There is an article in the Atlantic about @Horse_Ebooks
I don't know whether to laugh with joy or cry with sadness at the current state of journalism.
Reading the article makes it make a bit more sense where they view the current events through a tweet by the account's usage on Twitter, but it's still wild to see.
Democrats, Roe, and Voting
Last week was rough. When the Roe v. Wade decision came out, being embedded in social media, was rough. And then comes the messaging from Democrats of "Well, just vote" - and, yes they aren't wrong. But it's an incredibly frustrating message for voters.
I feel it's sort of like the people who get angry when people in entertainment, sports, or gaming (and other fields) bring up politics and they go "Leave politics out of this." But. We can't. This is life. Politics is part of life.
This isn't an achievement to be had once and then forgotten. It's an ongoing effort and it requires folks to continue to give a shit. Roe v. Wade being overturned is a big moment and going to make people care and pay attention again.
Will it be enough to bring in two more Democratic senators? Who knows. But that's the point of this messaging. There isn't much which can be done until something changes. And to change it, people have to be invested in the country's politics and vote.

I’m gonna say this before things get out of hand on legal SCOTUS. B/c it is true that many brilliant attys & profs, especially women, have been predicting this moment since 2018. The voices of the “calm down” folks (largely men) were given greater prominence and credibility.— Sherrilyn Ifill (@Sifill_LDF) June 28, 2022
After several months with my Surface Duo 2, I still love it. But I find I miss more phone notifications than I would with previous phones. Giving a new Galaxy Watch a try to see how I like it and if I feel it's a net value add to my daily gear.
