Before electric light existed, Lewis Carroll created a grid with boxes that he called a “Nychtograph,” and an alphabet made of lines and corner dots that could be written into the grids. He kept it under his pillow, and used it to write down ideas that he had in the middle of night, because he couldn’t write in the dark and have it be legible.
And vice versa. So it’s a match made in heaven.
Not to mention that Puddles DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HIS NAME MEANS.
Tell that to the person who has voted in every election, and isn’t allowed to vote because of a misspelling. Or the woman whose ID still has her maiden name.
The Republicans pass voter ID – and then shut down the places where you can get one. It’s so cynical I wonder how they sleep at night.

Yes, and that’s why Republicans are making noises about repealing the 17th Amendment – so the Senate is gerrymandered, too.
I think gerrymandering should end completely, and election districts should be drawn by computer algorithm, overseen by civil servants. But why do you say the judge was biased? When has gerrymandering been overturned in court?
Right now, Democrats have to win the total nationwide vote by more than 10% to take control of Congress. That’s nuts. And wrong.
So sad. He was a wonderful fellow. Rest in Peace.
They’ve been saying “Happy Holidays” since the 1940s. At least.
Suddenly, the phrase is offensive,
And the people who are so thin-skinned they get offended when someone gives them a friendly holiday greeting but it wasn’t exactly the one they wanted call OTHER people “snowflakes.”
Dear right-wingers: NOBODY is offended by the phrase “Merry Christmas.” Some of us are just aware that not every one we talk to is a Christian, and they might be celebrating something else.
Oh – and Christmas isn’t the month of December. Christmas Season is December 25 to January 6. You don’t see me walking around demanding that everyone say “Blessed Advent,” do you?
“Night of the Meek,” but I don’t know of anything unique about it.
How many times in my life have I said, “Kliban – what the hell is wrong with you?”
