    US Politics: Mad Max Beyond Corona Dome

    I'm in a weird place. I don't have to go in, but I got to maintain contact with my clients. Which works out to me talking, by phone and video chat, with a lot of scared and stressed families with mental health issues and no real solutions.

    I know. Welcome to being an essential worker. Did you watch Walz's update and the new shelter orders?

    Muh muh muh means tuh testing - Covid #6

    I lurk that area. I am down in Bloomington over by Dread Scott, but I bike through that area all the time. I heard through some of my county contacts that we are going to be closing non-essential stuff early this week.

    M-m-m-my Corona! NCOVID-19 #5

    Fully shutdown, I don't think so, not with bars and such shutdown and business voluntarily shutdown. The counties are shutting down. I hope the legislature passes SF4200.

    M-m-m-my Corona! NCOVID-19 #5

    Well, in Minnesota I work in social services and do client visits with children and adults with mental illness out in the community. I was just directed that for the rest of the month to do only phone visits with the possibility being discussed of teleconferencing visits. I am not an emergency response unit, but I am a step or two removed from that. This is kind of a big thing.

    COVID19/4 Keep calm and wash your hands

    I didn't realize you were back in Minneapolis. I know my wife's downtown offices have closed for three weeks. I think we are easing into that point right now. I hope people rise up and our state people are smart and coordinated.

    US Politics: Pandemic Political Petard

    Or keeping to the middle, endorsing Biden to maintain a relationship there, and to get out of the way, because isn't Bernie favored to win Minnesota? If so it maintains a relationship there.

    Board games!

    What Wert said, but even then sometimes things just don't break your way. I play with a group of friends and the crisis management aspect is great! Of course, this is what we do for a living.

    US Politics: Show Trials & Tribulations

    I think the closest we will ever get on a large scale is a combination of the two. Have an open primary and give people the option to caucus if they want.

    Has it all gone quiet since the TV show finished?

    That is what I did too

    Star wars...which befouls the OT legacy more...PT

    I really liked how they choreographed the light saber fights in both trilogies. There were more complicated emotions going on in TLJ, but TRoS did something really neat with theirs. You could tell what side of the force, what emotions they were experiencing with the fighting style they were using and how it played out. You had the graceful evasion and elusion of the Jedi and the powerful of the Sith. Usually, I think the films used the colors of saberd to illustrate it, but here they couldn't do that, it was a nice touch.

    [SPOILERS] Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker

    Wow, that was a jerk and dismissive response. Plot Armor? There are plenty of incompetent and petulant people who are like in positions of power right now in our actual lives. And they do that without super powers.

    Watchmen: Nostalgia is a helluva drug. (spoilers)

    I was more disagreeing with the revenge part. I think she is perfectly fine with destroying Dr. M if it meets her end goal. I just think she wouldn't have been doing it for vengeance. I like the merged consciousness idea.

    Watchmen: Nostalgia is a helluva drug. (spoilers)

    I don't think Trieu wants to kill Dr. M for revenge. There is a scene where she is giving a speech about the failure of Nostalgia. She basically states it fails because people keep going back to relive and focus on their traumas, instead of using the past to heal and move forward. One of the themes of this show is how major traumas define us, and the world of the Watchmen is rife with trauma, be it racial or "extra-terrestrial." I think Trieu's plan is to do something about that. It is interesting that she is recording all the prayers in her Millennial Clock. I wonder if it isn't about killing Dr. Manhatten but trapping what he is in there and doing something with that power, not sure what. So she may want Keene to succeed in "destroying" him, but wants to then harness that energy for her purpose. One that Will agrees with.

    US politics - When the Barr's so low.

    I once heard someone say that Tom Cruise gives the impression that he is an actor playing a Human.
