work really hard at it and have some beautiful shots, like October 2018.
