And here we are again, with more news from The Washington Post, plus whatever free online shit catches my eye carefully curated free resources/links/stuff.

A-Section

I know. We partied like nothing had happened at all. Mainly, we stayed home and did our usual shit. We avoid travel on the holidays like … a big bad thing.

Hmm. I could say something about changing the name of the Jefferson Memorial, but no …

Is this the part where we thank you for supporting a free press?

Watch in awe as a federal judge compares as AR-15 to a Swiss Army Knife.

If you search on these terms: site:washingtonpost.com ‘vice president harris’ this will be your top hit.

Coming soon, from The Supremes!

And I’m talking about these Supremes.

Not these Supremes! 🙂

Opinion and Op-Ed

Hopefully, I’m not adding to the problem.

Yeah, enjoy the break. Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok …

Local Opinion

A rabbi, a Presbyterian, a farmer and a student walk into a bar. Except they weren’t in a bar.

Read this, if only for the reference to “Chocolate City.” Which you can learn more (or less) about here.

Book World

Now this sounds like an interesting story.

I will totally have to read this one. Maybe. It reminds me of a funny story (in retrospect).

Obits

Hater shit existed long before social media. Alternate headline: It’s still innocent until proven guilty.

Sports

Let’s go Mets! 🙂

Business

Rock on Crocs!

Um, you know, you might want to try asking a friend. Someone you actually know and trust.

Writers and indie authors and everyone else take note. Everyone’s adopting a subscription model. At least, for now.

Magazine

I’m pondering as fast as I can.

Painting Bravery requires Showing Up. IRL.

Can there be justice 80 years later?

OMG! I had so many thoughts as I read this column!

They kind of went like this:

  • Wow! I remember that little island. In fact, I walked over that island on that bridge.
  • Imagine my shock when the walkway ran out and I ended up sliding/hanging on for dear life as I scootched my ass past one of the bridge’s supporting columns, traffic creating a breeze behind me, until I finally reached the other side. I was 10 (or 11) years old at the time.
  • Remind me. Why do normal sane average people does anyone want to live in New York City?
  • Wow, Gene. Your childhood clearly was much different than mine. The thought of returning to my first childhood residence is almost enough to make me sick not a pleasant thought.
  • Hmm. That is odd. You’d think the cats would eat the geese. Go figure.
  • Oh, man. Only in New York!

And the Funnies! 🙂

Right. Now you’re just starting to piss me off, Dude. 🙂
