BBC News:

UK PM Boris Johnson resisted Covid lockdown last autumn as he thought the people dying were "essentially all over 80", ex-aide Dominic Cummings tells BBC.

"We can't kill the economy just because of people dying over 80"

Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson's former aide, claims the prime minister "put his own political interests ahead of people's lives."

Remind me, which city is "City of Ripped Backsides" again? And does that make it a good city or a bad city?

Felony... good.  Guns illegal.
8 months seems a little short given that they were there to kill elected officials and overthrow the country, but I don't know anything about sentencing guidelines.

I read a tweet this morning and have been stewing all day.

Some doofus compared getting the vaccine to Tuskogee.

I would like to beat that person amongst the head and shoulders. .

Nancy Pelosi, from what I understand, needs to sign off on it.

I have a strong feeling this is yet another GQP set up where they know what Pelosi is going to do, and the republicans can go crying "censorship," "cancel culture" and "opposition."

Meh, if I were her, I wouldn't bother vetoing any of those.  Sure, 2 are overt farkwits, but those two lack the power to do anything, and anything they leak is going to make themselves look bad.

for those who care, the Blue Origin "New Shepard" launch is Tiesday at 9am ET.  CBS will show it live, as will, I imagine others. I'm more excited for Wally Funk, an 82-yr old women's aviation pioneer, getting a chance to finally get to space than Bezos himself going.  Flight will feature both the oldest and youngest astronauts to attempt to reach space.

Haaaaa...

No but they offered out of the goodness of their hearts (they are truly amazing people, also letting us put our garbage in their cans for the couple of weeks we're there). Old friends of my folks.

It is bittersweet being here. So many memories and with Nana and Grandad and Mom and Dad gone the time has come to say goodbye to a place dear to my heart.

When did you plant them?

I have sunflower seeds that I've been intending to plant, there's this broken-up rock-filled hump in the yard where a very large tree used to be, and I want to plant sunflowers and Black-Eyed-Susans on it so I don't have to dig out the rocks and know to mow around it.

What advice do you have? :)

Just last week at work a young coworker said he never heard of Iggy Pop, when I said he was the one who actually wrote this David Bowie song playing on the radio. (But I got it wrong, the radio was actually playing Ashes to Ashes, and not China Girl.)

So then I played Passenger for him. I meant to play the Siouxie & the Banshees version later, the one I fell in love with, but I didn't want to play it back to back. That's not always fun. Then I forgot to play it for him. Maybe I ruined his weekend.

It is weird playing a song and hearing him say, "Oh, my grandpa always listens to this song!"
