The journal and inking design of the Andromeda OS that Microsoft was developing for the Surface Duo hardware before deciding to use Android instead reminds me a bit of the Newton MessagePad. I like what I see Microsoft was doing here and wish they had kept working on it.

We have problems folks when we start to make laws to prevent discomfort. The irony is that such laws are being promoted by conversatives, who normally argue to keep government out of people’s lives. If you are unwilling to feel discomfort you are not willing to grow.

An individual should not be made to feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race.

In my opinion, the reactions to Critical Race Theory are telling and seem to prove the point.

Another Meat Loaf song in the soundtrack of my life is Paradise By The Dashboard Light that is associated to a friend’s wedding.

You might have heard the phrase “sound track of your life.” One of the earliest songs on my sound track is Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad, which for some reason my mind associates with the first dance I went to in middle school. Not that I danced at all, but that was one of the songs played. The memory comes back today due to learning that Meat Loaf has passed away.

I’ve made some tweeks to the CSS of this site that I think make the text easier to read. I hope that you like the result.

A question that should be answered on the government’s COVID test FAQ, how long is the shelf life of the tests? Or how long do they last? If I get the free tests now, do I have to use them right away? Per the recommendations for when to take the tests, I don’t have a need right now, but I may in the future.

Last year Heather Cox Richardson wrote about what the current troubles in the United States are really all about. It’s worth reading again.

I am using the Arabica theme for my blog design and while I like the font face I think it is too light and thus hard to read, so I need to figure out how to change to change the text font.

Mike Caulfield provides good food for thought about over generalizing misinformation:

Instead of seeing versions of hearsay (non-institutional systems of news and analysis) as damaging institutional systems, we could choose to see the hearsay system itself as the thing under attack. That is, in the age of social media, a valuable system of non-institutional knowledge is increasingly gameable and gamed, rendered useless by a variety of threats and incentives that are polluting not the institutional space, but the hearsay space.
