Park and playground packed with toddlers and parents. Depressing thought occurs to me: I’ve been a homeowner out here since all of these people were in middle school.

today is "bulk item pickup" day, where trucks come through & take large items/yard debris. They ask that you NOT put out your broken big TVs. My neighbor did anyway. City guys are out there trying to angle it into the cab of the truck. They must hope its repairable 🤣

These assholes heroically resigning with 13 days left. Wow. So brave. SO BRAVE. Thank you for your service we the people united we stand god bless america.

I resigned from public service a year before he even threw his hat in the ring because it was screamingly obvious what they were turning into. I told friends I didn’t want to end up crying “I was just a bookkeeper, I didn’t know about the camps.”

Where's my riot.
